'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

When it comes to phone accessories and gadgets, the market is so saturated that it makes it difficult to stand out, and yet the CLCKR Phone Holder & Grip for MagSafe left a big impression on me. This small accessory will quickly become a favorite that you can't live without, and right now it's on sale for only $24 for Cyber Monday.

The MagsSafe accessory's main purpose is to make it easier for you to hold your phone, the same way a pop socket would. However, the appeal of this accessory, in addition to helping you avoid hand fatigue, is that it also doubles as a prop-up stand. 

Whether you are taking a selfie, scrolling through TikTok, watching a YouTube video, or just on a FaceTime call with a friend, finding the right place to set your phone can be difficult. With this handy accessory, all you have to do is click it in place, and you have a stand that you can place anywhere, as seen in the photo at the top of the article. 

Another standout factor, and perhaps the most important one, is the hold of the MagSafe accessory on your phone. Typically, I stray away from using many MagSafe accessories as the result is my phone slowly slipping away from the accessory, risking it falling on the ground and shattering. This hold is one of the most impressive I have personally experienced. 

As seen by the video above, no matter how hard I try to shake the accessory off my phone, the grip remains strong and in place, providing the support you need to confidently use it day in and day out.  

This gift will become the recipient's favorite accessory they didn't even know they needed. The size and price also makes the CLCKR Phone Holder & Grip for MagSafe a great stocking stuffer. Since the recipient needs an iPhone MagSafe case for the accessory to work, it could perhaps be a good idea to pair this accessory with a new case, too.
