Facts About RAM Mounts X-Grip Large Phone Mount with Handlebar U-Bolt Base RAM-B-149Z-UN10U with Medium Arm for Motorcycle, ATV/UTV, Bike
I have a Samsung note 3 in a case. Measures 3.25 width by 6.25 heights. The ram mount works great. You do have to be careful on the position when setting phone. The volume button on left is .5 inches from the top. I position the phone so the top grips are just above the volume button. Works great.
I have the stock bars on a 2009 Harley FLHTCU. So whatever size those are, it works perfect. I believe it is 1-1/4". By the way, this is an awesome product. I keep my $600 phone in it and have no worries and the ball mount never moves unless I want it to.
The A in the part number indicates the double socket arm in the kit is one inch shorter. Without, the A, it’s a three inch arm, and with the A, it’s a two inch arm. -Brian P., Ram Mounts.
I too have a Droid 2 with Otter Box and have not found a good solution for mounting my phone. I have Yaffee ape high rise 1 1/4" bars
I am tired of returning holders that either don’t fit my phone or my handle bars.
Not completely sure, but I’d imagine so. It hold my Nexus 6 (6" screen) easily. The Garmin is a little thicker, but it doesn’t seem like that would be a problem.
I have an iPhone 7 Plus with a case on it and it fits in this mount great and it still has room to spare. I feel pretty confident that my phone will stay in.
Hi. I am sorry but I am not familiar with that pro 30 thing. I can tell you that I have a note 10 and it opens up large enough for a phone much bigger than the note 10 if that helps
It may work. I believe they are made for Apple or similar devices. Ram mounts makes another mount for Samsung devices.
Very easily. I mount my Garmin GPS with it, which is larger than my Note 8 or your S9 with an OtterBox cover. You also get an elastic tether with it to secure it further.
My note 9 with defender OtterBox fits with a little room to spare
3 1/2" x 6 7/8"

I’m not sure, It is adjustable so it might.
Info About RAM Mounts X-Grip Large Phone Mount with Handlebar U-Bolt Base RAM-B-149Z-UN10U with Medium Arm for Motorcycle, ATV/UTV, Bike (Reviews From Amazon)
Okay, I made the mistake of being cheap, not once… but twice before this order.
I have also confirmed with others who made the same mistakes, pretty much everything under the 30 dollar mark is for a bicycle not a motorcycle. And even so, the ones above the 30 dollar mark that are made for motorcycles are not made for people who ride hard. What I mean by this is if your ride off road, or even just street and come down a little hard from a wheelie you will still probably knock the phone loose on most other mounts.
This one actually hold the phone stable under all speeds and conditions I have had so far.
I had to mount it a bit uncconventually on my ducati as this is a track bike with very little room to clamp anything, and the clip-ons are already short mounted with no room to connect to the bar itself. So I finagled and used the mounting bracket smaller U bolt around the protruding spring setting screws from the front fork’s suspension. Its a little interesting of a connection, but Its holding rock solid and I love how it fits.
This was definitely worth the cost, as it may be a bit more then I wanted to spend on a mount, its better to spend 50 up front then 1000 for a replacement phone when your cheap buy drops it on the highway at a buck 30.
I will try to post back in sometime and update if it changes, if I don’t update its holding fine.
RAM mounts are by far the best out there for motorcycles. I’ve tried a couple different ones over the years and while none have ever failed and released my phone, the RAM mount is just better. Ease of access. You can pop your phone in and out in a second. It’s sturdy. My phone doesn’t move around at all from the wind or vibration of my bike. So many options for how to mount it also. You can pretty much mount it in any direction at any angle.
My only recommendation is that once you have it where you want it and in the ideal position, remove the thumb screw and use a nut to tighten it down. I know a few people that have had the arm and X portion of the mount stolen right off their bikes because it’s just that easy.
I purchased this to mount my phone on my motorcycle handlebars. I have 1" bars and the rail mount fits well. The double socket arm allows me to position it right where I want it and the X-Grip holds my phone really securely. The first few times I used it, I used the little rubber web thing that comes with it and wraps around the corners of your phone to give extra security against the phone falling out. After a few rides I tried going without that extra piece, just relying on the X-Grip itself and I’ve never used the extra piece since. The X-Grip holds very securely. I ride a cruiser and the mount sits behind a windshield, but my phone hasn’t budged in the X-Grip during any city or highway riding up to 110mph. If you’re riding a dirt bike, or a dual sport on rougher terrain, you may want the extra security of the web.
My only complaint, which is just a matter of the design, and is just something you have to deal with, is it takes 2 hands to put your phone in and out of this device. One to hold the phone and the other to open the X-Grip. First world problem for sure, but that’s the price you pay for such a secure hold.
I’ve since bought several more X-Grips for other vehicles.
I wrote a previous review just a few minutes ago and my opinion doesn’t change. I still love it! However, first step I’d take when receiving it is to superglue the rubber grips in place. I took my phone off the first time and a grip came off with it and went flying, but I followed it with my eagle-eye bifocals and retrieved it. That won’t happen again! 🙂
I had to wait until I had a nice long ride on and off road before reviewing. Took the MB through the trails with plenty of shocks, vibration, and fun. I don’t think my phone moved at all. Because I’m using a Samsung S10+ with an Otter Box case (think large), I was worried size and weight would cause it to shift around. I also worried that the high mount I have to use to avoid the power and volume button would work against me. I didn’t need to worry. After 65 miles of on and off-road fun, I still have a phone.
Mounting the phone on the bars was fast and easy. Once the base was installed, getting it positioned right next to my left mirror was also easy and so natural it looks designed. The X grabber is also a neat design I’ve not used before. I open it with one hand, put the phone in and position as I close. Having the phone front and center when exploring is a very nice to have. Just pull off, check you are where you think you are, and keep going.
It is pricy and I didn’t want to spend as much as I did. I gambled this design, at this cost, would be able to keep my phone in place. I like it a lot so for me, in the end, it is worth the price. The phone keeper snapped immediately. Perhaps my S10+ in an Otterbox is just too big for it. I’m not seeing a problem as the phone stays put in the holder.
Wow, talk about a phone holder that’s good looking, solid, sturdy, rugged, adaptable and easy to reconfigure, this is the baby you’ve been been looking for over the years. I especially love the ease to change the display angle, pivot and even change from portrait to landscape within 10 seconds! (who are these guys that invent such cool toys)
Okay, so it isn’t cheap so if all about having something that will “get you by” for a while, then keep looking. But if you’re ready to treat yourself to the display mount in your dreams, where you can easily change the viewing angle and orientation of your phone, then this is your baby!
I’ve had various cell phone mounts on my motorcycles over the years, but not that worked so flawlessly as this one. I have an iPhone 6 Plus, and the thought of that thing bouncing down the highway made me think twice about relying on ANY cell phone mount. However, after reading other people’s reviews, I decided to give it a shot. The unit is very easy to operate (mounting / dismounting the phone), and even without the included heavy-duty rubber straps, I feel the phone is locked VERY securely in place. I especially like the fact that I don’t have to remove the cell phone case when I want to use this mount. I am extremely pleased with this purchase.
This mounted on my motorcycle in about five minutes. That included instruction reading. It’s not difficult. The rubber strap for extra security is handy on rough roads (think primitive dirt w/potholes and ruts, very un-improved). On regular hard surface roads the extra rubber is not needed. Placement may not be the same for all bikes. I use this to watch the GPS route. I do not, and do not advise, attending to calls or messages, or other such nonsense on the phone while driving or riding.
Nothing about this mount will prevent theft from the bike if you go in a restaurant. Wait, who would leave their phone in this day and age, you’d go into technological withdrawal.
I was getting ready to move cross country and needed a way to mount my phone/gps to my bike, and previous phone mounts have unceremoniously killed two phones before. So buying this was scary just because it LOOKS like there isn’t much to it. It also didn’t help that the day of my trip, the rubber arresting strap broke. I was told I didn’t need it, but it left a knot in my stomach as I started heading down the road.
1000 miles and 17 hours later, and the mount was perfect. The phone (a Galaxy s20) didn’t move a muscle, didn’t have excessive vibration on my Harley Sportster, and it was a headache-free experience. I finally allowed myself to relax after a few hours seeing it handle the interstate like a champion.
Can’t recommend this enough.
I noticed this product on a shelf in the local bike shop, for considerably more than listed here.
I received the mount and within five minutes had this mounted nicely, securely, firmly on my motorcycle. I was a bit cautious of how well it would do, but my regular day-to-day ride involves some horrendous roads.
I plopped my iPhone 7 Plus in the mount – noticed that the arms were hitting the volume rockers on the sides, so re-positioned it and the arms until I knew it was safe to ride.
Not an issue what-so-ever with this grasping my iPhone 7 Plus in it’s UAG case. I use this every day to firmly secure my phone for GPS usage.
Well made, sturdy and definitely worth the investment.
