Rated 5 out of 5 by from I log over 25, 000 miles a year on the road for work and I h I log over 25, 000 miles a year on the road for work and I have tried all kinds of solutions out there...The Steelie car mount system is by far the best one I found; It installs in minutes without a bunch of bulky parts that can break, it is super easy to use and see your phone from any angle, you have access to all your connections which is rare among these type of units. I thought the magnetic socket would add bulk but it really doesn't, in fact it adds a little spot for extra grip when you are holding the phone. I love mine so much I got another mount for my other car! Thanks for a truly innovative solution for securing a phone in the car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the ONLY car mount kit worth considering. Easy to in This is the ONLY car mount kit worth considering. Easy to install, rugged and elegant, it works like a charm.My car just didn't have a place to put a cell phone holder without blocking some needed control or button. The Steelie changed all that.I use an iPhone 5s, and the sleek lines are important to me. The small "button" I applied to the case is unobtrusive and lets me use the phone as I always have... only better! I can now just stick the phone to the fridge or any other ferrous surface and have it conveniently in view.This really is an outstanding product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a really great product. It fills a sector in auto mo This is a really great product. It fills a sector in auto modification that is not intrusive to the car owner, and it still relatively leaves a clean look. I actually own two and use it in conjunction with something I made that allows my to use any of my tablets or phones (or GPS's) with the system. It is a great product!My only real gripe would be the lack of magnet accessories one can by if one is lost. The button that goes on the back of the device can be lost and, it would be great to be able to buy some surplus!Thanks!Anthony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought the vent mount steelie so can change it from car to I bought the vent mount steelie so can change it from car to car. I used it recently when 4WD in desert on steep rollercoaster, washboard road fraught with quad drivers and free range steers. My parking lot card attached in plastic pouch on dash was shaken out of its holder but not my GPS/phone holding on via steelie vent attachment. Never lost my way! Great device!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a superbly designed, practical, innovative and attra This is a superbly designed, practical, innovative and attractive device for mounting a smartphone or tablet in your car. But be sure to READ THE INSTRUCTIONS MANUAL, which clearly spells out, albeit in the teeniest, tiniest print, all the do's and don'ts of attaching the two components of the kit. More importantly, the user is specifically warned NOT to put the magnet near credit cards, computer hard drives, pacemakers, floppy discs, cassette tapes, video tapes, CRT (picture tube) TVs, monitors and displays. It will wipe the magnetic strip on a credit card clean of its operative info and cause varying degrees of damage to the other items listed. Smartphones and tablets are not affected, however.Don't be fooled by the size of the small magnet that you attach to the back of your mobile device. It's powerful. My iPhone 6s, wearing a Mophie Juice Pack Plus is almost 10 oz, and is held so tightly into the metal ball, that it takes a tiny bit of effort to remove it from the mount, nothing extreme, but enough to let you know that when joined together, the attachment is very secure.Some people have commented that the magnet affects the compass and or the GPS capability of their device. I've had no such problem with either of those features. Not in iOS Maps, nor Google Maps, nor Waze nor the iOS Compass app.Interestingly, the small, shiny steel 1" diameter ball and mount, with my iPhone removed, has a simple, attractive elegance that makes all the claw-like/vise-grip phone and tablet car mounts look gross and obtrusive.My first thought, after installing the kit and realizing how well it works and looks, was "why didn't someone think of this before?" Then it occurred to me that they most likely did, and I'm just late to the table.Best idea, both in design and practicality, of any mobile device car mount I've used or researched.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The simplicity of this product, relative to it's functionali The simplicity of this product, relative to it's functionality and usefulness, is simply staggering. It's low profile isn't intrusive in the car, and the same can be said for the actual "steelie" that goes on the phone. I've tried a handful of car mount systems, and the rest are just underdeveloped versions of the steelie. Bonus feature: you can stick your phone to anything magnetic to hang out for a while. It's not curing any worldwide plagues or anything, but it's a nice added perk to having the Steelie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this easy versatile design...the rotating ball/magnet a Love this easy versatile design...the rotating ball/magnet allows you to pivot the device in any manner/angle..one drawback to having the magnet on the back is sometimes it will demagnetize the magnetic strip on a hotel room card or credit card..I have to be diligent to keep my phone in a seperate pocket. One last note I have a Samsung Note 2 phone that has a electronic stylus..with the magnet attached creates a perfect round "deadzone" where the phone doesn't show any sketch/scribble on the screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am absolutely blown away by the design, quality and concep I am absolutely blown away by the design, quality and concept of this entire Nite Ize phone mount system and additional accessories. In all the years I've owned mobile phones, I have never had a system that works this perfectly and is as versatile that it works everywhere you need it to! I will never even try another mounting system again because in Nite Ize I've found utter perfection in usability and the epitome of the modern design concept of form follows function, creating almost human like joints with magnets, steel balls and silicone cartilage in the highest possible quality and craftsmanship. I am hooked and will slowly but surely be adding to my growing collection of accessories! Innovation is a must in today's world, so Thank you for creating the ultimate system for my ultimate mobile phone!
