Many hand held electronic users enjoy the option and added security that a lanyard and chain apparatus supplies them with. The dilemma occurs when the lanyard is not desired for various reasons. If removed totally, the small device can easily be lost or misplaced. Ideally the device can be stored on board the electrical device itself. The most simple concept of accomplishing this request, without adding any additional components or cost, is to supply the user with a groove in which the chain can be stored, and a properly dimensioned recess into which the clip can be securely snapped. This storage method preserves the lanyard, on location, for immediate use.
