Default (more info) Air Vent Mount Holder (UPDATE) And how to make a tripod mount!!!!

The car/a/c vent mount called "Car Air Vent Mount Holder For Samsung Galaxy Note" and sold by
eBay My World - fj2010-store is worth every penny I paid and then some.

For $5 I was expecting something real cheep and that would only work once. I WAS WRONG. The quality is more like $20-ish so I expect this to last at least a 6 months to a year, but at $5, who cares. It is a perfect fit to my AT&T Note and installs in 1 second with no damage. Plus I can transfer it between my Dodge Intrepid and my Dodge Durango when needed with zero issues. If you need an inexpensive car mount that hooks to your a/c vent, look no further. Pictures attached

PS, I have no idea what the 2 small adapters are used for, as I did not need them

EDIT Check out my two posts below for more pictures a video and my tripod mount:

The black square part around the clip (in front of the spring) move away form the hook squishing the spring and opening the hook area, then the hook, grabs the back of the vent and push (slightly) push the black square thing to latch on the front of the vent fin.

Here are some pics and video of the hook/clip and how it works

TRIPOD MOUNTING

I screwed the extra adapter to my Dynes DX-NW080 tripod's camera adapter; placed the new modified adapters on the tripod, attached the holder for the phone and it is all setup. Plus the tripod and adapter are centered enough that I get a 100% clear picture without any of the tripod showing in the picture. Since the tripod allows for the area that the adapter attaches to to lay horizontal and vertical, I can take pictures and videos in landscape or portrait mounted to a tripod.

Attached are picture of how I put the adapters together, the adapter on the tripod, the positions of the tripod head, how the phone clip mounts and one picture showing my front door with the phone mounted to show you cannot see any of the tripod or adapter. Just wanted to share more info about this.

So if you have a tripod with an extra removable camera adapter and do not mind screwing the extra adapter to it, you now have a tripod mount
