Everyone loves popping things. There’s something almost meditative about that soft and satisfying pop. Popsicles, stress balls, and now phone accessories are all better with a pop. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of taking off your phone case to reveal a pop socket underneath it. It’s an exciting moment for anyone who loves fun and unique things as much as you do. The only problem? You have no idea how to take it off your phone again. That’s right, we all know that feeling of elation followed by panic as you try to figure out how to remove a popsocket from your phone again so you can use it like a normal person again. This article is here to help you in this trying time of despair and confusion. Read on to learn how to take off a popsocket from your phone – hopefully once and for all!
How To Take Off A Popsocket From Your Phone
1. Make sure the popsocket is the kind you want to remove
You may have noticed that some pop sockets are made to be removable and others are not. If yours is the kind that’s only meant to be put on your phone, then you won’t be able to remove it. You’ll have to purchase an all-in-one case. There are a few different types of pop sockets, but all of them can be removed with a bit of effort. The most common type is one that has a thin cord wrapped around it and a small rubber stopper at the end. This type can easily be popped off with a simple twist or pull, but you will need something soft to help pry at the end of the cord if it’s difficult for you to remove by hand. You might also want to try using something thin and flat like your fingernail or even your thumbnail if necessary. If you can feel how tight it is, then you know how much force is needed for removal as well. If the cord does not hold any tension whatsoever, then there will be no way for you to take it off without destroying your phone case in the process!
2. Get ready! It will get messy
This step should go without saying, but we’re going to spell it out anyway: make sure there isn’t anything on your phone case before removing it so that when you do remove it, it will be the cleanest possible. You can use a soft cloth or a tissue if you want to get everything off of your phone, but make sure it’s completely clean first before taking off the popsocket.
3. Use a popsocket removal tool
If you can’t get the popsocket off by hand, then you’ll have to use something else. Many people have found success with a popsocket removal tool, which is simply a small plastic tool that looks like an ice cream scoop. It has small holes in the handle and at the end so that when you insert it into your case and twist it downwards, it will loosen up any tight spots inside your phone case that are preventing you from removing the popsocket. This is because pop sockets are made with tiny rubber stoppers on them that prevent them from being removed without additional help. They also prevent even more damage if they come in contact with other parts of your phone case while removing the pop socket. You may need to do some gentle tapping with this tool as well – try not to pry too hard or scratch your phone’s surface while trying to remove it!
4. Prying & tapping! Prying & tapping! Prying & tapping!
Once you have used a tool to get all of the tight spots loosened up inside your case so you can remove the cord, then all that’s left is prying at each end of the cord and using your tool to help you loosen them up. You’ll have to do this for all four corners of the popsocket, as well as at any other spots that may be causing trouble. A popsocket removal tool is definitely a great help here, but if you don’t have one you can also use a small flathead screwdriver or even a pair of tweezers to carefully pry at each end of the cord with some gentle tapping along the way. Once all of the cords are loose, then you should be able to pull on them until they pop off!
5. Clean up! Clean up! Clean up!
After removing your popsocket, you will want to make sure that everything is clean and free from debris before reattaching it back onto your phone case. Try wiping off any excess dirt or fingerprints with a soft cloth or tissue and make sure there aren’t any scratches or dents left on your phone case from where it was stuck in place by the popsocket in the first place. If there are any scratches on your phone case where it touches other parts of it, then that could cause damage to those parts when the next set of keys jams into those areas and causes abrasions to form over time. You can use a damp cloth for this step as well – try not to get too much water on your phone case itself so that it doesn’t get damaged as well.
What Is A Popsocket?
A popsocket is a small phone accessory that attaches to the back of your phone. They come in many different colors, shapes, and designs and are held in place by powerful suction. You can put your phone in a popsocket horizontally or vertically, and it’ll stay there without falling out. In fact, the suction holds your phone so well that you can even turn your phone upside down without it falling out. Popsockets are very useful in everyday life, whether you’re using your phone as a GPS, talking hands-free on the phone, or using your phone as a rear-facing camera. They’re also great if you have kids. Popsockets are a fun and innovative way for people to express themselves, show off their personality, or just make their phones a little bit more fun to use. You can customize your popsocket with the designs and colors of your choice, making each popsocket unique and personalized!
How To Install A Popsocket
1. Clean your case
Before installing a popsocket, you need to make sure that the case itself is clean and free of any dirt or debris. Use a soft cloth or tissue and gently wipe off any dirt or fingerprints, and make sure there aren’t any scratches or dents in the case where the popsocket will touch it. If there are any scratches on your phone case where it touches other parts of it, then that could cause damage to those parts when the next set of keys jams into those areas and causes abrasions to form over time.
2. Find a good spot on your phone case
If you’re using a hard plastic case, then you’ll want to find a good spot on your phone where there’s little material between the popsocket and the back of your phone. For example, if you’re using an Otterbox case, then try sticking it directly onto the edge of your phone rather than cutting out a piece for it. For example:
3. Attach your pop sockets
You can attach them in many different ways – some people choose not to use suction at all but instead glue them down with double-sided tape or tape them down with tiny pieces of electrical tape, while others choose to use suction. Feel free to experiment! If you do decide not to use suction at all, then be sure that they are firmly held in place by double-sided tape before moving on with step 4. For those who wish to use suction, simply attach your popsocket to the back of your phone case with a suction cup. It should have a little hole in it that allows it to fit tightly around the case.
4. Put them away
When you’re finished using your pop sockets, simply remove them from the back of your phone and store them in a safe place until you need them again. They will stay firmly attached to the back of your phone when they are placed back on.
5. Clean your phone
If you’re using a hard plastic case, then you should clean it with a soft, dry cloth. If you’re using a silicone case, then use the soft cloth that came with your case to wipe it down.
If you love pop sockets, then you know the struggle of taking them off your phone. Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about that ever again thanks to this article!
