So, my Offroam mount came today, and took all of 60 seconds to install. The machining, design, concept, and packaging are all excellent. It's super-stout and doesn't move at all, is padded in all the right places, and is dead simple to operate. I've been waiting a long time for a clamp like this. No drilling (I was starting to resign myself to that as the best/most sturdy option), and can easily be placed to not block the vents and stereo. Unless it fails catastrophically or becomes unable to hold firm over bumpy roads (neither seems likely), my search is over. Will certainly followup if either of those come to pass. Great job, Offroam!





Oh, I would also be remiss if I didn't point out that Offroam was great to deal with. I received a proactive note from Alexa thanking me for the order, and double-checking to see that I'd seen the note on their website that the order would ship this week (not last week). I hadn't, so it was awesome of her to reach out - I suspect by the weekend I'd be wondering why it hadn't shipped yet. :-p

This holder has been thoroughly tested on all kinds of roads - including all over Baja, Mojave etc. and all sorts of vehicles. The spring tension took a lot of time to get right - so you can use one hand to get the phone in/out but keep it without sliding on any terrain.

We did a lot of work on the surface of the sides as well - so even if you use your phone without a case where sides are slippery, the holder still provides ample grip.

Mike @socialpants did a cross country tour with an early model and recorded a quick reel about the holder on Mojave rd Login • Instagram

It looks like a copy of the 67 Designs mount, which is made in the USA.

I have the ProClip for my 4R. It works great. Its much lower than my last mount was. It blocks the vent somewhat, but like someone pointed out earlier it does keep phone cool which will help on long trips. I still get plenty of air on the hot days of Texas.

Hi have been using the Scosche Magic Mount like this one.

Scosche MagicMount Universal Magnetic Phone Holder for Mobile Devices - Black | eBay

Iíve been very happy with it and have had no complaints. I think magnetic mounts are the way to go. Simply put it on and youíre good to go. Iíve had grip mounts before but I found them a bit clumsy and usually requires two hands to put it in the mount. Iíve also had mounts that clipped on to air vents but they didnít seem to hold all that well and long term use I think they will eventually damage the plastic air vents.
