Samsung Galaxy S3 / S4 / S5 / Note 2 / 3
This "Does" put the Samsung Galaxy S3 / S4 / Note 2 / 3 into Dock Mode (Excludes the Samsung Galaxy S5)
However Dock mode was disabled in the S5 by Samsung so the only way at this time is to use a NFC chip to activate or manually activate it, Dock will not automatically activate it
(If you are buying this for the S5 we have had no hands on an S5 and you will need to confirm that you can manually activate this Dock mode on your own phone)
(((Make a note in your order if this is for a "Note 3" or a "S5", they have a slightly offset micro usb and I have special milled offset connectors for those phones, so it centers in the Dock)))
Solid Aluminum Milled Dock
40" Micro straight USB to USB Cable
Hex Head Wrench
Adhesive Style Dash Mount
6" Extra Adhesive Tape
(((Does Not Include Suction Cup, I sell those seperatly if you need one you will need to add that to your purchase above)
Docks are all hand made and entirely of Aluminum
Made from 6061 aluminum
Soft flocking for non-scratch surface where the phone slides in
Hard Rubber Protected Side Friction slides
Milled aluminum adjustable micro usb port block
Durable Baked on Powder Coat Finish
As you might imagine these take several hours to make each one of these
Please look at pictures and watch the installation video below, your dock will not come with instructions, its a pretty simple process, but a good set-up makes all the difference, just take care and follow the steps.

I like the construction that went into this dock, very sturdy and rugged. It is excellent with the extended battery. The main reason I did not give this 5 stars, is that I wish this dock had a tilt feature (up, down, left, right) that I had on a previous dock. There are times when I am driving and the sun shines directly on the phone and there is nothing I can do about it.

Easy to use, and can fit about any phone or case. Would love to see a base for it that plugs into the lighter. With the unique screw in for the ball, I'm hard pressed to find one to retrofit it to. Very solid feel and construction.

I'm very happy that this car dock makes my Note 3 do what I want it to. I have Tasker start up AutoGuard, which starts CarHome Ultra, perfect after docking. Lube the bottom arm slightly for a smoother operation. Sweat, forehead grease, and saliva, are easily available and non-toxic.

Built like a tank and does what a car dock should! I have this dock in all of my vehicles. There isn't a dock out there that comes close to this one. Best part is the automatica USB plug-in. I don't have to fiddle with a USB connector each time I dock the phone; I just slide the phone into the dock and it plugs itself in!

Great with an extended battery

I hesitated because of the price, but after receiving the dock, I believe that it is worth much more than Craigsdocks is charging! Perfect one handed operation, and very easy to change when I change cases.
If you're on the fence because of price, take the plunge! I have made a few car docks for myself on my benchtop mill, but this dock is much better.
And it should be adjustable for future phones, as long as the charge cable is in the center of the phone.

Highly recommend this well built product. Yes, it costs more than the cheap flimsy plastic mounts, but it is built to last. I have purchased (2) for my Samsung S3, one for each van. Absolutely love them. Fast response to inquiries. Would be perfect if base could have some type of ball socket adjustment for perfect positioning. Still a very good product. 5 Stars!

I emailed them about a problem with the dock and got a reply within minutes. I got the replacement unit very quickly and they even reimburse me for the shipping cost. I would definitely recommend this product to others.

I was very tired of buying docks that work until the cable falls out, or a piece of plastic gets weak and breaks off...
This dock will last me a long time, its built like a tank and adjustable for any size phone that I will likely use in the foreseeable future. If you're on the fence because of the price like I was, don't hesitate any longer. This dock is worth every penny.

You may pay more for this dock, but you really do get what you pay for. This is built to last and last.
