Product Description

The SM488 car or truck seat rail floor mount can be used with all smartphones, including the iPhone 6 Plus, 6, 5, 5S, 5C, 4S, 3GS, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Note 3, Galaxy S5, S4, S3, LG G3, G2, Nexus 5, HTC One M8 and One Max, Droid MAXX, Nokia Lumia 1520, 1020, Motorola Moto G and Moto X. The universal design of the Mega Grip 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. This mount includes Arkon’s Mega Grip one touch push-button holder and 18"flexible aluminum gooseneck floor mount. 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 car seat floor mount is made of strong, yet flexible aluminum, and is ideal for those who need easy access to their smartphones but prefer mounting them somewhere other than the windshield or dash. Install the mount to the car’s seat rail with a socket wrench by loosening the passenger seat track bolt, inserting the seat track bolt bracket, and retightening the seat track bolt. Bend the 18"gooseneck and rotate the swivel ball adapter head for 360° rotation, giving you the ultimate flexibility in viewing the smartphone from any angle. Optional floor brackets are included for screwing the car dock directly into the floor of the vehicle. (Warning: Drilling into the vehicle’s floor may damage the vehicle. Use caution and consult a mobile install professional to avoid drilling into any sensitive vehicle components.) For a larger seat rail or car floor mount, Arkon recommends Model SM488L22, which features a 22"flexible aluminum gooseneck.

Customer Reviews

Was easy to install and very very sturdy.

The one minor gripe is that the 15" arm is a little too short.
S. Hong
A incredibly well priced super high quality product that works!

I was looking for a mounting solution to put my iPhone exactly where I wanted it in my car. After looking everywhere, I decided to try this out and it's just "OK". The gooseneck is VERY, VERY stiff. This is a good thing because the longer the gooseneck is, the firmer it has to be to prevent rattling. However, you should note that you need to be Hercules to get it to bend in the right spots. Flexing the middle of the neck isn't bad, but towards the ends of the neck it's VERY difficult to bend.

My biggest complaint is that that this item is NOT 20". It's the 18" model seen all over Amazon. I bought this one in particular because I thought it was longer than the other (cheaper) 18 inchers, but no. This is 18" long. Even the instruction manual says 18". Don't know why the seller listed it as 20". It's not.

Another complaint is the little "feet" on the phone holder itself. The bottom foot broke off the very first day. They don't really do much "load bearing", so having break off wasn't the end of the world as the big side arms are what hold the phone in place. Still annoying. Another way to improve this item, in my opinion, would be having the back of the phone holder be "sticky no-slip pad". That will hold it in place for 2 seconds as you squeeze the arms "closed". I went and bought a "sticky pad" on Amazon, cut it up and super glued to it and it works great. The arms are over an inch wide, so the sticky pad also prevents the phone from being to far "into" the holder, so the side arms themselves prevent me from using the phone.

Overall, mounting from the seatbolt is smart and the gooseneck is very stiff to prevent it from shaking too, too much. But that's not to say this is a perfect solution either...

I bought this as the main part of a "stealth" stereo system in my son's old car. All the speakers are pretty much hidden and we still have the original AM Radio installed (and it works). Our entire system runs off an iPhone in this holder. Just bend it out of the way when not in use and throw a towel or shirt over it - you'll never know it's there.

Overall construction seems very good and it comes with both a solid floor mount and seat-bolt mount. It's not "rock solid" of course, being at the end of an 18" goose neck, but it holds the iPhone quite securely and right where we need it for easy access when driving.

A few of the "lock down" points are plastic or depend on small screws, which might be a concern if your constantly changing the position and orientation of your holder. That's the only reason I gave it 4 starts instead of 5 stars.

Overall - highly recommended for a car application (though you might need the longer version for a truck.)

I have loved this particular holder since they started making it, very versatile, but the base was a new thing for me (usually did the suction cups), had to get this for my new job and I could not stick things on the wind-shield of the work truck, this allowed me to put the phone where I can see it without losing sight of the road, and still out of the way of everything I need to do, it isn't taking up a drink holder; or an air-vent or obstructing the view in the wind-shield, if you need a universal mount this is it.

I didn't purchased the mount on Amazon but on Walmart which is cheaper (17.5 free shipping to store for pickup). I mounted this in my wrx 2012 and fit perfect for my Galaxy Note 2 even with extended battery and case. The unit is awesome.

Fits our smart phone.Just installed. When installing this to your seat bolt. I recommend finding another bolt only of the same thread and mental grade.Put a 1/16 thickness washer between the seat bolt hole and the mount if your seat has a dish like surface or dimpled in ward making the mount not sit flush. Needs to be at least 1/4 longer for the thickness of the cell mount and to aide in a couple extra threads for holding. Tighten but do not use to much gorilla strength until the bolt is difficult to turn any more.Do not want a broken bolt that holds your seat.Has a aluminium bar to adjust. May be difficult for some women to bend were they want it.Put a little body weight into it and you may have a easier time.Double check all screws are tight before mounting.All and all well made product. I will be buying another for my GT.

After spending WAY too much time trying to find the best thing to hold my cell phone while in the car...I came across this unit. I knew that I didn't want something up on the windshield or dash, but something that would be hard-mounted in the car. All investigations turned toward this unit. My car is a 2003 BMW 530i, and I spend a LOT of time driving each day. Fielding phone calls throughout the day can be a real challenge with stop-and-go traffic in some areas, and this device makes things a whole lot easier.

Due to the BMW's location of the seat bolt, the standard suggestion (see base of picture) was not able to be used. However, Arkon gives you two different mounting plates (included) that make things a snap. Taking the original (pictured) base off this unit and utilizing the L-bracket, I was able to mount this unit on the inside wall of the center console. 4 screws for the mounting bracket, and PRESTO! Good to go!

Bracket is tremendously sturdy...almost to the point of being difficult to manipulate into position -- but that's a good thing. It's tight and VERY secure in the car. Phone cradle slides on with ease, and is easily tightened to your desired position. Phone cradle is sturdy, and comfortable holds phone (even ones with protection cases) with ease. Once installed, it's just a matter of tweaking to your most desired position.

I would highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting to hard-mount a phone carrier/holder in their car or truck!

PROS: Extremely durable, easy to install, looks great, and works perfectly.
CONS: Default mount may not work with all vehicles. Requires extra tools (wrench or sockets) to install in some cases.
