      Convenient hands free mount

      After my last hands free mount refused to mount due to adhesion issues, I decided to look at a vent mount. This clips onto the horizontal part of the vent. It blocks the vent, but not completely so A/C still functions. Haven't tried it with the heater but I imagine that would work too. Wouldn't want to run the heat too long with the phone right there, but I'm sure it would still function. It uses an adjustable foam grip on the sides and fold down legs to support the phone. It can be adjusted to hold phones bigger than mine and mine is 5.2". My phone hasn't fallen free of the mount without me loosening it. It has a rest so it's lifted off the dashboard. If you have a touchscreen just under your vent, it may be problematic as it may make contact with your screen. It slightly obscures my radio screen, but I hardly use it anyway. It does block my CD slot, but it can be lifted out of the way easily. It has a ball joint to swivel to achieve the best viewing angle. It isn't unlimited but does provide a wide number of positions to view. I have on a couple occasions moved it too far to one side and pulled it off the vent. It doesn't block the top or the bottom of my phone, so all my ports are still available. It does block the power button of my phone on the side, but a quick double tap on the screen wakes my phone up so it isn't a problem for me. I rather like this car mount. It seems secure and lets me charge and plug in my auxiliary cable. Works great for me and my car and my phone.

      This one wasn't. I actually only bought it expecting it to be no more than a temporary solution to my sudder need of a new dash mount. I genuinely expected it to be a junk item that refused to hold firmly to the dash, would be near impossible to get on/off, and would deteriorate just looking at it. With all that said, what I got was a complate 180° surprise. Let me give it to you in a brisk list. 1. Utilitarian construction - no gimmicks or unnecessary bits 2. Well made from a durable plastic blend 3. Easily applied to the vents of most vehicles thanks to thick, firm foam/neoprene pads on the claws 4. Easily removed because of those same pads being forgiving when carefully pulled directly away from the vents 5. Curved in arms allow you to cradle your phone loosely in the holder - if you get in and out a lot, this canew be worth the price of admission Overall, just a well built holder that doesn't get in the way and keeps your phone cool (when the A/C is on). Oh, one thing. It will NOT handle anything much larger than you typical phones with a mildly bulky case. For example, I recently upgraded to one of the newer Galaxy models and put a Love MEI Aluminum case on it. If you have one of those silly bulky animal cases or a damage-proof one like mine, you will have to either lose the case or refrain from this holder.

      Working Well So Far

      Posted

      Started ride share driving so a car mount became a must. This Bracketron TripGrip was a great purchase for use with my Samsung Galaxy S4 with Otterbox case. Operationally sound at a reasonable price. I was skeptical about using a vent mount due to the recessed, curved nature of the center vent in my Camry. It did take a little maneuvering to get it the way I needed it. I mounted mine low on the vent as far left as possible. The clips worked great, no jostling once I screwed down the position with the knob. The support wasn't needed, and it really just got in the way so I tucked it all the way in, up and under the bracket. There are two feet that can be opened which the phone rests on, which worked well, no issues. The release button worked great to open the arms, and once you remember where the button is it's not a problem. Easy to lock the phone in, and then release and remove it when leaving the vehicle. My only issue is that I had to trade off the line of sight to my car clock in order to have the phone as near to me where I wanted it. Unfortunately as you get older your vision isn't what it used to be, and I needed the phone where I could easily see it and touch the screen without much maneuvering.

      A vent-mount Cell Phone Holder that holds

      The Bracketron - TripGrip Mobile Phone Holder mounts to your dashboard air vents. The unit actually comes in two pieces that snap together - the vent mount piece and the cell phone cradle piece. What I particularly like about this design is the drop-down leg on the vent-mount part - it provides an angle-brace that supports the weight of the whole unit, including the cell phone. This makes it much more secure than my previous vent-grip-only mounts, and less likely to detach on a bumpy road. I also like the bottom support for the cell phone itself - this is not the same as the angle brace I just mentioned, rather, the bottom of the phone sits on two flat prongs that fold out at the bottom of the cradle, so the phone is not just held by friction from the side grips. The prongs are about an inch apart, so there is plenty of room for a bottom-mounted power cable (absolute necessity when using map/GPS programs like Waze). I've used this holder on several long trips and it has been rock solid.

      Bracketron - TripGrip Car Holder for Mobile Phones

      I had bought these vent clip types of Cell Phone holders in the past, and they all failed after getting hot in my car. They'd loosen up and fall off, very annoying. I bought a Bracketron suction type holder that attached to the windshield, and my phone got so hot, it wasn't good, but it stuck and stayed in place fine. I tried moving it from the side window my car has and the suction finally failed, (I've had that one for about 3 yrs!) I had to replace it, but didn't want another windshield mount. My car doesn't have a smooth enough surface besides, the windshield, to attach another suction type holder, so I decided to try another vent mount one. This holder is great, due to the brace at the bottom, it doesn't bounce up and down, and the clips are very sturdy! It's very secure while I'm driving, keeps the phone cool, and the clamps holding the phone work better, glides open and close much better than the older Bracketron TripGrip! I really like this one!!!

      The item works well, although if it is attached and empty, it will sometimes rattle. I'm not sure if that's the item though, or simply the way it interacts with my car. I chose this particular type of holder because I wanted the phone close to eye level, but not on my dash, where it might obstruct my view and create a blind spot. I compared it to a few others I found online, and appreciated that this version has a brace at the bottom. Phones can be surprisingly heavy, so that additional support is nice. I have tested it several times on trips which last over half an hour, and it works well when I pull up my map app. I have not yet tried to swivel it sideways, so I can't comment on the way it works on a horizontal. I recommended it to my mother, who also purchased one. Overall, we are happy with the purchase, especially in regards to the price for the quality.

      Works Great! Check phone button locations though.

      I have been looking for one of these for a while, and on a trip with a rental, looking down to see the phone in the cigarette lighter phone holder wasn't working. I was a little worried about the friction fit on the vent vanes not being secure enough or too tight and breaking the plastic, but worked well on a rental and is working so far on my wife's truck.There is only one thing that you need to think about - the location of the buttons on your phone. My wife's Moto Z Play Droid works beautifully drop and squeeze - which is great because that is primarily why I bought it --- but I had to place my Moto G4 Play carefully to not push the volume buttons on the side - minor issue - you get used to how to do it and I didn't stop using it (until time to put it in her truck).

      Simple Yet Effective, With Quality

      I've used a holder that mounts on your windshield through a suction cup. It worked fine...when the suction cup held. After a while, the dirt on the windshield or the cup weakened the suction, especially when the weather turned cold. This design has a small clip that goes over a vane in your AC duct in the dash panel. The holder mounts on that (and does't have to be taken off). I was leery about what this might do to the vane, but see no effect. The two padded sides of the holder are squeezed together by hand to lock your phone in place. These sides release quickly when you press a button. The only concern you should have is whether the positioning on a vent, within reach of your touch while driving, will give you a good view of the screen without interfering with your access to car controls.
