About

(WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE TO SEE THE MOUNTY IN ACTION)

Where would we be without our smartphones? They connect us with the world, ensure we don't get lost and keep us organized. But, sometimes they get tossed in a purse or shoved in a pocket as we go about our daily lives. Wouldn't it be great to have smartphone magic more accessible?

Say Hello to The Mounty! 

The Mounty is a simple, durable and user-friendly smartphone mount.  The Mounty requires no tools to install/remove, and will keep your phone (optimized for iPhone 4/4S) secure as you cruise new trails or stroll supermarket aisles.

Uses for The Mounty

The Mounty can be used in a variety of places and in countless ways. We initially designed the Mounty to fit bicycles, but we were excited to find it could also be used on motorcycles, strollers and even shopping carts. 

Attach the Mounty to a handlebar, and your smartphone will be ready for:

Cycling: training apps, map feature, recording your ride

Shopping: price checking, grocery lists, calculator

Fitness: music, maps, training apps, phone/text

Transportation: maps, phone, weather

How it works

"Will It Mount?" (Your chance for double rewards)

Why do we need your help?

As you have seen in the video and in the photos above, we've made several prototypes of the Mounty. We have refined the design to ensure that it works in a wide range of applications. While the prototype versions of the Mounty work great and look cool, we need to go to production to make more than just a few.

The next step in this process is to take the leap from prototyping to production, and that is where you come in. Your support will help us cover the initial investment in production manufacturing and complete the journey from idea to reality.

Also, just a cool FYI: most of our rewards include a Mounty...some backers will even receive a customized Mounty featuring 3-D text molding or laser etching, like these:

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Important Info:

  • If we fund, backers will receive a survey to provide shipping address and color preferences.
  • Please add $5 per Mounty for shipments to Canada and $10 per Mounty for international shipments.
  • Upon funding, first shipments of the Mounty will begin at end of April or early May. 
  • Your credit card is only charged IF we fund the project.
