Clip-N-Clamp Multipurpose Holder Review and Giveaway

I received this product for free to facilitate this review.

Clip-N-Clamp is a multipurpose holder that allows one to use cell phones, smart phones, cameras, MP3 music players, GPS, flashlights, and other small hand held devices hands-free. It is basically a heavy duty clip with a 12 inch long adjustable arm on it that you can move and rotate 360 degrees to your needed position. The clamp grips the surface tightly with silicone ends so to not mark up furniture or whatever stable, safe location you have clipped it to, up to an inch thick. This is great for use in your car, van, truck home, kitchen, workshop, office, work, stroller, bicycle, motorcycle, boat, or anywhere else you can think to use it. It comes with one Phone Clip, one Velcro Disk Clip and one Camera Clip.

The Phone Clip works with most smart/cell phones (iPhone, Gallaxy III, etc.) and is a great way to take hands-free calls or hands free pictures with your camera phone. You can clip it somewhere around your center console (usually cupholders, storage compartments, or console walls will do). Simply pull apart the side brackets of the Phone Clip and slide your smart/cell phone inside the clip. My phone was a bit too small so I need to get extra Phone Clip pads. I did try the Phone Clip on my Magellan GPS and I could fit it on one side of it if I turned the clip the opposite way. I liked that it worked this way, but didn't know how long it would last in that position because it was placing a lot of stress on the band that was being stretched in the back of the clip. I might play it safe and use a Velcro Disk Clip instead for my GPS, but I wanted to at least give it a try. I wish they had a wider clip for this purpose.

The Camera Clip is great for point & shoot cameras as a clip on tripod of sorts. My Flip Video Recorder Camera and my digital camera both use the screw on Camera Clip because they both have the handy dandy screw threading on the bottom to mount it to different things. It holds the camera and my Flip Video steady so that I can take pictures for my blog or do some vlogging. You want to tighten the Camera Clip with the thumbwheel as you don't want to loosen the screw on the Clip-on. For larger cameras, such as DSLR, or camcorder, it is recommended that you use the Pro Camera Clip which I didn't receive, but is included with the Mini Clip-N-Clamp.

The Velcro Disk Clip is the most versatile of the clips because you can use it for anything else that the Clip-N-Clamp would actually hold. Just slap the adhesive backed Velcro loop pads onto the back of your device, attach the Velcro Disk Clip to the Clip-N-Clamp, put the Velcro hook and loop pieces together and adjust the Flexarm as needed.

I love the versatility of this multipurpose holder. It helps me so much with my blogging and vlogging. It also is great to take on trips to use with our GPS and MP3 player. I love the hands-free phone option too. The only thing I had trouble with was sometimes finding something it would clip to (up to an inch thick). My kitchen counters and table are too thick for it to clip to. Also the clamp is really hard to open up to clamp it to something, but once it is clamped it is really tight. This is altogether a great product.

You can purchase the Clip-N-Clamp for $24.95.

Prize: 1 winner will win a Clip-N-Clamp.
