Articulating Wall-Mounted Magnetic Phone Mount
I’ve been debating mounting a TV on the ceiling above my bed. The only reason I haven’t done it is because of a fear of being crushed by a falling TV while I’m sleeping.
This design allows me to watch Youtube, Netflix, or other streaming video while I’m falling asleep.
Adhesive Metal Plate for Magnetic Phone Mounts
Pot Magnets from MPCO MAGNETICS
4x Screws that fit in a 5 mm hole with a head diameter no larger than 7.9 mm
4x Wall Anchors for those screws
If I had to guess on the screw size based on the charts I found online, I would say it’s a #10 screw, but I designed the wall mount around some unlabeled screws and anchors I had lying around.
The bottom layers on both of my printers tend to screw with the tolerances. I had to scrape the rims of the holes for the magnets before they would pop in, essentially widening the diameters for the first couple of layers.
Magnetic Mount Cap
The electrical tape provides a higher-friction surface than the plastic provides. Place a few strips across the surface of the cap that the phone will sit on, and this helps to prevent the phone from sliding.
Make sure the cap is screwed down firmly to minimize the distance from the on the back of your phone and the magnets.
