      Hi Kevin, I'm sorry you're having trouble with achieving different mounting orientations. Try the video below for some strategies on achieving the best configurations.

      The limb.al never worked. It was never strong enough to hold the phone at the level you wanted. This was a complete failure. I will sell anyone mine for $5 just to get rid of the thing.

      Its good to see that Bill May can back a recent project but yet is still unable to ship or even contact anyone about what we backed.
      Funny that he doesn't list this project on his portfolio website.

      Hey Bill,
      Still haven't received my Micro USB limb.al. I have done everything in my power to contact you. I emailed you multiple times but you have never answered my emails. I have commented on here but I've always been ignored.
      I think it's time for you to man up and either refund my limb.al or finally send me the product I paid for... It's been 2 years since I gave you my hard earned money so I'm kinda tired of waiting.
      Hope you have the dignity to at least respond.

      Oh and for those wondering, his website is closed :

      http://www.limbal.com

      "Limb.al

      We are currently closed. Unfortunately, we cannot provide a timeline for when the store will re-open."

      Not sure how long it's been but for those who still have any hope to receive anything, I guess you kinda know what to expect now.

      Creator Frank Talbot on March 27

      @eric wills, the real answer is probably :

      "There are still no Chinese knock-offs available on eBay that work with the iPhone 5. While we're doing weekly searches to find something under $5 that we can ship you back with a cheap Limb.al sticker, we've had no luck so far.

      Unfortunately we have no ETA of when we'll find such a product because quite honestly, no one other than you guys still care about that idea anymore. The KS money has been wasted on personal things as soon as I got it in my account.

      My campaign scope was to scam $11K so while I'm happy I got almost 10x that, you guys are starting to become annoying. Hopefully the iPhone 6 will come with another connector and you guys will upgrade and stop bugging me.

      -Bill"

      I just sent a question about not receiving my limb.al for iPhone 5

      "We are in the final stages of sourcing the iPhone 5 version of the limb.al.
      Unfortunately we need more time to test the design and the sourced
      components to ensure they will reliably work with every iPhone5x.

      We apologize for the delay, the iPhone 5 connector was not originally a
      part of our campaign scope. However, we made a promise and we remain
      committed to delivering on that promise.
      -Bill"

      Can you check and respond to me?

      Creator Frank Talbot on March 26

      @Giles, I've had both his Limb.als and the eBay knock-offs. To be fair, both are terrible products but honestly I'd say the eBay one is marginally better.

      I'm surprised he didn't order a bunch of them off eBay and shipped them to backers with a Limb.al tag to get this failed KS project behind him. I can't believe some of you are still waiting for this crap.

    14. Missing_small

      Creator Giles on March 24

      I don't think Bill May designed or invented anything.
      I think he found an item from a cheap subpar Chinese provider and passed it off as his own design (hence the much cheaper version available ages before he started shipping his).
      They may be crap but if the idiot had shipped to everyone most of us would have let it go as a failed Kickstarter. Thats the nature of Kickstarter and everyone should be aware of that. I've backed projects that have failed or the product has been useless but they refunded/partially refunded/delivered an item that didn't work (but did deliver).
      But he didn't ship all of these. He gave up and just took the money leaving lots of pissed off people.
      He's a thief and a lier and is very lucky this page doesn't appear until page 4 on Google. I don't think many people will do buissness with him in the future.

      Bill May, may you rot in hell.

      Creator RC on March 22

      Just to note, I did receive my limbal. I'm in no way happy with it at all, but backing is a gamble on someone elses idea and execution. I still like the idea, but the execution in this case appears to be a dismal failure. It's too bad the post-fulfillment support wasn't handled so well, or I'd have considered supporting a follow-up redesign to actually merge the idea in to a more functional product. *sigh*

      2 x Limb.als ordered, nothing received. It is quite regular for projects to run over time, but with this many complaints, I don't know how Bill can still show his face here.

      Creator Ken Serrien on March 10

      Come on, this guy is a thief and a liar! Kickstarter won't do a thing, except taking the fee for funding. In fact, Kickstarter are also thieves, taking money without something in return. So we are all left in the middle.

      @Barry. At least you received something (even if it is a piece of rubbish). I've had no contact from Bill May at all. He just took my money.
      I wouldn't expect a replacement if I were you.

    22. Shootwithrobert.small

      Creator Bill May on February 25

      Barry, I'm sorry that the item arrived broken. I will send out a fresh one via Amazon. Shipping that way is more expensive but it should be packaged more protectively. Email me if your address has since changed.

      Creator Barry Mikkelsen on February 25

      First limb.al I ordered stopped working within a week. Over 6 months ago I ordered a replacement. That replacement just arrived today - BROKEN. The micro USB tip had a corner snapped off. No protection/bubblewrap for the ends of the packaging. What a joke.

    24. Missing_small

      Creator Giles on February 25

      Bill May, you're lying through your teeth.
      You have failed to deliver most of the micro USB Limb.al's so why the hell are you pretending that you're still trying to make the lightning ones?
      Just admit you're dishonest/a conman/useless/incompentent (delete as you wish) and stop giving people false hope.
      Since I'm never going to get my micro USB version I look at the money you stole from me as a lesson in what Americans from New York (mainly Brooklyn) are really like and I will be very hesitant about doing bussiness with any of them. So thanks for that.

      Hi guys,

      We are still forging ahead on the production of the lightning limb.als but this entire period of time since my last comment has been taken up by Chinese New Year. CNY stalls all factory output and conversation from mid January until late February. Nothing has changed about my optimism to get those units in production.

      I appreciate everyone's patience,
      Bill

      Bill,

      It is almost two years from the time of my pledge, and I am still waiting for my iPhone 5 Limb.al. You have taken my hard earned money and have done a horrible job at communicating. Firstly, you should not have prematurely offered backers the "option" to get a lightning limb.al if you had not figured out the details. You should have just left it at the 30-pin. I kindly ask you once again, for an update as to the ETA of the lightning limb.al. Otherwise, I would like my money back.

      Win some you lose some...this one is a loss! Perhaps I should start a Kickstarter campaign for new t-shirts saying "Bill May screwed me with his Limb.al!" If it's any conciliation for other backers who haven't gotten your product: I receive the micro USB Limb.al. It sucked! broke it within the hour of receiving.
