I think there are times that we all wish we could find a way to secure our phone or portable device somewhere, maybe secure it to the windshield for turn by turn GPS navigation, maybe secure our device to the outside of the shower door for example, now you can with a product called Sticko.
It is very simple to use, just attach one side of the suction cups to the phone or portable device, and the other to a smooth surface that you want it to adhere to. While the product ensures it can hold up to 2 kilograms or about 4.4 pounds of a hanging product, do keep this in mind that it is suction cups, and suction cups can fail. I point this out now because, while my review covers some of what it does do, I can’t know what it won’t do if that makes sense. Just use caution deciding how and where you will be using this is all I can recommend.
So how did I test it? Two different ways. First I attached the Sticko Suction Cups to the phone itself, and then to the side of my refrigerator in the kitchen, to simulate if I was watching a show on Netflix or Amazon Prime for example. Then I tried using it with my case for my phone. The Sticko product would not directly adhere to my phone initially. After applying one of the clear stickers to the back of the case, and the Sticko product to that, did I reattach it to the refrigerator once again, and it held then as well.
The 2 included stickers with each package you buy will allow you to use it on surfaces that will not hold a suction cup. Example might be in your car, if you have a fabric style dash, or something like that, you can place one of these stickers on that, and the suction cup will adhere to the other side of the clear sticker.
This little gadget it easy to keep with you on your keyring, or with the included earphone jack adapter, to keep it with your phone or device all the time. It can be used for a variety of different things, like hanging a shirt up from a mirror while you are on vacation, you can use it as a portable stand for your device to see it at an angle. You can use it to keep track of your keys by hanging them right next to the door, what creative ways do you think you could use them for?
Again, I am fearful, that with weather changes, and over time itself, that it might not hold as strong as it should, so again, please use caution with what you decide to use it on. I will give it a shot next time I take my phone in the car, and see how it works there, and update the review accordingly.
So where can you grab one for yourself?, grab it from Amazon here. Might make a unique and inexpensive gift idea too, for a friend, co-worker or boss. Be sure to check them out on Facebook here as well.
