Happy new year folks

I've been looking for something like this for a while and have come up with nothing. I'm at the point where I think I have to buy two items and jerryrig them together to get what I want.

What I need is a gooseneck arm for my phone on my desk. The phone needs to be held on with a magnet and the gooseneck needs to be clamped to my desk.

Basically I want to combine this

with this


Every gooseneck I've ever seen has a clamp on the phone end. My thought is to glue the above circular magnetic mount to the gooseneck and then just cut away everything else with a dremel.

Has anyone ever seen what I'm looking for?

Are referring to this?

That sits on the neck and the phone is held with compression.

Thanks, I'd not seen that before! I'm not thrilled with the scissors style clamp though. My desk is about 1.5" thick and very smooth on top and underneath, I'd be worried that if the clamp is knocked the whole thing would pop off.

How did you find this? I swear, sometimes my wife, who sits behind me, and I can both do a search on each of our Windows 10 Pro desktops, in Chrome, using the same words, and get different results.

The Benks Magnetic Cell Phone Holder is completely, EXACTLY, what I have been wanting and looking for five months!!!!

Thanks so much!!!!

I just ordered the Benks Holder from amazon. I found it at aliexpress for six dollars less, but I keep stuff in my amazon shopping cart that all apply for free shipping and when I get enough of them to qualify I place the order (I'm not Prime).

Thanks again!!!

lol. understand about different results. i think google bases results from what you've searched for before. (since they keep every little scrap of info for years and years).
yay! glad that one fits the bill and you were able to find it even cheaper.
for slippery desk surfaces , you could always put a small square piece of thin rubber between mount surface and desk surface. just a thought.

That arm had the desk clamp, but it also has a phone clamp. I need the phone to be held on with a magnet.
