I was recently invited to review the Universal CD Slot Mount for Smartphones by i2 Gear. Of course, I said yes because I know my husband would love that. It arrived pretty quickly via Amazon Prime. And as expected he got giddy when he saw the gadget.

WHERE DOES IT MOUNT?
The mount itself inserts into the CD drive and locks into place through the use of a screw and pressure lock. The slot is composed of two separate wedge inserts which expand in the opposite direction with each turn of the screw.
1. Connect the ball mount wedge to the ball mount connector; use the screw to secure and adjust position
2. Insert Screw with hurricane knob into the wedge mount.
4. Insert Plastic Blade into CD player slot; turn the hurricane knob until the mount holds firm.
5. Insert your device and position accordingly.
Hubs says it is very easy to install and it holds really well. It works for his iPhone 6 and my iPhone 5. He also tried it with our son’s big Android phone; it also worked. The part that you mount on the CD holder is very secure and even on a bumpy ride, you can be sure your phone and its position will stay in place. The phone holder also allows you to turn your phone on any direction and hubs thinks it’s pretty cool.
This reliable car phone holder does exactly what it is supposed to do. It holds all kinds of phone securely and it’s a well made product. If you’re looking for a good phone holder, this is a great product to try.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
