    Since the 6+ is a little bigger I was wondering if anyone has seen a case with a handle or a wrist strap for events like concerts? Or perhaps a manufacturer that would make one? Thanks guys.

    I'm a big fan of neck lanyards and wrist straps (attached to existing cases) for keeping devices secure.

    Here's my post with links about neck lanyards/wrist straps:

    And here are adhesive finger straps that are available on Amazon:

    By the way, I ended up using a neck lanyard for my 6+ and it really isn't too big. Seems about the size of a convention/concert laminate. And I never have to worry about dropping it or leaving it somewhere!

    I never really thought much about lanyards, until I saw a guy accidentally drop his very expensive dSLR off a balcony (it wasn't me). This looks like a really good idea, especially for concerts and large crowd situations.

    Thanks OP. I've been thinking about this the last couple of days since I got my 6+. Used to always use a strap holder back in my Nokia N days and using it again only seems natural for the 6+.

    Nice looking case.
    Ordered a black one on Friday and I just got a text saying that it is out for delivery to my business address today. I love Amazon!

    It's hit or miss on Sundays though. Sometimes they attempt delivery after reception closes so most likely I'll have it tomorrow.

    Really interested to see how well this strap mount works/holds up. I usually attach lanyards to the speaker or earphone cutouts at the bottom. (Tech21 cases are ideal because the piece between the charging and earphone jacks is a bit thicker and more durable to support a strap.) I had a couple of bottomless cases that I wanted to try with a lanyard so my husband drilled tiny holes near the bottom corner for me but usually the bottomless cases are ultra slim styles and the lanyard hoop took up some room in the case so the phone didn't fit as well.

    The "strap holder" on the Ringke appears to be raised which would allow for the hoop to fit.

    The Ringke case was delivered successfully today! I love Amazon Prime!

    It's a very slim hard case that resembles the Apple leather case but covers the bottom of the phone. Slight lip for screen protection when laying face down. However, the "lip" is a little sharp and I anchor the back of my pinkies on the front lip of my cases when I type so typing for long periods of time may be an issue. Also, although I knew that the power and volume buttons weren't covered with this case, I really wish they were.

    Most important feature -- the lanyard mount/strap holder. Seems sturdy enough but a bit challenging to "thread" a lanyard hoop in and out the double holes if you don't have the best vision, lol.

    Probably not much drop protection, but since this is meant to be used with a carrying strap or lanyard, this shouldn't be an issue.

    Overall, it's an OK case, especially for $11 shipped. I'll keep it in my growing collection but I think I'll stick with my "customized" Tech21 cases with the lanyards attached to the cutouts as my daily cases.

    Oh, and the "SF BLACK" on Amazon stands for Slim Fusion Black.

    ^So I just spent the last 10 minutes trying to pry my 6+ out of the Ringke Slim Fusion case. 😡 I had to push through the camera hole and then force it out of the case which still took forever. 😳

    Also, the backs of my pinkies have indentations where the lip was digging into them.

    Sadly, this case is going back. I'm probably the only one who holds the phone like that when I type and probably am one of very few people who struggle while removing cases so hopefully everyone else who ordered one likes theirs and has no issues.

    I will go back to adding lanyards to regular cases, lol.

    BEELINE cases are heavy-duty cases with built in retractable locking stinger/carabiner which probably also can be used as a strap/lanyard mount. Haven't seen these in person but plan to visit their booth at CES in January.

    Other colors available.
