The Clckr stand measures 9.5x3cm and as it is ‘Universal’ will stick to the back of most phones. If your phone has a glass back then follow the specific instructions in the small instruction booklet that is stuck to the card that holds the Grip when it first arrives.
While most of us are adept at holding our phones in certain conditions like cold or wet the phone becomes more slippery and sods law says even if you have a case protecting the sides it will land on its face and it will also find something jutting out so that would mean a damaged screen.
The main purpose of a grip is that the single hand can not only grip and hold the phone but also leave at least your thumb clear to text or carry out other things on the phone.
As a grip the 9.5cm length is used as a single strip with the fingers placed between the upper and lower layers, however when in Stand mode it rises to become three lengths 1.5cm from the base, 5cm in the central area and 3cm near the top these hinge in different ways and form a prop to allow you to rest the phone on a flat surface and on other protrusions in one case it propped the phone on a 2cm horizontal outcrop allowing me to have both hands free while watching a video that had my hands available for pen and paper.
Be sure you have the Grip in the correct position as while the instructions say ‘can only stick a couple of times’ I would be unhappy about moving it at all once applied.
I would suggest that you leave the plastic backing sheet in place until the last moment.
While the Grip can be used as a stand in both portrait and landscape – and indeed hanging – the positions shown to fit the grip does vary according to portrait and landscape.
At the time of publication the Clckr Universal Phone Grip and Stand is available from Amazon for just £12.99.
