    Here is a dummy plug i found for the headphone jack. They are Super Hard to find!! I am looking to hook up with someone and get them produced in bulk. I am up for any suggestions on how to improve it. This was taken out of a Dare. It is the same texture and color as the Seidio case. If anyone know anyone who has the capibility to produce something like this or know a place to get it done, please let me know. They are made for the iPhone by a bunch of companies and i wanta get it started for these. I was thinking of making the top flat part thicker. let me know what u guys think about this.

    Here are some pics...

    The red lines below are to show that the plug is ribbed. the lines represent thicker lines of the rubber.

    Why won't the iPhone ones work? The hole is the same size, correct?

    What is so different? I see the plugs that double as a SIM card remover, but you can break off that stem. The opening is the same size. What am I missing here?

    OK, gotcha. I'll go do some looking around tomorrow and see what I can find out.

    So the one you have now came out of an LG Dare?

    Why do we want these? Just to protect the jack from dust, dirt and water?

    might i ask what case it is that youre using? does it have a snug fit on the phone? i have a problem with loosing the one that rims the screen, as all the ones i have tried have been very loose fitting

    I sure hope nobody is getting their Droid anywhere *water* could get in there, but aside from that, absolutely, the pockets and purses these phones live in can literally DUMP stuff in there. This is a wonderful idea. - one less thing to worry about.

    How hard is that plug to get out? It looks like it fits pretty flush with the hole. Does it come out easily?
