Serves its purpose
I really like this product. It serves its purpose very well. The sticky part gets a little too sticky after a while. But as to all other things in today's world, it has a shelf life. I used it on the daily but after a while, it slowly started falling apart. Buying another today, if I can find one.
I have to start by saying that consumers are stupid. All the negative comments here are due to people not having any common sense.
Yes! The suction cup sticks to the windshield *very well*! If yours is falling off, guess what? Your windshield is dirty! Learn how to clean glass. It really isn't that hard. Don't use your laziness as a way to blame others and claim warranty. Clean your windshield properly! If you use your GPS with the suction cup that came with it, it'll likely fall off too because your windshield is dirty!
The green pad is...super sticky! I'd like to say *too* sticky, but after you learn your trick to remove your device, it's not so bad. You do have to use *both* hands. For this reason, I only *place* my phone on it, not put it on and rub it in. Still, I need to use both hands. From time to time, the green pad does get dirty, and you'll need to take it inside to wash. Takes no time at all! You also have to remember that your phone should be clean too, otherwise the goo sticks to the dirt on your phone and not your phone itself. Common sense guys...common sense. The goo sticks better to flat surfaces and not as good for textured...because there's less surface area to stick to. Again, common sense. I've only had one product that this didn't stick well to and I used a lot of devices.
Surprised by all the other reviews.
I've found it very sturdy and sticky for phones with flat backs. Not so good for textured phones.
Still going strong for more than 2 years.
I like the solid arm mount too. Much better than those flexi arms which tend to break over time.
Great until ...
I used it for a year and then it became 'too sticky', the goo came off on my phone. But for $10 I guess that is a good deal. I am buying another one at Walgreen's today. My wife also got one and hers lasted about 9 months. We still love them.
very convenient and easy to use, I was able to 'clean' it several times and it kept working
eventually it got 'too sticky', after 9-12 months
Grip n So So!!!
I recently purchased the Grip n Go in car mobile phone holder, it's the one shown on TV where the man sticks his phone on it and hangs it out the window. Honestly I don't know why his phone looked like it was super glued on but I've found it to be not so grippy and would never trust it on a rough dirt road or with anything heavier than a small phone. I am disappointed with this product, I just thought it would have much more grip especially for bigger products like my GPS but that's TV magic for you, it's never as good as it seems on TV .
It's ok on smooth roads with light objects.
Not very grippy which is the whole point.
I received this item a short while ago. 2 gripgo's from eBay for less then $20 combined.
I tested this bad boy as soon as it arrived, and boy was I impressed.
The suction cup is sturdy and can support my samsung galaxy s3 without any issue at all. The green sticky suction cup bit adhears to my phone like superglue. (I was able to lift my befside table with just the green bit, without it disconnecting)
Which can be an issue, but once you refine your technique, you won't have any issues disconnecting. If anything, this is a huge plus in my ...
Have used this for months, holds my iPad without falling off on our [censored word removed] roads. Just got to make sure you get the real deal not the cheap rip offs. The suction cap needs to be wet for it to stick properly but that's like most caps these days. Great product and would easily recommend.
Gripped my iPad no problem
Just as advertised!
I was dubious, but since my Shamwow works as advertised, and the stupid Schticky, I thought for a few bucks I couldn't lose. Straight out of the box the suction cup with the breather holes was impressive and sturdy. I've had FOUR cheap phone holders melt and deform to the point where the suction cup didn't work at all anymore, but this design appears to get around that problem.. time will tell.
I tested the grip before mounting it, and my stock iPhone 4 stuck to it, I shook it, and it stayed there. I pulled it off with minimal effort and i'm g...
It actually works with the right phone
I first saw this on TV with those Teleshopping ads. I didnt think much of it at first because the TV ads really have these strange way of saying you pay in 4 payments.
I thought I wonder if anyone else sells it & if they do how much. It turns out that one of most common sites in the world sells one and you guessed it - ebay !
For $7 & a bit Australian dollars inc postage & packageing you get a original grip go.
I did think at first its a bit cheap & maybe its a clone or re-make. However when it came it was in its original packageing w...ith the Grip Go as seen on TV green box. As far as quality goes its good & the only complaint about it is that it sticks a little too well. If you got a phone for example that has a removeable cover that comes off easy then this may not be for you. I don't know what it means in the book about looseing its stick after time because as far as I can see it sticks like glue. A little too well in some situations.
It really grips and off you go...
...this is a really good cradle. It does what it promises and the arm is very flexible in all directions. There is no problem with the suction to the windscreen (like with some other products, where the suction cap cannot hold the device) and the surface, that holds the mobile phone, is incredibly strong. I bought one and got the second one free and my partner, who is traveling long distances, constantly needs a proper, functioning, reliable mobile phone cradle. He is amazed at this product. So, thumbs up from us....
a product, that really works
Questions & Answers
How do I make the green surface it sticky again?
Mine and my partners sticky pad is so sticky it cannot be used.. I have cleaned them with no success... How do I fix this?
Throw it out...that's what I did as it became useless and left do much residue in my phone...
This is a very bad product, I bought two, both are now in the bin. there are good phone holders out there online that give you value for your money, and have better solutions than that horrible stick pad, give GRIPGO a BIG MISS. Good luck C.J
It would seem that there is no easy way to contact the company directly for warranty. Other than contacting a reseller, is there a phone or email contact in Australia? Our 2 gripgos, have a manufacturing defect, the green sticky film has not been applied flat, causing a ridge in the centre, thus making the phone to slightly stand away from the surface. One is better than the other and sticks quite well for an hour or so, the other, is only minutes, if that. This may be the cause of other peoples problems...? i would like to try the direct distributor for replacement, rather than going through an on line shop, with little success.
I purchased mine from Global Shop Direct and that is where I have returned them for a refund. I called them after having no luck with the on-line chat. Not sure who the distributer is if not them - sorry.
Hi Bevan, so far I haven't had much luck in contacting the online seller, so trying other methods of contact. Bit of a pity there is a problem, my step daughter and husband find them very good and we compared them, the green surface on theirs are perfectly flat, ours arn't.
Being made in China, I think the quality control has a lot to be desired. I also think that as there is so many comments, either very good or very bad, that this surface problem is probably the main problem. Also, the screen cleanliness seems to have a lot to do with the suction to the screen. Our same unit, sticks really well to one of our cars, and falls off the screen if it is slightly dirty, or has that "haze" that screens seem to get after a while. Comes off easy with window cleaner.
Anyway, back to contacting the supplier.
