The Satechi Universal Smartphone Dashboard Mount for 3.5”- 5.5” Smartphones conveniently mounts your smartphone on your dashboard where it can be easily viewed and reached. No tools are required to use this mount since it uses gel suction to attach to the dashboard. The mount securely keeps your smartphone where you need it most without obstructing your view. An adjustable arm allows the smartphone to be raised upward or lowered downward, while a ball joint allows for 360-degree rotation and tilting to various angles for clear visibility and easy reach of your smartphone. Pull apart the spring holder to insert smartphones up to 5.5 inches wide and the padded grips will protect your smartphone from scratches while securely holding it in place. A lever aids in providing a vacuum space for the suction to secure to the dashboard and stabilize the smartphone. This mount is not recommended for use on or near an airbag.
