Smartphone lanyard

8/21/2018 by Betty

The ends of the cover do not stay on very well. I do enjoy it when shopping. It is very lightweight and good for someone like myself who has balance problems.

I thought this would be perfect for me. I am currently wearing a "boot" because of a broken ankle and need to always have my phone with me. Unfortunately, the back of the holder covers up half of the camera lens as well as the charging area of the phone so I can't lay t on the charging disc..


handy but i wish it was longer

8/17/2020 by katherine

i thought this would be a great idea as i am always misplacing my phone or my kid takes it for selfies. my intent was to always wear this. i like the concept of this however i am cautious about having the phone radiation emanating so close to vital organs on an ongoing basis. i thought i could purchase a protective phone case but after some research i found that the cases cause radiation to build up. so i bought this thing and haven't used it. at all. if i could get a longer cord that i could sling over a shoulder so it would hit at the hip or thigh i would use it that way.


Security Not Good

Product upon use did not hold phone on cord securely and when trying to access phone usage while straps were on phone was unsuccessful for me. Will not be purchasing this item again.


Wanted to love it

Wanted to love it and i do still use it, but if you have iphone 11, if you put all 4 corners on, you cant use upper right or left corner commands because the strap gets in the way. Also, beware, the strap goes over the the right side power switch and it keeps dialing EMERGENCY because the strap causes the button to be pressed when you are wearing it and walking and its swinging around on you. Very sad. Wanted it to be a winner.

I actually bought two of this item, several months apart. I bought one for myself, intending to wear it around my neck while walking for exercise in three mile segments. I found it too uncomfortable around my neck and used it only a few times.

Several months later my husband transitioned from using a belt bag to carry his cell phone to wearing the phone in his rear pants pocket. He found the phone uncomfortable to sit on and he left the phone behind accidentally on several occasions. I could not find my lanyard so bought a second one for him to try. Unfortunately, he experienced the same discomfort around the neck that I did. He stopped using it.


Cracked screen

I love this idea and I thought it was the perfect answer for carrying my phone at work. Unfortunately, after replacing my screen guard and installing my phone into this holder, It fell twice and busted the screen guard once again. As I walk a lot at work, I could not trust this any more. Please let me know if you invent one that’s a little tighter.


Not suited for plus size cellphone w/ cases

5/20/2020 by JANETTE

Bought this item as a Birthday present for my husband, who has an iPhone 8 Plus w/ a case , within two/ three weeks the portion that goes around the corners of the phone started to fall apart The description indicates that this item works well with phone cases. In order to insert the phone into the Lanyard you must stretch the sides over the corners of the phone case, which is quite a stretch and places stress on the the sides causing it to break. In order for this Item to work it should be made larger to accommodate cellphones with cases. Otherwise it works great without it. Unfortunately, for me it was a bust..


out of love

1/6/2020 by Ane

I'm falling out of love since, while wearing the lanyard, the bus pass carried in the pouch fell out and I'm now tasked with heading downtown to replace the pass. The original lanyard had one of the straps break after minimal wear and handling and was quickly replaced. Like other readers, it took a while to reduce the swinging when I wore it. The concept is outstanding, the current version not so much.


practical if stronger

Did not hold up very long while wering around the neck

The Gear Beast Story

Gear Beast | Smartphone Lanyard

Hands-Free Hold

Makers Jonathan Magasanik, Joon Park, and RJ Theodore originally made this smartphone lanyard to keep phones safe, secure, and out of a snowbank for skiers riding the chairlift. The trio quickly realized the uses for Gear Beast went far beyond the slopes.

The lightweight and flexible silicone lanyard holds a phone anytime you want your hands free but your phone handy, like at festivals, concerts, sporting events, or when you’re spending time outdoors. It’s also a great way for seniors to keep their phone accessible in case of emergencies.

The silicone holder stretches to fit most phones—even
ones with a case—and has space to hold credit cards or cash. Wear it lanyard-style around your neck, on your wrist, or clipped to a bag or belt loop. Now your phone is safe and right there when you need it. Read More Read Less
