@ElDoc72 I assume this is for an iphone? Will an iphone 13 just stick right to it or do you have to have a special case to make it stick? I have a regular pretty thin case and wondering if it would work still.

links to where you bought these? Thx
iPhone 12 and 13 stick to it. The case needs to be compatible with MagSafe otherwise you lose the attachment strength. These are the things I got from Amazon:

So basically any mount that places the phone on that area, either from above or from below, would be dangerous 😒
Could be. But by that kind of extension, just riding in your Jeep is dangerous and life threatening.

How about having your hands on that grab bar? It could break your arms. Yet it is designed as a grab bar.

Know your Jeep, how it works, and use your judgement. The fact they put a grab bar for your hands there gives an indication that the bag comes out over the top. But I've also seen the opening with a deflated air bag hanging out of it.

My personal opinion is that the cell charger pictured is low enough to be ok. But that's just me. Not advising anyone to put anything there. My Jeep has two mic hangers for CB and GMRS on the grab handle, but they don't stick more than a couple milimeters above the top of it. Knuckles on hands grabbing the bar would stick up more.

I used your setup and just got a case for my Andriod that supports the MagSafe setup for Apple. It's awesome and no need for adding a metal plate to my previous case. The irony is the case does not look magnetic at all but it works.
