Good news, bad news.
By Lauren's Dad
I originally ordered the CD slot mount, but it didn't fit properly in my car. Exchange was easy and hassle-free. The vent-mount works well, but one of the gripping pads fell off and was lost after only a few uses. Coincidentally, I received an email from the maker asking for a review. I mentioned my problem, and they promptly responded with a request for a picture of the failed part so they could remedy the situation. I sent two photos and waited. And waited. After two weeks I sent a follow up inquiry. After several months I'm still waiting. The product seems well made otherwise, and usable despite the missing pad, but customer service was a disappointment.

Perfect Holder When You Don't Want Something Permanent
By Agent Squirrel
I already own the iOttie Easy One Touch 3 (V2.0) Car Mount Universal Phone Holder for iPhone 7 Plus 6s Plus SE Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge S6 Edge Note 7 5- Retail Packaging- Black and I love it. When I needed a holder that was a bit more portable, I didn't want something that would "suction" to the dash or window and went with a few cheap ones. The only issue was that I always needed two hands to take the phone out our put back. I was looking for something like my iOttie Easy One Touch 3. Well, turns out that iOttie makes exactly what I needed.
This is an awesome phone holder. It clips in to the vent super easily. It hasn't come off once after repeated uses in my spouses car. But when I wanted to remove it recently to use in a rental car, it was easy to remove.
The phone goes in to the holder very easily. There is a button that my iPhone presses on when I put in the holder, This clamps the phone in. To remove, you press the two sides and it opens. Not the best way to explain it but that is the basics of it.
No matter how many bumps we have went over, this phone hasn't come out even once.
I love this holder. Already planning this as a holiday gift for a few friends who liked my phone holder but also didn't want something that was more permanent.

Generally good but with a fatal flaw.
I like the slim profile of this unit and it sticks to the windshield very well. As mentioned in other reviews, getting the phone out will result in movement of the articulating cradle, so you have to reposition it the next time you put the phone in the cradle. Not the end of the world. But the really irritating problem is the two jaws on the cradle retract using some form of plastic ratcheting mechanism that is subject to wear. So, now the jaws will not stay open for me to mount the phone. I have to hold the two jaws open (the spring is pretty firm) insert the phone and release the jaws. And there isn't much room to hold the jaws open while inserting the phone (they counted on that ratcheting mechanism to hold the jaws open for you). So mounting the phone inside the cradle is at least a 2-3 hand operation, hence my frustration. I got 5 months of service out of this before it broke, installing and removing the phone 2x's a day, 5-6 days a week. That's roughly 300 cycles and it's broken. I know we live in a disposable society, but I did expect something better from this product. I've written to the manufacturer to see about getting/purchasing a replacement cradle, however if they haven't redesigned the ratcheting mechanism, there is little point. I'll update if and when I get a response.
Update 8/2/13: I got a response from the manufacturer within hours of sending the email. All further communication has been same day, so I'll give them 5+ stars for customer service and communication! They asked me to tighten the screw on the back and see if that made a difference. It didn't, so they are sending me another cradle (or the whole unit, who knows) which should arrive tomorrow. Unfortunately there has been no design change, which doesn't inspire confidence that my experience with the replacement will be much different. So I took my existing cradle apart to see what the problem was. There was no visible wear inside the cradle that would cause the issue I'm having. Only two things could cause it, a loose screw (which I've already confirmed was not the issue) or a weak compression spring behind the center pin in the cradle (the one that pushes in when you mount the phone causing the jaws to release clamp onto the sides of the phone). It's not terribly easy to shim that spring so it puts a little more force on the plastic parts that would allow the jaws to lock open, so it really needs a stronger spring. Maybe this unit is a fluke, maybe they are all like this? I've also sourced a replacement spring to see if that will correct the issue. When it arrives I'll test it and if it works I'll post the details. The good news is each spring is less than $1, the bad news is the springs are only sold in packs of 6 and with shipping I think it would cost nearly $10. It's not available on Amazon's small parts store (aka Industrial and Scientific). Let's see what happens.
Update 8/5/13: The replacement unit arrived from the manufacturer, thank you for that. The replacement spring I ordered arrived as well. Works like a charm! I've passed that info on to the manufacturer. The spring is a compression spring, 0.50" length (uncompressed), 0.15" length (compressed), 0.24" outer diameter, 0.022" wire diameter. They are available at mcmaster carr's website (do a google search since amazon will strip out any links I put in). The part number on their website is 1986K63. With shipping the package of 6 springs was $10 or so. You'll also need a PH0 phillips screwdriver to remove the screw from the back of the cradle, and a knife or flat head screwdriver to pry the clamshell cradle apart to get to the insides. There are only 3 springs in there...two long ones that force the jaws closed, and one short one behind that center button in the cradle. You're replacing the short one behind that button.
