    Returned twice because of damaged packaging

    Never used the product because I twice received product with opened / damaged packaging. One of the items was obviously used. Not acceptable as a gift for someone. That said the quality looked "so so" at best and was not as good as the model sold in store. Ordered on line as a Christmas gift for my daughter. The first item shipped had obviously been opened and wasn't repacked properly. The top of the package was open. The replacement item was even in worse condition. Top of the package was open. Front of the box was torn. Returned second one as well and requested a refund which took several weeks to be processed. Took multiple calls to customer service to actually get the email to authorize the return.

    Great tripod until it broke

    This is the second joby mini gorilla I've had. The first one lasted about 6 months and then broke but that one was not treated as well. This one I babied and it still broke, after having it for only 3 weeks. The joint at the top where the camera attaches is weaker than the rest of the tripod and has been the breaking point both times. This is a great tripod, just needs to be redesigned or different materials used so it won't break so easily.

    I was really unhappy with this tripod. I'm not sure if my camera is too heavy or what. I have the Canon G5X. The legs work great! But... the part that screws into my camera sucks it refuses to get tight enough. All my other tripods screws in perfectly fine.

    This brand has made a good name for themselves with a quality product. Unfortunately mine was unusable after a couple weeks. The plastic maneuverable balls that clip together lost their durability and would not stay in place at all.

    I picked up the tripod with the legs and the pivot joint separated at the camera mount dropping my camera onto concrete, luckily it wasnt an expensive new camera. It works ok but isnt super tight so it may be droopy in certain situations

    Flimsy item does not hold camera like I expected it to, it is also made of poor quality and the top that secures camera broke the first month I had it.

    It worked for about day but then one of the legs fell off. It also didn't grip very well either when I tried to wrap it around anything thinner than a broom stick.

    We needed something to attach our GoPro Hero to a softball field fence. The salesman recommended this; didn't work, so returned.

    I'all be heading back to Best Buy for an exchange. Although this look great, the top snapped off on the second use.

    Too flimsy. This trip wasn't able to hold a phone or light camera straight.

    Not enough strong, just for little cameras. Weak product
