Clingo Universal Vent Mount – Video


The vent mount from Clingo is a novel and unique new solution to car mounting. Featuring a reusable sticky pad the Clingo can be used to mount practically any smartphone, PDA or sat-nav device. The ball and socket joint provide 360 degree tilt viewing angles so you can find the perfect position to suit your driving style. Incredibly easy to install – the Clingo Vent Mount will just clip to practically any car air conditioning vent

The unique sticky pad provides the ability to securely fix a unit to the mount whilst allowing speedy removal – leaving absolutely no residue on the back of your device.
