iPhone addicts can now use their phones in every conceivable place thanks to a clever new multipurpose mounting system, Quad Lock.
Designed by the Aussie makers of the hugely successful Opena Case (www.openacase.com), Quad Lock allows iPhone users hands free access to their phones in cars, boats, bikes, kitchens, offices… anywhere really…. by simply applying the protective case. Better yet, Quad Lock even offers users the option to view their iPhone in portrait or landscape position.
The Quad Lock Case is ultra slim and made from a super tough polycarbonate plastic and is compatible with Apple and other 3rd party accessories – perfect for everyday use.
The idea came to Melbourne Entrepreneurs Rob Ward and Chris Peters after becoming frustrated by detaching and reattaching their iPhones from various cradles depending on where they were using it.
“Sure there’s car mounts, wall mounts, bike mounts and many more, but most require you to remove your phone from your everyday case and insert your iPhone into another cradle system only to have to remove it from the cradle and replace your case when you’re done. The alternatives are the hold-anything style cradles that fit everything but fit nothing well,” says Designer turned entrepreneur, Chris Peters.
The result? A smart and secure case-based mounting system that allows you to use your iPhone handsfree everywhere.
“If you’re like us you use your iPhone as a SatNav while driving, a trip computer while cycling, a list while shopping, a score card while golfing, an alarm clock while sleeping, a recipe book while cooking, a GPS while boating, a calendar while at the office and we even sometimes make a phone call,” says Ward.
The Quad Lock Mounts are available in 2 separate models that are both compatible with the Quad Lock Case.
Quad Lock ST Mount
The Quad Lock ST Mount is best for applications like in the car, boat, office or kitchen wall. The ST Mount works with a single hand press and twist motion.
Quad Lock Pro Mount
The Quad Lock Pro Mount offers the highest level of security for your iPhone and is best suited to rigorous applications such as cycling. The Pro Mount works similar to the ST version but has extra security added by a spring locking collar that must be pushed down to unlock the case.
