No-slip pad for car holds phones or keys, even while horizontal

Inexpensive no-slip pad

Of any profession, real estate has to be at the top of those that spend time inside a car, aside from truck drivers, cab drivers or construction. In many states, it is illegal to use a cell phone while not stationary, but most continue to take the risk and put the phone up to the ear to keep business going. Some opt to use bluetooth, others opt to use any of the various devices to put calls through their stereo system, while others opt for putting calls on speaker and putting the phone in their lap.

For those who opt for putting calls on speaker, or those that travel with multiple phones, a nifty no-slip pad promises to work in the car, even in a horizontal position! Hallelujah, talking on the phone while driving and not having to worry about dropping the phone and fumbling for it (which is dangerous, we don’t recommend it), all for ten bucks.

“If this $10 no-slip pad works with just friction, and without glue or adhesives,” said Lifehacker’s Jason Chen. “Slap one side somewhere on your car’s dashboard and it’s ready to take any phone or portable device you have. The pad undoubtedly works better the more horizontal you place it, but from the product images found here, it can hold a phone, coins or even glasses in an almost vertical position. The true test, however, will be if they can stay put during sharp turns.”

It also holds keys, glasses, a wallet and more. It doesn’t require adhesive and even works on soft vinyl. There are a lot of no-slip pads on the market, but we can’t pass up one that says it works, even horizontally! Their product page says it is for the AT&T LG Thrive, but if it can hold glasses and money, it can probably handle your EVO or iPhone. Click here for the no-slip pad details.

    Pretty nifty! If I knew it would really work, I'd absolutely give a tenner for it.

    Did you mean "even while vertical"?
