Rivet Attachment System for portable gadgets


My inner fashion tyrant won't allow me to attach my cell phone to my belt loop, but my inner geek kind of likes the idea of having everything I need right on my body. This explains why, even though I have an unrelenting fondness for fanny packs, I'd never dare to actually wear one in public (anymore, that is -- there was that fanny pack epidemic of the 1980s which are a blur to me now).

The people responsible for coming up with the Rivet Attachment System understand my dilemma. Rivet has taken the traditional geek concept of wearing your devices and added something brand new to it -- styling. The Rivet system allows you to attach your mobile phone, your mp3 player, or your digital camera to yourself or your bag or your car in a number of different ways. How it works is: you select a clip, attach a plate to your device, then connect the clip to a pin. (I find the purchasing process on the site a tad confusing -- when you select a clip, you're not prompted to choose other components to go with it.)


Rivet carries several lanyard options, including these great lanyard earphones (in pink, black or graphite) for lightweight mp3 players.


The new Rivet Wrap is an alternative to ordinary mobile phone cases.

Now if only they could do something with those fanny packs.

We've been using Rivet around here for a while for flashlights and cellphones. Great stuff!

This is great timing. I've got one for my cell phone and I wanted to get some extra parts for it, but in the year and a half since I got it, their website changed and I couldn't find it anywhere! Yay! Seriously, I can't even say just how much I adore mine. It gets compliments, too.
