WHAT'S A POPSOCKET?

PopSocket on back of Mobile Device
Add a single PopSocket, or a pair of PopSockets, to the back of almost any mobile device to transform its capabilities. PopSockets "pop" whenever you need a grip, a stand, an earbud-management system, or just something to play with.

PopSockets not only make terrific phone grips and phone stands, they also make holding tablets and e-readers more comfortable and secure. While PopSockets do not stick to all devices and cases -- especially those made of silicone or with a waterproofing coating -- they do stick to most typical devices and cases. And with the PopClip companion product, they mount to nearly any vertical surface, including dashboards, mirrors, bed posts, refrigerators, and walls, for convenient hands-free viewing.

Whether you place PopSockets on your Nintendo 3DS for gaming, your GoPro for a supplemental grip in the water, or on your bedroom mirror to hang jewellery, the possibilities are endless. Where do you put your PopSockets? Let us know on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

PopSocket Uses

PopSockets Questions

ARE POPSOCKETS SUCTION CUPS FOR ATTACHING MY DEVICE TO SURFACES?

No. What you're looking for is a PopClip -- a simple way to mount your PopSocket devices in your car, office, kitchen, locker, or elsewhere.

DID POPSOCKETS WIN THE WIRED.COM FUELING INNOVATION CONTEST?

They did indeed!

WILL POPSOCKETS STICK TO ANYTHING?

PopSockets will stick to most phones, tablets, e-readers, gaming devices, and cases, but PopSockets will not stick to silicone, or some waterproof cases that well. If you find yourself in this rare and unhappy situation, perhaps you can give your PopSockets to a friend?

HOW DO I STICK MY POPSOCKET?

1. Install the PopSocket at room temperature.
2. Figure out where you want your PopSocket to be
3. Clean the surface where you want to apply the PopSocket to be to ensure all dirt/grease is removed (without doing this your PopSocket might not stick as well)
4. Peel off the adhesive backing and push your PopSocket firmly into place for 12 seconds. 
5.YOU'RE READY TO USE! 

DID NPR MORNING EDITION REPORTER STEVEN HENN SAY THAT POPSOCKETS ARE PRETTY COOL?

Yes.

WHAT IF MY POPSOCKET STOPS STICKING WELL?

Wash the base of your PopSocket with water and let it air dry to return its original stickiness. (But don't leave your PopSocket unattached to anything for days -- if that happens, the adhesive will permanently dry out.)

PopClip Questions


 

 

IS THE POPCLIP REPOSITIONABLE?

Unlike PopSockets, the PopClip 3M adhesive is designed for one-time use. We include an extra adhesive in the PopClip package in case you decide to reposition your PopClip. 

HOW DO I INSTALL MY POPCLIP?

1. Install the PopClip at room temperature.

2. Figure out where you want your PopClip (maybe even attach your phone to it and see where you want your phone to be). 

3. Clean the surface where you want to apply the PopClip. (This is important -- even if the surface looks clean, a protectant like ArmorAll will prevent the PopClip from sticking properly.)

4. Peel off the adhesive backing and push your PopClip firmly into place for 12 seconds. 

5. Wait 24 hours before mounting your phone to your PopClip. 

HOW DO I UNINSTALL MY POPCLIP?

Use dental floss or fishing line in a sawing motion to cut the adhesive away from the surface. Then you can use your finger to roll off any remaining adhesive.  

WHY DIDN'T MY POPCLIP STICK?

Ah, this is why we included an extra adhesive. You probably forgot to clean the surface before applying the PopClip -- even though the surface may look clean, a protectant like ArmorAll will prevent the PopClip from sticking properly.
