Sophie - I am looking at this product, and was anticipating the same problem. I am thinking that I could buy a second case (my phone is always in a protective case) to keep in the car for use with the car mount. Not only solves the issue of a big, inconvenient bump on the back of my phone, but I don't have to worry about ruining my credit cards or computer with the magnet.
What a simple design and concept. I love it. Stays right where I want it and even attaches to the side of the car for group pictures.
Keep up the good work

I never review products but I had to when I was presented with this opportunity. This product is fantastic. I tell everyone I know to get one. My phone now never falls off the console. I can't speak more highly about a product that I ever purchased.

I purchased the Steelie Car Mount Kit this past Thanksgiving. I had been looking for a car mount option for my iPhone 6 for quite some time, going through three or four different ones that either failed in some way or were wildly difficult to mount and/or unmount. I saw the Steelie and thought it would be everything I wanted, but I was worried about the magnetic piece that attaches to your phone case being a bother. But, I took a chance.
I have not been so delighted by a product as I have been by the Steelie Car Mount Kit in several years. It is a triumph of design, where form meets function perfectly. I purchased two bases, one for my car and one for my wife's car. The bases and phone piece could not be easier to attach. The product feels firm and well built. The magnetic hold once mounted is firm. The ability to move the phone in any direction and any angle easily is the best of all the devices I've used. The magnet on the phone is almost unnoticeable in my daily use of the phone. I've also found accidental uses for the magnet on my phone. I've been able to stick my phone to the refrigerator in my kitchen when cleaning and cooking, allowing easy, out of the way access to the phone. There have also been a number of applications at my job where being able to stick the phone to a metal surface has come in quite handy. The mount in my car is so subtle and classy looking, it appears as if it is an original part of the car.
Bravo to the designers and builders of the Steelie Car Mount! You have solved one of the most aggravating of minor problems in my life. I recommend this product to anyone...you will not be disappointed!

Ingenious...as a trucker, hands-free is law and this product works great. It holds my phone firmly to the dash even through the worst road surfaces. I highly recommend it!
When my phone is not attached to the car, I don't want Magnetic Phone Socket still on it attached with glue.
Really good idea, but the lump on the bag means it won't lay flat on worktops and was uncomfortable in my pocket. Other wise it's great in the car.

Excellent... except for one thing: if there is no flat, angled surface on which to mount the ball, it doesn't work. If the ball is mounted on a horizontal surface, the mobile device can't swivel enough so that the screen is vertical.

Awesome gadget, I use it with my Connect Case. I mounted the ball on the dash in my car and the magnet on the clip of the Connect case. Perfect, and simple. Highly recommend!

By far and away, THE BEST product I have found for holding a phone in a car, boat, motorcycle. I have it in my car, and soon to go in my son's boat and car.

This is the ONLY car mount kit worth considering. Easy to install, rugged and elegant, it works like a charm.
My car just didn't have a place to put a cell phone holder without blocking some needed control or button. The Steelie changed all that.
I use an iPhone 5s, and the sleek lines are important to me. The small "button" I applied to the case is unobtrusive and lets me use the phone as I always have... only better! I can now just stick the phone to the fridge or any other ferrous surface and have it conveniently in view.
This really is an outstanding product!
