Chapter in this post:
If you have followed my blog before, you might get over the report on the Quad Lock Case have stumbled. I still use this phone case - since the iPhone 5 - and I am completely satisfied. I am sure that it has saved my iPhone's life - or at least the display glass - from various crashes, especially since the case makes the iPhone much more "grippy" and it slips out of your hand less quickly.
Quad Lock itself advertises on the package with the slogan "The lightest, strongest & most secure mounting system" - I wouldn't be surprised if it's true!
A good three weeks ago I received an email from Quad Lock informing me that you can now pre-order the new case for the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus. Of course, I immediately followed the call and yesterday was finally able to hold the new Quad Lock Case in my hands - and of course test it in practice.
The "test" with the Quad Lock Case is actually done relatively quickly, because with the whole system of car holder, bicycle holder, upper arm holder and photo tripod, you only ever change the case when there is a new iPhone model. And I've known the system for years and I'm very satisfied with it.
The universal lock, which is built into all of these brackets, always fits on the click mechanism on the back of the iPhone case and can therefore be used again and again. To fix the iPhone in the holder, hold it rotated at a 45 degree angle, press it on the ring and rotate it 45 degrees into the correct position. This engages it and is locked in the holder.
Yesterday I received the Quad Lock cover for my iPhone 7 Plus and put it on straight away. And what can I say: It sticks to my car holder like a charm - I was able to test it out on a long journey. :) For this reason, the Quad Lock bracket remains my favorite with the iPhone 7 Plus.
Another advantage of the Quad Lock System is that the individual brackets are implemented in a very high quality. The bike holder is easy to use and sits securely on the handlebars. The upper arm band for joggers is comfortable to wear and here, too, the iPhone can be easily taken on and off with one hand. The same applies to the car holder ... but where are the disadvantages of the holder ???
"Where there is light, there is also shadow!" Is the saying always so beautiful. And so it is here too. A "disadvantage" that you have to accept with the Quad Lock System is the rather high price. The case alone costs around EUR 20 to 30. For a car owner you have to pay another 35 EUR and the sports armband also costs a good 30 EUR. If you want to buy all brackets from arm to bike, you quickly end up with over 100 EUR in the total price.
Personally, I don't see this as too expensive because the system is definitely worth the price. I would buy it again. Even if I only have to change the case myself now, as I've been using all the mounts for years.
A second "disadvantage" that should be noted is particularly noticeable for people who always order the new iPhone immediately. If you get the new iPhone, the right Quad Lock Case will usually only be available in 3-4 weeks. And this waiting time is always very difficult for me personally, because during this time I cannot use any of the Quad Lock brackets in the car, on the bike or on the photo tripod without the right case. I've moved on to using a cheap silicone case for my iPhone during this time until the Quad Lock Case is available. That way I get around the waiting time and my iPhone is reasonably safe if it falls down.
The Quad Lock Case itself is currently only available for the iPhone 7 with Quad Lock directly (unfortunately associated with expensive freight costs from Australia). You can find all the mountings and cases for older iPhone models here at Amazon.
Which mounts do you like to use for your iPhone? I look forward to inspirations in the comments!
