Phone holder mod on vent.

I made this from inspiration from lifehacker. Holds phone solidly. I also have same wallpaper on both phone and dash. Wiring comes from center console. Picture with pen shows where usb wiring comes out from. Hope you like it!

How is the phone held to the car? Binder clip?

Yes, held on by a large binder clip.

I have something similar that I made; I jerry-rigged a binder clip to a custom rotating mount that I already had and clamped the whole thing to the lip of the soft-touch dash to the left of the center screen.

My first attempt just included sticking the mount to the binder clip; it didn't last well and the clamp left a dent in the material from being stuck on for so long.

I made two flat pieces against which the clip pinches now, so as to more evenly distribute the pressure to prevent pinching. The mount is also connected to the clip via a screw rather than adhesives so I can take the thing apart and remove the clip if necessary.

I can post pics in a few days in another thread. I'm not sure my solution is universal to others given the unique nature of my mount (I bought it out-of-country), but I'm hoping that between you and me, we can spread unto others the great utility of the binder clip as mounts! =D
