This device holder uses a very thin metal ring that will need to be attached to the back side of your device or hard case if the device is in a case.
NOTICE: Older iPods and other devices with a conventional hard drive should NOT be used with these holders due to the magnet's possibility to damage these devices.
** This item includes the Magnetic holder, two thin metal rings (one black and the other silver), a ball swivel and tightening ring along with 4 small screws for attaching a holder to a mount (item # 12002). No other holders or mounts are included when ordering this item alone. See out vehicle specific mount listings to find your vehicle mount.
Caution: A large or heavy device is typically not recommended to be attached to the dash of a vehicle due to the damage it could cause to the vehicle. The mount might hold to the dash fine, but the vehicle dash panels strength could a concern.
