InVent Universal Phone Vent in Car Holder
No good for our Qashqai
After seeing a comment that this would fit the Qashqai. I went ahead to purchase this. It is a well built product and the service delivery from MobileFun excellent. However it does not fit, so will see if it will fit our sons car or rather than paying postage back will give to a Charity Shop. Hence the three stars given.

Great Product
A great purchase. I have tried several different phone holders that clip onto the vent grill, and do far they have left me a little disappointed. This , however, has a secure fit and holds fast, even with the weight of my over sized Note 3. The only quibble I have is it's size. Although it said on the item page that it fits my phone, it's a real squeeze. Maybe it will give a little after some use. All in all though, it's a great product, as have all my purchases from Mobile Fun.

Not Convinced
Bought this for my Dad who's 88 and is the proud owner of a new iphone for his birthday. I didn't fit it for him, just left him to put it into his Skoda Octavia. Came back a few days later and it was sitting on the passenger seat as he'd not managed it. To be fair I struggled to get it to attach securely to the air vent and am still not convinced it will bear the weight of the phone, particularly if the going gets rough. At least it expands to fit most phone sizes and grips his well. Time will tell.

not for this vehicle
On the strength of this inVent phone holder working well in my Zafira, I bought another for my Fiat Ducato based camper. However, the camper has vertical vents rather than horizontal on the Zafira and it doesn't really work. So if your vehicle has vertically spaced plastic vents, think twice before you buy this product. IMHO.

bought 2 having read loads of good reviews
Very disspointed with product. Does fit and securely lock different size phones however I expected a higher quality product to be honest. If I had seen item in a shop most definitely would have left it there!!!! Doesn't fit all car vents especially if vent slats are deep. Rattles around a lot when driving especially if no phone fitted. Lack of padding on spring clip and support legs, which would also greatly reduce rattling. Maybe I expected too much but massive room for improvements. Regret my purchase. On positive note, can't fault delivery/ despatch and tracking info provided by mobile fun

LG G3
Completely Useless
Because of the design of the vents on the Mazda 6 this in-vent holder couldn't be attached. The middle vents wouldn't allow the bottom stabilising legs a surface on which to operate and the right hand vents interfered with the door. The holder sticks out too far from the vent as well so it wobbles. Cannibalised the holder to work with another attachment.

Very pleased with this item. Much more sophisticated than you'd think for the price: fully adjustable and should fit most devices. Can be turned different ways so should fit most car vents, it sits out from the vents so doesn't interfere with air flow. Has locked positions and holds my phone securely. It allows all ports to be free for charging etc on the go!

Does the job
This is a simple holder that was relatively easy to fit and holds my phone (and my 'Garmin') securely, the slightly unusual shape of my vents renders the stabilizers no use but it holds well enough anyway, I'm sure it would be even more firmly held if my vents/dash were not so rounded. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't want anything fancy.

This item is listed as being compatible with the iPhone 5S, well it isn't. Not if you want to use the earphone socket, which is at the bottom of the phone. One of the bottom supports covers the socket so you can't use a lead to play audio through the aux port on the car stereo. Sent it back.

Samsung S3
Good but....
Bought 2 of these and while they are generally good once installed, are a very good idea and grips the phone well. They do have a few issues which I have removed 2 stars for... 1) The instructions on the outside of the box are not clear, especially around turning the hook from the vertical to horizontal position. 2) Regarding turning the hook (which you can do) the only way I could do it (on both units) was to loosen the holding screw slightly to release the mechanism, turn then retighten the screw. 3) You really need a vent that is at or near 90 degrees vertical. e.g. many cars have vents that follow the dashboard profile and are sloped back at a low angle, which this unit cannot fit to as the weight of the phone releases the spring loaded mechcanism and the holder becomes loose. 4) The locking mechnism for the grips is not very positive and often springs back up in to the unlock position, until you slide or wobble the grips a little, so is a bit fiddly to use. Once positively locked though it stays in place.

Cheap price. Cheap product.
This is an inexpensive way to hold a thin device, but I wish I had spent a bit more for a better made product. There is no padding anywhere on the holder, it barely holds my iphone with lifeproof case, and the adjustments are flimsy and keep coming undone.

Awesome Car Mobile Phone Holder
I purchased this phone holder because i have been looking for a decent holder for a long time, but couldn't find any that worked properly, ive tried the grip it which would loose suction when the phone was attached. this phone holder stays put and holds your phone at a good level to be able to watch the road , you can adjust it easily to what ever direction you want the phone to be displayed.

Samsung Galaxy Note (with back-replacement flip cover)
Spot on!
Having faffed with other suction cup type devices (leaving my phablet phone too far away from my cigarette lighter for charging) and other cradles (that aren't wide enough for the original Note WITH a cover on), this was a great find! It 'just' fits the covered Note on it's widest setting - which is great, a good snug fit is what you want, achievable with smaller handsets via the adjustable back. The twist & lock ball-joint fitting makes positioning a breeze and for the 'feet' help support the cradle against my little Peugeot's rounded plastic around the control column - finally, I can plug my phone in without cables getting in the way of the radio, gear stick, handbrake... ...great little product!

Good product
The device works well. I have fitted it to a 2003 Ford Focus and had to squeeze the metal hook together slightly with pliers to get it to fit between the slats in the air vent, but this was easy to achieve. Once in place the phone is secure and easy to manipulate between portrait and landscape. It is possible to set the side pieces to hold the phone in place without making it difficult to remove. The phone is positioned close enough to the driver to a) see easily and b) be controlled with the touchscreen without, and without being in the way when moving your left hand between gear stick and steering wheel. I would recommend this product.

Did not fit
The item was almost correctly described. Unfortunately the use of the term 'Universal' was not fully justified. Yes, it will fit the vents of most cars but did not fit the vent of the Toyota Prius and, if it had fitted the vent, it obscured the LCD display panel. In view of its very small cost I have given it away (yes, a gift) to a friend who is able to fit it into the air vent of his 'normal'car.

Essential accessory
I found this item to be completely useless and poorly made in that, on first using it it fell apart and allowed my phone to crash to the floor of my vehicle. The vent attachment was too flimsy and the side supports did nothing to steady the item. It is a great pity because I do, in fact, need 2 of this type of holder. I would not recommend this item.

This did what it said on the packet! holds your phone in place so you can view and use hands free. Screw at back allows you to tilt and hold to your preferred angle. Very easy to fit and a lot better than some of the others on the market. Will adjust to fit even if phone has a case on.

HTC one
Different from the rest
I wanted to use my phone as a sat-nav, the windscreen types held it too far away. I chose this one as it fitted my car vents perfectly and held it a lot closer and in the perfect position (for me) and doesn't obscure the windscreen. It seems flimsy at first but the weight of the phone holds it well. I had to bend the steel hook so it went through the vent easily, if you don't do this you may not be able to remove it. watch your phones width, it only just takes mine (HTC one with a case on). Very limited as It won't fit all cars but if you have the right sort of vents, it does the job well

I wanted a phone holder for when I use Sat Nav on my phone. Didn't want one with a sucker on. Thougnt this was just the job. Fits on the round vent on my Peugeot 308 just fine and therefore doesn't obscure my view through the windscreen. Very handy and reasonably priced.

InVent phone holder - Brilliance
My work colleagues couldn't believe that I put my iPhone 5s in a car cradle that cost less than ten quid, but I can tell you it is a great piece of kit. It fits in the vent and holds the phone at the right height and elevation for the sat nav app to be used safely, with the bonus that the phone can be charged at the same time. Brilliant.

Clever, functional, affordable.
Generally excellent product and good value for money. iPhone 5 users beware: the supports coincide with the position of the headphone socket which means that it will sit at a jaunty angle in the holder. Despite this small problem it remains entirely usable.

InVent Holder
I've had the In Vent Phone Holder for a couple of weeks. My observations: It is very snug (really to tight) if you have a S4 with a small case. A thicker case would likely not fit. The expanding holders are not spring loaded so you have to expand them by hand, not a big deal. While I like the vent attaching apparatus (versus the clips some use), if your car vents are narrow (like mine) then it difficult to slide holder into vent, but much hard to remove (if one so desires). However, I do like the tilting capability and it does hold my phone after insertion. It could be improved by having wider arms for more modern larger phones with cases.

BB Z10
Nearly the best
I bought this holder to be able to fix my phone a bit closer. I have 2-3 holder what is fixed on the windscreen but they are os far, out of reach. It is easy to fix and set up, but it is not rock solid. This is my 1st problem with it. When you put your phone in or take it out, the whole holder is moving and you need to set it up again. When you are driving, the holder hold your phone steadily, I didn't experienced any movement. My 2nd problem is the way it is golding the phone. The arms are holding it fix, but when you put it in, you need to use both hands to close the arms and fix the lock. You also need to use both hands to take it out. I think a spring mechanism would be more useful on this and it would operate with one hand. Other than these small problems I would recommend this product to every BB Z10 user, because you can charge your phone when it is in the holder.

LG G2
Does not work on a 2010 Getz
I really liked the photos and the video for this particular device which fits to the vents on your car. I bought it, opened it and it felt cheap, but what do you expect for £5. Anyway, The device was completely useless with a 2010 Hyundai Getz. You can't use the vent near to the stearing wheel as it touches the indicator stalk. So you have to attach it to the one on the other side of the stereo. The vents on this car are vertical rather than horizontal and when it clips in place, it just slides down. The 2 swivel bits of plastic are useless on my model of car. Worse than that when you turn right the phone slips away to the left as it is connected to the vent. It was a waste of money on my model of car. I'm sure it would be OK on a car with horizontal vents, but it only just opens wide enough for my phone. If I bought it from a shop I would have taken it back straight away.

A good all-rounder
As an all-round phone holder this is definitely the right choice. It is easy to fit and supports my IPhone 5 well. The only issue I found was that the phone has to sit slightly off-centre as the feet that hold the phone in place cover the the earphone/sound socket. However, do not less this put you off as the phone still sits very securely. The only other minor issue is that there are no instructions of how to fit it but if I can work it out anyone can. Very happy with the product and glad I ordered it.

It never worked out
This Invent car holder looked just what I was searching for and the accompanying video was most clear. However, it never worked out for me. Whether it was the design of my car vents (Rover 400 series), because I could not stop them from moving, or the item itself, it was very insecure and the slightest touch caused it to fall off. I have now asked for a replacement holder of a different sort.

This is not as good as it looked on the site. Spring clip is not strong enough to hold on vent firmly , the phone cradle is not spring loaded so you constantly need to keep adjusting it between 'rattling loose' to 'to tight to remove' and the lock system on the back is very fiddley

Bought this item because some of the existing reviews said it worked fine with the Mondeo. My Mondeo is year 12. This is the latest as far as I know. The metal leg for grabbing the vent vane is not long enough even when the end is straightened. I will now pass this item on to a friend to try out. Although it did not work on my car, the idea is good and gave me an idea to make one that does fit my car. Regards

Galaxy Note 3
Note 3, does the job but by no means perfect
Got this holder as I have to connect my Note 3 via headphone jack into my auxiliary input and the air vent was the only place it can go. The unit is only just big enough to house the Note 3, and due to the concave side grips, accessing the very sides of the screen is difficult. Also, when sliding the phone into the grip, it gets quite tight and you have to steady the unit for fear of stressing the vents. The unit is pretty cheap feeling and has a "lock" lever on the reverse which can come unstuck after a while and allows the unit to make rattling sounds. Overall, I don't suppose any centrally placed vent solution is ideal as the phone obscures something on the dash no matter where you put it. If I didn't need the central location and was connecting via bluetooth, then I'd place it elsewhere in the car and probably be happier. Overall, you get by perfectly well using this unit with the Note 3 but it's not perfect.

Pretty good
InVENT Universal Mobile holder is pretty good & met all my expectations of what a product like this should be. The best feature I like is the ball-&-socket joint that allows the mobile to face the DRIVER rather than facing the rear seats. It helps in viewing the mobile effectively even when sunlight peers through the windscreen. I would have preferred the bottom legs to have an anti-slip rubber pad. The holder does not wobble while I drive (mad), but many modern cars have smooth dash & the holder may move slightly if your hand accidentally hits it. That said, the holder grips the mobile really strong when the "Lock" is engaged at the rear. I have no qualms recommending this product to any user who wants a vent-clip mobile holder. I do not see any major weakness in this product, & I am very picky. I had to turn down 4 similar products before settling for this one. Worth every dollar.

On the plus side the metal hook that fixes to the vent is strong and adjustable

InVent universal phone holder
Pretty poor product, if on the vents of my car (corolla) gets in the way of indicated/wiper lever. Sways from side to side. I wouldn't reccommend this product.

Great Value for money
Bought this holder to fit in my Peugeot 208 and I am pleased that it fits really well and holds the phone securely. Very easy to fit in seconds and adjusts and holds my galaxy s3 easily. Feels quite solid for the money I paid and can see it lasting a while. Holder can be angled for good viewing and doesn't feel like it would fall off on a journey. Am in all, pleased with my purchase and it arrived sooner than the email confirmation had stated!

inVENT car 'phone holder
Instant Sat-nav! When the lovely people from my local Audi dealer wanted £114 for a 2013-14 up-date disc and another £120 + VAT to "re-program" the in-car system, I decided to try out the Sat-Nav feature from Google Maps on my Samsung S3 instead. I needed a secure holder and this is what I went for. PERFECT! Provided the 'phone is mounted upright, it is very secure, and fitted the middle of the 3 centre vents on the Audi's dashboard perfectly. Google's Sat-Nav was also great: so for £8.99 I now have an up-to-date in-car system! Result! Get one!

inVENT Universal Phone Vent Holder
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
I received the inVENT Universal Phone Vent Holder very quickly, although I didn't pay extra for this. Unfortunately, I had to return the item. It was for a Samsung Galaxy Note and was just too small to accommodate the phone easily. Not only that but the clips on this unit are incompatible with Ford Transit Connect air vents. The return was very easy and I am certainly not put off from using Mobile Fun in the future.

Unable to fit to Ford Focus 09 Fiesta 11
Sad to say this is one of the few products that I have purchased through Mobile fun that does not work. I purchased two units to try fitting to my Fiesta and our Focus. The units just would not fit without either breaking the plastic in the vent grills or by snapping the actual unit. Neither option was one that I was prepared to engage in. I would not recommend these items unless you are sure that they will fit your model of car .They are not a universal fit.

Great product but not for my car...
This product is an ideal way to have your phone/device in easy reach and fixed and visible. The way it fixes is great and a clever simple idea, however you need to check thoroughly the placement of your vents and the angle they sit at. This device, whilst great, does not fit well in a current Ford Fiesta. Fitting on the drivers side vent clashes with the indicator stalk and wheel and the passenger side vent points too far to the passenger side and can't turn enough to be viewed by the driver.

I have searched and purchased many different phone holders that clip onto the air vent This one is the best constructed and has the most adjustment so can get it exactly where you want it In fact I liked it so much I bought two more, one for the wifes car and one for my daughter It fits my wife's Corsa and daughters Escort no problems With my Astra elite only one of the air vents was suitable and that was too far away from the powerpoint. However as this is so well made ie you can dismantle it as it all screws together i was able to convert it and now it works perfectly

In-car Phone Holder
The inVent Phone Holder was just what I was looking for - simple to setup/attach, stable, no residual "sucker" mark and, most importantly, it grips the phone so it can't fall out - no matter how rough the road. Great value and simply does what it says on the tin.

Not good...
I bought this wanting a holder for my Skoda Superb, that would hold both my Galaxy S4 and my wife's iPhones. The only place it fitted, it obscured the in-car satnav. It would not lock in the vents and slid across as we cornered, and actually fell off at one point. It was very difficult to change the phones. Build quality was poor. Ended up getting a refund. Mobile Fun were very prompt in getting this to me. Can't fault the company, just the product.

Nokia Lumia 820
disappointing despite obvious engineering effort
I did ask on the Questions and Answers thread if it was compatible with my phone - the Lumia 820 - and was told it was. But it is not really. The spring-loaded top arm goes nto the vent okay. However, the right-hand side grip-arm that holds the phone in place also obscures the power button on the side. Suppose you stop in a layby and want to use the sat nav app. You have to take the unit out of the gripper in order to wake up the phone and do your stuff. This is already annoying me after only a couple of trips. The whole unit is not stable in my car. The little padded feet on the lower support have barely any grip on the interior surface of my car - a Skoda fabia - so the thing tends to slide and wobble on any but the most gentle of turns in the road. This just makes me anxious that the thing will flip over while I am driving. So I am disappointed with this product. It's clear that some effort has gone into the design and construction of the device. Perhaps for other phone and car combinations it is just right but for me it's not. So this review has to be a combination of the product and the pre-sales advice I received for it.

Did the job ... Eventually
The holder fits the iPhone 5 (very few do) and offers good adjustment of position and screen angle... so far so good. Unfortunately the design of the air vents on my C Class Mercedes meant the mounting was insecure as the lower supporting arms had to be set too narrow which placed the phone too far away from the dashboard and too close to the steering wheel. I worked out that the problem was the retaking clip that fits inside the air vent was too long so I dismantled the holder, sawed half an inch off the clip and put another bend in it. It was more difficult to insert in the air vent but is now secure and doing the job it was designed for.

This is the best suited mobile or sat nav holder I have come across. It fits neatly into any vent and the spring loaded lock makes sure it stays there. The played feet, which are cushioned, enable the holder to be seated in a stable position. Just open it to the size required and lock it in position. Good quality at the right price.

Not Good.
Purchased this with the idea of in-car legality, sadly this is not going to last long, my device appears to be to heavy for the cradle and trying to locate it without movement is poor. I imagine during the winter months with the heaters on, this cradle will weaken and break. I doubt whether this is the right cradle for my phone but it is what has been advertised. All in all a poor product but cheap all the same, and will be looking for an alternative. Great service from the seller it has to said though.

Great inVENTion
The great thing about this phone holder is that it connects to the car's air vent so I can place it as near to me as I want it. It's perfect for hands free calls and sat nav. The phone holder arms are adjustable so I can keep my phone case on too. The phone is held tightly in position with a lock-in-place clip, so it's not going anywhere! The ball joint is ideal for getting the perfect angle and once you're happy with it, you lock that in place too. Great product!

Galaxy S3
Very handy accessory
Been looking for a practical car holder for a while, I don't like the windscreen mounted ones and don't want to screw / glue onto the interior! Tried a couple of dash mounted and vent mounted holders that have been flawed but this one is really good, fits my VW Touran perfectly but not the wife's Qashqai, make sure your car has fairly thin HORIZONTAL slats in the air vent and you can't go too far wrong. Some reviewers state that they can't fit a charging cable into the bottom of the phone whilst in the holder, but even if the port is offset to one side, the holder arms are easily adjustable so you could hold the phone 'off - centre'. The cradle supports the phone well and though it only clips into the vent, it doesn't seem to vibrate or wobble too much, though you might have to experiment a bit to find the best position. 2 very slight minuses but not too serious - it would be great if the release switch was spring loaded so the phone could be removed with one hand and the material pads on the legs leave slight marks on the dash, though these wipe off easily and it may be just because it's new. Overall very good and great value.

Not convinced I'd recommend this
Overall I'm not impressed - the design is clever and looks like it will work well, however in practice I found it flimsy and was worried by how much it bent my air vent (Mercedes E Class). In its defense my phone is large (4.7" Nexus 4) and I also was using it in its rubber case, however that was the point in getting an adjustable design. I'd thin if you had a lighter phone / case and had fixed airvents not adjustable ones it would be a good buy; I'll end up giving it to my brother.....

Having just changed phones to a galaxy s/4 I needed an in car charger as well as a transmitter to stream my music. So when mobile fun advertised one I thought I'd try it. Within minutes of inserting into the power source the damn thing fell off!!(not impressed)...granted, the goose neck was straight out but on the video it states its stong enough to take my phone and bigger!...I ended up having to put an s bend in the goose neck to make it stronger and stay in the power source. I also tie wrapped it to my cup holder to make sure....also on many frequencies I've tried there is constant interference....never had this problem with my old iPhone transmitter...not a happy bunny I'm afraid ... :(

There are positive and negative reviews about this product. I can see why, it doesn't feel very robust and the clamp mechanism isn't the most sophisticated. Having said that it does work well, clipped into my Citroen C5 vent securely, holds the phone well, easy to take off too. So for the price its fine, does the job, reasonable value for money.

I was looking for a phone holder that would hold my phone in a stable but handy position in my van due to the long windscreen a stick on was not suitable. So I thought the vent holder would be the bees knees but I was disappointed with the slack way it was mounted and the unstable way it moved about when driving and also the phone clamp is not ideal. I am not happy with this product.

I hate clutter in my car so have never even had a satnav because of those ugly things that stick to your windscreen and have for years wished that something could do the job but be removed & put out of site when not needed. This is it! I use the satnav on my iPhone when I need it & easily leave my car nice & neat when I don't. One suggestion to the manufacturer - a little padding on the seating lugs would make the product perfect. I'm not complaining though as I am so happy with it, especially at the price.

Hmm good product, not suitable for my car.
It's a good product as it holds my phone securely and it has the full 360 rotation, allowing the driver to see their phone screen where where ever their air vents are. I drive a Vauxhall Corsa 07 Plate and the vents just won't hold the phone, and there is no place to put the supported arms. You would be better getting the frog pad, product which seems brilliant from the videos ive seen. If I could exchange it for that I would. The designs and mechanics of the product is good and tighten upto hold the phone perfectly, unfortunately it's just impractical for my car, that's the only reason for the low rating.

I own an opel corsa 2011 version and this holder troubles me a lot. It is not stable on the car and it mostly happens cause of the low resistance spring that is attached to it.If you try to touch the screen of your phone,the whole device is moving around. I have tighten the round thing (sry i miss the word right now) behind the grip,so this is not the problem. Other than that the grip works well, "hugging" the phone, preventing it from moving around or even falling. I don't regret buying it with that price but i expected to be more stable on the car.

I needed a phone holder primarily to use as a Sat-Nav. I needed it to be close enough to the dash without it being of the type that attaches to the windscreen as it was for work purposes in a fleet of cars so needed to be transferable immediately. This product was very easy to set up and get to grips with. The quality of the build is brilliant. The product ataches to the grill within seconds, holds my phone easily and locks into position without fault - once its in its staying solid. The best part is the price. I was amazed at the price it was marketed at. Comparing the price, other items which were screen mounted started at 3 times the price of this. This item - well worth it!!

The holder was very difficult to fit and I had to use a screwdriver to tighten the legs and velcro tabs to then hold the vents in position. The holder would not stay in position for more than a few minutes and my phone kept falling out no matter how careful I was to lock it in securely. I don't know what vehicle it's supposed to fit, it looked okay in the video but IMO it's not fit for purpose . returned.

Reasonable budget phone holder.
This vent holder isn't at all bad for the price. Reasonably well built, seems sturdy enough. I'm sure you can get more substantial versions for more money, but operating on a budget this is perfectly workable. Once installed it seems quite stable, I did not notice any significant movement during journeys. The swivel mechanism is good, allowing a full range of movement. The only downside to the design is the slight difficulty of putting pressure on the side holders while at the same time locking them, I found that a bit fiddly. I didn't end up using it, simply because on my E60 BMW, the two rubberised 'feet' ended up touching on a surface edge, and small movements resulting in wear to that facia part. This is purely because of the precise fitting on my particular car, I've passed the holder onto another family member with a different car that suits the device better.

Not so suitable
The product needed some modifications for it to even be 'Sort of OK' for my VW Golf. Firstly as prompted by other reviews I had to close the tang befor it would go through the vent vanes. The only optional fit position was to the vent on the off side, when fitted it was very unstable (VW vents are quite short on depth so when the tang was clipped in it moved from side to side. This was made worse because the stabilising arms neoprene pads did not match the dash profile. I made two wedge shaped neoprene pads, glued them on and some stability achieved. I would say this item would need a shorter tang to give a tighter fit and better suit a VW and stabilising arm pads that matched the dash profile so the unit was not rocking/sliding on the plastic part of the arms. I like the design idea but I do not consider the vent fitment 'Universal'.

On the face of it , a good product but......
Wanted an air vent iPhone holder so that I could use Sat Nav discreetly when driving as my job is a chauffeur. Looked around extensively for a suitable product and after having read numerous reviews this product seemed like the best one. Service/delivery time was excellent. Product does not come with instructions but to be fair,it wasn't difficult to figure out. However, I discovered that the flaw in its design was that despite the makers claims, the cradle does not turn 360 (or even 180) degrees meaning that I couldn't turn the cradle fully toward me from the furthest section of the central air vent ( the nearest air vent is too close as my hand obscures the screen when driving). Very annoying! If product ball and socket had been designed with a 1cm bar attaching the rotating ball with the back of the cradle it would allow it to turn fully. End result is that I found it unusable. Otherwise the quality of the product's manufacture is satisfactory.

Didn't work on vertical vent
I know it's been confirmed that this should work on a vertical vent but I can't get it to work at all on a 2013 model Ford Focus. As the vents move side-to-side the holder moves too - the rubber feet not able to grip on the smooth plastic surround. I've requested a return but if anybody has any ideas in the meantime I'd be happy to hear. Otherwise, the product isn't bad for the money - but I'd stick to using it with horizontal vents.

Hi David, unfortunately the inVent is not suitable for vertical vent use. Despite this we hope you are happy with it for use with horizontal vents and thank you for your feedback.

I bought this to hopefully use with my Note, but had a couple of problems, first the jaws didn't open far enough to take the phone, although as its a universal connector, I was able to swap in another holder, and secondly the spring just isn't strong enough to hold the phone in place on the move. It swings all over the shop. This might be a decent buy if you have a small phone and small vents, but otherwise not great.

Holder, being variable, would hold my phone in its case and the swivel head made it useable in both horizontal and vertical orientation. So it seems to fit all the criteria. On arrival, slightly sad outcome. The legs are not suitable for the vents on my car as they are not a flat area. The principle is great, but it may not fit your car. One size defiantly does not fit all.

Citroen C4 Usage
I purchased this Phone Holder as I've found that I'm using my phone(s) increasingly as Sat-Navs. I searched around a bit as I didn't want to spend a great deal of money on one and didn't really like the idea of the suction cup holders. Finding this holder I couldn't see any reviews from people using it in a Citroen C4 hatchback; so I thought I'd post up my impressions. THIS PHONE VENT HOLDER will NOT work in a Citroen C4's central vents - and even if you managed to get it to sit there comfortably, I feel it would be far too close to your steering wheel for comfort. Instead, I've got my hold placed to the right of my steering wheel by the vent near the Drivers side window. The holder works perfectly there and sits in the vent very sturdily. I've had no issues with this product so far, other than the fact that it has absolutely no instructions in the box and I had to spend 20-30 minutes after I accidentally unscrewed the tightening screw, to get it back in place. Fully recommended for people with similar phones. I cannot see this holder working very well with anything much bigger or heavier; i.e. a Samsung Galaxy NOTE 2

At last an easy to fit and remove vent mount
I've tried several vent mounts and while some were easy to fit they were very difficult to remove. I had made one myself but it was very bulky. This one is slender, easy to fit and also quick and easy to remove.( I like to put the holder out of sight when parked ). At first I found it did not hold my phone securely, but then I found the lock lever for the side grips and that makes it very secure.

Sturdy Vent Holder...its the only way.
Living in London the last thing you need is any hint that there might be a GPS or phone left in your car. People even break in if they see the sucker mark from a window holder. So an empty vent holder is the perfect signal that there is nothing interesting in this car. I have had a few vent holders and they are great as they bring the device closer to the driver, and passenger. Its handy if your passenger can also see and use it when changing routes mid journey. Unfortunately many such holders are very flimsy. Not so the inVENT holder. I have it mounted on the central vent, and its rock solid. I can happily tap in a destination etc. without disturbing it. It has a robust construction, with a very secure locking system and ball joint. The joint has a screw to tighten it. In addition it can easily swivel if your passenger wants to take a look. Perfect!

Not the prettiest, and it looks and feels flimsy, but after a few teething problems getting it installed and set up just right, I've used it for my commute 3 times a week for the last 10 months with no problems at all. I have it installed in a 2008 Nissan Micra, and there are no problems charging my Galaxy S3 while mounted. I was initially rather disappointed by it, but it's stood the test of time for something so cheap.

Just the job but!
Best good value air vent holder I have tried so far. I had to perform a minor modification to the metal air vent hook which would not fit inside the vents on a Y Reg 2001 Ford Focus. Just close up the gap in a small vice or use pliers but don't overdo it or the air vent vane won't slide inside it. After this little mod I took it for a test and it remained solid as a rock, no jiggling about or slipping. To sum up, whilst it may not fit all vehicles out-of-the-box, I would still recommend it if you are prepared to make these adjustments if necessary.

Not quite Universal
The "Universal" is a bit of a misnomer as unless you have wide vent holes, it's not going to fit - something not made clear on the photos. So, I bought this not realising. HOWEVER the good thing was that the old vent holder you sold me two years ago had the same backing plate as this new one, which I simply unlocked and clipped into this one making it work perfectly.

Works well (on Ford Focus) with minor tweak
Needed to bend/squash the end of the metal bar/clip inwards with a pair of pliers to fit it through the vents of a Y reg Ford Focus, but other than that no issues and very good value. Holds a Nexus 4 nice and tight. Side clips look a bit low down but it means they are out of the way of the volume buttons to avoid any issues there.

Be a little wary
On the face of it this looks just the ticket and to be fair it is not badly put together. However, it will not serve the purpose with every model out there. If you are an Astra H owner, Corsa and/or Combo owner then steer clear as this holder doesn't perform well with the vents fitted to those vehicles. Older Vauxhalls it is fine with. The spring loaded retaining arm is not adjustable for length and on quite a few modern cars it is too long and the adjustment of the feet doesn't solve the problem. The holder hangs down too far and bouces around with road vibration thereby being unfit for purpose. Ideally a list of all vehicles this product IS suitable for would be very useful, otherwise its a hit andd miss type of purchase.

I needed an in car holder for my samsung so that I could use the inbuilt sat nav and in car charger. I read through many reviews of the holders on offer and didn't want one that "stuck" on the window. The previous reviews for this holder were positive and decided to give it a try. It arrived promptly and it does exactly what its suppose to do. Holds the phone securely and doesn't "wobble" in use and is very easy to remove to hide it away when not in use and to transfer to another vehicle when needed. 10 out of 10.

Unfortunately, the metal arm that hooks over the air vent is not long enough to fit over the air vent on the current Ford Galaxy. It would be helpful if the product description included the length of the arm, and a suitable warning. I am left with a product that may well work on other vehicles but is useless for me.

This is a well made holder which actually stays on the vent due to the spring loaded hook and the adjustable legs. It works well in both horizontal and vertical positions with a knob to the rear making it easily adjustable, The phone is held securely in place as there is a locking feature. It works well with my ExperiaT which is quite a large phone. Very good value for money.

This holder does everything I wanted and more. I need to be able to move my phone between two vehicles, one an old 70's MGB, the unit has the flexibility to easily flit between the two. It's a beautifully thought out bit of design to achieve maximum universality. There is no instruction manual with it but, everytime I thought "wouldn't it be nice if...." I discovered it did. The construction is also rather more substantial than appears at first sight. I'd definitely recommend.

You get what you pay for! This is simple device that attaches to the car vents. It pretty much does what is says on the can. After several weeks use it seems robust enough and the locking mechanism is OK. It relies on gravity and the spread legs to remain in place. The claws gripping the phone work fine. Once mounted the device allows easy operation of the phone. VFM at the price.

Samsung Galaxy S3
Big, clumsy and fragile feeling...but it might suit some
I bought this to support my Samsung Galaxy S3 in the car. I had hoped for a sturdy discrete phone holder, but for me this isn't quite that device. It arrived with no real instructions. that's not too bad since it's just a vent based phone holder...However it's not especially sturdy. Once you tighten the various screws and levers it become a stiff locked item that is difficult to adjust. In addition nothing I could do was ever able to prevent wobblig and shaking when the car moved. Nothing especially major (I have seem far worse!) but a little annoying. This may be more down to the design of my dash but I feel it's worth warning about. Having said that the vent mechanism is one of the better ones that I've encountered and it certainly locked into the vent well enough though it was a little difficult to disengage. The holder also protrudes a ridiculous way from the dash. It's almost level with my steering wheel - which in my opinion is really overkill. Once adjusted it holds my phone well enough but you can't simply lift the phone out without readjusting the grip and that can be awkward. I certainly couldn't find a "quick release" of the sort that I've found on other vent holders which spring the jaws open at a press. This items requires that you pull the jaws apart manually. This causes the whole unit to move and for me there's a risk of scratching the dash or worse damaging the vents. So far I've managed to avoid both but I'm not convinced that will last. If you have a larger car (mine is small convertible), you don't mind the intrusion and you're prepared to take a several minutes at the beginning and end of your journey, this might be the right holder for you. Otherwise I have to suggest looking elsewhere. Me? I'm already looking for a replacement. Anyone want a slightly used vent holder that can double as a crane...?

Good holder, but...
I've been looking for a decent vent holder for my SGS2 for a while as the cheap one I purchased a while back did not fit onto the vent well enough. I did have a window mount one but this needed the phone to slid in the top, which made it difficult as it was near the windscreen. So after reading these reviews I tried this one. First the good things: The adjustable holder is probably the best I've used. As I have a cover on my phone I needed something that would fit. This holds the phone securely but still allows you to easily remove it without much force. It's ideal really. The vent clip is well made and the adjustable bevel means you can have the phone in any direction. Now the not so good: Due to the bevel mount the phone is placed quite a way from the dashboard. This means that it blocks the view of my radio if in the center, or light switch if on the door side. It also means that it gets knocked quite easily when changing gear. This was enough for me to not bother with the vent clip holder. In the end I attached the phone holder part (via some small modifications and a couple of screws) to my existing window mount. This meant that I could have the phone held higher up out of the way and still benefit from the excellent phone grip. So over all not a bad buy, but didn't quite meet my needs on it's own.

tight for the samsung note
this item was listed when i looked for holders for my galaxy note, but I belive the listing just showed all holders as when it arrived I saw it was not really big enough for the note. I can get it to fit, but its by using the max opening and then gently pulling the side apart to slide the phone in. I know that one day this will break, but for the moment it works and when in place look very good and is stable. I would recomend, but would advise other Note users to be aware of the size with any holder listed.

Samsung Galaxy Note
The best of the bunch !!
I have tried three different holders and the best by far, is the Universal phone vent holder.The Galaxy note is fairly wide and heavier than my previous Nokia phone. The first holder was the Brackerton sticky grip. This was totally useless. I bought a cover for my Galaxy note and although it is a very tight fit, the universal holder copes very well and is steady during driving. I gladly endorse this holder and am most pleased with it.

Holds the phone
I was looking for a pone holder that wasn't a suction mount, this looked to be ideal. It does what it says on the tin, however where it sits in my 07 Ford Focus means that the legs sit on the shiny part at the top of the radio bezel. This allows the whole holder to move around when the phone is in place, and in some instances tilts the phone right when I need to get the the indicator stalk. Over all, it holds the phone in reach to be able to use it as a sat nav and to answer calls.

Having tried several times to find a phone holder which would fit the vents in my car (It is a Ford KA with awkward vents) this product arrived swiftly. I went out and within a matter of seconds was able to fit the phone holder and have now been using it for two weeks - the holder is rigid and supports the phone brilliantly so that it doesn't move even when driving over bumpy country roads.

Bought this item for my Nokia N8 to use with maps in Citroen Picasso. Fits neatly on air vent. Clamps phone well, even my large heavy Nokia. Have just started using it so cannot comment on longevity. Downsides so far are that the clamp obscures charging point, so would be difficult to clamp and charge at the same time in the car. Also there are no instructions at all. Apart from this it seems to be just what I want.

Not quite "universal", ok for phones that don't try to be a tablet!
Seems like it would do the job for smaller phones but using the Galaxy Note with the official Book/flip-style protective case means I have to force the phone into place. Also when getting it out, it grips the phone so tightly (this is on the holder's widest setting)that the case unclips and I have to pop it back on. When the more substantial case I've ordered finally arrives, I'll only be able to use this holder by taking it out of the case first. It's also a bit wobbly on my Ford Focus Estate (51-reg) and Ford Focus C-MAX (53-reg) but usable once in place.

Fantastic mobile phone holder
I bought this phone holder for my iPhone 4 so that i could view my phone easily whilst driving & use the sat nav app. This phone holder exceeded my expectations. It sits well on my air vent (VW Golf) and holds my iPhone well in its case. The design of the holder also means I can put my phone on charge whilst driving and if I want to turn my phone landscape for sat nav purposes, I can. I'm over the moon with this product, so if your looking for a phone holder to hold your iPhone in its case, then look no further. I highly recommend this product.

Good value, but could be better
This was delivered very fast by Mobilefun, no problems with that. The phone holder itself is ok, but there are two things to consider. The first is that the holder is not especially secure, it tends to flop around a bit because the vent clip is not particularly strong and the feet are slippery - they would have been better if they had a non-slip coating. The second issue is that putting the phone in the holder and removing it again is clumsy and it is difficult to get a secure grip from the holder - for example, I have to remove the phone from the silicon protector case otherwise it isn't held securely by the side grips. Overall for the price it is ok, but I imagine that there are better, more secure units available for not much more money.

Useful bit of kit
This phone holder is really quite versatile. First impressions were not too favourable as I was struggling to find a place to mount it on the vents without the vents moving and taking the phone and holder with it. However I found that the spring loaded claw can be rotated to any angle by simply slackening off a screw and putting at the required angle. The only slight problem encountered was the thickness of the metal of the claw which can be a bit hard to get through the gaps in some air vent grills. However overall a very useful bit of kit which can be removed easily so that there is no evidence of a satnav being used in the car.

Just the job
The phone holder works well, grips the phone securely and easily rotates into portrait or landscape mode. The power connector is not obstructed (Wildfire S)and the phone is in a good position, easily in sight, much better than up on the screen, which is, strictly speaking illegal. Fitting is easy. Removal is a bit more tricky but it's one of those things where you just need to learn the trick. Lift it slightly before you (gently) pull and it slides easily off the vent. You'll soon get the hang of it.

I bought the Universal Phone Vent Holder for my Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and it works perfectly. It holds the phone securely, vertically or horizontally, and I can change the angle to face me in the drivers seat. No problems with the weight of the phone, either. For under £10, it seems a pretty ideal solution.

Not ideal for HTC phones
The phone holder itself is well made and is aesthetically pleasing, but unfortunately the clamp mechanism that secures the phone prevents me from plugging in the USB cable to charge it. Will affect phones that have a USB port on the side, particularly the HTC Sensation.

If having trouble fitting to vent FIESTA, MAZDA...
I bought this for my Fiesta (2006) which has the same style vents as those on the Mazda 6, which others have already said don't fit. However, the back of this holder has the same style fitting as many you can buy i.e. the 'stick vent mount holder' (search ebay or see link below). I had one of these already installed on my dash from my old phone (iphone), and simply switched the parts so it's now a hybrid of the two - I find the sticky ones excellent and they don't wobble at all. Now i've got the best of both! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CAR-DASH-AIR-STICKY-VENT-MOUNT-HOLDER-IPHONE-3G-3Gs-/260800509561?pt=UK_Holders_Mounts&hash=item3cb8ebf679#ht_762wt_1163

This is a fantastic value for money product. Although no instructions provided in the box, good old u-tube has it all. Great little video found on how to install. Very versatile little gadget and what's great? If you change your phone, you can still use this - perfect!!!

Top value. 100% recommend.
Excellent value. This was exactly what I wanted - a phone holder for the car which fitted easily into the air vents (I'm not a fan of the suction pads). Very competitive price - I did my research! - arrived promptly and fitted in minutes. Can have phone portrait or landscape depending on preference/use. Recommend this item without hesitation. Does exactly what it says it can. Can't say fairer than that.

Not very strong
Bought this product as the last vent holder was very good but only held 3GS so went for universal one. Sadly the legs that are ment to take the strain from the vent grip are weak and every time I put my phone in holder (gently) they open wider. Holder good idea but not robust enough

Phone holder
As a driver for a living I need my phone to be available and yet not a hindrance. The universal phone holder achieved this 100% from out of the box to completed installation took exactly 3 mins. The vent attachment is simple and sturdy and very effective. Delivery of this item was prompt exactly as promised. Mobile fun notified me at the time of despatch and my phone holder arrived the very next day.

Better than suckered to the windscreen
This is just what I needed as I don't like these things stuck to the windscreen, but really needed my phone in easy reach and view mainly to change track when listening to music and when using the GPS. The holder was quick and easy to fit, feels sturdy and well made with the inclusion of a metal clip and my two phones of differing size fit well within it. My only slight issue after using it for a while now is that I have noticed a small and sometimes annoying vibration coming from it when driving, where plastic meets plastic, but this I can live with. Atleast I know where the noise is coming from, unlike some others in my car! Very glad I got it.

Universal Phone Vent Holder
Bought as a gift to replace a cheaper one I borrowed from my girlfriend. More secure than cheaper alternatives, however, it does stand out from the dashboard quite far, so if you're planning on using it on the driver side vent, it may interfere with the windscreen wipers. All in all, a good purchase.

Good product overall
I found this phone holder to be great overall. The adjustment is great, I can angle the phone perfectley with 360 degrees of movement. The only thing I struggled with was fitting the holder to the vent, I have a focus and the vent spacing is tight so it was difficult to get the arm attachtment through and it is very difficult to remove it when not in use.

Reasonable for the money
Although it took a lot of faffing to get it just where I wanted it, it does work. Not as solid as the window-stuck holders but using the vents means that my phone can be closer, enabling me to see it better.

Perfect in every way (almost!)
The trouble with upgrading your phone is that you usually need loads of new kit too, and sometimes this can take the shine off because the bits and bobs let the side down. Not so with this boy. It was a bit tricky to slide together, but I used a blade to 'shave' the slot bit on the back until it all fitted together (took 5 mins) and apart from that, it is fantastic. Very sturdy and well made, spins round to go from portrait to landscape really well. Importantly, the bit that fits onto the vent is really firm and secure, but also easy to move from one vent to another (for when you're not driving for instance). I've been treating this manoeuvre with respect so as not to snap the vent bar.The whole thing is very secure in the car against occasional knocks I am really impressed - I honestly didn't think it'd be much cop at this price, but it's fab!

Very useful car holder
I had originally bought another car holder so that my HTC Desire fitted my '06 Honda Accord, but found that A) it was too bulky when fixed to the windscreen (obscuring the view of the road)and B) the only place I could position it so that it didn't obscure my view was to the right of my steering wheel. This meant the charger lead was too short. The Universal Phone Vent Holder for the HTC Desire gave me the solution I was after; no obscuring of the view of the road and it was in reach of the charging socket. Result!! What's more, the Universal Phone Vent Holder is discreet; holds on exceptionally well and will fit the majority of cars. If you have an HTC Desire and you're after a car holder, I simply say this: you have found it! Very happy with the goods and the service I received.

Bought for HTC Sensation
Very disappointed. Nothing wrong with the holder per se, it just shouldn't be advertised as suitable for the HTC Sensation without mentioning that you can't charge your phone whilst it's in the holder! The holder's arm / clamp partially covers the phone's charger socket - given this phone's dismal battery life, it's essential for me to be able to charge it whilst driving.

Does not work with HTC Sensation
Hi guys, this is a good product but be carefull if you have a HTC Sensation you cant charge and hold it in the cradle as the holding clips on left hand side block mini usb lead from being plugged into phone. But that said I was impressed with the build and how sturdy the unit was, just not any good for me.

Finally a mobile holder that does what it's suppos
After purchasing an iPhone 3GS, I wanted a car vent holder that securely held it in place. I had no idea how hard this would be. I tried three others before I found this one. They either wouldn't hold the phone in it's shell case, or they wobbled around because the vent clips were too loose. I was getting so frustrated but it was 4th time lucky. This one holds the phone securely as it has a tightening bolt you use once you have opened the sides to the correct width for your device. The vent clip mechanism is the most secure I have seen and doesn't rely on plastic clips that can distort. Because it is universal it will take my phone even in it's case. It has other features too that I haven't mentioned, but you can find these on the website. It is well made and I highly recommend it. Great product.

Excellent if you're prepared to modify it...
Very good little phone holder - my Samsung GS2 fits snugly into the cradle and the device clips nicely into the air vent of my Citroen C4. But there was one major problem: the cradle and the main body of the device are supposed to clip together, but the plastic connector on the cradle is too big. So unless like me you have a small file or craft knife to hand to widen the receiving aperture you simply won't be able to use this product. A great product let down by an unfortunate design oversight.

Does the job well
Fits well to the centre vents of my BMW 3 series giving a good viewing angle & keeping the phone cool without snaging any controls. A bit flimsy and delicate to assemble but once in place it held my HTC Sensation firmly. Down-side, at least with the Sensation, is the clamp covers the USB port for charging but this can be worked around by simply sliding the phone up higher in the holder then pushing in the charging plug. Looks a bit ungainly but nevertheless still holds firm. Good value for money.

Ok, not great.
It works and it wasn't expensive so it's not bad. The problem for me is the little pads on the base of the support legs are too slippery and slide too much on the dash when going around a corner. On the plus side adjustment is excellent and it holds the phone very well.

Top draw, just the ticket
Not being one for clutter in a car, I have always put off having such holders in a vehicle, this one however is clean, tidy and adaptable it would seem for any vehicle. Simple to install, quick to move from vehicle to vehicle and when the phone is docked in it, solid and very usable. If this were a well known auction site I'd be putting A+++++ now..... ooops I have. Definatly recommend this to people equally as fussy as me.

Great product, just not for my Fiesta.
Well designed and well priced. A little fiddly to fit but very secure once done. Sadly this doesn't work with my '08 onwards Ford Fiesta as there isn't anywhere to put it where the phone doesn't get in the way of the controls on the steering wheel. A real shame as I really like this product. You have to be careful which vents you try and attach it to as well, because the circular ones on the Fiesta are too deep for the hook to properly attach to.

I wanted a phone holder that wasn't expensive but still kept the phone secure, ideally not have to take the skin off and be able to charge it from a lead I had already in the car. My only concern was it going to fit the air vent of my Ford Galaxy. It did and also met all my other requirements. So this device gets full marks from me.

Perfect for Desire S owners!
For anyone who has a Desire S, or a phone with it’s charging point on the sides, look at getting this one. My existing holder was the windscreen suction cup type, which was OK for my old Desire, but couldn’t charge my Desire S up as it covered the charging point. Another advantage of this holder is that the Desire S is prone to overheating and re-starting if you are using Google Navigation on a hot day, made worse if you have it in the direct sunlight on your windscreen. Now that is clipped to an air vent it is out of the greenhouse effect, and I can turn the cool blower to keep air wafting over it. It is designed so that most of the weight of your phone is cantilevered onto those bottom legs, not entirely off your flimsy vent grills like some others too. It took me 2 minutes to fit it (to my 2004 Seat Leon) and for the price I am very pleased at how well it does. Once again Mobilefun setting the bar for delivery times. Was fitting it less than 24 hours after ordering it.

Good bit of kit
Well made bit of kit to secure my HTC desire firmly to the dash of my Mazda 6 (new shape, centre vents not like old shape but of the traditional style) used it for a month now and not looked back. Love the universal positioning, love the easy fit spring system, love the soft feet that dont mark the dashboard, the image shows the unit upside down which may confuse buyers, looks neat too.
