When it comes to handy little gadgets, the Zhip is a must-have for anyone on the go, particularly those who often find themselves in need of something to keep their kids occupied in a pinch. With its detachable hook and three-foot long “no drop” cord, the Zhip (pronounced “zip”) gives you a convenient way to mount your smart phone to the back of a car seat, onto the treadmill at the gym, on the seat in front of you on an airplane, or just about anywhere you can string the Zhip up. Just clamp the “no scratch” claws around your phone, pull out the detachable hook, wrap the cord around a stationary and secure object, tighten and lock the cord, and you’re all set. Of course, you can leave the cord retracted and just use the Zhip as a desktop stand. We haven’t had a chance to put the Zhip through all the paces yet (we’re eager to try it out on a plane), but with what we’ve seen so far, we’re confident this pocket-sized wonder can adapt to just about any situation.
