Product Description

The texthook fits the handlebars for the most popular brands of strollers, treadmills and other exercise equipment, including but not limited to Bugaboo, Baby Jogger, Maclaren, Uppababy, Phil & Teds, BOB, and Life Fitness.

texthook comes assembled and includes: (i) top slider, (ii) base and (iii) mount. The Velcro strap (included) is used to attach texthook to your handlebar.

Attaching texthook is simple. With the smartphone holder facing you and the fuzzy side of the Velcro strap facing up, thread the velcro strap through the slit in the front of the mount. Thread from the top of the mount and pull through until the plastic loop is resting against the top of the mount. Place the mount directly on the handlebar and bring the Velcro strap up against the handle bar and thread it up through the slit in the back of the mount. The Velcro strap should now be underneath the handlebar and coming out through the slit in the back. Pull tightly as you bring the Velcro strap towards the front in order to thread it through the plastic loop. Pull tightly and secure the Velcro strap to itself. For the tightest fit, there should be three (3) layers of Velcro under the bar.

Designed for use with hands free headsets, such as Bluetooth, texthook was not designed for use with headphones that plug into the phone. Although texthook may work with certain devices with headphones plugged in, this product is not intended to be used as such, and therefore is not under guarantee that it will accommodate a phone with headphones attached.

I purchased this as a gift for my wife who was always complaining her blackberry falls out of, or gets scratched by the stroller cupholder. Since I've purchased the texthook, my wife never misses my calls

She said the texthook also works real well with her bluetooth since now she knows who is calling her immediately and doesn't have to find the phone in order to click answer - or even worse answer without called id

She has also used the texthook in the gym. She used to complain that she had no pockets or place for her phone at the gym. She says how easy the texthook's velcro strap is to attach to the handlebar whether she is using the treadmill, elliptical or stationary bike. Her blackberrry fits perfectly in it. It was a huge bonus that it came assembled.

I too have tried out the texthook with my iphone and am extremely impressed by the utility of this product.

Oh how I love my texthook. I put my IPhone in it, turn on some tunes and take off for a long walk. It's a great accessory for our Quinny Buzz Stroller.

I work from home so I like to keep an eye on my phone all the time for emails and incoming calls. This product is great for attaching my iPhone to my Uppa Baby Vista stroller and keeping it in view when I'm on walks with my baby. If I could change one thing I would make the top slide-down a little smaller because the way it's built I can't plug my headset into the phone while it's in the holder, but overall I would recommend this product.

We were given a TextHook by a friend who recently got it for their baby. According to them it wouldn't fit either of their smartphones while they were in their cases. I don't currently use a case so they asked if I'd like to try it. I thought it would be great for our baby's stroller so I could walk her around and have quick and easy access to my phone. When I opened it, it felt very boxy and clunky but I figured it's not a big deal as long as it gets the job done. Well, for me and my iPhone 4S, it decidedly does not get the job done.

Firstly, when you place it in without any case on the iPhone, it sits very deeply recessed. I assume they gave extra space front to back for thicker phones or phones with cases. They even mention in the instructions that you can add some foam if it's not fitting in well. But like I said, my friends complained neither of their phones fit with the cases on (I'm assuming side to side as the top slides very far up and down). Secondly, while it does rotate 180 degrees, that is only side to side rotation while remaining only vertical, which is almost entirely pointless.

But the real deal-killer is the top piece that slides up or down to apply pressure and hold the phone in place. When you slide the top down far enough to hold the iPhone firmly in place, it ends up sitting on and pushing down on the power switch that is on every iPhone in the same top right spot. Immediately my phone was asking to "slide to power off". Swiping the phone on beforehand then moving the top down in place would put the phone to sleep. Loosening it enough to not hit the power button then felt like the phone was sitting too loosely.

I purchased this for my BOB stroller. It looked like a great gadget to attach to the handlebar so that I could have access to the phone, music, etc. when out and about with my daughter. When it arrived I immediately wanted to try this out, and found it to be more of a pain to deal with. It is rather large, and it gets in the way on the handle bar. I found the only way to use this on the stroller was to lay it flat or parallel to the ground. And even then my Iphone giggled around, which then made me worried it would fall out. Anyways I am returning the item and getting something that better suits my needs.

I was very excited to start using my texthook, which makes talking much safer when I am pushing my 2 kids in my stroller. I did initially however have a problem with my texthook, but was very pleasantly surprised to receive an email directly from the founder of the company apologizing for the problem and offering to compensate me for the inconvenience caused by the problem ... I have never had such great customer service. Only thing to be aware of is that for some phones, the phone may not fit in the case if the headphone jack is at the top or the bottom of the phone. I have had to make a little (but easy) modification to my texthook to use it with my iphone with headphones plugged in.
