I compared several phone mounts and decided to try out the Quad Lock handlebar mount. Installation was a breeze with a just few twists of the hex wrench. I chose to mount the extender as well to get my phone in the position I wanted, but it’s optional. Snapping the phone in and out is quick too, and it seems plenty secure.June 16, 2019 at 5:44 am #5522
Reporting back after close to a month and I’ve had no issues. The quad lock mount is super stable so there’s no visibility/vibiness on the display and I have no worries about losing my phone. I did have to add a component called a poncho for wetter days, and it’s kept my phone dry so far. Even with the poncho on the touchscreen still works, but I t’s kind of a pain to pull it off the phone when you’re done with it.July 22, 2019 at 12:51 am #6092DiegoParticipant
Does this require its own case or are you able to snap any case onto it?July 22, 2019 at 9:07 am #6094kungfupouletParticipant
It does require a specific case for your phone. They also sell a universal case.
Some ppl have reported that their iPhone’s camera got broken after a certain period of use. It apparently messes up the gyro used for camera stabilisation in our phones. iPhone X/Xs/Xr are concerned so far.July 27, 2019 at 12:29 am #6170koolkevboParticipant
I used the Quad Lock case and mount on a recent trip to Japan where I rented Groms with a friend and toured from Tokyo to Nagoya and back. Was really great. I had an iPhone X at the time.
In regards to kungfupoulet, I had one issue where my phone froze up and was unresponsive for a while. I think it might have had something to do with the rain and the -2 degrees and snow for much of that day. Otherwise it was fantastic.
Just today I received my universal sticker thing and I’ve stuck it to my Oneplus 7 pro and will be using it on the bike tonight and tomorrow. Yolo…July 27, 2019 at 1:05 am #6171
I dug through reviews before deciding on the quad lock and I never came across anything about damage to the camera, and since this system doesn’t use magnets there’s no way it interferes or messes up the gyro. Maybe you’re thinking of a different case. I’ve used this thing since May and it’s been so great we’ve put on one my wife’s bike, and use it in the car too.
@koolkevbo: I bought their phone poncho for when riding in the rain and still needing directions, and so far it’s kept my phone nice and dry in Seattle.July 27, 2019 at 1:06 am #6172
You can get a universal adaptor to adhere to your current phone case if you don’t want to swap it out.

Yeah I considered having it 90 degrees but I was being petty and wanted to hide the big blue lever when my phone was attached. However, I see that they sell replacement levers in black and red so I’m going to replace mine soon and flip it.April 14, 2021 at 9:29 pm #34319YoughsDParticipant
Does anybody know if the fork stem version compatible with the vitpilen?April 14, 2021 at 10:52 pm #34320Satur9Participant
. Some mounts transfer vibration to the phone. Which breaks the ois on cameras. It’s not specific to quad lock many mounts do it. It seems I phone cameras are more susceptible especially on thumpers. having a rubber mounted phone mount helps.
