One lucky reader will win this Clingo universal mount! Read on for details. 

The Clingo universal car phone mount is one of those products that does what it says "on the tin." I admit, when I saw the Clingo products in the CrackBerry Store, I was skeptical. My personal Torch 9800 is a fairly heavy device. There was no way that sticky green goop was going to hold my phone. Oh, how wrong I was.

In some ways, this Clingo mount is like many others. The suction cup strongly, and I mean strongly, holds the mount to a windshield. Included is a puck that can be mounted to the dash if you prefer that mounting option. There is an arm that can be maneuvered and locked into several positions. It is there that the similarities end.

Attached at the end of the arm is what I call the "sticky pad." Once your smartphone is attached to this pad, it's not going anywhere. The stickiness was even strong enough to hold my BlackBerry PlayBook, considerably heavier than any smartphone. The car phone mount is not intended for that amount of weight, so I don't recommend you try it. The pad attaches to the arm via a ball joint, giving the mount a huge degree of freedom when positioning your phone "just right."

Allsop, the company that developed the technology, won't say just how the green pad remains sticky use after use after use. Even after the pad loses its stickiness, a quick cleaning brings it back to life. The manufacturer recommends mild soap and water, though I've read elsewhere that wet tissues and even disinfecting wipes may prove useful. Take care when using chemicals around these pads, some solvents will destroy the pad's effectiveness. Once cleaned and dried, the pad sticks just like new.

When removing the device from the pad, it is very important that you peel the device from the pad rather than attempt to pull it off. And that's a rather interesting tidbit. You see, that's one of the keys to how Geckos scale walls. Lately, Science has been learning amazing things about these creatures. Did you know that the hairs on the Gecko's feet actually form a molecular attraction (called van der Walls force) with the surface they're climbing? And did you know that scientists have managed to recreate this biological effect using man-made materials?

Now, I'm not saying the Clingo universal car phone mount is made from Gecko technology. I don't know that for sure. What I do know is that once attached to that sticky pad, your smartphone isn't going anywhere until you want it to.

Contest: Want to get one of these for free from ShopCrackBerry.com? Just leave a comment to this review and tell us just what would stick to your Clingo universal mount. Contest ends this Sunday at midnight PST. Please only leave a single comment. One lucky winner will have this device shipped directly from ShopCrackBerry.com.

ruvcan

cinder0008

Been trying forever to win a car mount! Would love this for my Torch!

NetworkGuy

I have one of these already. They work great but the arm is a little long and amplifies any vibration you may get while going over some bumps. It's not a deal-breaker however. They are totally worth it..

blackmoe

I'd love one and then I can set my Gecko free.

alegs

Hands free would be great in my Van!

BaconMunch

I've been contemplating a car mount for my phone. Sure would like to win one :)

jonahz

I would love this - I wonder if you can put an iPod and a Blackberry on it at the same time (have the mount horizontal and stick them both vertically). That would be perfect for in my car!

cjwo57

This would be great for my Blackberry Tour--looks very useful.

tekken

hoping my bold 9700 (soon to be bold 9900!!) will stick with this :D

ajamu06

I can use this with my current BlackBerry AND my new one that I'm waiting impatiently for.

DDS0728

shankeith

elmackpapa

My windshield. Haven't found an effective car mount where the suction cup to the windshield doesn't stop working after about 6 months.

mheisen

Looks really useful!

crashberry

Freebies are always good

Xader

Finally, a mount that will allow me to use any device without constantly switching plates, clamps, what-have-you..

camera531

Does it come with release dates for the 9850/9860!?

fragabas1

for now my 9800 until Big Red is out with the 9900.

bobaloo

Would love to win this. And while I'd like to stick my ever-reliable Stormy 9530 to this mount, I'll probably just end up using it to catch all the shattered hopes and dreams of all the lost contests of yesteryear.

Lifestyles

i'm tired of using the cheap mounts from eBay... I will give it a good home

StaticFX

VERY COOL!!! Would love one!!!

heroldc

Please please please!!!!!!

98hundred

I would definately use it to hold up my torch:) I'm at my PC often, picture this, putting it on my desk holding up my phone while I'm on crackberry;) on my pc, and need my phone infront of me readily available;) also to hold up my phone while driving, to use maps:)

lessdoumas

I want one for my Bold 9700 pleeeaaaase!

DeniseK1

I'd stick my Bold 9700 to it - frequently! Gladly!

Jassal2008

i dont know how to say tnhysi but why

steveg22

a great replacement for my existing mount, would love to win,

papped

Would slap my 9650 on one of these

Camulus

Interesting. Would like to give this a go

mok444

Being a broke college student this could really help me out :)

1425956

I have been looking for a good vehicle mount! I'll have to check this out!

poolrookie78

Hahaha ya I'd stick everything to it

BarracudaBob

This would be a lot more convenient than leaving my phone in the console and glancing down now and then.

TheStrider

Would love to try to stick all my various gadgets to it. :)

MattBerry08

My 9650 would love it, as my future 9930 would as well!

adrenaline_x

I would love on of these.. My old car kit broke.. Stupid Junk from walmart.

SDBB_kick

Call me old school, but I would use this in my car to hold my BB. I use my BB for nav and streaming tunes to the headunit, so having my BB in a visable place is great and the mount I have now likes to break loose at random times (usually in traffic).

Hywelbane

I'd stick the confiscated toys of my kids on it. Bonus points if it is mounted just out of their reach, taunting them.

jleung

wanna win a contest! any contest!

diggs007

I would use it for my 9780 while in driving so I can use the gps and watch for incoming calls

pdl2mtl90

Love to win one for my Bold 9700.

AceDeuce

My window mount just broke. Spent a pretty penny on it too and am not able to take it back. Would love a replacement.

Steven Friedmann

This *has* to go on a hardhat, to make a hands-free heads-up display out of my Torch. Second option: as a night table stand to keep the display visible.

rich007007

I can totally use like 5 of these...I guess would settle for just one. ty cb

halomunky

I'd like one! Besides my phone, I'd attach a mirror to it because I don't have one of those swivel mirrors :(

rx999

My sunglasses case will never be out of reach again!

hlavicka

need this for my ceo

simplechaos

I would use it for my 9700 in my car to use the media player through my bluetooth car stereo!

togardergrosse

Have won 3 themes, and really really want a 'product' plz :D

champito21

I would love to win one!!!

WILLSaDICKted

Will- Im sure my Curve 3g would love this, but lets face it...my Bold 9930 is gonna love driving front and center on the dash of my not so pimped out 97 Chevrolet Lumina ..please! my car needs some high tech class!

JREwing

I need one. Sign me up.

MannyGeee

I could use (at least) one of these! mount my new Torch 2 TouchScreen (eventually) in my car and use it as GPS. heck, one in every car!

npunk42

My 9650, or maybe my Playbook?

bpadam17

GuyH

Looks crap. Hope I win.

jhong825

Very useful for any type of phone! I would love to use it!

petike126

I would love to win one. It would be perfect for my Bold9700 or anything I would like to stick on it :)

Lumute

Wow, that mount looks pretty cool! I want one!!!

Earth#CB

My Playbook, or the 9780 ;)

Huntemup

I could stick this to my office desk so my phone is available all of the time.

blutricky

I would love to win this for my Torch...soon to be 9900 ;)

jmac875

i wouldnt mind testing one out i spend most of my time in the car anyway

tjdevine

Now if I could find a way to stick my wife on it....I mean phone.

juice1179

I'd love one for my 9860, that is whenever I actually can buy one!

jjcool

I would stick my Pearl to it in my car (my storm2 has problems and I'm holding out for some new devices before I upgrade), or whatever new device I get.

Turbaru

I'm hoping my new 9330 sticks to it! :)

arturox

maybe some bags with condons in my room LOL

clee666

I need one for my car!

zoomlink1

Nice vid, great product.

Ekilla

id like one of these, please pick me crackberry! i love you!

DeLeonR

I would stick my BB and use BB Traffic with it!!!

dalek

I travel a territory in a pickup and this would be great.

Mr-Chasteau

Leaving a comment to win one :) lol

ianbordas

Just what i've been looking for!!!!

redman8

nice, i am in the car all day

Kat0908

This would be SO cool. I would suction this to my windshield and use the green sticky end to stick my french fries to it for added convenience when eating on the go!

NSheld

I'd stick it on my NS6 so I could DJ and check my phone handsfree :)

rottonj

I would love to wine one. Thanks

DeeLishusOne

oooooohhhhhh weeeeeeeee.......I would love this!!

dwain77

Cool mount, this would be great in my car either when listening to music/podcasts while in traffic from work...or when using google maps for directions.

garymait

Could use this as I often switch from GPS Nuvi to smartphone.

ChaSiuBao

I would stick my 9800 to this thing! and maybe my granola bar in the morning haha

parked

The guy in the video has total hat-hair, but the Clingo looks awesome.

wing2299

What a great idea.

Most car mounts block access the charging ports nor put pressure on the side convenience keys. This would work perfect for my 9780.

diamondguy37

I would love to Clingo'n to one!!

inocent3

Looks like a fantastic product, I would love to give it a go!

doraemon_918

Your reviewed rock! You sold me on this one already. I guess I have to wait to see if I win before buying this sticky pad ;)

Itstakenovermylife

I'm in! My window mount just broke... desperately need a new one!

technowiz95

Well, aside from my torch, ill bet a nice piece of artwork or something, just for my car, would stick :)

mrztune

I want one pleeeeeze. ( hmm i wonda if it will hold my blackberries - fruit that is while i'm drivin)

rac9171

could really use this

cas118

That looks awesome.

ubuntudroid

Awesome! Hope I get one.

CanuckSoldier

Ya this looks great and would look even better with my soon to be 9810 or 9900 stuck to it :p

dakid2k6

I would stick my BB and android from my wife, when we drive to watch movies not gps :p
Also a photo of me and her so she can see me when I'm alone lol. Good luck to all who enter.

gyubok

i want to get one for my mom!

Belerephont

It would stick perfectly on my dashboard! Count me in please

jaBBu

Well if I win this item, the first thing I would stick to it would be my BlackBerry. But if you watch the Clingo video contest entry above, the possibilities are endless.

thefinks

Yeah I said it!! I won't have to keep my BB in between my thighs while I drive to feel it vibrate when my 2yr old is asleep in car seat behind me!

JamesWolford

This thing looks so cool. I so need one so I can more so I can more safely listen to the crackberry podcasts on my commutes to and from work. Also would be able to better use the gps navigation from my phone while driving since the wife has the garmin. She is a bold user and I a torch, so my screen is better suited for navigation. Oh yea and I am in one of those states that it is illegal to talk and drive without a handsfree device, although getting phone calls while I am driving is so annoying as it interupts my crackberry listening.

Tony_11

Woah thats awesome! I want one!

rsalinger

This would be such a nice a nice replacement for my vent mount.

Edd17

It's amazing charger, i want one pls crackberry!

puddin78

Would love this for my car! And my soon-to-be 9900 :p

dakid72

This would be a great item, I would stick whatever can't be tied down in the car, i.e. wife, kids, pets, hitchhikers, tickets, starbucks, breakfast croissants, etc., etc.
Thanks in advance CrackBerry and Clingo!

WiHogs

I would appreciate one!

TheScionicMan

I would put my BB Bold 9000 on it. It is too wide for all of the clamp mounts and they push the convenience keys. If one works as good as the reviewer claims, maybe I'll buy a pair and use them for my PlayBook

HawkC026

This looks like a pretty interesting car mount........I'd love to give it a try!

Camoberry

I have never seen anything like that. Very cool. I'll take 2, (wife needs one for her 9800)

hv265

This would be Awesome

leontam

My BlackBerry Bold 9780

un_peacekeeper

I am so going to buy one, but if I get a free one, I will be trying to hold up my PlayBook with two mounts!

Kretus

leaving a comment to win one :)

zenfloater

Me !!
Stick it to the windowwwwwww to the wallll !!

ab0rt

I would use it to stick my BlackBerry Torch 9800 to it - until I replace it with a BlackBerry 7 (ideally the 9900) that is!

snoozininsomniac

Flip4Bytes

Cazurela

I'd love to get one! Go Crackberry!

mundo472

Oh my god! They finally invented Flubber!!!!!!! Sign me up

Kerzhan

I would stick my 9700 to it... my future 9900... and quite possibly even my Garmin! Why not, right?

susu222

Cling to me ha! I'll like it

wordlover

I would use this for my Bold 9700.

Revord

I have a cheap knock off version of this, but to have this and the clingo for my phone and playbook would be awesome :)

Sea-Dweller

What would stick to my Clingo universal mount is my BlackBerry or GPS. Pick me! :-)

Apollux

No hurt in entering the contest. What would I stick to it? Obvious choice would be my 8520 and 9700 (while running Waze). No more phone falling into my lap while driving !!

tcseacliff

would love to have it. that is my comment and I am "sticking" to it!!

Harryl6134

Love to have one for my 9800 Torch in the car!

fatbambooshoot

I have been using GPSLook on my BlackBerry as a GPS navigator for my last trip to BC's interiors, wouldn't mind the free upgrade to hold it in place.

Jerg

I would stick my 9630 to it for sure :)

excusemysmoke

im going to need this for my new bold 9930

Sudo

pets underfoot? clingo to the rescue ;>

grassman333

I really would like one to try, but I admit to being nervous that in the heat of the day, this device would fail. My GPS device has fallen off my dash on the hottest SC days - and my Torch is more valuable than my GPS!!!

martain

I'd love to have one, to get my Storm 2 out of the cup holder, so my coffee can go back in.

eve6er69

i work on the road in a bumpy rocky truck, i haven't found a mount that can hold my phone whenever i hit train tracks. i would live to give this sticky surface a shot. i think this may help my falling phone syndrome, lol

Kemotaha

I would probably stick this on my car so I could use blackberry traffic more effectively.

Toxic

Would love to win this!

houseane

This is great over traditional (!) clamp style mounts. I would use it to hold both my Bold and GPS. My current mount is too narrow for my GPS.

jumper3006

i would use this in my truck to hold my bb at the perfect angle.

dphillippi

nice - i am in for one!!!

psarna

for starters just my bb :)

Bjblondie58

Need somewhere else to put my 9700 besides in the cup holder I have in my truck!

dev2nsu

I would love one of these!!! i would stick mines to my bedpost so I will never miss anything lol good luck everyone

TurboTiger

Need one for my Storm2 in my car.

TIA

BravoZuluDelta

Now that is cool...and the video shows a Torch so I already know mine will stick. :)

4abetterworld

This would be great to hook up my new 9900 to my windshield so I can use it as a gps.

mrpinkbullets

I want one for my 9700...and the 9900 I will be buying ASAP!

AshDeezy

Definitely use it for my PB on the desk if it can hold that weight on the acrylic.

As always I enjoy your video reviews Joseph, and you always have good things to add to the podcasts. Nice work.

Thuggidy

so cool. i could use this for my playbook

talex05

this is one of the coolest car mounts I ever seen I would love to win one I would promote it to everyone.

ivande

well, I'd stick my Torch or at least car glasses :)

camaro_87

Sign me up! I could really use one!! WINNING!

Patkennedyjr

well for the time being I would stick my 9700 phone to it until I upgrade! I might even stick one of my kids to it if the dont behave!

dgross07

Yes please. Thank you.

Barefoot_Kevin

This would be SWEET for my 9650 (and my 9930 when I get it)! Pick me, pick me!

CinciBerry

Not a big fan of the "sticky pad" concept. They eventually get "non-sticky" and you have to wash it to get some stickiness back. Pretty inconvenient if you ask me. But I'll try my luck and enter to win one anyway...

I WANT! I WANT! I WANT!
