Bracketron Mi-T Grip

The Good The Bracketron Mi-T Grip Dash Mount's tacky suction cup mount holds securely to dashboard materials. Gripping claw holds phone tightly. Almost no shake when device is locked in place.

The Bad The MSRP should probably be about $10 lower. Inserting or removing a phone single-handedly is tricky.

The Bottom Line The Bracketron Mi-T Grip is (both metaphorically and literally) a solid smartphone mount for users who prefer dashboard placement.

Dashboard mount mightily grips your phone

Editors' note: Portions of this review text also appear in our evaluation of the TackForm C-Fit, since that device and the Bracketron Mi-T Grip are almost identical.

They all may look more or less the same, but not all smartphone suction cup mounts are created equal. Some are more flexible, more articulated, or offer a longer reach. Others, like the Bracketron Mi-T Grip, place a heavier emphasis on strength and stability -- when it gets its grip on your phone, it'll take more than a casual bump to knock the handset loose.

The Mi-T Grip has only one point of articulation, at the ball joint where the gripping claw meets the mounting arm. So, care must be taken to properly orient the base when locating the Grip. Additionally, the short, angled mounting arm may place the Mi-T Grip outside of the driver's reach when windshield-mounting on vehicles with steeply raked glass. On the other hand, with only one articulation point and a short arm, the Grip is quite stable, exhibiting none of the shakiness and vibration that longer, more flexible mounts do. However, the Mi-T Grip perhaps performs best when it's not stuck to your windshield.
