Ninja Loop: The best 5 bucks you can spend on your phone?The Ninja Loop comes in a variety of colors, and the company offers custom designs as well as "awareness" loops for fundraising.
[MUSIC]. Hey, I'm Bridget Carey, here with the deal doctor, I like to call, Rick Broida, who. Doctor's in the house. Yeah, what do you got today? Yeah, so today, I want to ask you a question, Bridget. Can your phone do this? Are you David Copperfield? How is that floating in your hands? Yeah, so this is actually a pretty simple item. It's called the Ninja Loop. And, just like it sounds, it's a loop that kind of straps on to the back of your phone case. And it gives you a great way to grip your phone, and also to use it one handed. It serves a couple of different, very useful purposes. For one, it makes it a lot harder for you to drop your phone. Which is something- I do that a lot. [SOUND] Yeah. [LAUGH] I do that a lot. That was not rehearsed. [LAUGH] And so it also- I'm naturally a spaz. [LAUGH] With today's giant screen phones it's kinda hard for your thumb to reach all corners. But when you have the phone loop in place, now. I can get my thumb all over the phone one-handed. I've seen cases that do this. I've actually been tempted by the case that has the built-in slot, but here, I guess you can get whatever case you want. And then, I guess, you would, how do you do? Do you stick it in? Yeah, you literally loop it around through the hole. It's a 3M. So I guess that means it's Won't leave any residue or whatever. And you just kinda loop it in up where the camera is and at the bottom. Mm-hm. And it works with any case. And another thing I love about this is that it still lets your phone sit flat. And it doesn't get in the way if you use wireless charging. That's a big one. There's a lot of phone gripper thingies that kinda stick out from the back like the Pop Shock and whatever. This lets your phone sit flat. It can still charge wirelessly. If you have a magnetic mount in your car, just goes right up on like that and doesn't get in the way. How much would you pay for something like this Bridget? Just take a guess. Well- [LAUGH] when you hold it up like that it probably doesn't seem like much. It's a piece of fabric with tape on it. Okay, I don't know, I don't wanna pay more than 15 bucks. Well, I got good news for you. So, the ninja loop is only Five bucks. Okay, that's actually a normal, good, healthy price. Yeah, actually they are always- I was worried I was gonna go like, too low and like, embarrassed but no, that's good, I don't wanna pay more than that. Yeah, so I think if you buy three you get free shipping on top of it, so Gift, stocking stuffer, just something for yourself. So like five bucks a pop? Five bucks a pop, come in all kinds of colors and patterns. It is a good easy add on gift. Yeah. And then you don't need to know what kind of phone they have. No, no, it works with any phone that's in a case. Love, this is one of my all time favorite products and cheap skate deals. It's a twofer. It's a good parent gift. [LAUGH] Seriously, I like with a kid, I'm always fumbling with one hand. This is good. Thank you. Where can I find more deals? You can find more deals at cnet.com/cheapskate where I share a new deal every day. Alright, thank you Rick! Thank you!
