all it took was 4 suction caps, some beads from my daughters, a copper wire, and a magnet. I attached the copper wire to three caps and added some beads to them. This way I made two short and one longer leg, all flexible. I combined them in bigger bead with a nut and attached a magnet to the fourth cup. the legs can be attached to any smooth surface on your dashboard or the window. The top cup is attached to your phone. the magnet makes it easy to take the phone away from the holder.
