Quad Lock case for the iPhone 7/7 Plus - finally arrived!

The Quad Lock Case and the matching packaging - now available for the iPhone 7 Plus!

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!

Quad Lock Case available for iPhone 7

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 "new" Quad Lock in the test ... everything was great as before!

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 patented lock of the Quad Lock System.

The patented lock of the Quad Lock System.

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.

The click lock on the case allows you to attach the same case to different brackets - the best feature of the Quad Lock system!

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 ???

The "bad" thing about the Quad Lock Case

"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.

The case for the iPhone 7 Plus is also very elegant. Sure there are thinner cases, but the iPhone in the Quad Lock case can withstand "heavy" falls.

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!

    Hello Sir Apfelot! A very good and detailed article! But wouldn't it be better to link to the EU shop than to the actual shop? quadlockcase.com indicates that they do not deliver to Germany and then suggest quadlockcase.eu. Just an idea ... otherwise great blog! Have a look!

    • Sir Apfelot says:

      Hello Richard! A good hint. I would change it, but currently the only thing I get on the eu side is "Server not reachable". I'll check again tomorrow. And I ordered the iPhone 7 Plus case directly from the .com site. It was also shipped direct from Australia. And thanks for the praise! I am pleased. :)

    The multitude of brackets are great, everyone has to decide for themselves to what extent this makes sense.

    In my opinion, the vehicle mount for the windshield is only an alternative solution for occasional use. I consider a magnet holder or a magnet to be the better option for frequent use. I also see a disadvantage in the fact that the holder is not level and you cannot type properly when it is on the table, for example when using it as a calculator.

    The advantage is certainly to be seen in the large number of mounts such as joggers and cyclists, where I wonder whether the mount is really useful for cyclists.If the iPhone is used as a navigation system or bike computer, this will lead to problems relatively quickly because the battery runs out .

    Without a protective cover, I would no longer use my iPhone, which one ultimately depends on personal criteria.

    • Sir Apfelot says:

      Hi Michael! Because of the wobbling on the table, I can calm you down. I have the iPhone 7 Plus, which would actually be particularly vulnerable (because of its size and leverage), but even that doesn't wobble on a smooth surface when typing. Personally, I don't think the magnetic holders are that good, because they always "require" a metal plate on the iPhone ... and then their hold is probably not sufficient for a bicycle holder. But anyone who is only on the move in the car will certainly get along well with a magnetic holder.
      And the problem with the battery when navigating: the iPhone has lasted more than 3 hours. And when I do go on a longer bike tour, I just hang it on a power bank that I have in a frame bag on the bike. You can then drive it for 2 days. :)

    Where do you get this holder from ... iPhone 7 plus

    • Sir Apfelot says:

      Hello Wolfgang! For the iPhone 7 Plus you can use the case buy here at amazon. In addition to the case, you also need the mounts that are of interest to you: car mount, bike mount, bracelet or whatever you need. :)

    Hello, Does this bracket fit with a Headshock or Fatty fork, have this rebound lever up there on the handlebar stem (handlebar tube) ... how high is this blue "cable"? greeting

    • Sir Apfelot says:

      Hi Arndt! Unfortunately I don't have a bike anymore (a very strange condition!) ... but I would say from memory that the Dinf sticks out approx. 2-3 cm from the handlebar. This is done because you have to lift this blue ring with your fingers to loosen the lock. I hope this helps you. Otherwise I'll have a look tomorrow. I still have the bracket somewhere in the basement ... for the next bike! :)
