Product Description

Hands-free. Safe driving. Truthfully, the safest place for your phone when you’re in the car is in the glove box, turned off. But since we all know that’s probably not what you’re going to do with it, doesn’t it make sense to put it someplace where it’s securely held and in plain sight? We think so. That’s where the Clingo Universal Vent Mount comes in. Clingo keeps it in view. Where does your phone end up when you’re driving? Clingo’s Universal Vent Mount allows you to keep your phone where you can glance at it if you need to, without taking your attention from the road. The highly adjustable ball and socket joint provides the flexibility to get the viewing angle just right. (Great for your new GPS App) And as always, the Clingo sticky pad holds your phone tightly, yet lets it go when you’re ready to have it back. Let your phone stick to Clingo, so you can stick to driving. Clingo’s Vent Mount is easy to install, and a great way to mount your cell phone with or without a hard shell protective case, including all models of the Apple’s iPhone or iPod, Blackberry, Droid, or other Smartphones. Any phone, anywhere. It’s pretty simple, really. Clingo holds any phone. It doesn’t matter if it’s a BlackBerry, iPhone, Samsung, latest Droid or whatever. Whether in your car, at the office, at home, or wherever - Clingo holds it.

I got the clingo mount and installed it in my car, and the first time I used it, it worked excellently, and I was really excited. however the second time I used it, it bent and detached a metal cosmetic strip on the back of he phone when I tried to take it off. Still, I wasn't too upset because I was happy that it worked so well. But the next time I used it, my phone fell after about 10 minutes. I figured that I did not stick it on too well so I tried again and this time the phone fell after about 2 minutes. I went ahead and washed the surface as described by the manual, and it worked... for 1 use. just to test, I washed the mount, connected my phone(after it dried of course) waited a couple minutes to make sure that it was sticking, then removed the phone and immediately reattached it, and it would not stick again, so it isn't due to the fact that dust is landing on the mount. now every time I use it I need to wash it, hence the low rating.

This worked great initially. But, after a few months, possibly due to the "heat" of coastal California, the green goo got nasty sticky. If you touched it with your finger it would come off on your hand. When I placed my iPhone on it and then tried to remove my iPhone, bits of stick green goo came off with the iPhone. It worked really well for about a few months but it was useless after. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

If the inside of your car is 70-80 degrees farenheit, then the clingo will work perfectly. It attaches and detaches perfectly. The problem with it arises when your car is really hot or cold. I go to school during winter in upstate New York and spend summers in the lower mid-atlantic. During the winter, this thing is unusable because the coldness reduces the stickiness of the pad so it will constantly fall off, nearly being a driving hazard. During hot weather, like I've had recently, the pad is TOO sticky, making it a hassle to take off, making me fear I will break my phone. It will also leave a sticky residue on the backside of the phone.

So basically if the inside of your car remains a constant temperature, this stand isn't bad, otherwise, it can be a pain, and I haven't found a way to fix it. I'm going to try keeping the clingo pad inside my house, at a more constant temperature and only putting it in my car when I'm using it.

Also, you should make sure that there is plenty of space around your vents for the contraption to fit. I had to flip the base attachment of my clingo upside down to fit.

Update: I ended up throwing it away. I was really rooting for this device and hoping it would work correctly, but it is more of a hassle than it's worth.

This item works perfectly, in as much as their advetisement goes. There are a couple of notes on the product to be aware of. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS for cleaning this unit. One reviewer mentioned that theirs lost the stickiness, but mine never did. In fact when it was dirty and I cleaned it per the instructions, it came out just fine and has always stuck to my phone. If anything, it is TOO sticky at times. Additionally, the vent model isn't as strong as the dash or windshield mount and is prone to breaking off the clips...which is what I did. The back clips can get stuck on the vents and if you're not careful, you'll break them right off the mount. Be warned! Otherwise, this is s agreat product.

The product looked intriguing so I thought I'd try it. As promised it was very sticky and held my iPhone well for about one week. I then followed directions to gently clean and rejuvenate the sticky pad, letting it dry fully. Unfortunately the stickiness factor dropped about 90 percent and my iPhone frequently falls off while I'm driving. I can't recommend this product if you plan on using it every day on your commute to or from work or school.

When this first arrived it worked great. It was *very* sticky. Maybe a bit too much, but that was okay. I didn't want my phone falling off in the car. When it got dirty, it stopped sticking. I figured not problem, I'd follow the instructions and wash it. I did, twice. Made NO difference. I tried once with water and once with water and a bit of hand soap.

Great idea, poor choice of materials because it only lasted a few weeks.

I bought the Clingo vent mount in the spring of 2012. It was great for the first 2 months. Just sticky enough to hold my iPhone securely and not too much that you couldn't pull it off easily. Then the heat of July had its way with the Clingo pad. The green pad started coming off on everything that touched it. My phone was stuck on the pad so firmly the one time, that I thought the rear glass cover was going to come off my phone. I managed to get it off the mount, but not before breaking the plastic ball mount and one of my vent's slats off simultaneously. Did I mention it was a brand new car? Ugg.

This product is fantastic until the green pad starts breaking down. It's a real shame- I really liked it. Cannot recommend it because of this core failure.

The (probably) licensed adhesive technology is really great, but the product design is horrible. Weak plastic was used, and there is no strengthening where the clips connect to the mounting bracket. To a lesser degree, the way the adhesive mount slides into the mounting bracket is just as flawed since it can easily slide out (or break) being held on by only 2-3mm of plastic. I had a $5 mount with more durability. In my case, the bracket arrived defective. By the way, there is no manufacturer warranty anywhere in the product packaging nor Allsop or Clingo web sites. Neither would respond to any contact attempts.

Update:
After calling them directly, I got a hold of someone who said they redesigned the defective component and would send me one. I did receive it fairly quickly, but it did not show any changes in the design to fix the weak spot. Nonetheless, I got a replacement. For the new one, I reinforced the defective area before installing it, and it hasn't broken yet.
