Welcome to Kindleboards!

Typically a cover or journal ships with a charm as a gift from Oberon.  They also have a selection of charms available on their website, mostly because we kept pestering them to start selling them! ;D

The charm can make it easier to remove the bungee from the front button.  You do need to be careful though; the bungee is like any other elastic and can snap back.  At least one person had a permanent nick on their screen & a dark spot beneath it when a 4 year old decided to play with the charm.

(ninja-ed twice while typing!) :D

Dumb question. But how do you attach the charm to the Kindle 2 Oberon cover? Do you have to reach down under the flap and push the bungee cord thru the hold, put the charm thru and then back into the hole?
It seems hard to do. No?
You nailed it first try! No, it's actually pretty easy to do, though of course you don't want to try it with a Kindle actually in the cover. :D

Each end of the bungee has a small metal "barb" that keeps it from going through the hole on it's own. Once you get a hold of that, it acts a lot like a needle, so when you push it through the hole, the bungee elastic will follow. This makes it very easy to remove, thread the charm on, and then push the bungee back through into the hole.
