Review: iKlip Grip Pro – One Smartphone Mount to Rule them All

 |  |  |  |  |  |  December 2, 2016


If you like to shoot videos or photos with your smartphone, chances are you have at least one accessory like a selfie stick or a tripod. Each of these serves a purpose, but it’s frankly a pain to carry around multiple gadgets. Enter the iKlip Grip Pro, an extremely versatile accessory that not only works as a telescoping selfie stick, but works as a tripod, and as a handheld grip. It holds pretty much any smartphone on the market, with or without a case.

In handheld mode, it works as a grip that keeps your fingers away from the screen, and adds stability to shots. You can then extend the grip’s telescoping rod and use it as a selfie stick, or to get shots over the heads of a crowd. An integrated, detachable Bluetooth shutter lets you operate your iOS or Android camera remotely. The pole extends from 19cm (~7.4 in) to 63 cm (~24.4 in) in length, and locks securely in place at each of its four segments.

At the base of the iKlip Grip Pro are three legs which pop out to form a tripod. This works well for cases where you want to have rock solid shots, and is great when used in conjunction with the remote for shooting videos of yourself. The ball-head mount holds firmly, and offers a wide degree of adjustability, and lets you lock down your smartphone just about at any angle.

The tripod works with both smartphones and with cameras with a 1/4″ UNC thread, weighing up to 35.2 oz. I tested the tripod in tabletop mode with my Sony a6300 and the heaviest lens I own, and the ballhead mount held strong. That said, it doesn’t have a weighted base, so you won’t want to do use this in a high traffic area or in the wind.

You can also extend the tripod using the telescoping mechanism, but it’s pretty top-heavy, so I wouldn’t trust it with anything heavier than a GoPro in this mode.

Overall, the iKlip Grip Pro is an extremely handy tool for any smartphonetographer to keep in their bag of tricks. It replaces at least a couple of items with a single one, is easy to carry and easy to use. You can order the iKlip Grip Pro starting on December 6th for $59.99(USD).
