Great mount!

I used it for a set I performed at a music festival on a mic stand I never used before. It fit perfectly and I could adjust the angle so I could see the screen without looking down at it all the time. I use a thick case on my iPad 9.7 pro and it still fit just fine case and all.

Satisfied Customer

Appreciate all Nick did for me to get my Enduro mount quickly at no extra charge and threw in extra screws as well as special ball adapter to use with my gps. Great product. Just returned from almost 4000 mile trip with no issues. Highly recommend. Thanks Nick.

Solid Piece of Equipment at an Appropriate Price.

I bought this mount so I can hang an ipad from the ceiling of my Discovery 1 in the driver's compartment, nautical style. That way I can throw a bunch of OBDII data up on the screen to more carefully manage my vehicle's engine while I use it off-road or while I'm towing.

I grew up in the era where manufacturers matched the price of the mounting system with the price of the item to be mounted. I was therefore skeptical that I could get anything for less than about 150 bucks. Product description seemed legit. Style and size were desirable. Amazon return policy made it a reasonable risk to check it out.

Totally happy with this product. Little touches like metal ball joints and brass sleeved tensioners give me confidence in its ability to hold my equipment wherever I choose to mount it. The amount of well-fitting metal in this device tells me that the person who designed it was interested in creating a quality product primarily, rather than one which simply piled up cash. Packaging was also thoughtfully designed and properly contained the items in the kit without being trendy, wasteful, or difficult to open.

I feel completely at ease with the price I paid -vs- my comprehensive satisfaction level.

Great Mount. Its solid.

I put it on my 07 Electra Glide. Great fit and it holds my phone perfectly! (Galaxy S8 Plus with case) Great product. Thanks guys!

Perfect Mount

I got the TFEN-BM11-SPR Enduro Series™ Motorcycle Phone Mount | 3.5" Arm | Bar Mount Clamps on 7/8", 1", 1-1/8", 1-1/4" Bars | All Metal Design unit for my Samsung Note 8 large cell (6.3") and it grips perfectly. No need for the extra-security rubber sling that is included. I use my cell mostly in landscape mode running Google GPS and the 3.5" double ball joint allows me to adjust to the perfect viewing angle. Highly recommended!
