Bracketron MobileDock Dash Mount (photos)

Bracketron's MobileDock universal dashboard-mounting cradle sticks to nearly any hard surface and holds nearly any phone, but the way it does so is a bit unconventional.

Bracketron MobileDock

Bracketron's MobileDock is a universal dashboard- and windshield-mounting cradle for most mobile phones and smartphones. It sticks to nearly any hard surface and holds nearly any phone, but the way it does so is a bit unconventional.

Temporbond stick dot

At the center of the phone-mounting cradle is a tacky dot made of a material called Temporbond. This sticky material allows the MobileDock to hold objects in place without the need for mechanical arms.

Lever lock suction cup

At its base is a suction cup that locks into place, not unlike a conventional GPS windshield mount.

Temporbond suction cup

However, the MobileDock's suction cup is also made of the sticky Temporbond material, giving it the capability to stick to nearly any hard surface. This means that it can attach to a vehicle's dashboard without the need for a permanent adhesive mounting disk.

Sticks to anything

We got the MobileDock to stick quite securely to drywall. Plus, it came off without damaging the surface.

Ball joint

The dock attaches to the base with a single ball joint at the top of a plastic neck. This gives users plenty of freedom in positioning their handset.

Securely grips

We tested the stick dot's capability to hold a handset in place by suspending a variety of devices from the cradle. Here, we have an iPod Touch holding on for dear life.

High-G testing

Satisfied that the MobileDock would hold our phone's weight, we took to swinging it around to test high-G grip. In the case of the Motorola Droid, the battery cover let go before the stick dot did. Impressive.
