Steps

  1. 1
    Basically, this is the device that you mount to the windshield of your car or any glass surface.
    It can also be used in a home or an office. We are going to be demonstrating office use for our purposes. Once installed you can then use it to hold your phone and give you the ability to operate it hands free.

    As you can see on the back of the package there's a photo demonstrating the actual device holding what appears to be an iPhone.

    You can see the other functions of it listed on the right-hand side of the picture on the back.

    But we're going to show you because looking at the box is nowhere near as exciting as opening it, as any child would tell you.
    To start with, put your finger under the top, and give it a hard pull. You're not going to break anything, and if you do it's just the box.

    Next thing we're going to do is give this a slide out.

  6. 6
    We now have an empty box.
    We do not need this. Let's put this box to the side.

  7. 7
    Next we are going to pull out this strange device.
    We're going to move the other piece of the box off. We also do not need that.

    Now, we have a cell phone holding device.

    If you notice on the bottom there is a bit of plastic wrap.
    We'll take that off in just a minute.

    First, I want to show you how this works.
    The suction cup sits on a flat surface. A porous surface such as a wall is not suitable. You need a glass surface. Occasionally a smooth table will also work, but any type of porous material will cause the suction to slowly lose air, at which point it will fall over. In this case you're dealing with a suction device that needs to be preferably on glass.

  11. 11
    The second piece of that is once you do attach it to the glass, it's hard to pull it off.
    So there's a tab on the side. When you stick this to something, you use that tab to pull out.

  12. 12
    Now, the way this suction cup works is rather brilliant.
    The suction cup itself is attached to a lever just above it. When you push the lever down, the middle of the suction cup moves in. Pulling the lever back up will cause the suction cup to move back out again. This allows you to create suction which locks down. Now, a firm base of suction has been created.

  13. 13
    You cannot use the edge tab to pull it up easily at that point.
    You have to pop the lever up, and then you can pull it up.

  14. 14
    Once you've established suction with the device, you then have the top piece, the head.

  15. 15
    There are two parts to the head.
    The first is this little twisting screw. You can screw it on and off. It allows you to move, to lubricate, and even take off the top piece.

  16. 16
    The ball doesn't really require any lubrication, but occasionally you may want to clean it.
    You could put a little bit of electrical component lubricant or something else on there that's not going to leak or run down and get on your phone. Really, you don't need to.

    To put this back together, you put the top piece over the little ball.

  18. 18
    Then you just take the top piece and snap it on.
    It snaps nice and easy.

    Then you tighten the nut against the screw when you're ready.

    Now, you can then turn the top piece however you would like would like it.

  21. 21
    When you put your phone in you're just going to pull the two sides of the top piece apart.
    It opens up and then latches onto your phone.

    The flexible end bends.
    Obviously, as with all things flexible, you don't want to bend it a thousand times. Realistically, you would probably only need to bend it a couple times, and that's probably all that it's designed to do.

    Let's get a cell phone, and let's get started.
    I have a beautiful little iPhone 6.

    You can see just how little the phone is in comparison to this device.

  25. 25
    What we are going to do is take our suction device, and we are going to peel the little sticker off the bottom.
    It's not even really a sticker. It's just a piece of plastic.

  26. 26
    Then you're going to take a smooth surface, and as far as I'm concerned, glass is the perfect surface.
    You're going to place it against that surface, and you're going to push the suction piece down.

    Then you're going to push the lever down.

  28. 28
    Now, the lever is pushed, and the device cannot easily move.
    In fact, it's rather difficult to move.

  29. 29
    Then you can take your cell phone, and open the top part as we did earlier.

  30. 30
    Then you just slide your phone in.
    Your phone can sit pretty much wherever you want in this little device.

  31. 31
    You just situate it so that it's nice and cozy on the camera.
    Then you press the power button to get your phone started up.

    Start talking about whatever it is you're talking about.
    For demonstration purposes, let's open a song, a little bit of Lykke Lee, and let's give that a little play.

    Now, I've played this video on YouTube.
    It's currently sideways and looks bad.

    To make it landscape is very easy to do.
    Loosen the screw on the back.

  35. 35
    Turn the device to landscape mode.
    Make sure it's level against the camera, and there you have it. Now, you can quickly and easily show a landscape production as well.

    Let's close up this beautiful model and our Lykke Lee song.
    Let's put our phone back to its forward upright position. Oh wait, that's what they say on airplanes, my bad. Let's put the phone back up the way it goes normally.

  37. 37
    Let's give a press to our home button, and you see how easy it is to get this installed.
    This is how it works in your car. You're driving along, and at some point, you can just go and push different things on the phone. Use it for GPS, maps, navigation; perfect, not a problem.

    You want to turn it a little bit toward you?
    You can turn it to the left or to the right, or up or down. You can do pretty much whatever you want with this. It's a great device; very easy to use, and best of all it costs about $25.00.
