Great little gadget
Highly recommended for the price. Very useful to have in your car and looks quality too.
No messing
This phone holder is as easy a set up as you would want. Push onto air vent, place phone in same. No fiddling or messing about to set this up. Easily removed and carried in pocket if needed in another car
Great product
Really happy with the holder, does the job fine and looks good
Read the reviews it does exactly what it says on the tin!
Journeyed for two hours, held phone firmly in place, even on uneven roads.
This is way over priced and where is the LEATHER I can't seem to find it !!
That this product is made off Plastic and not LEATHER !! Sorry I feel ripped off .
Does the Job
Purchased to hold iphone 8 secure in place, does the job and on problems to report!
From ordering to delivery .... excellent
Product ... brilliant
sturdy enough
it fits nice and snug onto my Focus C-Max vent grill and the spring mechanism holds an iPhone XR firmly without a threat of marking the case. It has a nice look and feel of quality - all in all I'm very pleased with it
Love this little gadget
Easy to use, love that it can be so easily swiveled between portrait or landscape style and best of all ... it stays in place, unlike the crappy magnet ones where your phone falls out over every bump. Highly recommend
Quality item
Fits in vents securely and very adjustable in my 3series BMW.

Actually holds my tomtom sat nav if required. BMW sat nav as good as it is does not have speed camera alerts.
Phone Holder
Grips the phone really well without being over tight. Easy to setup and use, doesn't damage vents, spins to horizontal, very well made.
We have heavy fines and demerit points for driving with mobile in use in Australia - you need to have it in a cradle such as this. So much safer so its a great investment. Its very well made and looks nicer than cheaper units
Good buy
I spent a long time looking for a decent, secure dashboard phone holder that would fit an iPhone 6 plus AND a Galaxy Note 8. This is it. Safe and secure. Recommended!
Neat, compact and does the job perfectly.
Looks cool and unobtrusive. Holds a phone really securely (which is important) and swivels from portrait to landscape very easily.
This is perfect. It is about 2 inches in width and very unobtrusive.
Quality product appropriate for my cars
This is my second ‘dash crab’ purchased after receipt of 1st one on the basis that the quality suited both of my cars and was able to handle my iPhone securely even with the full leather cover fitted.
As described, functions well!
Very good
Good product
Good product, not super, looks great but rather small and weak, on the ppicture they used a small phone, so it looks bigger
Does exactly what it says it does. Looks neat and tidy in car vent.
I have a Nokia 3310 mobile phone which fits perfectly
I have a Nokia 3310 mobile phone which fits perfectly. The mount blends with the interior; looks part of the car.
Bit disappointed
Bought this a few weeks back at full price and it isn't strong enough to hold my phone (Samsung Galaxy A7) so I'm not very satisfied. If I go over a speed hump my phone the mount falls out of my air vent taking my phone with it.
Sleek phone holder
It's a neat phone holder but the leather doesn't feel that premium.
Just the job
This is the second one I've purchased for our 2 cars. Previous suction based eventually fail. These work great on both of our cars (CRV & Q7) and look the part too.
Well Made, Looks Good.
A well made good looking device.
Unfortunately my central vent points downwards when the phone is fitted causing the phone to lean forward. There is however, enough adjustment on the rear bracket to compensate for this.
Does slide from side to side during insertion and removal of the phone, but this is a minor issue
Well Made but depends on the type of vent you have.
Looks good and is a well made holder. Unfortunately my main central vent points downwards after installing the phone causing it to lean forward. However there is enough adjustment on the rear bracket to compensate for this.
Can slide from side to side on insertion and removal but this is a minor issue.
It's OK
It's OK - does the job well but becomes dislodged from the vents too easily. If you use this daily, don't expect to get your phone in and out quick as it requires you to constantly set it back into place on the vents.
Compact, with nice and smooth material. Adjustable for many tipes of phones.
Good Product
Great little product for connecting phone to air vent in car. Much better than sticking it to a wind screen.
It looks classy and is a good product.
It looks metallic but is pure 100% plastic. So quality and satisfaction will only be known over the longer term.
Not too shabby actually
Fits both my car and phone perfectly and is really out of the way on the vent unlike some of the other holders you can buy here. Lacks a little featue for angling it but I like it alot.
PS Not real leather just looks like leather but thumbs up from me.
Good product
Nice design and simple to use
Product Excellent
the product was delivered in quick time & is installed & is being used well
Had the window sucker before and it wasn't for me. Purchased this and it is brilliant holds the phone (samsung S7)perfect fits portrait way only.
Works great, looks good
Great. Sits in vent perfectly and holds phone securely. Great for use when different phone models will be used in the holder
Simple compact and effective
Works well on the vents of my BMW 3 series.
Gives good firm grip on my iPhone 7 and is easily adjusted just what l wanted.
Works as advertised
Dash Crab MONO Premium Leather Car Vent Mount works as advertised. It adheres to the slat of the vent firmly, and the claws grab the phone well.
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.
Not up to the job
This holder does not have the strength to hold a smartphone. It flops forward - unlike a different version I bought previously. For me, unfortunately, this has been a waste of money

Hi Roy

Sorry to hear you are not happy with this item. This is very strange, can you please contact our Customer Services team so we can look into this for you.
Great product
I bought it for my s8plus as I needed a holder for a large phone. Feefs percectly with a cover.Small very good looking and very sturdy car holder. I tried few but this one is definitely the best. I definitely recommend this product.
Excellent - as it looks!
This was a lovely little surprise, and looks better then I was expecting and fits really well in car and with phone. It took a little longer to arrive then I was expecting from day of dispatch but the product more than made up for it. I would certainly recommend.
Good product
Handy and easy to use. Have to push it in firmly to ensure a snug hold...sometimes works its way loose but happy with product. Great for access to maps on smartphone,
Quality and effective
I went for the cheap postage, but delivery time wasn't too bad. Definitely the most fuss-free dashboard mount I've used. The jaw spring is just right to hold the phone securely and still be easy to take in and out. The grooved rubber that attaches to the vent seems very solid as well - easy to mount and no movement afterwards. Haven't played with the ball-swivel much yet but it also seems good - quite stiff but not hard to adjust.
Very happy!
Great unit
It's a solid holder. The s8+ is a heavy device especially with the otterbox defender case on it. I have to position it just right or it will tip forward but it does do what it is designed to do. The rotational adjust is great to go horizontal.
It was exactly what I was looking for
This car mobile phone holder was recommended for my Samsung Galaxy S4 and it's great. It was exactly what I was looking for and when it was delivered I was not disappointed. It is sturdy stylish yet discreet. Fits like a glove so near of it dropping out.
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.
Good buy
Good buy ! Looks good and does the job.

I would recommend this item !
Fantastic air vent phone holder
I was looking for an air vent holder for my iPhone 6 to go in my Audi Q5 (2012). Having had air vent holder in the past I wasn't expecting much but liked the look of Dash Crab Mono. The first thing I noticed upon opening was the quality of the build/finish, it looked fantastic. As soon as I fitted it into my car I knew I'd made the right choice. It fits perfectly into the vent and hold the phone very securely both vertically and horizontally without any unwanted movement. It also looks great without a phone in the cradle as has a very high quality finish. I would highly recommend this product.
A great looking phone holder that securely holds a iPhone 7 plus to the vents on my car, I've tried loads of others but this is by far the best I've used
Product as described :-)
This product useful and easy to use with various phones
This product useful and easy to use with various phones. Had used suction phone holders in the past... This is much better and less obtrusive. Would recommend.
Generally pleased
Similar to many on the market but compliments an interior of a nice car. The genuine leather claim is a nonsense but it doesn't really matter too much. Its all about the functionality which appears to be good......lets hope it lasts for a while. I could have found a cheaper one for sure, but no complaints with this.
It came
It grips, it grabs, it does the job!

It grips to the air vent, it holds the phone very nicely.

I would recommend this product.
Excellent Product well worth the spend
Excellent product am ordering another 2
Simple and effective
This is perfect product to securely park your phone where you can see it without damaging your dashboard. You can also easily move it around for example from the driver side to the passenger side, or for right or left-handed access.
It looks smart and does the job.
Love it. Works perfectly
Very good device
A very nice looking and well made phone holder. Holds my Smart Ultra 7 even with the folio case on and the spring loaded clamp does not allow the phone to slip.
Overall a very good purchase.
Just the job
Not having had a phone holder before, I cannot compare it to others, but I chose carefully from the many available, read the reviews and decided on this Dash Crab. It arrived very quickly and is made very well and looks nice. The actual grips widen smoothly to accept phones of various widths (mine is a Vodafone Smart Ultra 7) and hold it very firmly.
Very happy with this, useful, smart and does the job.
i'm impressed
finally, a vent mount which isn't drivel!!!!
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!!
Nice & easy to use.
Well designed - holds my iPhone 7Plus on the air vent, so it's taking a fair amount of weight, and I like how I can adjust where on the body of the phone it will be held. Only used it today but happy so far, and it's quite unobtrusive.
Love it.
It has a great look, and the fact that it allows me to pivot my iPhone for easier viewing is a real plus. Glad I got it!
I should have bought this one first!
I have bought a couple of phone holders in the past and they all worked well initially but then you would find you went over a bump and the phone fell from the mount. I have a feeling this holder is far superior to the others. For a start it holds the phone with a solid spring clip and not only that it looks really elegant and unobtrusive. It would be suitable for any smartphone and it will fit any air vent. Really simple to remove if you wish to use it as a simple phone stand. Its simplicity itself to adjust the phone orientation, its a simple ball joint. I have no hesitation in recommending this product - I just wish I had bought it before myself!
Awesome :)
Would buy from here again
Great Product
I was a bit unsure if the holder would be able to carry my Iphone 6s Plus but I've had no issues at all. Along bumpy roads and long trips the phone stays completely stable and allows a great experience for GPS and audio during car travels.
Should have bought this one first!
This is such a good piece of kit and it looks really elegant! Best of all it does the job perfectly so I have no reservation in recommending that anyone looking for a phone mount opts for this - you won't be disappointed. As usual perfect delivery from Mobile Fun well before the scheduled arrival - thank you.
Great Product
This met all my expectations.. Excellent fit to my Audi air vent, holds my iPhone and iPad in just the right position, it's appearance matches the quality of my interior, and is excellent value for money.
Bought this as wasn't happy with the suction holder falling off the windscreen. Since buying this holder I have been nothing but delighted with the product.
It works
It does what it says it will do. Cannot ask for more than that.
Quality phone holder.
I don't normally use vent holders. Past experience has taught me that they tend to damaged the vent. However this holder has a rubber vent grip so no damage occurs. It's also the first phone holder I've seen which combines a real chrome and leather finish. I drive a nice car with a good trim levels, and this holder is perfect. It looks like it belongs there. It's so easy to use, it's literally a one handed operation to place or remove you phone.
This item works as advertised. No problems with it.
The dash crab vent mount is marvelous it is unobtrusive and smart looking
The dash crab vent mount is marvelous it is unobtrusive and smart looking when not in use and holds my sat navigation perfectly and firmly. It's so good I got one for my daughter who uses it to hold either her mobile phone or sat navigation unit. I
Great little I phone holder
Great little I phone holder holds phone or iPod firmly and attaches to vents easily ,looks really good to .the simple things are the best
I wanted something that would look good and better than just a cheap plastic phone holder. The leather look/chrome matches the finish of the car interior. Really happy with how it works and have already recommended it to someone else
This item does just about any phone fit perfectly over the vent fin
This item does just about any phone fit perfectly over the vent fin and holds the phone horizontally or vertically with no problem . 10/10
Good value, works well and looks ok too
I bought this cos it was cheap simple and small. It has successfully held iPhone 5, 6 and 6+ as well as my Huawei p9 lite in VW polo, EOS and Citroen C5 cactus. Installs in a flash, grip seems plenty good enough both in terms of grip on the vent and on the phone. Feels sturdier than a similar holder I bought from Halfords. Not had it long but so far so good and I have no worries, so I bought a 2nd one.
Given it a 4 only because I haven't had it long enough to say 5.
dash crab mono premuim leather car vent mount - black
this item was perfect for the phone did what it was purchased for and fitted without any trouble at all .
This is a nifty little accessories and not like the big bulk holder I had before. It's great as it has a nice swivel aspect to it, the phone (S7) is held firmly in place. I was worried this wouldn't be at all what I wanted but it's discreet on the dash, holds firm and swivels.
Broke after 1 use. Using this with an Xperia Z2 the internal mechanism and spring broke after 1 use.

I recently bought a mobile phone dash crab from mobile fun and the service was fantastic the product was here in a couple of days and i was so pleased with the quality of product. I would most certainly buy from them again
Product is great. Holds my phone securely and the customer help was super fast in answering any questions! !!!!
I bought a grab phone holder for my car and its fantastic really strong keeps the phone securely in place. I would most definitly use moblie fun again as the service was brillant the product was delivered really quickley. I woold recommend this company to family and friends
Thank you
Mr m hale
Quite satisfied
See above
Fantastic device
Simple device - simply brilliant! It's small, effective and looks stylish too. Easy to use and and unobtrusive. Highly recommend.
Does the Job
Works well. Can get phone in with one hand. Also holds my small gps. Has come off the vent once or twice . Will see how it lasts, but it is compact , nice to look at, simple ----no visible springs etc. A bit prices for what it is but will be worth it if it lasts.
So far it seems good. It is neat. It stays well on the air fins. Holds the phone well. I wonder will it last the test of time though...hopefully it will. Its a little pricey for what it is but it is very tidy and not at all ugly. Jury is out for a few months though!
Cheap but not really adjustable
I liked the look of the mount because you didn't have to fix it to your windscreen and it seemed easily adjustable. The issue is that because it fixes to the air con vents the weight of the phone pulls the vents down, meaning the phone generally tilts down.
I like the fact that you can spin the phone horizontal without have to take the mount off the vents though.
Very Good
This iPhone holder for the car is very effective and aesthetically very nice as it is used in my SL500 Mercedes. My iPhone also has a leather wrap-around cover that I can also keep on the phone and it is still held securely in the holder. I have no hesitation in recommending this mobile phone holder for the car.
It works exactly as advertised
Having recently been using a number of different vehicles during the course of my work and needing to use my phone for navigation at the end of my journeys I was finding it increasingly difficult to have the phone in a viewable position. This item has been a godsend. It works exactly as advertised. Is small and easy to carry. I just wonder why I did not get one sooner.
Great Quality phone holder for the car
Sturdy leather and polished chrome phone holder that fits easily into your car vent. The position then is great for you to see. Especially when I am using my Waze. It works perfectly and I am delighted that I can see it lasting for a very long time. I bought a cheaper one a while ago and it's already in the bin!!! So I'm delighted that I will not have to replace this one anytime soon.
Good product
It works exactly as advertised fit both of the cars I use regularly
i have hade several items from mobile fun, all withoutt exception have been "as described" and done the job they were deesigned and built for.
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.
Very Good
Very good grips solidly & so easy to slip your mobile into it great
Dashboard phone mount
Great little piece of kit. Easy to fit and hold phone nice and firm. Also handy as a desk mount for phone.
Not quite good enough.
Neat in appearance but .... the 360 degree ball joint is very stiff.
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.
Looks and works Great!
How Others like it!
I've bought many phone holders for my car and they all ended up in the bin even as early as the next day after purchasing.
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.
Excellent product.
A powerful little grabber
This is a little gem as I was abit dubious about wether
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
Nice holder
Much smaller than I thought it would be, this little holder is sturdy and holds my Galaxy Note 5 very steady. The holder attaches snugly to the ventilation ribs and holds my phone in a position that allows me to see the display from my car apps.
discreet and elegant
Item is small, discreet and elegant. Quality is good. Fits to vent.
Smart and functional, value for money.
