The Review

 

The Haweel car mount comes in a small box and the parts are in a plastic bag with a warranty card in the box.

The mount doesn’t come assembled, you’ll need to assemble it yourself and sadly there are no instructions. The is a flat spring loaded section that is the lock that attaches to the air vent, the main spring loaded mount and the bottom section or the feet.

You have to attach the main mount to the base by slipping the nut over the ball joint and then attaching the spring mount to the by tightening the screw nut.

Once the mount is assembled you can use it, it took a few tries for me to figure out how to use it without instructions but I got it.

The mount section is spring loaded and separates with slight force. The inner surface is padded with a non-slip rubber to make sure your phone stays in place. The spring is more than strong enough to hold your phone in place.

The spring section of the mount clips onto your air vent, you have to pull the spring loaded lock back and then attach it to the vent and let go on the lock to secure the mount to your vent. The bottom section with two feet just rests freely.

When you attach your phone the weight of it pushes the mount feet down and essentially gravity and the weight of the phone holds it stable.

The phone mount section can be moved and locked into place at an angle you like so you can turn it to face your position so you can see it better like for example if you were using it for GPS navigation. You can also rotate the mount to either landscape or portrait and it will stay secure.

Conclusion

 

The Haweel car mount is decent, it’s unique looking and it does hold your phone well and safely.

I’ve got a large phone, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and it was fine in the mount, so most any other phone should be fine.

The lack of instructions was annoying for sure, but I figured it out but then I am accustomed to gadgets like these, but someone who isn’t might have a problem getting it all put together and installing it correctly.

Pros:
+Holds phone secure
+Well made mount overall
+Simple installation
Cons:
-No instructions
-Must be assembled
