Well made (USA - great!). Just follow the instructions when setting up, so you don't over tighten anything. Very handy and works well, much better than any Chinese made "gorilla " products. I only had trouble getting to the reviews section and submitting my own, but it's a minor gripe. Great product for the price:)

This is a versatile product than can be used anywhere. It does require some light mechanical skills to adjust the prongs using the provided hex wrench. It has been used to dock my iPhone in the car.
After a few days of initial use, the prongs no longer gripped the phone and it became loose. Attempts to adjust the prongs to a snug fit failed. I ended up drilling a hole in the top prong and placed a nut and bolt to tighten the grip. This worked fine for a time, but then I left the stand in my car unused for a few weeks. When I went to use the stand, the phone flopped in the mount, as if the prongs had stretched their shape. It then dawned on me that that the high heat in the car had a physical effect on the plastic prong material.
As you can imagine, I was unhappy with the product performance, considering its cost. I then contacted customer support, and they confirmed that the plastic was heat sensitive. Importantly, they sent me a new set of prongs made with heat-resistant plastic. I'm happy to report that the new prongs work admirably! Thought Out is to be commended as a company that strives to continually improve their products.

Since I run a large monitor (without a built-in camera) off my MacBook Pro, I got tired of looking at the laptop to my left when I was on Skype and FaceTime calls. I thought of mounting a webcam to the monitor, but then figured my iPhone would work perfectly for this purpose. I needed a way to hold the phone just above the top of the monitor, and this stand works perfectly. As an added bonus I can use this in other situations, so rather than having a single-use webcam permanently mounted at my desk, I can take the phone and stand outside and sit on the patio during conference calls. Not a bad deal at all!
