    Does anyone know if there is a way to shrink the silicone case from the otterbox defender.

    I wouldn't think so! Is your silicone stretched out like mine? Lol.

    Why are you trying to do this? Is it stretched out and to big now?

    Sort of. I want to fit snug. It's loose a bit

    OK, did you think about putting it in the oven for a few just to get it warm and then in some cold water for it to shrink. Just a thought, not sure if it will work.

    Call otterbox and ask for a new silicone piece. You should still be under warranty. Jbs idea might work as well. Might! Lol.

    Make sure you have oven cleaner near by. It will help clean up the glob of melted rubber you will soon have

    It takes a good bit of heat to melt silicone, but I agree and still wouldn't try shrinking it in the oven. Lmao! :D

    Calling otterbox would be your best bet. Their customer service rocks! I've had to use them twice and they sent me a replacement for my commuter and defender. No questions asked. :D!
