HOLD U TIGHT / a protective usb fixer

HOLD U TIGHT
HOLD U TIGHT

HOLD U TIGHT is a USB fixer, it can protect USB joint from damages caused by excessive distortion and shaking.
Considering most damages of USB joint are caused by unsteady connection between phones and USB joints, I hope to design a clip to avoid shaking and distortion. However, since the plugins of most phones are placed at the bottom, just next to the HOME button, I add cushions between the clip and phones, to make HOME button function properly.
Cushions are added into HOLD U TIGHT to make HOME button function properly and avoid disconnection. You can press the clip to operate HOME button.
