ARMOR-X One-Lock Air Vent Car Mount – 48% off

Let’s face it. When we drive, we still need our phones, whether for directions or taking an important call. But a hands-free headset doesn’t eliminate fumbling for our phones to dial the number or enter the address. To keep the phone in sight and out of hand, you’ll want a mount like this one from ARMOR-X.

It clips right into your car’s air vent, with 360-degree rotation, so you can set it and forget it. Its click, lock and release feature makes it dead-easy to use, and silicon rubber on the vent clamp lets you avoid scratching up your car. Plus, it’s compatible with pretty much any smartphone. It’s a great addition to any automobile.
