Product Description

Color: Black

The SM429-SBH air vent universal smartphone car mount is compatible with the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, 4, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Note 3, Galaxy S5, S4, S3, LG G3, G2, and Nexus 5, Amazon Fire Phone, HTC One M8 and One Max, Nokia Lumia 1520, 1020, and Motorola Moto G and Moto X. This mount includes Arkon’s Mega Grip one touch push-button holder and an air vent mount with swivel ball head. The universal design of the holder accommodates any smartphone having up to 3.25” width with no height restrictions, making it compatible even when used with a large protective case or skin. The holder’s unique side-grip technology provides a strong grip that’s easy to use. Just set your phone in the mount and close the arms to lock in place. A push of the holder’s side button releases the phone. The easy-to-use, recently redesigned and upgraded air vent mount clips attach onto any horizontal air vent louvers. A support leg rests on the bottom of the mount for added reinforcement. Unfortunately, this solution will not work with circular air vent louvers. The swivel ball head of the air vent mount provides 360° rotation, giving you the ultimate flexibility in viewing the smartphone from any angle. Garmin GPS devices can also be mounted to the car’s air vent by simply unscrewing the swivel ball adapter and revealing the 17mm ball mount base. Replacement air vent clips are provided directly by Arkon under a limited lifetime warranty.

Customer Reviews

It's very easy to install.
T. Selander
Holds my phone nice and snug as it flies off the vent and crashes to the floor every time I hit a bump.

The attachment clips that go into an air vent are not strong.

This is a great little vent mount! I needed something to hold my phone when I was driving. There's a little pocket where I can place my phone while driving (Volvo S60) but you can't see the screen. This fit the bill perfectly. The load bearing piece on the bottom lines up great and holds the weight well. Some notes for my specific config:

1. The holder does bounce a bit since it uses the weight of the phone to hold it in place. Though it's not much, it's worth noting. It only really goes *up*. never down. The mount itself grabs on very well in the S60.
2. Pivoting from Portrait to Landscape requires you to pull out on the mount. It's not immediately obvious, but after fiddling around I figured it out.
3. In my specific application (Otterbox case + iPhone 4), the phone is too heavy for landscape. The mount pivots up/down in landscape and left/right in portrait; as a result, when in landscape, the mount just sags down. There isn't enough feedback to hold it up. Not a huge deal, but not optimal.

Due to #3, it gets 4/5 stars. Still, it's a really great mount for my application and works awesome. I use it in Portrait and may just use some super glue to allow landscape viewing (I don't need to adjust the angle at all anyway). Hope this is helpful to others looking at this holder!

Update: Just bought another for my wife's car. First stand I had to last so long.

This holder fits all the devices I currently have (iPod, Nokia N900, Nokia N8 and Nexus S), and the grips also allows to put the thinner devices in landscape mode for navigation.
The vent grips, however are not maneuverable enough to fit in any car. Fitted in a Mazda and Ford Explorer, but not in Hyundai vents. Make sure your vents flaps are horizontal and located as much to the center of the dashboard, otherwise you might be disappointed.

I was looking for an Iphone mount without having something attached to my windshield for my 2001 Mustang. I bought the Arkon SM429-SBH because I liked the flexibility of viewing angles it provided.

I received without instructions, which is no big deal. I got them from their website. The instructions contradicts itself from the picture of the mount itself and the assembly instructions. The bottom support is shown one way in the picture and shown differently in the instructions. The viewing position in my car is just right. The mount held my Iphone with an Otter Box case in padded collapsible side braces with a convenient release button to remove the phone. The mount blocks my climate controls a little but with the distance it is set away from the dash I can still adjust them by reaching under the mount. I can easily change from portrait to landscape. The friction knob at the pivot works good. It has a good range of viewing angles.

The problem with this mount is the bottom support just dosen't cut it. With the mount in place without a phone the vent louvers can be adjusted without a problem. Once you put the phone in the weight pushes the vent louvers all the way down. If the lower support that rests on the dash had more resistance it would support the phone better and allow vent louver adjustment.

I'm sure this mount doesn't work in all situations, but in our vehicle there are 3 small vents in a row in the center of the dash. Using the center one for this mount worked perfectly, putting the phone high enough to be in line of sight and easy to access without blocking any other controls (radio, etc) and low enough not to block dash indicators.

It may block some airflow from the vent, but in our application there are other vents on each side. I was surprised at how sturdy the mount is while driving. I use my phone as a gps for navigation, and somewhat expected it to bounce around a bit while on the road. To my surprise there is very little of this, and the mount seems quite steady. The phone is easy to insert and remove, and will hold steady in either horizontal or vertical positions. I really couldn't ask for more. The perfect solution for my situation.

The product broke while I was trying to mount it for the first time. It got very weak vent mounting "duck lips". I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

This product was perfect while it lasted, securely holding my iPhone right where I wanted it. Unfortunately, the vent mounts broke within a week of its first use.

I honestly can't see how anyone can get much life out of this project. It's just too fragile.

So, without the mounting clips, this thing is worthless. Recommendation to avoid.

The two plastic clips that go in the vent are hard to keep "clipped on" to the vent louvers. the holder falls off if you bump it hard. Putting it back on is difficult. After many times of putting it back on one of the clips broke so it is not usable.

This unit has some small clips that are supposed to attach to the car's vents, in order to hold the phone mount in a position to allow you to see it. But the clips that attach to the car vent louvers are WAY TOO SMALL. The clips broke within a week of installation, under infrequent and normal use. With my unit, they broke at the hinge of the clip that attaches to the louvers in the car vent, where the plastic on the clip is less than 1/16" thick. This proved to be too small and too weak to bear the weight of an iPhone. Perhaps if the manufacturer modifies the clips to make them stronger and more substantial I could recommend it. But in its current configuration, you should expect little or no useful life of this product.
