      3/5 on this product not including a more universal mount: the vent mount may not fit your car's vents. As I discovered recently with a rental Fiat car, some cars' vent panels are too thick for this mount to grab on to. The windshield mount isn't included in this package, so if you find that the car vent mount doesn't happen to fit your vents, you would need to buy a windshield mount separately. (The car vent mount fits my Toyota Camry fine.) 5/5 for the bracket holder: My previous phone/GPS bracket holder held my phone securely enough when the mount was attached to the vents (where it was less bumpy), though the phone fit loosely since I have my iPhone 5 in its case, making it a "thicker" phone to hold. My old holder was abysmal with a windshield mount, and the reason I came to get this one was that my phone/GPS was flying off that holder on a windshield mount every other minute! This bracket holder's tapered design (narrower in front so it traps your phone better) is great with holding different sizes and thicknesses of phone/GPS, which is important when the road is bumpy or when you're using a windshield mount that makes your phone/GPS shakier on the road. I had a windshield mount with my former holder which also snaps onto this bracket holder, fortunately, but this package alone (bracket holder + car vent mount) would not have been enough for the type of car I was driving.

      Not bad for traveling by air

      I bought this for a trip I was taking that involved flying to a destination and then doing a significant amount of driving. I usually use a weighted dashboard friction thing to hold my GPS, but I didn't want to carry a heavy thing. I am not a big fan of the suction cup to the windshield mounts, so I went for a vent mount. Doesn't fold into a compact form as small as I would have liked, but it was pretty good. Mounting it to the vent itself as good, although it can lead to some minor struggling if you don't grab the spring clips firmly and have a good orientation to the device. I did find that the vent mount positions the GPS a little lower than usual, but it was OK after some getting used to the position. The part that clamped onto the GPS was a tiny bit small for my 5" GPS, but it was able to hold it OK. Had to tighten the swivel mount well to hold the weight of the GPS up. The back arm that you use to brace the mount against the visor was essential and a bit confusing since it could be positioned in a number of ways. Overall, I found the mount useful for traveling.

      Much better than the cheaper Braketron model

      I use this EVERY DAY to hold my phone. I drive a VW Jetta and a Honda CRV. it's mostly in the Jetta, but I switch it out to the CRV when I need to. I put my phone in and out of it multiple times a day. I've used it on 400 mile trips. I previously had the slightly less expensive version of the Braketron vent mount. They use exactly the same hardware to mount to the car vent. It's the part that holds the phone that is better. This one has a much more positive grip on the phone. I have an iPhone 6S (not plus) in a Mophie waterproof case with extra battery. My phone is HEAVY! This holds it fine. No flopping around. I'd give it 5 stars except the construction still feels a little "plastic-ee" to me. But better than the previous one. I expect this will last about a year and a half. Maybe a little more. So far this is the best solution I've found for mounting my phone to my cars vent.

      Good but difficult to attach and adjust

      We purchased this because going to our ranch we go over a rough road and other methods of holding the GPS in place were unsatisfactory. Finding the best place to attach it for good viewing but where it doesn't interfere with working knobs and levers while driving was the biggest challenge. I may have solved that with using the vent by the door on the drivers side. It isn't ideal because the passenger can't see it but places in the center interfered with levers, knobs, radio, etc. Also getting it attached is not that simple. That said, the really good thing is that it holds the GPS very securely. I found that to keep the tilt constant I need to tighten it with pliers. The best solution we have found and worth all the effort for our situation.

      Good product for holding iPhone 7+ in a case

      I have been looking around for a mount for my iPhone 7+ with a pelican case for a little while. Bought this one on a whim because I thought it opened up enough to hold the large phone. It supports the phone well and I haven’t had any issues. The one big thing I do not like is that the spring loaded clips on the top are adjustable (which is nice for fitting different size vents) easily pop out when not attached to a vent. I have had to dig through my console for one or both multiple times. Other than that, money decently spent.

      Great car clip for phone

      I went to the local Best Buy store to check out an entirely different magnetic car clip that cost about three times as much, bought it, went out to the parking lot to install it, and realized it wouldn't install because the car vent configuration was completely different. I went back in the store, which took the opened package back without any problems, and decided to ask for help. An associate pointed out this simply, cheap vent clip which he used, so I bought it, went out again to the parking lot, and it clipped in even easier and sleaker than the other one. I really appreciate this, to keep the phone out of the way, but within eyesight for Waze use. The vent also keeps the phone cooler when running Waze, which uses a lot of energy, which is great, too.

      Bought for my daughter to use in her 2008 Explorer so she could use hands free. She say's she likes it a lot and uses it daily. Just slips in her phone when she gets in. It holds her phone (Samsung) really well while being attached to the A/C vent near the right side of the steering wheel. One thing I can note here though, it is currently summer and she is using the air conditioning on Hi and the airflow interrupts the conversation on the callers side. If she remembers to turn down the A/C a little the conversation is fine, but that would be expected with the phone being mounted there. All-in-all a very nice product for this purpose. I would recommend this for phones or GPS units.

      Best Vent Mount on the Market!

      After a ton of online research and reading reviews, I decided to check this one out at Best Buy. As I entered the store a sales person asked if he could help me, and when i told him I was looking for a good vent mount for my phone, he said "I'll show you the one I bought". Turns out to be the Bracketron Tek Grip Mount. Now, after several weeks of use I'm convinced it's the best one on the market. I've used it for several road trips and around town and it is perfect. It adjusts for almost any phone, and when it is attached to my car vent, it is solid and doesn't move around over bumpy roads. It can be adjusted so you have the right angle to view it from the driver's seat. If you're looking for a vent mounted holder for your phone, this is the one!
