Ideal for vehicle windshields, the RAP-B-166-UN7U consists of a 3.3" diameter RAM Twist-Lock suction cup base, medium length double socket arm, and the popular spring-loaded RAM X-Grip phone holder. The RAM X-Grip features an 'X' design that expands and contracts to provide a perfect fit for your device even if it's in a case. Made of high-strength composite and stainless steel, this version of the RAM X-Grip fits phones ranging from 1.87" to 3.25" in width and keeps your device completely functional and accessible. RAM ball and socket technology allows for near-infinite adjustability to achieve the ideal viewing angle while also extending the life of your phone by providing shock and vibration damping. For outdoor applications, the RAM X-Grip includes a device tether that is recommended for added security and peace of mind.
I own several Ram Mount systems. This one is as good as any of the other ones, which are all quality products and well made. The gripe I have with this one, is that it is bulky, and overkill for holding my Galaxy S8 on my windshield. It is also difficult to position the phone in the holder, where the phone buttons won't be pushed by the holder. Bottom line is that I don't use this because of those two issues.
I have struggled with several car phone holders that just haven't worked out for me. This is the first one I have tried that used a suction mount on the window and I am extremely happy with the form and function on this holder. I was a little undecided about spending $50 on a phone holder. I'm generally not too tight with my spending but there are certain things I choose not to spend much money on, and this had been one of them. I'm glad I bought this one. It's built with some extreme durability and I have no doubt this thing will last me through several more phones. I have a Samsung Galaxy S8+ in an Otterbox Defender case. This mount will hold that but its a tight fit. If there is a larger option available for the X-Grip mount, I would suggest that if you have a larger phone in a bulky case.
Don't waste your time or money on anything other than one of these bad boys. There is a good reason they cost a little more than most on the market. I've had many, many poorly made mounts that lose suction, fail to grip, or just suck overall. The RAM mounts are sturdy as hell, suction like the Kraken itself, and will hold any size phone with any case on it, even phones with popsockets. Easy to use and you can even open and close it with one hand... Your phone will just fall to the floorboards. I cannot speak highly enough about how worth it these RAM mounts are.
The rubber grippers can be glued on (or not). One popped off as I was removing the phone and I had to order more rubber grippers. It came with a little tube of glue which I assumed was optional. But, better to use it apparently.
The best by far....had a few of the cheaper plastic with flex arms mounts and the ones with magnets. We have the worst roads in Louisiana so the magnet types dont take long for phone to fall off, and the flex arms are some what limited.....Ram mount has all the flex/adjustments. I can also take this in my boat for phone or buy other attachments for an action camera......one thing thats common with all mounts, phone will jump around with vehicle movements so i find that resting bottom of phone keeps it stable. Great mount!!
I've been searching for years for the best phone mount. I finally found it.
Great product, suction holds on my dash for a month, then it falls off, and have to put it back in place, no big deal.
This is my second one. I liked the first one so much for in the car that I bought a second one just for in the airplane. I use RAM products for everything I need to mount now. I have switched all of my GoPro gear to RAM, I use it in my car for my phone, and in my airplane for my iPad, phone and GPS. Great solid products. The suction mount makes a very secure connection that I'd compare to any other brand out there. It will stay put on glass almost indefinitely, and seems to work just as well on even poorly painted surfaces. I trust it to hold a GoPro on a moving airplane wing even, but with a tethered back up just in case.
RAM mounts are always superb quality products plus the ball head system is awesome to use. I can use the set up to use it with my Go Pro adapter as well. All one has to do is, get the Go Pro 1" ball head adapter and you have 2 uses of this great product.
Base stays put I use it on my kayak, in my truck. on my street bike gas tank.. Bottom line, STAYS PUT! no questions!
Great Product. would recommend.
excellent no complaint works great
Unfortunately in hot days this mount looses its suction. A bit disappointed in this purchase. Would have gotten something better for this price.
