Please observe the following advices:

  • The tripod must be placed safely and leveled on an unmoving ground.
  • The smartphone must be mounted safely in the smartphone clamp.
  • The backside of the smartphone must fit closely against the inner surface of the clamp. For smartphones with curved backside: Check carefully for a safe and precise positioning.
  • The clamp fits smartphones with a maximum width of 85 mm.
  • Neither buttons should be covered or pressed, nor the camera lens should be covered by the clamp.
  • The smartphone must be in vertical position, while adjusting.
  • All screws must be tightened after adjusting.
  • You can also slide your smartphone up and down carefully in the clamp to align the camera. Keep in mind to re-check for a safe and straight fit of your smartphone.
  • To avoid damages to your smartphone make sure to turn the reticle in horizontal position before taking photos.
