HOW TO – iPod Shuffle keychain cap on the cheap

HOW TO – iPod Shuffle keychain cap on the cheap

JimK didn’t want to pay a lot for a keyring cap for his shuffle, so he made his own, he writes – “I recently picked up two refurbished iPod Shuffles from Apple. They’re selling them cheap now that the new model is out. They seem to be sold out of the 512MB model for $29, but as of Nov. 9 2006, they still have the 1GB model for $59. My wife and I wanted to throw them on our keyring so that we’d always have them around if we found ourselves in a waiting room, etc.

The problem is, the caps that attack to keyrings are either stupidly expensive for what they are, or they come with a whole “case system” of lanyards and cases and crap we don’t want. Since Apple included a lanyard cap in the box, I started looking around my desk to see what I could do. A few minutes later I had a working keychain cap.”Link.
