Nite Ize: Steelie Car Mount Kit

Product provided from Nite Ize.  All opinions are my own.

Nite Ize Steelie CarMount Kit  – “Steelie - The World’s Greatest Mobile Device Holder!”  This is what Nite Ize claims on their site and I wholeheartedly agree!  I’ve been looking for a car mount kit for some time now, but I’ve found that most are too intrusive and bulky.  The Nite Ize Steelie is everything I had been hoping for to hold my iPhone 5 and regret not discovering this car mount sooner.

Before using the Steelie, I placed my phone strategically on my dash where the speedometer resides.  Unfortunately, when I make sharp turns or accelerate a bit too quickly, my phone flies out of the dash and ends up somewhere on the car floor.  This is dangerous because if you’re like me, I always need to have my phone within arm’s reach and reaching around the floor while driving is not safe.

The magnetic phone socket that attaches on the back of your phone has a very low profile and won’t add bulk to your phone.  I love the ease of attaching the phone on the ball mount on the dash and also removing it when I get out of the car.  The ball mount design also adds to its highly adjustable design.  Position your phone vertically, horizontally, and everything in between. Also, no matter how fast I turn or accelerate my phone stays put!

The beauty of the Steelie Mount is you can place it anywhere you choose.  I placed mine on the dash right in front of me.  It is not intrusive; it does not block my view of the speedometer and I can see the road perfectly even if I have to look at my phone when using Google Maps.

Also, if you have several vehicles, you can purchase just the Dash Ball Component Kit so you can mount your phone.  As a matter of fact, you can purchase ALL the parts individually just in case you ever upgrade to a new phone, get a new vehicle, etc.  Someone at Nite Ize was sure thinking about their customers!

The Nite Ize Steelie Car Mount comes with the following:
  • Magnetic Phone Socket – This part is made of a powerful neodymium magnet and a silicon center to provide grip and allows smooth glide to position in place with ease.  It attaches to the back of your phone using a 3M VHB adhesive pad. 
  • Ball Mount – This part is the high quality steel ball that attaches to the dash of your car with a 3M VHB adhesive.
  • Instructions and mounting prep materials

Bottom Line:  If you want to use, “The World’s Greatest Mobile Device Holder!”, look no further because the Nite Ize Steelie Car Mount Kit is it!  It is the least intrusive, most adjustable, and versatile.  Check out Nite Ize to purchase this mount and also discover all the innovative products that they have to offer.  The Steelie Car Mount Kit would make a favorite Christmas gift this year!
