Square Jellyfish Jelly-Grip Car Vent Mount
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

Finally, a Car Vent Mount that Won't Fall Off - the Jelly-Grip Car Vent Mount from Square JellyfishSquare Jellyfish announces the release of the Jelly-Grip Car Vent Mount, a car vent mount for your smartphone or GPS that won’t fall off. Other car vent mounts use plastic clips, suction, friction or stickiness to stay on. The Jelly-Grip Car Vent Mount has a sturdy metal hook that latches on to the inside of the car vent and is tightened with a screw to keep the mount in place. It is almost impossible for the mount to loosen or fall off, a top complaint from users of other products. Smartphones fit horizontally or vertically in the spring mount claws, and the pivot ball joint allows you to rotate your phone to almost any angle. The spring mount claws easily screw off to reveal the pivot ball, which can accommodate a Garmin GPS with a 17 mm ball joint socket.

“We are eager to launch the third generation of this product. Jelly-Grip is designed by an engineer, and we are always striving to make our products work better for our customers,” said Judie Kuhn, spokesperson for Square Jellyfish...
