Our take on the Joby GripTight GorillaPod Stand

by Woody Sherman

This GripTight GorillaPod Stand is worth a camera assistant's salary when you need a stable mounting for your smartphone. Whether you're trying to get yourself into the shot, or shooting in low/no light, this extremely portable stand will attach itself to almost any convenient fixed object and hold your phone rock-steady.

With rubberized ring and foot grips, the tripod stays secure despite rough treatment. The GripTight GorillaPod Stand is designed for most smartphones with or without cases, but it also can accommodate other items like small point-and-shoot digital cameras.

Overview: The GripTight GorillaPod Stand by Joby contains two items: the GripTight Mount and the GorillaPod tripod. Together, this super-compact stand can be used to hold most smartphones for taking photos and videos or for viewing content.

Usage: The GripTight mount is a spring-loaded clamp that provides a tight fit for all iPhones and iPod touch models, as well as most Android and Windows smart phones from 2.1" and 2.8" in width, with or without a case. The mount has a standard 1/4"-20 tripod thread so it can be attached to the supplied GorillaPod or any tripod. When mounted on the GorillaPod tripod, the GripTight mount can hold devices up to 11.5 ounces. The included Universal Camera adapter attaches to the mount, allowing you to quickly detach your smartphone from the tripod when necessary.

GorillaPod Design: The GorillaPod is a lightweight (1.6 ounces), extremely flexible tripod. It features two dozen flexible leg joints that bend and rotate 360° so you can position the smartphone in any position, vertically or horizontally. You can even wrap the GorillaPod around a pole or tree branch, or perch it on a rock or other uneven surface.

Materials: The GorillaPod uses high-quality, injection-molded plastic for snug joints that stay in place, even after lots of action. The rubberized ring and foot grips provide extra gripping power to prevent slipping.


  • Mount: W=1.075" H=2.348" to 3.25", D=1.43"
  • GorillaPod: Height=6.625", Leg Length=5", Top Platform=0.954" x 0.866"

Every smartphone user needs this

Written by Zak Billmeier, Staff Writer - Creative, on 2/18/2013 9:26:00 AM

OK, I'll admit that when I picked up one of these it was a bit of an impulse buy. I had just downloaded a stop-motion animation app and was planning to remake Clash of the Titans using my daughter's dollhouse toys. However, a few months later, it has become an essential smartphone accessory.

Its most obvious use is perhaps for shooting photos and videos, and while I have done some of that, I ended up using it for the following things so much more:

  • as a stand for viewing recipes on my phone while cooking;
  • on my exercise machine so I can watch TV shows while exercising;
  • as a mount in my car (I can scrunch it up to fit a cupholder);
  • as a stand for using with Facetime;
  • And if that's not enough, you can remove the pincers that grip your phone and mount a small digital camera or camcorder to it. You can fold it into almost any shape and stuff it into a bag or pocket. I just love this little thing!

Strong Grip

Written By Ken, Northern Illinois on Monday, December 24, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Does a great job holding my iPhone 5 while using it for my alarm clock. Only caveat is watch where you position the phone. The grip is strong enough that if you position the phone so that the "gripper" is on the "-" volume button, it will turn the volume all the way off. The upside - extra sleep. the down side - late for work.

A great piece of gadget - my daughter no longer has to hold her phone all the time in Facetime. I can see her and my grandson playing the piano together.
