Quad Lock is an Australian start-up company that has developed an ingenious way to mount your phone onto your handlebars. It also offers a range of accessories that work with its phone cases. See our Quad Lock Brand Page for an overview of all company’s geeky gadgets.
The heart of this systems approach lies in the namesake “Quad Lock” — a four-toothed mechanical interface that locks Part A to Part B.
Part A in is either a dual-density molded phone case, or this Universal Adapter, which secures via 3M adhesive to any extisting phone case, GPS decice or EZ-Pass.
Part B is the mount. The most popular is the Bike/Bar Mount, which attaches quickly and easily to your handlebars and uses a spring-loaded locking collet to securely orient a phone in either the portrait or landscape position. This mount works best when you have at least a couple inches of available real estate at the center of your handlebar. If you don't, the Out Front option might do the trick. Quak Lock offers a range of other monts—for a car, tripod, wall, belt or arm band. Note that some of these rely on simple detents to keep the phone in position, and only the locking collett found on the Bike/Bar mount or Out Front mount will keep a phone or device safe from a high-speed ejection.
