Has anyone successfully threaded a lanyard loop through the strap hole on the Xperia Z3 - if so could you tell me how to do it please?

Hi, quite difficult to explain, its just a matter of feeding thru then feeding the other end thru the part you've just fed thru......have a look on You Tube as there may be a video :smileysmileywink:

If you are unable to perform the task, try a local Sony Store or maybe a network carrier store, they would have some experience performing the task and should be able to help.
I hope this helps.

Just seen your query and perhaps you've solved the problem now. Anyway you need to press the end of the lanyard tightly to make it as small as possible and then push it into the strap hole at a slight angle as far as it will go. Holding it in place push a sewing needle or similar into the opposite end of the hole and "fish" for the loop. It worked first time for me.

To attach a lanyard to the Xperia Z3 is actually quite easy once you know how. The first thing your going to need is get hold of some fishing line about 200mm (8 inches) long. Close to one end of the line try to bend it back on itself as to make a small bend in the line. Use this end to push it into the lanyard hole on the mobile so that it comes out the other side of the hole, make sure you've got at least half the line poking out of either side. Now get your lanyard and place one side of the line through the loop that will secure the lanyard, make a granny knot with the fishing line around the lanyard loop as to secure it. Next pull the fishing line back through pulling the lanyard loop back through the hole. Then undo the granny knot, open the lanyard secure rope (string) and pass the strap through, pull tight and the job is done. The job should take no more than a couple of minutes.

I think it's terrible that no one-including Sony-have ever marketing a truly secure lanyard solution that utilizes the built in loop that Sony built into the Xperia Z3 phone! Your "fishing line" lanyard idea probably offers the most security of any I've found so far. But please create a video showing complete construction of your lanyard. Thank you.
