This has got to be one of the coolest phone or tablet holders I have seen yet. I have used tripods and balanced my phone on things to try to get the perfect angle for recording videos. But had I had this product, I never would have struggled! I could have easily adjusted the height and angle to get everything in the camera without me needing a second person recording for me.
This is a strong yet flexible stand made of flexible aluminium magnesium alloy with PVC. I have no clue how any of that works and combines to make it move, but it IS flexible, though it takes a little effort to move it and shape it to the perfect height for you. I have yet to pull it fully straight, since it is giving me a work out just trying to get it straight enough to view my items... and I exaggerate. It is not that bad. I DO have to use more muscle, but it is something I can easily do. Better yet, my 11 year old, who is punier than anything, was able to adjust it perfectly fine.
It has a sliding holder that can expand enough to insert you phone sideways or to put in a tablet. I love the idea of being able to mount this on the edge of my kitchen bar and then pull up my recipe and have it in front of me to read while prepping whatever I am making. I always end up getting flour or some other ingredient on my phone or tablet when I am trying to cook or bake. This solves that and I don't have to damage my walls or counter tops by installing some other kind of mount!
My 11 year old stole it from me after school and attached it to his desk in his room so that he could sit back and watch videos on his phone without having to hold it. The kids have a no computer policy during the week, so they watch YouTube videos or movies on their phones. This was his solution to being able to be lazy and lay down or move around as he wanted without having to pick up his phone while doing it or shift his little tabletop phone stand. He loves it!
This is an AWESOME mount and I am sure it is going to get a LOT of use in our family! It has already gotten a ton of use in the few days it has been here!
