BugTwine: A (super) simple Twine hanger.
  • Hello,

    If this is in the wrong section, please let me know and I'll move it.
    This is a thread based on the discussion here: http://community.supermechanical.com/index.php?p=/discussion/45/mounting-options-or-insulation.

    Using a twist tie I found, I threaded it through the center two holes towards the top of the Twine. This gives me a new mounting point that I can use to hang it with. Thinking about it a bit more, I decided on a twist tie over a paper clip because the tie is a bit more insulated, possibly helping to avoid interactions with the internals. This hanger could be molded into/glued to a magnetic plate, giving more options than the single hole. You could also hang this on a curtain rod, etc.

    This "mod" required no modification of the Twine itself. There was enough space inside to thread the tie without issue.

    To remove the white case: remove the batteries, and spread the two white clips with your pointer fingers while pushing with your thumbs on the floor plate of the battery compartment. It's pretty easy, but I'm happy to post photos if requested. You might be able to thread the twist tie through without separating the board and white case, but it's easy enough to remove that you'd probably save time by removing it.

    I can't figure out how to post photos directly into this post, so for now I'll link to the Google+ album I made: https://plus.google.com/photos/111943890093334087737/albums/5821836919943336097.

    Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks!

    Andreas
