About Smart Catch


SMART CATCH was conceived thanks to a ringing phone in a ski jacket pocket while riding a chairlift.  Overly nervous that the phone would wind up in the snowy glade forty feet below, an important call went unanswered.  Finding no suitable phone "safety strap" on the market (others used vital ports, were flimsy or only fit one particular phone model), the quest to develop a new kind of tether began.  The result is SMART CATCH.

Now, whether you prefer the convenience of a neck lanyard for every day, or a leash for peace of mind in exceptional conditions, SMART CATCH is the smart way to catch your smart phone.


SMART CATCH is made of elastic silicone and is designed to hold your smartphone snugly by the loops on the "web". SMART CATCH comes with two 16" matching silicone straps and one nickel plated hinged clip which can easily convert to a variety of configurations including a 32" lanyard, a 16" leash, a 16" loop to hang around your wrist or on your gear, or a multitude of other possibilities.

SMART CATCH is manufactured using a custom-designed silicone formulation developed specifically for this application. The design was computer modeled and fits many of the most common devices on the market including: iPhone 6, 6+, 5 and 4, iPod Touch 4 and 5, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Note 2, Motorola Droid Razr, HTC Droid DNA, Google Nexus 4, Sony Xperia Z, LG Optimus G, and Nokia Lumia 920 (NOTE: some ports and cameras may be occluded on certain devices.)
