5This makes my life better
By Susie
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!

3Pretty 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.

5Works great! Love it!!
By Simone Laffin
This product works great on my iPhone 6s using an Otterbox Defender case. I placed the magnet in between the soft outter case and the hard inner shell, and it holds perfectly well to the magnet.
I took the advice of another reviewer and made sure I placed the clip on an air vent that could be closed so the phone won't get too hot from the heater or too cold from the a/c blowing directly on it. I currently have it in a 1997 Toyota Camry and it fit the vents very well. Take note: there are two "fits" or "sizes" that you can use to attach this to your air vent: turn it one way and it is looser, use the other side and it fits more tightly.

Finally, here's something I did not think about using this device for: if you bring the magnet with you (out of your car when you are not driving or just get a second one), you can use the magnet as a landscape prop up (like an easel) for your phone!
