Garbage- Don't buy it
This product is garbage. My phone falls off it continuously. You'll be digging your phone out from under the seat and probably run up the back of a truck! The suction cup works fine, the green bit fails miserably. It fell of my stationary computer 5 times in 2 hours. Hate to see what a bumpy road will do to its adhesion.
The suction cup works fine
Does not work despite all the claims
Rubbish - false advertising
As soon as I purchased this holder I had problems. I had no issue with the window suction cup, however the grip for the phone is like a sticky gel, not suction cups at all (they say "Acts like", so they are playing with words & images). The grip is that strong that when I tried to remove my Samsung phone, the arm came away from the ball joint. I then tried to remove the plate from the phone and it pulled the back off my phone. Also for the moment I had the phone mounted, parked in a car park, I tried to press a button and the phone moved. The ball joint is not secure enough to keep the phone in position. I purchased this from Big W, now reselling them from Global Shop Direct.
Hard plastic arms
Grip go suction pad does not work
Bought 2 and they will not stick to the windscreen, returned them, but no repcement has arrived ??
The green pad works fine, but the suction for the window kept falling off. very dissapointed. Have rung 3 times for replacemrnt but am not getting any where. they have the units, back
It doesn't work at all. The GripGo doesn't stick to either the plastic back of my Samsung or to my other iPhone for long at all and when the phone falls off, it usually lands at my feet where I least want it whilst driving. The suction cup isn't the best either, my $50 GPS sticks better than that. Don't waste your money on GripGo and just get a cheap NRMA or JB-Hifi phone holder.
Like the manoeuvrability of the arm.
Doesn't do its intended purpose and hold the phone!!!
This simply doesn't work.My Nexus 4 phone will not stay gripped more than few minutes.This product is bad and should be pulled off the market. Also the suction cap does not stick very well. This product is now landfill. How can they get away with such a joke- should have realized from the shonky ad.
doesnt stick in real world conditions
What a total waste of money!! Absolute [censored word removed]! It doesn't do what it claims to do and we bought the so-called original. Shame on you people for taking our money and not delivering on your word! I totally regret having bought this [censored word removed]. I have to give it to them though, they're advertising sucked me in.
People out there, do not buy!
The entire arm falls off the screen within minutes of driving, which is very dangerous. Also, washed the green "suction" and the phone still drops off just before the arm decides to drop off too.
Rubbish ... We should be given refunds..
Terrible product... A suction cup means it is meant to suction! Does not even stay on the window... This is a major product fault. Please don't waste your money... We purchased 4 ... They are all rubbish... I think the advertising is misleading and someone should address that. Poor product.
Don't buy this product, global direct should be ashamed of this product
Junk- do not waste your $$$$
Dodgy piece of junk. Worked great for about 4 weeks now it does not stick for more than 30 sec. Falls off when I'm driving. Have tried to rinse in water and then use, still no good.
Please don't waste your money on this. Notice the price of them has gone down because everyone has realised they are no good!
I liked it for the 1st month is worked great.
Only lasts 1 month. Useless piece of junk now- does not hold phone.
Lasted about long enough to not get a refund...
It was a great idea. We have different phones so a model specific cradle was out and the GripGo promised to stick like glue.
I paid $40 - plus shipping - to "buy-one-get-one-free" from GlobalShop.com.au. Of course, I then waited around 12 week for delivery as they were out of stock (probably because they were sending it all to the Big W).
A lot of people have complained that the suction cup wouldn't stick. This I didn't experience - my 2 GripGo's were easily fitted to the windscreen's of both of our cars and held firm. What I did find was t...hat the "elbow" joint was very poorly made. On on unit it repeatedly came loose and on the other it just wouldn't tighten. I couldn't face another 12 week wait for a replacement or refund so I simply found a suitable position and glued the joint - locking it in place permanently. The universal joint on the actual phone holding plate is a simple ball joint located in a plastic socket, tensioned by a C-clip. This is only just strong enough to hold an average smartphone in position. Any larger device (such as a GPS) will probably not remain firm for long. The "revolutionary" phone holding plate is very sticky - for a little while. It pulls the back off your phone if you aren't careful and requires two hands to carefully remove the device. Very quickly it transitions to that perfect stickiness but sadly this only lasted for a couple of short trips and just as quickly I found myself constantly scrabbling around in the drivers foot-well to find my $700 smartphone before it got crushed underfoot. I have yet to successfully "clean" the pad as directed but maybe I will have some success when I have more time.
dangerous!! dont buy
My phone wont stick to it,so when your on a long drive and need to use the gps u cant keep bending over to pick it up! Dangerous! I cant risk my daughters life by doing this,total fail of a product,save your money,dont ridk your families life by buying this product
GripGo - STAY AWAY!
Just received the GripGo and it is a total WASTE of money! Do NOT buy one! The suction mount does NOT work. It is a blatant waste of your hard earned $...STAY AWAY from the product. Please do NOT buy one...spend the money on any other product but this one!
Suction does not work!
Didn't work from day one, phone didn't stick and suction cap didn't stick to window. This product should be taken to consumer affairs . Slick ads sucked everyone in. Nothing like the ad. Foolishly threw box out so can't get refund, could just kick myself, must be stupid for trusting people, when will I learn .
Really bad product
This product would not stay attached to my windscreen. Unlike the ad on TV it would only stay attached for a short while and then would fall off. The final straw was when my husband's phone fell off and the screen broke. I contacted the seller and was told I could only have a replacement as my 30 days trial was up (even though I had sent an email Customer Support within the 30 days). I tried to explain that under Australian Consumer Law I have a right to a refund for a product that did not work. I called back again and got the same story. ...Why would I want to take the chance of having a second broken mobile??? After further discussion with a supervisor I finally convinced them to refund my money. The idea was good but that was all. It does not stick.
Doesn't Grip Like Advertised
It won't Hold My Galaxy ii, It Keeps Falling Off While Driving. Won't Stay On For More Than A Minute. It doesn't Matter How I Position It, It Just Keeps Falling Off, Usually Onto The Floor Where It Is Unreachable While Driving. Complete Waste Of Money, Not Recommended At All.
