Our take on the Pro.Fit miniGrip

by Matt Freeman
Pro.Fit International

Having a hard time finding a way to mount a small device like an iPod mini, portable MP3 player, or cell phone in your car? Pro.Fit's miniGrip features an adjustable sliding clamp that's designed to secure smaller portable devices. The clamps can grip your device either horizontally or vertically, depending on where your device's inputs and outputs are located. The adjustable supports on the bottom of the mount accommodate several types of device power plugs.

The miniGrip fits perfectly on a Pro.Fit <universal or vehicle-specific mount. Enter your vehicle information to see if a vehicle-specific mount is available for your car, truck, or SUV. You can also install the miniGrip using the included adhesive backing.

Features

Overview: The Pro.Fit miniGrip is designed to securely hold small handheld devices such as PDAs, iPods (standard size, photo, video, and mini), smart phones, or satellite radio receivers in your vehicle. It has adjustable grips to securely hold your device and a button for quick release.

Positioning Options: The versatile miniGrip can be positioned vertically with the grips on the sides or horizontally with the grips at the top and bottom to accommodate your device. Two support tabs can be placed at either end and repositioned to allow for plugs or cables.

Adjustable Grips: The side grips can be adjusted so the miniGrip can hold devices 1-3/4" to 2-1/2" wide and up to 4" tall. The grip pads are 2-1/2" apart at their widest adjustment and 1-3/8" at their narrowest adjustment. It is not recommended for devices more than 1" thick. The grips have soft rubber pads which cushion and hold your device without scratching the surface. Four rubber pads protect and cushion the back of the device as well. A button on the left side of the miniGrip releases the device.

Quick Release Adapter Plate: The miniGrip comes with a quick release adapter plate which is designed to integrate with the Pro.Fit VSM (vehicle-specific mount) or VSM Legend. The miniGrip is also compatible with the Pro.Fit UltiMount (042UL747BG), Loboy (042LB600), or WindowMate (042WM36) universal mounts. The adapter plate has 4 hooks that allow you to mount and remove the miniGrip with ease. Hardware is included for attaching the adapter plate to a compatible mount.

Adhesive Pad: If you do not have a VSM or VSM Legend, the miniGrip can be attached to a clean, flat surface using the supplied dual-sided adhesive pad.

Pro.Fit miniGrip

Written By James, Texas on Monday, December 07, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This fits a Zune 80GB perfectly with the adjustable sides extended to their max
distance. The Zune sync cable can also be attached to the player while it is in
the holder without hitting the two bottom adjustable feet. This also fits an HTC
Touch Pro (AKA AT&T Fuze) cell phone.

There is a little button you press on the bottom left side that makes the
adjustable sides pop out. They appear to be spring loaded. After you pop out the
adjustable sides, you lay in your device and then you squeeze the sides in until
your device is held snug.

I bought this for my husband's birthday, it's so awesome! His small phone fits in it, so he can text message while he's driving, and it isn't so dangerous, since he just sets his phone right in the holder. He attached it right next to his stereo, and it was really easy to do, it comes with adhesive tape. I am going to order one for my car next, it's really neat.

If you have a Ipod Nano this is perfect holder for you,it's the right size Im
using this with a Pro Fit FO-57-94 bracket in a 2002 Mustang GT .Also the
Customer service at Crutchfield is excellent. If you have a late model
Mustang you can't go wrong with this holder and VSM bracket

Great product

Written By Tommy, SC on Wednesday, March 21, 2007
 
I'm using this with a ProFit VSM Legend (CV-71-99-L) vehicle specific mount in my new body style '99 Chevrolet Silverado. It fits and works great. In the description, it says it holds the iPod mini's, but it also will hold a 30 gig iPod video perfectly. It opens slightly more than the 2 1/2 inches as listed. They foam on the side will also give a little bit for a little bit more room, if needed. It also holds my Garmin ETrex Legend GPS and Samsung flip phone.
