Quad Lock Case Kickstarting Secure Mounting For Your iPhone

If you're looking for a completely secure mounting solution for your iPhone, you may want to get behind this Aussie Kickstarter campaign. The Quad Lock Case, developed by the Aussie entrepreneurs behind the Opena case we saw a few months back, looks to offer an innovative way to connect your iPhone to just about anything.

Consisting of two key parts - the case and the quad lock - the idea was born out of frustration with having to own multiple docks depending on how they used their phone. As designer of the case, Chris Peters explains in the press release:

“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."

The Quad lock itself comes in two flavours - the first is the Quad Lock ST Flat Mount, a fairly basic unit which is attached to your car or desk (or anywhere else) either via the self-adhesive tape, or a single fixing screw.

The second is the Quad Lock Pro Bar Mount, which is specifically designed for cyclists and bike riders, or other use that needs a more permanent fixing. It comes with zip ties and O rings and will attach to anything tubular in shape, offering a super-secure attachment for your iPhone.

Like with the Opena, Peters and his business partner Rob Ward have turned to Kickstarter to finance their product. With 34 days to go, the pair have $7,746 of the required $20,000 pledged from 121 different backers.

    Good luck to them. The Opena was surely the best case I've ever used, although it could use a bit more of a 'rubber' finish as I found it to be quite slippery compared to the free belkin case I was using.

    Yeh if this thing is as good as the Opena Case its a winner!!!
    @informedGamer, thing is with rubber finishes is they wear and well look average to be honest. I guess with this mounting system you wont need to worry about slippage anymore hey ;).
    Im backin' it!

    InformedGamer: I can not see the Opena version that mounts to my bike? where do I find this?

    I hacked together an old iPhone case and GoPro camera mounts to get my iPhone mounted on my handle bars securely.
    Unfortunatley this was after i first tried a $5 china mount, which failed on the first bump, sending my iPhone to the pavement, where I continued to ride over it (thank genius who gave me a new oe for free)
    I might jump on this, i am looking at some sort of car mount too.

    When are we going to start seeing cases for anything but the iphone.

    It took me months to find a water tight case for my samsung galaxy s for my road bike. Would love to get behind Aussie idea but I can when they are so narrow minded

      From a business stand point its a lot easier and cost effective to focus on one product.....particularly when its the highest selling smart phone ever! Besides all those "one fits all products" are cheap and nasty and never fit. Maybe with some support and future success they'll branch out! Or maybe you should get an iphone ;)

    So, "born out of frustration with having to own multiple docks depending on how they used their phone", here we offer... multiple docking solutions... for use on flat surfaces, and including one "specifically designed for cyclists"?

    Well played solving *that* problem

    Looks great till you notice the two plastic zip ties securing this to the handle bar.

      Top image looks like it has rubber O rings?

      Mmmmm.......like Pan stated have a closer look dude. O rings 1st pic.
