Samsung Galaxy S3 / S4 / S5 / S6 / Note 3 / 4 Car Dock
(Works with Cases and Extended Batteries and also non-cased Phones as well)
Hand Crafted Custom Made in the USA using 6061 Aluminum
(The Otterbox Defender "Does" work with this milled aluminum dock, the video's shown are actually using the Otterbox Defender, you must remove micro usb dust cover as seen in video below because it blocks the micro usb port)
This "Does" put the Samsung Galaxy S3 / S4 / Note 3 / 4 into Dock Mode
(Excludes the Samsung Galaxy S5 / S6, No Docking Mode Available)
Dock mode was disabled in the S5 /S6 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 /S6 we have had no hands on an S5 / S6 and you will need to confirm that you can manually activate this Dock mode on your own phone if this is an option you require)
User adjustable, these come with everything your need to set up your dock, you will need to have a standard "USB Charger" (not included) Cigarette lighter socket style, all you do is plug my cable into it and you are ready to go.
Basic Car Dock Package with No Options Include:
Solid Aluminum Milled Dock
39" or 78" Micro straight USB to USB Cable (Choose Either Above Free Option)
Hex Head Wrench
Fixed Swivel Adhesive Style Dash Mount (Choose Ball Mount For Tilt and Swivel)
6" Extra Adhesive Tape
(((Basic Package Does Not Include Suction Cup, Ball Mount or Extension Rod 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
Rubber Coated Aluminum Protected Side Arms
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 the installation and other video's 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.

The dock has top quality and holds my note 4 perfectly. Will be making another order soon once my friend gets her's.

Absolutely the best quality car dock available. Basically indestructible, and fits any medium to large phone and any case you might use. It's also solid as a rock.
Great product. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a proper phone mount.

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!
