Buy RAM X-Grip from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

You name it, and the X-Grip will probably hold it



Specifications

The RAM X-Grip is a universal holder that will work with just about any gadget and you can put your smartphone in it with a case on and still have it held snugly. The RAM X-Grip will attach to any of the RAM mount arms for mounting to your car or any other vehicle. The mount will work with any device at least 0.875" wide and up to 3.25" wide. You can buy one now for $23.40.

In Use

Last week I wrote about the RAM Mount Twist Lock suction cup mount with the custom iPhone 4 holder. The only downside to that mount was that if you use a case on your iPhone you have to remove it to fit the smartphone into the holder. Today I am checking out the RAM X-Grip that fits onto the Twist Lock arm and will work with just about anything. I used the RAM X-Grip with my iPhone 4 inside its case and the X-Grip worked perfectly.

To mount the RAM X-Grip you use the two screws that came with it to screw it to the end of one of the RAM mounts. In my case, I used the Twist Lock suction mount to hold the RAM X-Grip to my windshield in the car. I was using the RAM X-Grip and the suction arm at Eagle Canyon Raceway in Denton, Texas for a track day with my 2012 Boss 302. I was running a GPS lap timer app on the iPhone 4 and with the speeds and forces the car was subjected to during the event the RAM X-Grip and the twist lock arm held without any incident at all.

The suction cup stayed planted on the windshield no matter how fast I drove or how bumpy the track got. The iPhone 4 was in a thin iFrogz case and the RAM X-Grip held it tightly. The car was pulling over 1G on the track and the iPhone 4 stayed put and never budged in the holder. The phone was also held steady enough for the app to use the iPhone accelerometers and sensors with accuracy.

The RAM X-Grip also worked great for putting the iPhone on the windshield for GPS navigation or to allow a passenger to watch a video or a movie while on the road. The best part about the RAM X-Grip is that it is nearly universal. If you have more than one device like a GPS, navigation or multiple smartphones this one mount should work for and of them.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy to install
  • Holds iPhone 4 and other devices with a case installed

Cons

  • Bulky
 

Conclusion

The RAM X-Grip is a fantastic holder for your iPhone or other device under 3.25" wide. You can even mount your iPhone securely with a case on it.
