(tl;dr - Do not buy this if you live in a climate that regularly gets below 40F in the winter. The closing mechanism will break)
I've owned this for about a year and a half now, and it's already time for a new mount. When it gets below freezing the "claw" closing mechanism becomes incredibly stiff and makes it very difficult to close. When you put that much pressure on it -- the teeth "skip" and once it skips it's impossible to reset the teeth back to their original offset. The result is that it holds your phone off-center. This honestly wasn't a big deal the first or second time -- but now it's skipped about three times and it's starting to become a functional issue. It's so off center now that the "feet" at the bottom interfere with the charging cable. One or two more times it will not be able to hold the phone anymore.
I do not drive very often, so for your average person I would except it to last one to two winters in a northern climate. I personally haven't had the issues others are reporting -- and if I was in a warm climate would probably be satisfied.
this thing sucks
Glad I checked the comments before joining haha, was already iffy with the $7.00 shipping :/
Can't believe they photoshopped it instead of taking an actual picture...
Well, I hope they have fixed this product since the one I bought. Otherwise expect the post to break and the jaws to warp.

I totally agree. Same thing happened to mine. The build quality is suspect

While preparing the order for shipment our vendor noticed that a large portion of the units were not in sellable conditions.

This product is a disaster. The band that holds the stand to the vent quickly stops working. It also has stability issues. Do not buy this product!

You know I get massdrop is a business and I suppose certain items aren't available everywhere. However this seems like a stupid thing to do just to make an extra buck or two on people who don't research the pricing.

I actually want this product but I'd rather buy it from a retailer or amazon than wait months to save $1.35. Massdrop please find a way to make the shipping price less ridiculous. Why is shipping $7 for this hunk of plastic but $2.75 for this media player at 250% retail value or 400% massdrop price. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/xduoo-x2-digital-audio-player?referer=THKN4C

Try shipping overseas, we're paying $22...

lol wow.
This product does not react well to heat it seems. I own 2 of these and the one in my wife's car is fine (stored in the garage) but mine had the clamp warp into a y shape until it wouldn't hold on to anything (I then widened it until it was grabbing two vent strakes, warping them in the process) and then the post finally broke.
WacoCatbox
I had two and the support clamp simply snapped of making the entire unit Useless. I agree. BUYERS YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
I tried one of these. It's locking jaws were so soft they snapped in two days. This product is crap!

Aside from the breaking others have mentioned being a concern, I'd also like to note that if being used for navigation where you probably don't sleep your phone, they get hot. In the summer, this would be great, as your phone would be right up against cool air. What about in the winter, though, when there will be warm air blasting it? An air-vent mount for a phone just doesn't sound that safe in the long run, to me.
Mine appears to have broken in exactly the same way that others are experiencing. It's a shame I really liked the thing, but 4 months is too short a lifespan for any product that isn't food.

Unfortunate for a product to break so soon. Looked like a good one too. I was considering buying one.
Have you thought about using some sort of plastic weld on it? I know it sounds silly, but if you're going to throw it out anyways may as well spend $5 on JB Plastic weld and see if you can fix it. I wouldn't doubt if you got at least another year out of it before it breaks again.
15$ to ship to Canada!
broke vent in my sprinter van not happy
Ok, this is getting ridiculous. This item is $19.43 on Amazon right now. What's the point of waiting a month for this drop?

Fits in 1 of 5 car vents I tried it in. does not hold my samsung s6 in place while driving over horrible city streets. Sometimes stays in the cradle sometimes falls out. Unacceptable. Buy something else.
