The MeFOTO SideKick360 Smartphone Tripod Adapter in black is a support for 2.3 to 2.8" wide smartphones that provides stability and allows for enhanced creative control over photos and videos shot with the phone's built-in camera. The aluminum Arca-Swiss style quick-release base works with full-size tripods and any Arca-Swiss style quick-release clamp. The adapter is equipped with three 1/4"-20 threads and one 3/8"-16 thread, allowing it to be mounted to a variety of quick-release plates, monopods, and handles. The flexible ball joint allows for 360-degree rotation, so you can situate your phone in either portrait or landscape mode, and the flat base allows it to be used by itself as a stand.

MeFOTO SideKick360 Reviews
Very nice phone holder
This is a particularly nice phone holder. It's secure, easy to use, and fits nicely on a tripod. It looks great, and is easy to use. It holds a bare iPhone 12 Pro comfortably, but this phone barely squeezes in with the Apple leather case attached. The base fits in my RSS Arca-Swiss tripod head at its first lever position, but is a bit too wide to clamp fully, as others have noted. So this might not be a five star product for everyone. A minute with a grinder or file would make it fit perfectly.
Very sturdy adapter! Got it to mount a game camera and works perfect. Will not mount an iPhone 13 large.
Not your everyday cheap, plastic, poorly made phone holder, but a solid piece of equipment. I expect that I will get years of use from it much longer than the next number of phones it will hold. Great value.
Very useful gadget!
I have a number of various iPhone holders for tripods and handheld stabilizers. This one takes the cake! I have 3 MeFoto tripods that I use so this is an ideal pairing. It allows for iPhone rotation without using special adapters which is very handy. the nice part is that it fits perfectly into the base on the tripod without having to use the normally removable plate. However, I have an adapter to rotate the camera through 360 degrees which I attach this unit to and use the removable plate in between. Very happy with my purchases and would highly recommend this adapter.
To small for most smart phones
If you have anything bigger than a Iphone 6 this will not work on your phone. Would be the perfect size for my closed Samsung Zfold 3 but the depth isn't enough to hold the phone. Luckily I have a few regular sized, quality phone mounts that I think will fit the base and ball socket that I can use instead.
Needs to be a little bigger for modern phones
If only the jaws opened 2-4mm more I'd be able to use my iPhone 12 with it's modest case. As such, I need to remove the phone from it's case to fit... If you have a larger iPhone, like a Max... forget about it. The jaws are great and the build is solid... but it's in need of a serous update for modern large phones!
Great little tool
It works well and is just as advertised.
Fooled me, looks like the larger one but phone doesn't fit
I bought this because my husband has the larger one (that I have since discovered has been discontinued https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1337837-REG/mefoto_mph300ta_sidekick360_plus_smartphone_tripod.html) and they're both the most disability-friendly, adjustable phone clamp we have found that fits a variety of mounts, but the clamp part of this version is too small and the difference wasn't obvious until it arrived in the mail.
