How to attach a phone charm to your case in 4 easy steps

Our phone charms have been extremely popular and we have had a lot of questions about how to attach them to your phone case or where to attach charms on particular phone types. Read on for step-by-step instructions and an instructional video!

Where to attach a phone charm

Some cases have dedicated holes to attach charms, but most do not. Don’t worry, though! You can still use a phone charm either way!

The most common placement, no matter the phone type, is to loop the charm through the mute button opening on the side of the case as shown in the picture below. The string on the charm is thin enough that it does not interfere with the case positioning on your phone.

You can also use the charger opening at the bottom of the case or even the camera opening to attach a charm. The pictures below show an Android phone case with the charm attached on an opening at the top of the case.

  1. Loosen the knot around the phone case opening

    1. Hi Ashley! You should be able to reverse the process shown in the video – loosen the loop around the phone case opening and then feed it back through to remove the charm!

    1. Great question, Ella! It is mostly for decoration, but it also helps to secure your phone. It’s not meant to always carry your phone by, but if you slip your wrist through the charm when you’re holding your phone, it provides backup in case you drop the phone!

  1. Hii!! So I have a Green iPhone 11 and I am thinking about getting a phone charm! I really love all the phone charms but, I don’t know which one to pick! And I want a phone charm that would match my phone! <3

    Thank you!

    1. Awesome! The Pearly Whites charm is super popular and would look great with Sage Waves! You also might try the green DIY kit!

  2. Hello I was thinking of getting a phone charm because it’s so popular i want suggestions because my phone is the iPhone 13 the pink one so which one should I get

    1. Hi Laura! It probably depends more on your phone case design than on the phone color, but for pink the Pink Stars charm is very popular and I really like the Neutral Smile Pop, too!

    1. Hi Reagan!

      It’s the same process just choose whichever opening on the case is convenient! A lot of Android users will put the charm on the bottom opening for the charger.
