    Originally I was using the pop socket holder that has a sticky backing on it. It worked great for a road trip in a rental car that had a plastic dash board. It was very stuck in place but still came off easily when i needed to remove it and left no residue. I purchased another for my Cadillac SRX but it absolutely did not stick whatsoever to my leather dashboard. So this brought me to purchasing the pop socket holder for the air vent. It works fine. Holds the phone. I'm giving it four stars out of picky-ness. The holder does not attach to the vent strongly enough. It takes two hands to place the phone in the holder so that the holder does not move or come loose during placement. So that's annoying. Once the phone is placed in the holder though I have not had any issues with it moving or falling out. But if you are driving and want to remove the phone and then put it back one handed, if you do not do it gently enough it will turn or move on the vent. Overall I'm pleased with it but I still liked how the holder with the sticky backing worked better and wished it would have worked on my leather dashboard.

    Was disappointed with it...

    So I needed a mount for my car and since I heard there was a mount to go with my popsocket decided to buy the popsocket mount. I was very excited that I would be able to use my popsocket in another way on top of all the great uses for it. Well I was very very disappointed. I placed it in the middle of my dashboard in my car and was working great! But before I got to my destination it fell off and along with it came some of the paint from the dashboard so as much as I tried to place it back on it just wouldn't work! I am guessing my phone must have been too heavy but I figured that the glue on the back would be as strong as the popsocket glue but I was wrong. I ended up having to crazy glue it to an old mount and use it that way. I really wanted this to work but unfortunately it just didn't. Also unfortunately I gave one to a friend for her birthday when I got mine and did not work for her either. We both have a V20 so in case you have the same phone and want one it won't work. And if buy any chance you do have this phone and it worked for you let us know how you did it! LOL! I guess they might only work with lighter phones.

    I was really looking forward to this cell phone mount, until I used it. There's not much to it. What you don't see is that on the backside of the item, there's a small sticky area. Basically two-sided tape. You peel off the cover and just stick it to the surface you want it on. So, be aware you're applying tape and adhesive to your dash, car, etc. If you have a vehicle you care about, that's something to consider. But, in my case it did not matter. I cleaned the surface, dried it, and then applied the adhesive socket mount.... it was awesome for about 15 seconds. Then it totally gave up and fell off. After that, it would not stick any more and just became useless literally after about 15 seconds of use. It can NOT hold the weight of a Galaxy S9+ with an Otterbox Commuter case on it. At all. Esp if you place / remove the phone from the mount with any regularity. Will be looking into replacement or refund, for sure.

    I decided to try popsockets with my phone and needed a way to mount the phone in the car (had previous used a case with a clip and a vent mount). I read a lot of reviews that said the adhesive on the mounts was horrible. I didn't even try to use it on my dash as is. Instead, I decided to use velcro, sticking the fuzzy side to the dash (between the vents) and the rough side onto the back of the mount. Once I peeled the mount's adhesive-backing paper, I could tell that the adhesive was nowhere as sticky as the popsocket, itself, nor the adhesive on the velcro. Since I stuck adhesive velcro to the mount's adhesive area, I think it will work better than if I just used the mount by itself. It definitely holds my phone. The popsocket slips into the mount pretty easily, but firmly. I can also move the mount somewhere else by setting up another velcro area. I will be buying another one. I can't figure out why they don't use the same adhesive on the mount that they use on the popsocket - very sticky and re-useable multiple times.

    Simple and Low profile, but caution...

    This holder is a great companion to the pop-socket, allowing me to mount my phone in the car which is so useful when navigating with mapping apps. Installing it is simply pushing it onto the fins of your car’s air vent. It’s usefulness really depends on how and where your air vents are situated and located. For example, if the air vents are too angled so looking at the screen would be awkward, or if the fins are too thick. Also, a word of caution: I broke a couple fins off my air vent, maybe because I was trying to reposition the holder when it was cold and was pushing at an angle? Or maybe because my car is old and the thin plastic fins are just brittle. I’d still recommend using this holder, just try not to mess with it when you have it installed where you want it!

    The product does what is intended, sorta. While it might work well for others I found myself not using it just a week or two after purchasing. Reason is once the base is on my vent, the mount/dismount requires a little force that either interrupts me while driving since I need to use both hands or in my attempts to use one hand I end up knocking the dock out of the vent. Also, I have a Samsung Note and the dock barely hangs on to the vent which I attribute to my phones weight (no case on my phone btw). Being that I live in Chicago and no stranger to deep crater like potholes, I have this uneasy feeling that my phone is one pothole away from flying off the vent and landing in some awkward position leading to a cracked screen and a very unhappy me. So, small as my issues may be I've decided this dock is not for me.

    So I love LOVE the idea that you now can use your popsocket on a holder, especially in the car. This saves me from buying a whole different type of holder or finding one that's even big enough for my phone (Have the SNote9). HOWEVER.... this holder's design is too flat. There's NO WHERE in my car that's flat or that'll hold my phone to where I can see it. The purpose of mounting your phone is so you can see it while driving. You can't with this unless you're one of the lucky few. The holder needs to be flex able or able to turn so you can see your phone. So a different design would be appreciated. I know lots of people who use popsockets. MAKE MORE INVENTIONS FOR IT!

    Perfect phone mount in car

    This car mount is perfect for use with the PopSocket that I have on the back of my iPhone 6. It's very similar to the car mount I had before I purchased a PopSocket. It fits perfectly into my car vent and the PopSocket slides perfectly into the car mount. I did not want the $10 mount because you had to stick that one onto your dashboard or some place like that and I do NOT want to stick anything permanently onto the dash of my car that I cannot move when I need to. So this one was perfect. It's $14, but worth the money. Be sure that you put the mount exactly where you want it because it may be hard to pull off of your vent. I want mine to be secure, so I placed it exactly on the 3rd row of my vent. It's awesome and so it the PopSocket for holding my phone.

    re the mount, there's a lot i like about it and a few things i don't. here goes: you need to find a space for it that works for you and the cockpit. if you have an iphone (eg iphone 6s+) well, they hide a lot of car stuff when you mount the phone in front if it unless you find an area that works. i had it on my infinity f35 and it was perfect. i couldn't put it in my nx 200 t. plus integration of the phone into car systems is always improving and soon you won't need to access your phone. until then, or you have an older car, this is great mount. the only problem is that in hot weather, the mount will not hold. so you have to superglue it to the car and maybe your phone case as well. other than that...great.

    I have a popsocket. I LOVE it. I have a mount in my vehicle which has stuck and stayed on the perfectly flat surface I found for it. However when I bought this second mount for my husband's vehicle, I couldn't find a perfectly smooth surface. I tried to stick it to a slightly textured surface but it fell off. I was ultimately left to just place it back into a package to return it. I'm really bummed because I LOVE my other one. Maybe it's a faulty mount? Maybe not? I don't know. But I don't care enough to try again. Returning this mount and not bothering with another one. First one was perfect. Second...meh. I'll recommend them as long as you have a smooth surface to stick it to.

    I bought this for an unconventional use - trying to find alternative ways to hang a telescope hand controller on the mount. I had heard that these didn’t stick well, but that has been far from the case for me. I have pulled it off and stuck it back on in different spots several times, not expecting it to stay but just trying to find the best location to mount something for good, and it just keeps on sticking. I bang around in the dark hitting it and sometimes pulling on it and it has never fallen off. I’m not sure whether they all work like this, but I’ve tried two of them on several surfaces without any problems.

    Excellent compact vehicle phone mount

    This product works with the pop socket attached to the back of your phone. The mount is easily attached to the air vent and stays in place well. What I find particularly attractive is how little space it takes up. When not in use, it is not in the way and it isn’t an eye-sore either. My phone’s pop socket easily slides into (and out of) the mount and the phone can be turned to be vertical or horizontal. If you’re looking for a mount that takes up as little space as possible and makes it easy to put your phone in and take it back out, then this is what I recommend (provided you have a pop socket on your phone).

    I bought this initially to hold my phone in my car since that's one way it suggests use. However my dash does not have a nice flat surface that's out of view of the ac or stereo. I did adhere to a part of the dash but it kinda blocks my ac, not too bad but I also have an iPhone 6 Plus so I know my phone is big as well. One other thing I noticed if your going to place in your car, since the pop sockets turns 360 occasionally a turn or bump will cause the phone to turn upside down. It won't fall out but deff slide left or right. I think this would work great on the wall by a nightstand. I like organization especially with cords so having it on the wall by my bed for me sounds nice.

    Traveller cell phone "Must Have"

    This little invention is awesome and way better than the car vent cell phone holders. I often try the heater vent holders. I've tried them all! So 1 you give up your air circulation in that vent and 2 the phone ALWAYS falls on the floor. BUT, this little thing paired with the pop socket of your choice voids both of those problems. Haven't had a problem yet and I can remove the pop socket from my phone case by carefully running it under warm water and slowly peeling it off. Let it dry. Stick on another case. 2 thumbs up!

    I purchased this ONLY because I already had a pop socket and figured for 15 bucks it wouldn't have any issues. I was wrong. I'm not sure what the issue is but this is not secure at all. When there's no phone its fine. The popsocket seems to be a little too small for the mount (yes it's a REAL popsocket not a knock off) and it's CONSTANTLY falling off the mount while i'm driving. It either falls off or flops downward in way that makes it hard to see what's on the screen. Very annoying. I have an iphone 8 plus if it matters.

    I just recently got this, and I already love it. It fits on my car vent perfectly. It makes it easy to see your phone while navigating. I also like it because I can switch the song while my phone is connected via Bluetooth. The only downsides are the phone does block the air coming out of the vent, and it will make your phone hot or cold (depending on the setting you have it on) which could lead to mechanically problems with the phone over time. Also, my vents go up and down, so my phone weighs it down so it always is pointing downward. Overall, it is a cheap gadget that I would recommend.

    So I bought this mount online when I bought my popsocket in the hopes of finally having a reliable system for holding my phone in the car. Unfortunately, there was not a lot of information available at the time about how the mounting system worked so I did not know there would be an issue with mounting. The adhesive area on the mounts back is is flat to the mount and there is no way to adjust this so that the mount is usable with any shape of dashboard. This made the mount unusable in my car because the only flat space available was located too closely to the steering column. If purchased, make sure you have a decent amount of flat space available.

    I love this vent holder for my popsocket. I love that it just attaches to the vent in my car, unlike the other one that sticks to the dashboard of you car which you can’t teally move if you would like. So I like that’s a I can choose to put it in a different spot if I would like. It’s amazing for using in my car when I need to use the GPS on my phone and navigate myself - it’s honestly just great all around! I would definitely recommend this to other people, and in fact bought a couple as gifts for friends and family this year as well.

    I have been using the PopSocket system to mount my iPhone in the car for more than a year and recently the plastic socket snapped off. Since purchasing the PopSocket system last year, I have found this system indispensable, I bought this new replacement socket at more than $10. For a tiny piece of molded plastic and a strip of adhesive, I find this charge extremely expensive. And yet, it is the best system I have used, so I paid the price to continue to enjoy hands free usage of the phone in the car. Cudos to the designer of the system.

    Perfect for phone calls, FaceTime, gps, or just to keep your phone in one place during a car ride. My boyfriend picked one up shortly after I got mine. He didn’t even have a pop socket, he bought one just so he could use this. It’s SO secure and super easy to use. Only concern I have is once the weather gets colder, my phone will be right up against an air vent and if I’m blasting heat to warm the car.. it’ll heat my phone up. Otherwise no complaints. Great product
