The phone holder fits any size cup holder perfectly and securely. You can mount or dismount your phone easily with one hand.

Pros: Phone mounts easily and can be adjusted to most any angle.

Cons: Wish the main stem was a little higher.

Neat Phone Holder

Yale from Miami Beach, FL on 3/6/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this because none of the other products for holding my phone were sturdy enough under real-world conditions and I was tired of having my phone tossed about the car. Fits perfectly in cup holder and is flexible enough to provide the perfect viewing angle. It is a bit bulky, but I'll trade that off for security.

Pros: Keeps the phone and wires out of the way; Doesn't fly around the car when I hit a bump; Easily moved from car to car.

Cons: Bigger, more obtrusive than vent clip.

Easy to use and works fantastically.

I purchased this at another store, didn't know Crutchfield sold them at the time... However since I found it here with no review I'd thought I'd add one. The cup-holder mount works perfectly in my vehicle as there is a location to the left of my steering wheel. It uses three vertical bars with rubber on the outside to grip the cup-holder. It works by turning the ring one direction to slowly and smoothly extend the three bars and the other to retract them. It holds incredibly well and I've never had it loosen up while in use. The two spring-loaded clamps as-well-as the "face?" of the mount are also made of the soft rubber material. You simply pull the two sides apart, set you phone in and let go. It fits my GS6 with an OtterBox Defender on it so it can definitely hold some large phones. Even with the case removed, the phone doesn't slide up or down thanks to the tension of the arms and the rubber used on this mount. I've owned it just over a year and have tried others that include the Macally cup-holder mount. Both the first and the exchanged Macally mounts broke due to the cheaper material and the flimsier internal mechanism that extends the base of the mount. I have yet to be disappointed with this Belkin mount but do wish it had the small extendable arm that the Macally does, that part at least functioned very well. Also, the small oval hole in the neck is for your charging cable or 3.5mm AUX cable to pass through to assist in cable management/routing.

Pros: High-Quality rubber, Well Designed, Easy to Operate, Stays-in-Place, Fits a wide assortment of cup-holders; even those that have a slot for mug handles, Spring-loaded arms, Twist-to-extend mechanism for the base.

Cons: Neck doesn't extend nor bend, Plastic base feels cheap even though it's incredibly strong.

Features

Car Cup Mount: The Belkin Car Cup Mount provides a safe and simple way to mount your smartphone in your vehicle. The Car Cup Mount fits securely in your vehicle's cup holder and safely positions your compatible smartphone within view (no suction cup or adhesive required).

360° Rotation & 90°Tilt: The Car Cup Mount can be rotated 360°, so you can position your smartphone in either portrait or landscape mode. Portrait mode is ideal for charging, listening to music, and hands-free phone calls, while landscape view makes using your favorite navigation apps easier. You can also tilt the mount 90° so your smartphone lies flat, keeping it out of the way of your vehicle's dash controls.

Adjustable Cup Holder Size: The mount's base expands from 2.5"-3.4375" (in diameter) to fit almost any size cup holder, so you can use it in practically any vehicle. And because there's no adhesive backing, you can easily move the Car Cup Mount between vehicles.

Adjustable Cradle: The Car Cup Mount's smartphone cradle is adjustable and can fit most smartphones from 2.125" wide to 3.3125" wide.

Compatible Smartphones: Compatible smartphones include, but are not limited to, the following -

  • Apple: iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5/5C/5S, iPhone 6/6+, & iPhone 6S/6S+
  • Samsung: Galaxy S II, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Note 4.

Cable Management: An opening in the mount's base keeps your phone's cable from getting tangled so it stays neatly connected to your device. This makes it easy to charge your smartphone while mounted using your car's power outlet (car charger sold separately).
