The mounts are all made out of hard plastic, and feature a ball-joint mechanism in order for the user to best position their smartphone according to their needs.

Usage

During our tests, the GRIP All-in-One definitely kept our smartphones secure while driving. There where no drops or rattling parts during our tests with the GRIP.

One thing we would like to note, however, is that while the GRIP includes different mounting styles, not all attachments will be guaranteed to work with all vehicles. For instance, the CD Slot mount would not work on a 2014 Ford Mustang Stereo System because the CD slot is too close to the shifter. While this definitely is not a deal breaker, it is something to keep in mind when buying and mounting this product.

As mentioned before, the GRIP features a ball-joint mechanism in order to make it easier for the phone to be used in a landscape and portrait orientations. The GRIP’s smartphone cradle includes a tightening screw in order to help maintain the smartphone’s desired orientation.

The GRIP’s other two mounting methods involve attaching either an adhesive suction cup or dash pad somewhere on the vehicle in order to hold your smartphone.

The suction arm mount is actually quite flexible. It can adjust in height via the side screw in order to improve visibility regardless of where it is mounted.

The adjustable arm mount can also become longer, if, needed, via the screw right underneath the arm.
