Gives good firm grip on my iPhone 7 and is easily adjusted just what l wanted.
Bear in mind that it will grab the phone only in the 'portrait' orientation. It does not separate far enough for the phone to be mounted sideways.
Everyone who comes in my car including my brother and sons who have borrowed it says they love it and ask me where I brought it.
I don't recall seeing one negative review before I brought it and this helped when choosing this one.
This was not my first purchase with mobile fun and it certainly won't be the last.
I would recommend this item !
It grips to the air vent, it holds the phone very nicely.
I would recommend this product.
It looks smart and does the job.
Overall a very good purchase.
Very happy with this, useful, smart and does the job.
i have bought vent mounts in the past and they have been absolute rubbish and a complete waste of money. either because they didn't stay attached to the vent for long, or they fell off while holding a phone. which kind of defeats the object of the mount?
i was epileptic of this mount in the first place, and didn't hold much hope. it was cheap, so i would bin it, if it was like the previous.
well..i've been using it for about a month now. the rubber crab on the back has been designed to firmly grip the air vent, so much so, i have to wiggle the mount onto the air-vent slat, which is not a bad thing!
the built quality of the mount itself is solid. the spring retention is firm but not ridiculously tight. the rubber prongs hold onto the phone securely over potholes and speed bumps.
i don't even bother removing the mount from the air-vent, when i park the car because it is un-obtrusive and blends into the dash surroundings. unlike windscreen suction cup mounts. my last phone mount used the CD slot, it did it's job but was cumbersome and you couldn't really leave it in place, because it was so obvious what it was used for when parking the car.
p.s. i've been a customer here for many years...need i say more!!
Given it a 4 only because I haven't had it long enough to say 5.

I like the fact that you can spin the phone horizontal without have to take the mount off the vents though.
I cannot fault any item.
all arrive on time, but you get the service you have to pay for it,
there is a comprehensive list of items to fit all makes/types and sizes of fone or mobile computer.
The weight of the phone drags the vent potion down which forces you to experiment to find the best position to view it.
The clip that fits onto the vent could do with being longer as it sometimes springs of when putting the phone in the clamp.
A good idea but needs subtle improvements.
This one was easy to fit and as soon as I fitted it I knew it was secure.
Best buy, easy and quick to fit and really does hold the phone in place.
It was strong enough to hold a phone like some other
I have tried in the past
But I need not have worried as it holds my phone with
Out any problems and looks good to boot and the leather is a nice touch
It arrived very quickly and was well priced customer service is excellent
The mount is small but can expand to accommodate large phones. My Galaxy S5 fits with ease.
The vent mounting system is very secure and sturdy, I've been over some rough terrain and the mount hasn't moved from the vent in any way.
The clamping system for the phone is quite secure, my phone hasn't fallen out of the mount at any point.
The ball joint that allows the mount to swivel is nice and strong so my phone doesn't droop down or swivel through bumpy rides in the car.
The mount puts my phone in a great location, just above the radio, and doesn't obscure my windscreen in any way.
And now for the negatives;
The way the vent mount system works means that the weight of my phone always pulls the vent louvres down, so for my phone to be at the correct viewing angle the vent pretty much has to be pointing straight down. I think this will largely depend on how wide the gap is between the louvres on car vents, and how stiff the car vents are.
The mount itself is made of a very cheap and low quality plastic, for the money you would expect something a little more "premium". The spring loaded arm that secures the phone in place has a lot of play in it, again not what you'd expect for the money. Also, the construction of the mount system for the phone is of very poor quality - essentially is it two bits of cheap plastic clipped together. My mount actually broke because the the two halves of the mount came apart when I was removing my phone and caused the spring to fire off into my car... I still haven't found it after 2 weeks. This wouldn't have happened if the mount had a higher quality construction, i.e. it was screwed together and not made of a low quality plastic!
I exchanged my mount for a new one (thanks Mobile Fun for the great service and quick turnaround!), and while the quality is still low, this one hasn't fallen apart - although I've been very careful when removing my phone from the mount, and the mount from the vent.
The crab mono does function well and fits my 2009 Honda Accord vent quite tightly.
The packaging probably cost more than the item to make.
Overall it looks good and does its job well. Which I guess is all that matters.
