  • I like the concept of this product, and it worked well until the ball fell off each time.

Reviews around car (4.34 of 5)

  • And even better, you don't have to fiddle with unhooking your phone from an annoying car mount and risking your safety, or anyone else's on the road
  • This is the best car accessory for a phone on the market and worth the price
  • Probably the best car mount you can get if you want a very slim look, and not all bulky like most car mounts especially if you have a large phone
  • These things are absolutely awesome - the best car mount hands down.

Reviews around work (4.31 of 5)

  • It prob works well with smaller, lighter uncased phones.
  • This works great for holding your phone while driving, especially if you don't have a GPS in your car
  • This worked OK for about a week, even though we got it in winter, and he complained the vents with the heat on made his phone even hotter, and that isn't good for your battery.
  • I had the steely ball and magnet from no choice on my phone and the dashboard mount in my car and has worked great for the last two years
  • But I have some stickier stick that is working great even on the slightly rough surface

Reviews around advertise (4.27 of 5)

  • n’t regret it.
  • Item works as advertised, the only issue is if you have a larger phone (Note 4, IPhone 6s,etc) the phone will move around on the ball end
  • I should add that the adhesive comes off completely clean just as advertised.
  • Does not work as advertised.
  • and now that I’m missing a

Reviews around idea (4.19 of 5)

  • Heard about this product through a friend and thought it was a great idea.
  • I love the idea and the small size, but it falls with the weight of my mid-sized iPhone X in a case
  • This was not preferred, because I didnt like the idea of having to use a glue on the dash, but it was either that or return it, so once that was done, and it's been in use a few
  • It's a decent idea, but it just interferes with some of the most innovative features of my device.
  • Looks cool, looks like a great idea, but terrible functionality

Reviews around design (4.15 of 5)

  • The design make the phone easy to move when needed, but it stays exactly where you place it otherwise
  • Great product nice design functions almost flawless right until the adhesive de laminates from device
  • Vent mount is a great design and works on many rental cars
  • Its design is incredibly simple and it is way more effective than the huge bulky gripper design
  • Looks cool, low profile design, holds my phone securely.

Reviews around thing (4.15 of 5)

  • The only thing I would say is the vent clips don’t work as well with vertical vent directionals
  • only thing i dont like is that my phone will not lay flat any more and wobbles on the table
  • Only negative thing is the magnetic on the back of the phone
  • The best thing right off is you can move your phone at will to get it out of the sun glare or in different angles to view things and it will stay in that position.
  • I read a lot of reviews on this product but they all lacked one thing

Reviews around surface (3.97 of 5)

  • I attached it to a clean, flat, smooth surface and both adhesive circles that came in the box failed to stick
  • Is a decent product but has to be mounted on a smooth surface
  • I haven't tried scuffing the surface to give it more grip
  • I followed directions and cleaned the surface prior to installation, however, the adhesive would not stick at all.
  • If you try to mount it on a vertical smooth plastic surface it will not support a phone like the gs7 edge

Reviews around holder (3.97 of 5)

  • Best Car Phone Holder 100% Universal Magnetic Dashboard Mount Kit by Wuteku
  • Magnets just work, they don't need a clamp or a vent holder
  • This is the best phone holder I've ever had for my phone
  • It's small and out of the way unlike the bulky bracket holders, and most of all, IT WORKS AS ADVERTISED!!!!
  • The holder fell off my dashboard immediately and when I tried to contact the company for more adhesive strips I never heard back from them

Reviews around phone (2.96 of 5)

  • This is the best phone holder I've ever had for my phone
  • but you lose the phone magnet (which interfered with the NFC on my device).
  • If you just twist the phone to the side it works just fine.
  • The magnet doesn't work at all, my phone will fall off with the slightest tap

Reviews around terrain (2.23 of 5)

  • We’ve tested both and mine doesn’t magnetize the things nearly as well as his
  • I placed the Steelie near the dashboard on my old Jeep Wrangler, which I commonly use to rough, bumpy terrain
  • I was a little worried that my phone would come loose and drop to the floor when driving through rough terrain or bad roads
  • Holds very securely and won't fall off while going over bumpy terrain.
  • The only thing I would add is a little rubber pad on the part that touches the back of the phone but it still works as it should with the way it is

Reviews around ball (2.20 of 5)

  • 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
  • The remedy it so use a tissue and some rubbing alcohol to clean both the gasket and also the steel ball.
  • Vent ball mount was heavy that would tilt the vent down and the phone as well most of the time
  • Now, the ball comes off the console and my phone falls all the time
  • You can put the ball back on and as it cools it sticks itself back in

Reviews around metal object (2.18 of 5)

  • The only thing I would add is a little rubber pad on the part that touches the back of the phone but it still works as it should with the way it is
  • He likes that he can sometimes stick his phone to metal objects (like cabinets or doors) for handsfree convenience while working.
  • We’ve tested both and mine doesn’t magnetize the things nearly as well as his
  • I have also found the magnet handy in my office as I can keep the phone upright on various metal objects around my office, which is an unexpected benefit
  • Not only is it convenient to stick to the ball once mounted on the dash board but also will securely hold to any metal object.

Reviews around strip (1.95 of 5)

  • One positive I will say, is that the adhesive used on both parts is very good
  • I Love the mount but had to remove it because all my credit card magnetic strips were destroyed.
  • The magnet that is stuck to the phone will erase any credit card magnetic strips if you carry them in the same pocket
  • Well the 3m strip wasn’t strong enough and it fell off the first day I had it
  • but......do not place your hotel keys, credit cards, or any other important magnetic strip near the magnet

Reviews around stuff (1.85 of 5)

  • Will be keeping the smaller magnet and getting some more sticky stuff to use for my phone.
  • I replaced the sticky stuff ( it came with replacement) and tried again
  • Love it, just switching it between cases wears out the sticky stuff on the back, but we find extras pads of those at home depot.

Reviews around card (1.77 of 5)

  • Works great but beware of the magnet ... don't put a credit card next to it (I ruined a card by placing it in my pocket with the phone; keep cards and phone in different pockets).
  • The strong magnets in the Steelie mount on the back of the phone will erase your credit/debit cards if they come close to the magnet.
  • Is there a wallet or credit card case designed to protect credit cards from magnets?
  • 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
  • Eventually I put some thin steel sheeting inside her wallet to protect the cards (was paper thin), and no more problems

Reviews around air vent (1.73 of 5)

  • We’ve tested both and mine doesn’t magnetize the things nearly as well as his
  • The clip, it has no ridges to hold onto the air vent so it falls out.2
  • So since then I bought the one that clips onto your air vent and that one works well.
  • I had a phone holder that clipped to the air vent but it seems to always block the air
  • It securely clips on my air vent and yet it is flexible enough to adjust to any position of placement!!

Reviews around road (1.71 of 5)

  • Holds phone firmly and phone does not drop even if you're hiding extremely bumpy road
  • I commute over 100 miles/day, over some pretty torn up roads, and my phone (Samsung Galaxy S6) does not shift at all
  • It doesn't fall off the ball, but within a minute or less of driving on a regular smooth road, the phone droops down and angles away from where I had it until the bottom of the phone touches the dash and it can't droop any lower
  • I drove the car on bumpy roads, the phone did not fall or shifted
  • The phone tilted further down every few seconds while driving along smooth roads, and abruptly tilted down when I hit a bump

Reviews around clip (1.56 of 5)

  • Would have preferred the vent clip but to lazy to return used the ball for cobb
  • The clip to the vent system does not provide enough tension to stay on.
  • Definitely better that the phone mounts that clip on to your air conditioner vents
  • This little clip is awesome and as an AV Tech, I can place my phone on racks or anything magnetic, it's sparked a lot of fun conversations
  • The clip to the vent doesn't hold vertical vents hard enough

  • It doesn't work with the Galaxy Note 5, it distorts the screen so the stylus doesn't work at all.
