What is a Pop Socket?
A Pop Socket is an expandable grip designed to mount on the back of most electronic devices such as mobile phones, tablets and cases. It was originally designed by David Barnett who first launched his product in 2014 and has since become one of the most popular accessories for modern gadgets.
Pop Sockets extend up to two inches off the back of your device, providing a comfortable grip that makes it easier to hold onto. The expandable design also lets you stand your device upright on a table or other flat surface, making it easier to watch videos or take hands-free photos. Another benefit of this design is that it keeps smudges and scratches off the actual device itself. In addition to its practicality, Pop Sockets are great for expressing individual style with their creative collection of artwork and unique designs available on their website or in stores across North America.
So from phone cases with simple swaps to designs unlike any other, a Pop Socket can make carrying or holding everyday items safer, more convenient and much more stylish! With so many options out there, be sure to find a Pop Socket that reflects your own taste and personality!
How Can I Remove a Pop Socket?
Removing a Pop Socket from your device is easier than you think. In a few simple steps, you can have it off and out of the way in no time.
First, start by using either your fingers or a flathead screwdriver to get underneath the edge of the Pop Socket. Using gentle force, pull outward until it pops off of your device. You may want to go slowly and careful not to damage either your device’s surface or the Pop Socket itself.
Once it’s been taken off, use an appropriate cleaning agent such as rubbing alcohol in order to remove any residue that is left over from where the Pop Socket was stuck on with adhesive. This will help ensure that when you put a new one on, there won’t be anything left behind that would create an obstruction for the adhesive to stick properly.
Now that everything is clean and ready for application, it’s time to re-apply the adhesive on the backside of your new Pop Socket that will allow it to stick onto your device without any issue or obstruction when inserted back into place. Depending on what type of adhesives come attached with this particular Pop Socket (which can vary between different models), affix enough so that when you insert it onto your device once again, there won’t be any loose space or empty area left uncovered by covering adhesive.

What Tools are Needed to Remove a Pop Socket?
Removing a Pop Socket requires several tools that depend on the environment in which it’s being removed from. Generally, one will need either a pair of flat head tweezers or thumbtacks. The tweezers should have enough grip to cradle and insert into the Pop Socket’s adhesive layer, allowing for easy removal. If using thumbtacks, make sure the straight pins are pushed all the way through the plastic corners so as not to risk tearing any adhesive left on the back after removal. A plastic putty knife can come in handy for dislodging stubborn Popsockets, along with a heat gun when dealing with more stubborn adhesives. Depending on what type of material your surface is made out of, rubbing alcohol may be required to break down oils released by certain contact-based Popsockets (e.g., sticky backs). Finally, face masks should always be worn while removing any kind of residue to prevent respiration issues related to long exposure times.
What Are the Benefits of Removing a Pop Socket?
Removing a pop socket can have many benefits for your device, phone case and lifestyle. Removing a pop socket provides extra flexibility to maneuver and use your device with ease and comfort. Here are some of the top benefits of removing a pop socket:
1. Enhanced protection: Pop sockets don’t just provide grip, they are also very protective if you drop your phone on the floor or other hard surfaces. By removing them from your device you essentially give yourself an additional layer of protection for the back of your phone which could prevent it from getting scratched or cracked when it’s dropped.
2. No sticky residue: If you’re looking to switch between cases often because you like to keep up with trends, remove any residue that might be caused by leaving the pop socket on by taking it off before changing cases. This ensures it looks nice at all times, while also preventing potential damage to either item.
3. Easier accessorizing: Removing a pop socket offers more options for accessorizing your device without having to worry about a bulky attachment being in the way every time you put something new on there such as stickers or jewelry pieces like charms and pendants.
4. More comfort: If you’re someone who prefers a slimmer profile in terms of their devices then removing the pop socket will make life easier when holding phones in your hands or pocketing it since there won’t be anything protruding outwards which
