Hi ninora! You should be able to understand where I'm coming from here :) I purchased a magnetic cell phone holder for my JK; however, as you know the three fin vent spins 360°. When I put the holder on a fin and then attach my phone the weight of the phone makes the fins rotate in. This makes it so that I cannot see the phone and also makes having the holder pointless.

I do not have a printer, but would be willing to commission someone for a reasonable price to print and ship to me. I'm thinking one of three things would work:

  1. A simple, good lookin', stopper
  2. Replacement fins that somehow don't rotate 360°
  3. Full vent print with a built in stopper

Thoughts? Nice build on your cup holder! Also, looking more at your pictures do you recall which cell phone holder you have?

Most people would charge you roughly $30-$50 to print this and ship it out. Probably better just to buy your own 3d printer and print an unlimited supply. You can find a decent 3d printer for 150-200 these days.

Thank you fatboy1271, but I am too busy at the moment, maybe ask other people in the community. Btw, maybe you can solve the problem by gluing the fins frame so we would not rotate.

Thanks for the reply and I completely understand! I appreciate being able to see the cool stuff you make :)

I wish I had looked closer... Something very similar to how you built your cup holder would work too! The way the cup holder fits in between the fins is awesome!!!
