Have you been looking for a good car mount? I have, searching for one that doesn’t take a few minutes to seat your phone in, or too difficult to take your phone out if you get a call. The Clingo car mount is simple and perfect for all of that.
The Clingo mount comes in 3 styles: Vent Mount, Hands Free Mount (suction cup for windows and such), and the Podium mount which lies on a desk. The three models all use the same method to attach to phones: a sticky surface which doesn’t leave a residue and never stops being sticky. All you have to do to attach a mobile phone of any kind is simply place it on the mount, and push. It sticks to the device without leaving any residue behind. If for any reason the pad gets dirty all you have to do is pop it off the mount, run it under water, and wipe with your finger to clean off (as advertised on the box).
The mount uses a ball and socket joint to connect the pad to the holder (vent, glass, podium) so you can adjust the phone to whichever angle or orientation best fits you and change it on the go. The device stays firmly on the pad and is removed by placing one hand on the pad, and another on the device and gently pulling. The mount is easy to put together and install. The only real “down-side” to it is that the sticky surface must be kept clean in order to work the best; so it’s not a bad idea to take it inside once a week or so to wash it off.
• Well made
• Easy to install
• Works with any phone, iPod, and even held up my 10” tablet
• Easy to service, just rinse under water
The not So Good:
• There’s really nothing I can complain about, it’s a great product!
The three mounts are available in the DroidNerds accessories store ranging from $19 – $28, depending on the frame you get. Check them out here: Clingo Mounts on the Accessory store
