I had received a Quad Lock as a Christmas gift several years ago and used it many times with my cell phone that I had at that time. Which there was a case that fit that cell phone so all was good! But since then I have upgraded my cell phone and now there isn’t a case made by Quad Lock that fits my cell phone. So I got to thinking about just finding a universal one but a lot of those are not big enough to fit my Samsung Note 5 or if they were big enough it just required a lot of steps just to get the phone strapped on to the mount.
That got me to thinking, there has to be another way that still allows me to use the Quad Lock mount and well there is!
1 – A case that fits your device that has a smooth, non textured, non-porous surfaces. (It will NOT adhere to rubber, silicon, TPU or soft touch coatings.)
The obvious thing you also need would be the Quad Lock mount itself, which I already have from the previous case that I had. But if you don’t have the mount then you can buy the Quad Lock Universal Bike Mount Kit which includes the mount and the universal adapter. If you buy the bike kit then you will still need a case that has a smooth surface, unless of course you want to stick the universal adapter directly to your phone. (I don’t recommend this, but that is just my personal preference)
Clean the surface of the case thoroughly (with alcohol) and dry it. Make sure the alcohol has evaporated completely before adhering the adapter to your case
Remove the protective layer from the adapter.
Position the adapter in the center of the case (or as close to center as you can), make sure you have it positioned correctly before you set it down on the case. If you use too much pressure when putting the adapter down on the case it can make it bond almost immediately making it difficult to remove the adapter without damaging either the case or the adapter. The adhesive tape is NOT reusable.
Once you have it positioned correctly, then firmly press down on the adapter securing the bond to the case. It will take about 24 hours for the tape to achieve maximum adhesion. Allow at least 24 hours for the tape to make a secure bond with the case before you use the product.
Now you can continue to use your Quad Lock mount with your new cell phone!
