After years of suffering with the RAM-X system, I discovered the Quadlock case system in 2019.
RAM-X was interfering with the volume on my iPhones. The X arms kept pushing on the buttons on my 6s and 8 Plus.
When I saw the Quadlock ad, I was curious about the mount design. They initially only offered a motorcycle mount with a round handlebar attachment meant for bicycles and some motorcycles. A little later, they introduced the RAM ball mount and as i already had RAM brackets with balls installed on my Connie for use with my GoPro (and the RAM-X mount), I decided to order one.
I had to order the phone case matching my model. The Quadlock phone case is about the same size as the Otterbox case I had for my 8 Plus and the recessed connector hole does not add much to the case thickness -you don’t really notice the difference. It is also very sturdy and gives good protection to my iphone.
Attaching the phone to the mount is a simple process. You align the case hole with the mount’s connector and twist it. The phone locks into place and, trust me, it’s sturdy. I have used it from July to October 2019 in bumpy roads, hitting potholes, over vibrating surfaces (grooved pavement) and the thing simply won’t budge. Unmounting the phone is simple: press on the blue locking tab, twist the phone and it comes off.
Having experienced such good performance from the bike mount, I decided to also get the car mount. You can get it with an induction charging option, but I took the regular version. It can mount to your windshield via its suction cup system, but Quadlock also provides a 3M adhesive backed disc you can use to mount it on your dash. I prefer the dash option, in my case it lets me check who’s calling while keeping my eyes level with the road.
In the future, I’ll probably also get a mount for my bicycle and their sports armband mount for other activities. Be warned, the stuff isn’t cheap, but it’s a quality build.
