    Absolutely Terrible Phone Mount

    This phone mount was so incredibly bad that I think my phone would've stayed better attached if I just tried to hold it up with willpower instead. The clip was so finnicky and stupid that it fell out of the vent before I got to the end of the first street after installing it. I figured it was user error, pulled over to a stop, reread the instructions, and mounted it again. This time I pushed it in much further and harder to make sure it stayed. Again, by the end of the street it had fallen out. On my way to returning it it fell out by the end of every street I bothered to try to attach it.

    The mount is easy to install and I like that you can attach and detach the phone with only one hand. The only problem is that the “fingers” that grab on to the vent louvers do not grab well enough. If I am adjusting the phone or trying to rotate it 90* it is easy to pull The wole mount lose from the vent. If the “fingers” grabbed the back side of the louvers it would prevent this problem. After several months I’m still using the mount so it’s not too bad of a problem I guess.

    Not worth buying. Mount was always falling out of the vent due to the poor design of the vent mount (No teeth to hold/grab on to the vents). Extendable cradle is super annoying to use since you can't set it to a certain length'width to match your phone, it simply extends/grips your phone as you push your phone into place. You normally end up pulling the whole mount+Braket off your vents when trying to take your phone off the holder. Definitely the worst car phone mount I've ever had to use.

    Doesn't work with iPhone 6 Plus

    This part that holds the phone expands wide enough to hold my iPhone 6 plus, which has a lightweight latex case. The grip is quite strong. However, my car vent slats are vertical, not horizontal. The two plastic thingies that are supposed to grip the vent slats are smooth plastic. They are not strong enough and do not have a grippy finish, so the device immediately falls on the floor of the car with the phone attached. A worthless product. (I drive a 2015 Toyota.)

    Well it is my second time buying this item. The clips in the back after a while no longer hold on to the vent they easily come out but best buy does not carry them and I don't like to shop on the inter net so because it is cheap I just bought another one but the same thing is happening all others have the same clip even the more expensive ones . it would be great if best buy carried the clips

    Not the best phone stand

    My fiance bought this phone stand and it clips to your vent clips on your car. It works for his phone but I have a case on my phone and I guess due to the weight of it, the whole phone stand with my phone in it always falls off the vent and doesn't stay but it does for his phone so I guess it depends on the weight of your phone. There are better phone stands available at bestbuy.

    Badly Made. Don't Buy

    We have been looking for a mobile phone car holder that did not require permanent attachment to the dashboard. This product seemed to be a perfect solution. In a little over a month, the prongs that hold the holder to the car vent have broken and the holder will no longer support the phone or stay attached to the vent.

    The section that attaches to the vent neither grips or does it have hooked ends to keep it in place. Every time you go to remove your phone it comes off with it and if you make a sharp turn or for whatever reason have to do an erratic move it will fly off the vent.

    I’ve had two problems with this car holder. The first being that it frequently fell out of the vent - usually at the most inoppertune time and eventually it broke although I never abused it. (I did want to abuse it when it would fall out of the vent)

    After purchasing this product I tried it for a month and in less then a month it broke. I have an iPhone 8 and it seemed like my phone was too heavy for it. Not a big fan and will not purchase this product again.

    I didn’t like that the pieces wouldn’t stay together. Not to mention, this product says it was made for my phone (iPhone 8+) but whenever I would put my phone in it, it would slink down & was extremely hard to see.

    Needed something for my phone while traveling. Worked ok but did slip out or around a few times. Could be difficult to release my phone (Samsung 8+). Wouldn't use for every day but for a trip or short duration it worked.

    Phones are too heavy

    My Samsung is in a protective case, not sure if the overall weight was too much for this holder, but would not stay affixed to the air vents. Yes the phone stays "firmly held" to the device but the whole apparatus, including phone, would fall to the gloor.

    The quality was decent. But the installation and stability were terrible. The clamps on the back began to spread (i assume due to heat) so every turn i made or bump i hit, the mount would fall right off.

    I thought I had found the "one" that would hold my GPS. It was great for about a month, then just hit the floor of the car while I was goine down the road. I cannot get it to stay connected, now. I am taking it back. So sad

    I have to give this product an average star rating simply for the fact that it is not Eazy-E to place that phone into this device. Also does not stay in place when placed into The air vents On a vehicle

    I have the Apple XR. It’s difficult to fit the phone in the holder. I feel like I’m going to break it. It also keeps falling out of my vent. Maybe the phone is too heavy for it.

    It appeared to to versatile but did not work in 2 of my 3 intended uses. Product just doesn't work on 2 of my cars, and the one it works on, it falls off and drops the phone hard on the center console when I go over a bump.

    really doesn't grip vents well to begin with and once the heater is on expect the plastic to get soft and not recover. Buy a car with Android auto or Apple car play.

    Good product but my only gripe is that sometimes it falls out of the vent if the device is too heavy or when the car vibrates/shakes. Maybe best to put in a vent directly in the middle of your car.
