What Are PopSockets? PopSockets are expanding grips and stands that attach to most phones, tablets, and cases. Add a single PopSocket, or a pair of PopSockets, to the back of almost any mobile device to transform its capabilities. PopSockets "pop" whenever you need a grip, a stand, an earbud-management system, or just something to play with. Remove your PopSocket by pulling slowly on the base; you can reposition and reattach time and time again. You'll always have the exact grip or stand you need. PopSockets not only make terrific phone grips and phone stands, they also make holding tablets and e-readers more comfortable and secure. Whether you place PopSockets on your Nintendo 3DS for gaming, your GoPro for a supplemental grip in the water, or on your bedroom mirror to hang jewelry, the possibilities are endless. If you attach two PopSockets to your device you now have a convenient earbud-management system. Simply wrap the cord around the two PopSockets, and voila! No more tangly mess to deal with. Never Lose Grip on Your Phone or Tablet Again! Click "Add to Cart" now to get your PopSocket expanding grip and stand.

More handy than you might think!
By Susan J
Cool knob that sticks very tightly to your phone or case. Comes in a variey of designs. One of the semi-hidden features is that the socket pulls out "twice": one tug pulls it out halfway, and a second tug expands it all the way. I find that for holding it, the double pull (full expansion) is the most comfortable, so I wondered why they built in the single pull. Then I discovered that this configuration allows you to pull the knob out all the way, and then fold one side back to easily prop up the phone! (see attached image). The adhesive seems very sturdy and I am not concerned that it will come off before I take it off.

Very handy, I'm loving it.
By Amazon customer
This is an original PopSockets, inscribed as such inside the lower base. I removed it easily enough from my iPhone 6 when I upgraded to the 7 and had no problem with repositioning it. I put it flat in the middle of the back so it can be used as a stand for watching video. Some have indicated it's easier to text with it a little lower closer to the keyboard but then it won't work as a stand. I can text with it positioned in the center of the back.
My fave feature of this is the grip on the phone. With two fingers (as pictured) under the knob, it is securely in your hand. There are 3 positions for it. 1) press it all the way down when not in use like to put in pocket or purse.
2) I personally don't use the second option, which brings it up a notch, as I don't find a need for it.
3) this option is fully extended for use as a stand, or to position your fingers under the knob for a selfie, or just for reading texts or mail without dropping your phone. I ordered the multi color one as I felt it would be easy to spot in my handbag. It's fine.
I've only been using this a short time and will update my review if necessary, but so far I am satisfied with this purchase. Would be a great gift idea for someone who is always dropping their phone and takes lots of selfies. What to get mom for Mother's Day, or that graduate? ... consider this.

MY HAND DIDN'T GET TIRED FROM TRYING TO BALANCE,TYPE OR TEXT MY PHONE.....
