The Perfect Squeeze
- The Big Squeeze and the Prefect Squeeze are designed with one objective in mind: Hold any device in any terrain. And by hold we mean hold steady, without wobble, without constant readjustments.
- Just rock-solid holding power for folks who need to read their map while skipping through whoops or getting rattled over nasty washboard.
- It will hold everything from a small phone to a full-sized iPad and doesn’t need any sort of special case to do it.
