Many times I find it cumbersome to have to tug at spring loaded cell phone camera tripod mounts. You are holding the phone with one hand and pulling on the top of the mount with the other while trying not to upset the tripod itself. Then you misalign the cellphone while performing the first stunt and the mount presses on the volume or power button on the side of the phone.
Not so with this beauty! No springs. Just a tension knob on top, much like a vice. Turn the knob enough to place the phone in the mount. Then tighten it down slightly to hole the phone securely. I am going to replace all the other cell phone tripod mounts in my fleet with this one. Sturdy, easy to use, simple construction. If you find yourself in a similar situation, you might benefit from this mount.
