34 Votes

Rate this product

The Fast Ball Magnetic Mount is a media mount for your phone or tablet that consists of a stainless steel ball with a sticky base and a magnetic disc attached. You can stick the ball virtually anywhere, such as on your car's dashboard, and it'll hold your phone or tablet steady at any angle you choose. Due to the shape of the ball, you'll be able to rotate your phone or tablet a full 360 degrees while it's being held up.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Fast Ball Magnetic Mount is $14.99 plus $4.99 shipping, for a total price of $19.98. Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: buyfastball.com

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Mount Stainless Steel Ball

    First, you'll need to mount your ball wherever you want your tablet or phone to rest. Since its backing is sticky, the surface you mount it to won't need to be magnetic for it to stick. Aside from your car's dashboard, you may want to mount it to a piece of furniture or even a wall.

  2. Attach Magnetic Disc

    Next, attach one side of the included magnetic disc to the back of your phone or tablet and the other side to your mounted stainless steel ball. This will attach your digital device securely to the ball so it won't slide off and fall to the ground. This disc and digital device together can also swivel and tilt while attached to the ball, so you can view your device's screen at an ideal angle.

  3. Enjoy Your Device Hands-free

    After you've adjusted your device so it's resting at an angle you prefer, you'll be able to enjoy streaming music, watching a movie, looking at maps or doing whatever you'd like with it. You'll also be able to keep your hands free for driving, eating, taking notes and a variety of other common tasks, as you'll never have to worry about holding your device up. Whenever you feel like you need to change the angle, just give it a gentle push with one hand.

How It Works

The ball and socket is the name of a stable, swiveling joint found underneath the armpit in the human body. The Fast Ball Magnetic Mount and its attached disc have actually been designed to mimic the action of this joint, which means the ball and disc will stay stable while possessing the ability to rotate. These two attributes are what keeps your phone or tablet resting securely on the ball while tipping or rotating to your angle of choice.

Features

  • Quickly Releases Device

    No matter the shape or size of the device you've attached to your magnetic mount, the mount will release the device in just a second once you give it a gentle tug. It won't hang on stubbornly to the device when you need to pick it up for any reason.

  • Durable Ball

    The ball within each of these mounts is made of stainless steel, which makes it much more durable than a ball made of plastic, rubber or any other weaker material commonly used to make balls. Even if you happen to drop it on the ground, it likely won't break or even get damaged. For this reason, you may be able to use one of these mounts for your phone or tablet for years without replacing it.

  • Withstands Bumps

    Not only is the ball within each Fast Ball Magnetic Mount durable, the whole mount will also allow your phone or tablet to withstand bumps. If you're using it while driving, riding on a motorcycle or biking and your vehicle hits a large bump, your phone or tablet will stay securely attached to the vehicle as you go over it.

  • Portrait or Landscape View

    As you'll be able to swivel your phone or tablet in a complete circle of 360 degrees while it's attached to this mount, you'll be able to see it in portrait or landscape orientation. While people tend to look at their phones vertically (portrait orientation), sometimes landscape orientation is more useful, such as when you're trying to read road maps or watch a video on a small screen.

Positive Points

  • Helps Prevent Accidents

    If you've got your cell phone resting between your seats or on your dashboard, it may fall down and get under your feet or land in your lap. This could end up interfering with your pedal or steering wheel operation, and cause you to get in an accident. Fortunately, once you mount your phone on your dashboard or elsewhere with your Fast Ball Magnetic Mount, the chances of this happening are slim to none. Due to the mount's magnetic power, your phone will be nearly locked onto the ball and extremely unlikely to fall.

  • Keeps Kids Busy

    Whether you're at home or in a vehicle, you'll be able to keep one, two or even a group of kids busy by mounting a tablet and playing a video or some music for them. If you're at home, you may want to stick your mount to a table and set up the tablet there. If you happen to be in the car with the kids in the backseat, simply stick your mount (and tablet) to the back of one of the front seats.

  • Allows for Chatting in Car

    While in most areas, it's against the law to hold onto one's phone and talk in the car, you'll be able to carry on audio conversations in the car by using one of these mounts. Just mount it on your dashboard or somewhere else convenient that doesn't obstruct your view of the road, and chat away with a friend, family member or business associate. You'll even be able to have video conversations with others in the car, although you might want to pull over to do that, so the screen doesn't take your attention away from the road.

  • Useful in Kitchen

    Although many people still use printed recipe books, you may be one who likes to look up recipes online or follow step-by-step video tutorials while cooking. Mounting a tablet or phone to your refrigerator or a kitchen cupboard will enable you to see this information clearly with your hands remaining free for the actual cooking.

Negative Points

  • Only for Phones, Tablets

    Some plastic or wooden mounts or stands will hold onto print books and sheets of paper, too, but not this one. It uses only the power of magnetism to hold onto a tablet or phone, and as most people realize, no piece of paper is magnetic.

Save Money

If you currently use or plan on using suction cup mounts in order to hold your cell phone at eye level as you drive, you'll likely find that you need to replace them regularly. Their suctioning power doesn't last very long, and after a few weeks or months, you may find your phone falling to the floor. That's not the case with the Fast Ball Magnetic Mount, though. Its base will retain its stickiness over a longer period of time, and won't need to be replaced as often, even if you move your mount around frequently.

Stainless Steel Ball

Stainless steel is non-magnet, so how can a piece of steel attach to something that is non-magnet.
