iPhone5 ストラップ
iPhone5ストラップ|iPhone5 NETSUKE
Ever since ancient times in Japan there has been a history of attaching a small lanyard to precious items. This lanyard is referred to as a NETSUKE. For centuries it has kept samurais and laymen alike from dropping their swords and pocketbooks into the mud or a castle moat. It's just part of Japanese culture, which is why all phones in Japan have holes for attaching a lanyard from the beginning. Unfortunately the iPhone didn't have this feature, but fortunately we were able to create a viable solution with our NETSUKE product.

We use only the finest Stainless 304 material in our product, the same material used to create iPod and iPhone housings. Polished to perfection, these parts are extremely robust and will never tarnish, rust, or flake.

Evolution of our design Thinner. Lighter. Stronger. More flexible.

The iPhone got a lot thinner with the release of the 5, so we had to evolve with it. We achieved this by adding a rotating eyelet that allows the attachment plate to fit within the thickness of the product, and makes the overall design more robust at the same time.

We also had to improve the design drastically to keep up with the tiny new lightning connector. Carefully avoiding the speaker and microphone holes, and keeping the mechanism extremely (0.25mm!) thin at the insertion point the connector can still 'click' into place just as it was meant to do.
(*this only works with the standard in-box lightning cable. Other 3rd party 'fat' cables may interfere)

We have made each design thinner, lighter, stronger, and better than previous generations. We thoroughly check each product before shipping to guarantee its quality.
We have design patents issued or in-process on all of our designs.

In the Package

NETSUKE Plate Custom pentalobe screwdriver Custom Screws *the red or blue material on the tips of the screws is a special polymer meant to prevent loosening over time. this is not rust.

We sell all Poddities products as kits with each of the above items included. You do not have to purchase anything separately.


Lanyard can rotate freely out of the way so the lightning cable can still insert.

For those worried about the strength of the attachment

This is just to show how strong the attachment is. We do not recommend that you abuse your phone like this.

Staff Voice

アイフォン5ストラップ NETSUKE for the iPhone 5. Lighter and thiner, and we made 2 colors to match those of the iPhone.

As for the strength, we think you will be surprised at the toughness of this mechanism. In product testing we beat and abused these and were unable to seriously damage the parts. Not to say that's how you should use your products -- leave that up to those of us developing. One thing to note is that you should always make sure that your screws are fastened securely, since if they loosen up then all the strength and security of the mechanism is lost. We use an anti-loosening polymer on the screw tips specifically to prevent this.

We love when we see people on the streets using our products. We frequently receive emails and letters from our customers telling us how much they have enjoyed the products ever since the first generations. We promise to keep making better and better products as long as we are around. Thank you.

How to attach

  • 1.
    Remove the original iPhone screws by turning them counterclockwise with the Poddities screwdriver.

  • 2.
    Align the plate as shown and fasten with the 2 Poddities screws. Be sure that they are secure, but do not overtighten as you may strip the threads. Pushing into the screw while turning helps prevent this.

  • 3.
    Final adjustment works best by gradually tightening both screws little by little. Again, be careful not to overtighten or strip the screws. You may need to re-tighten if they loosen over time.
