Making a Comdom Case for your PDA/Phone

This is a cheap and simple way to protect your expensive phone/pda from water and the elements. I go fishing a lot and it's useful to have a cheap way to protect my pda phone if it gets splashed or God forbid....falls into the sea!

OK start of with a cheap condom.

Take it out and you will find it is coated with lubricant.

Wash it thoroughly with water, both inside and out. The lubricant washes off easily.

Dry it properly both inside and out. You can dry it out with tissue also. Make sure all water is removed.
Stretch the condom out between your fingers and start slipping it down onto your gadget.

Halfway there. Slip it in all the way and get rid of the bubbles.
Stretch it out for a good fit.

Make a small knot at the base
Cut it off close to the knot.
And there you have it, a waterproof case for your pda. You can even access all the buttons and touchscreen.
View from the back. Make sure the micophone is not blocked by the knot. Call quality is acceptable as the layer is very thin and does not block sound very much.
And there you have it...complete with a little souveneir at the top!
Hope you find it useful!

Here is a short video I made on Youtube to demonstrate how it's done!

Actually there are actually some cases which use the same principle, but this is a cheaper way.

excellent idea! I will immediately buy a pack for my next field trip. I have a suggestion for those planing to use it on board boats: don't cut off the end after knoting; just blow up the rest and make some more knots. Your PDA will float until you can catch it when you dropped it into the water.

... and if someone has found a provider for cristal-clear unlubrificated "Billy Boys", please tell me.

Here is a link to a clear non lubed no reservoir tip:

I am sure that these can be found on this side of the pond too.
