    I had seen a thread that a bicycle water bottle holder is the right dimension for a UMC, but you have to thread the entire cord through it every time you need to take the UMC with you.

    I found a Tornado U-Hook for $6 at Home Depot today and it works great! I just wanted to take the slack out of the cord hanging since I won't be traveling with my UMC often. And yes, I sprung for the $25 piece of plastic to wrap the cord because it has the hook for the charging end.

    Tip: if you do use a water bottle holder as a UMC bracket, simply make a cut in the horizontal bar and then it's easy to take the UMC with you anytime without threading the entire cable through it.

    But nice find, re: the Home Depot bracket
