    This was great before it broke.

    This thing fit perfectly in the vent of my car and made navigation with Google Maps a lot better. Sometimes it has issues with falling off, and I don't know if that's because my phone is kind of heavy, or if it's because the product just couldn't get a strong enough grip sometimes. It didn't happen all the time, just sometimes. The grip size for the phone is adjustable, so you can fit a lot of different sizes into it fairly easily. It can also rotate 360 degrees, so if you want to flip it from portrait to landscape orientation, it's really easy to do (you just need to be careful because the majority of the time when it would fall out of the vent is when I would adjust it). I was using it pretty much everytime I got into the car, but one day the clip adjuster to get it to clamp onto the vent just broke off in my hand. I'd consider getting another one, because it lasted multiple months, but if there was a product out there with better grip and a sturdier design, I'd probably opt for that instead.

    This is a great holder. I have an iPhone 8+, with a case, it held my phone tightly without fear of it falling out. Rotates so you can get portrait or landscape depending on which way you like to see the maps on your chosen navigation. Easy to fit into the slat of the vent and again, holds very tightly. My only gripe with this product is that it is on the vent at all...not really a problem with the holder....blocks one of your vents HVAC, which could potentially be a problem in the inter if it overheats your phone.

    It’s all in the mount

    I have previously purchased and used a previous version of this product and loved it. The problem with this particular version is the pinch mount is too loose and more bulky than the static mount on my previous version. This version has two buttons you depress to widen the silicone/rubber teeth that the vent slides between. After inserting to the vent you release pressure from the buttons and it is supposed to clamp down. I find the buttons to be bulky which adds to the problem of the mount being too loose and heavy for most vents.

    I’ve used many different versions of this phone holder and thought I had finally found the perfect one when I bought this one. At first, the fit on the vent is very tight and secure holding the phone stable (which is the idea) but within a couple of months, the various parts began to loosen and every time I drove over even the smallest bump, the phone and holder came flying off. I finally gave up and bought one of the holders that uses suction to attach to your dash. Very happy with that type of holder.

    This product is pretty good for a few dollars, and has held up my heavy Note 8 with the rugged oem case since day 1. It grips the vents very tight and the button on the back is easy to use to move the vent fin you are on up or down. The extension fits many different size phones (do not have exact numbers) and pivots the phone approximately 100 degrees in any direction (total travel, not per side) so that you may aim the phone up even if your vent is aiming down.

    This broke in 6 weeks right where the teeth expand to fit in the vent. Until then the ball hinge, while nice, would slowly turn down over time and have to be adjusted. If you can still find the original one, the Airframe+, it's amazing! Had it for years until I left it in a rental car. This new version is over engineered.

    The airframe Pro is a nice piece of hardware. Clipped onto my air vent in a very tight manner does not slip off. You’re able to go vertical or horizontal with the phone orientation. I have an iPhone XS which is a heavy phone but this clip held in place perfectly. Just remember if you’r using your car heater, stop the airflow to the vent that this is attached to. You don’t want to heat up your phone! Very nice product.

    It suddenly broke apart after only 4 months!

    From the beginning I had a tough time getting this vent month to attach and stabilize into the vents. The adjustable latches seemed very flimsy and not strong enough to hold my iPhone 7 plus suspended. Fast forward 4 month, while I was trying to get my phone to be attached to this mount, it suddenly gave way and the latches broke apart into pieces. It is very disappointing to spend $30 for this thing and then throw it away after 4 months. Very dissatisfied.

    Finally a solid dashmount holder that works!

    This is an excellent, sturdy, rock solid phone holder that sticks to your dashboard like glue. It seems to be really well designed and well made. There are very few moving parts, other than the jaws to hold the phone. The 360-degree rotation is dampened and magically stays where you set it without anything to tighten/loosen. No wonder it comes with a lifetime warranty.

    I've had various phone holders for vents, and somehow they get misplaced or broken. So as I was in market for another, looked at this product. Was bit concerned that it was pricier than others, but gave it a try. Very pleased so far...Feels solid and phone stays put in place, and I like the flexibility to rotate phone.

    Great vent mount - Good range of motion

    I wanted something that wasn't a window mount for my iPhone and this has been great. It has a wide range of motion and stays where you put it. The only thing you have to watch is when you remove your phone it loosens its place on the vent and so I find myself re-securing the mount before every other use. Once set though it is great and one of the better that I have tried.

    This is a great updated product from Kenu. I had their original phone holder for about 4.5 years. Recently it wouldn’t keep my phone in place so I looked for a replacement. Their updated version is improved in so many ways. Holds the phone in place nice and secure and I’m able to adjust it at any angle now.

    Best holder I have found.My car has vents at an angle.Pop socket holder is on an Otterbox defender case.This unit holds.You truly can position it as you like.I could never get the popsocket holder to work .The only thing I have to be careful with is when you put phone on the mount be careful you don’t hit the reset button.

    I would give it 0 stars if possible. Will not hold a Galaxy Note 8 with or without a case. Even though it says all vent types will not work in an Audi TTS. I then tried it the wife's Jeep also a nogo it just sits limp if you have a charger or aux cable attached it puts pressure on them in the ports. Extremely awkward mounting your phone to this thing with it already on vent.

    I have been looking for a good holder that would not damage my air vent. This is perfect as it does not "clip" on but rather clamps on without causing any damage. This also holds my GS8+ with a mophie battery pack and it fits perfect without falling off. I would highly recommend this product, it's a little pricey but its solid and should last a very long time.

    Although this product hold my phone in place the vent clip part would slip off the vent that it’s meant to hold on to. Afternoon some minor adjustments I found this product very beneficial . Especially in this day of texting and driving or distracted drivers on the roadways.

    I needed to buy one more item for my bundle to save money so I bought this. i have the S9+ and it does fit nice and tight in the grippers but the weight of the phone + hitting a few potholes and my phone ended up on the floor under my feet, not good when your on the highway. Good news the gripper never left go of my phone but it did fail to hold on to my air vent.

    I've used this a couple times so far and it's pretty good. I've seen these phone car holders come in different formats but I mainly didn't want one where I had to have something on my phone. I like this but when I put my phone inside the clip, it drops the angle of my vent all the way down which is annoying but not too bad. Overall I'll give it a 4/5 stars.

    I'm a new driver who uses his phone as a gps a lot, and I found myself needing a phone holder and this one works okay. If the road is too shaky the stand might change angles a bit, but it's great for regular driving. A down side is that if it's cold you can't have it on with the heater.

    I needed a good hands free holder for my iPhone that did not require sticking to my window or installing hardware. This clips right onto the air vent blade and holds the phone secure. It even lets it tilt and rotate a bit for a custom view. It does block a portion of the air coming from the vent, but not a noticeable amount.
