Nite Ize STFK-01-R8 overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy safe, hands-free use of your phone when you're on the go with the Steelie FreeMount Vent Kit from Nite Ize. This universal kit works with most types of vehicle vents and smartphones. Phones stay gripped securely in the adjustable FreeMount, which then connects magnetically to the Vent Mount. The FreeMount arms can be adjusted to hold phones in place, and the release button on the back makes it easy to remove your phone in a single, smooth motion. The Vent Mount is a portable solution that can be moved easily from car to car by simply unsnapping the cam locking lever, then clicking it back in place on the next vehicle vent. The round shape of the ball on the Vent Mount allows the FreeMount to smoothly articulate for the desired viewing angle. As an added bonus, when the FreeMount is on your phone, it allows it to connect magnetically to other convenient surfaces like your refrigerator or tool box.

    Steelie FreeMount Vent Kit is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just wanted to say, this is a great product with just a mino Just wanted to say, this is a great product with just a minor flaw that if fixed would make this a perfect product. So I received this unit and have been using it for a couple weeks now. the holder is great and the movement is great and solid. The only issue I have is when it comes time to remove the phone, the grip on the vents isn't strong enough so it starts coming loose and if you want to remove the phone while it's in the holder the whole unit comes off instead of detaching at the magnetic point. Not sure if the gripping area needs to be larger or be able to grip tighter or both, but if you can fix that, it would make this product perfect in my eyes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid product that actually does what it promises! I have tried many car mounts and this by far has been the best. It has a sturdy clip that actually will stay mounted on the vent, so many others have tried and just end up sliding down. I have the iphone 7plus (pretty heavy phone) and the Freemount vent kit has no problem gripping the phone and holding it upright. I am able to connect my navigation through bluetooth and have my phone in my sight so I don't have to look down at my lap anymore while driving. Love this product and it has become a staple of my drive to work and even on my adventures!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Plastic peg holding the unlocking arm is not up to the job After six months of daily use holding an iPhone the plastic peg securing the unlocking arm sheared off. It's simply not up to the task of handling constant torquing. This is a bit of a design flaw and a metal peg should be considered in future. I have submitted a warranty request and have no doubt NiteIze will send a replacement as their customer service is top notch. Though I prefer the universal nature of the Freemount, I'd probably suggest the stick on magnet to a friend. However, it seems like an easy fix for future designs and an otherwise well designed and durable product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good with vertical vents Love their products but disappointed with this one. My Chevy truck has vertical air vents and the louvers (with the added weight of the device and phone) flops to the left and right as the vehicle turns. Also the vice grip doesn't hold with gravity working against it when I reposition the phone; it slowly slides down and falls off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing is perfect but this is close I think this is probably the best option for a vent mount on the market. First of all, the parts are sturdy and well made. I love that there is a clamp for the vent so it really grips onto the vent. Other holders don't have this and I found that the whole thing would often tumble off. Second, the fact that the free mount is separate from the magnet that clips into the vent gives you the ability to move and orient the phone every which way. Thirdly, there is enough distance when mounted between the phone and the vent so that the air coming out of the vent isn't a consideration. In the past with other vent mounts, I've had to close that particular one so that the heat doesn't affect my phone. Lastly, every other magnetic holder that I've seen requires you to stick something to the back of your phone and for me, that's not a desirable option.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea, doesn't hold up I bought it last summer, used it a couple weeks. Had to take a trip to Florida to help family that was flooded. Having 3 drivers with different phones popping in and out for their shift (we drove straight thru down and back). The device had a hard time fitting each phone tightly. About half way back it stopped holding the phone in place completely. The side clips don't engage at all, so now it's a piece of junk. Had it all of 2 weeks...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent hold I have only been using this for one day so far but I love it. We are long haul truck drivers and this serves my needs greatly. I don't use it in the vent, I have it on a ball that is attached to the front of the dash. My phone hasn't moved a bit and we have gone over some pretty rough patches of road. This product was very easy to figure out, the directions were very clear and I love it. Thank you so much!
