This makes my life better
One of the best purchase I have ever made. Seriously. I have an iPhone 6-Plus, and using both magnets (included in the shipment) between the case & the phone, it attaches onto the mount very firmly. The mount also attaches firmly into my air vent (2006 Nissan Xterra). No jiggling or slipping. I can touch, swipe, etc on my phone screen without any risk of the phone falling or sliding. Great product!

Great Product Worth Trying
By J. J. Olinchak
Few, if any, products are perfect for everyone. But if you are looking for a well-designed, sturdy, low-profile, and easy to install car vent mount for your phone, you should consider the WizGear mount. Although it was ideal for my vehicle your experience my differ. It all depends on the thickness and position of your car vents. Some reviewers have commented that the fit was loose. However, if you examine the gap between the prongs on the WizGear you will see that there are two sizes. One is a millimeter or so more narrow than the other. So, if you find the fitting on your vent is loose, simply rotate the WizGear 90 degrees and the smaller gap should grip tightly. This worked for my car. Some reviewers have commented that the WizGear pulls out of the vent when they go to remove their phone. Again, this may be solved by using the smaller gap prongs. Alternatively, sliding the phone off the WizGear rather than pulling it away should prevent the mount from pulling off the vent.
Finally, the metal plate that attaches to the back of your phone is almost paper thin. It can be attached directly to your phone or placed between your phone and its case. Either way it provides a strong, secure grip when placed on the WizGear. In addition, the WizGear metal plate provides a "universal fit" for any size phone. So, I'd recommend trying this product. If for some reason it doesn't work for you, Amazon has a great return policy.

Pretty good, but not great. Better than a lot of other solutions.
By Phillip D. Breske
I bought two of these, one for each car. One of them holds a little tighter to the A/C vent because the rubber-covered "fork" is slightly tighter (see photo). Luckily, one car has vent louvers that are a little thicker than the other, so it worked out. If you have only one car and the fork does't grab the louvers tight enough, you can try squeezing the forks in a vise (I suggest using some kind of plastic or rubber vise plates to avoid damaging the rubber on the magnet forks). I did this to get the looser one to hold better and it worked a little, but it was never as good as the one that came tighter from the factory. Neither of these holds strong enough to stay attached to the vent louver when the phone is pulled off unless you slide the phone to one side or the other—pulling straight off will usually pull the WizGear with it.
The magnet is actually four rare earth magnets (probably neodymium) in an array under the rubber cover (see photo). They are very strong magnets (DO NOT let your kids or animals play with these—swallowing could be deadly), but they aren't strong enough to hold an iPhone 4S in an OtterBox Defender case (the thickest case made by OtterBox) without a little slippage. In other words, a thick phone case may slide off the WizGear after driving a few miles, but it probably won't just fall to the floor of the car unless you're doing some serious off-roading. The metal plates that come with the WizGear are so thin that they fit inside any case with no outside bulging or fitment issues. Three plates are included—one round and two rectangular. The round plate and one of the rectangular plates have self-stick adhesive and can be used even without a case for your phone.
With the cover removed, you can see how the item is held together. There is a metal plate under the four magnets and that plate is held to the plastic base by a single screw through the center.
I believe someone else here has a problem with mounting on his car's A/C vent and he disassembled the WizGear and used the center screw to permanently attach it to his car's dash. I may do this in my Jeep as the center dash bezel comes off very easily and I could rig up a mount in a few minutes.
