Well made but flawed design
on 13 February 2014
For less than £6 I thought that this item was well made and very robust.
However it has a fatal design flaw which prevents it from being used as shown in the pictures. It consists of two main assemblies, the main bracket and the phone holder. The phone holder has four slotted holes which locate on four 'L' shaped lugs on the bracket. The idea being that you push the phone holder onto the lugs and slide it down so that gravity holds it in place. Unfortunately the slots are upside down and the phone holder falls off the main bracket as soon as you try to use it. Because of the shape of the phone holder you cannot just turn it over and use it upside down because if you do the phone can fall out of the holder.
The only way I could get this to work was to take a file to the slots and extend them in the opposite direction. Not a difficult job but I am an engineer and I have a set of small files. Other people may find it more difficult - and why should they have to do this anyway, you see an item in a picture and you expect to get the same item in the box - I didn't, hence 2 stars.
