How to Install a ProClip Custom Phone Holder
Smartphones are a useful part of everyday life. If you’re like me, you use yours daily. Not only for leisure but, to pay bills, order groceries, keep up with appointments, GPS and much more.
As a busy mom, safety is of utmost importance. I’m in the car often and safety is a top priority. That’s why I need a reliable phone holder to help keep me connected but, hands-free.
I need to be in contact with my kids, find my way around efficiently, and listen to my tunes.
It would make school pick-ups and drop-offs, driving to sports games, or just being a live-in chauffeur (part of the parenting game) much easier.

Darasak introduced me to a pretty awesome phone holder from ProClip USA. They specialize in making custom device holders that are specifically made for your type of car and phone. They have adjustable ones too!
Their custom mounting solutions will give you the perfect fit.
Which is exactly what I’m after.
Believe me, I’ve tried so many in my day and I could never find one that worked well.
It either didn’t suction properly (and left that ungodly suction cup stain on the windshield) or it would attach to the vent and shake like no tomorrow.
Let’s not forget that sometimes, they’d plain fall off.
The worst option was mounting it onto the dash. Then when it stopped working, the adhesive would be left behind.
It’s not a good look.
So, when I had the chance to get my hands on one, I was stoked.
For reference, I have a Huawei P30 Pro and a Dodge Challenger.
The perfect combo!
I’ll let you know exactly what we think about it but first, read on to see how easy it is to install a ProClip mount and standard phone holder.
I’ve enlisted Darasak to assist me, and I’ve added a ‘how-to install a ProClip phone holder’ video too!
Step 1: Remove Adhesive Stripe
This one is pretty straightforward but, always good to mention.
Peel off the adhesive strip backing. The mount is made to fit snugly and tightly but, this gives you a little extra support.
Also, if you do decide to remove it later on down the road, it won’t leave any residue.
I’m all about #moparornocar and it’s a bonus to know that the mount is an official Mopar licensed accessory.
Also, another win is that no drilling holes or dismantling of the dashboard are required. I’m all about that life.
Step 2: install proclip mount into dashboard seams
Firstly, I need to mention that the quality of both the mount and the phone holder is excellent.
It’s machine-tooled from high-grade ABS plastic. It’s not flimsy or thin, it’s sturdy. I also like how it matches the car. The end result looks as if it came with the vehicle and wasn’t just slapped on.
Secondly, it is INCREDIBLY easy to install. I thought we would need a prying tool to get in there but, nope. It went in with light pressure and the result was a tight and solid fit.
The top part of the clip will be inserted between the silver lining and seam just below the media screen.
The lower part of the clip will be inserted in between the silver lining and seam just above the lower controls.
Make sure you do this slowly and carefully.
Step 3: Remove the anchor from the phone holder
Using a large Phillips screwdriver, loosen the middle screw. The anchor should come loose from the phone holder.
Step 4: screw the anchor onto the clip
Align the anchor onto the clip. We chose to place it to the far right of the clip. You can choose to place the clip further to the left but, it may block your screen.
Use a smaller Phillips screwdriver to fasten the 4 screws. The anchor should be nice and tight and not wiggle.
Step 5: Measure the width of your phone
This standard phone holder is meant to hold your bare device. I have a super thin case on my device so I was able to get away with using a case.
First, spread out the arms of the phone holder. Leave the lower and upper screws a bit loose. Slide in your phone into the notch that holds your phone. Then squeeze the arms until your phone is secure and snug.
After that, slowly slide out the phone without moving the arms of the holder. Then tighten the two screws tightly.
Now you have the PERFECT FIT for your device. Woot!
Step 6: Attach phone holder to clip
Just when you think it can’t get any easier, it does.
The final step is to take the phone holder, align it with the anchor and clip. Then tighten the center screw until secure.
Now you’re ready to use your new custom phone holder!

So what do I think?
Well, if you haven’t guessed?
I LOVE IT.
After having used it extensively for the last month and a half, I can say that it is a keeper. The set up is secure, easy to use, and most importantly–it’s STABLE.
That was my biggest complaint with other device holders. I also like the position of where the phone is. It makes it easier to access and I don’t have to lean to get to it.

Overall, I am incredibly happy with the angled mount and phone holder.
As a busy mom, it helps to keep me on-the-go and that is priceless.
I don’t worry about losing my phone when I hit a bump, have it bounce around or out of reach.
With that said, now I have my eye on the ProClip mount and holder for my Jeep Wrangler because I know they’re solid.
