The Cell Buckle is available in two size configurations to fit bars from 7/8-inch to 1-inch, or 1-1/4-inches to 1-1/2 inches. Its rubber wrapped construction mounts easily to the handlebar and carries your smartphone safely, even at ludicrous speed.
During the 2012 ROT Rally I encountered the Cell Buckle’s booth inside the vendor halls. Upon first glance the “As Seen On TV” verbiage adorning the Cell Buckle’s packaging made me wonder if this was just another Slap-Choppin’ gimmick. Turns out that is definitely is not the case.
A couple months later I had the chance to really test the Cell Buckle after riding to/from Sturgis with it attached to my handlebar. With my cell phone clamped inside, I realized the magnitude of how much more pleasant this little gadget made my riding experience. Mostly because I could navigate through the channels while I streaming Howard Stern on Sirius Satellite Radio. Usually, after about an hour of listening to the King of All Media’s zany broadcasts, the Sirius app craps out due to inactivity so I’m forced to reboot it. Doing so while digging through my pants or jacket to reset it while riding is probably the dumbest idea for a motorcyclist to make. And yes, I am the idiot that has done that before and I’m not proud of it. But no more, I don’t want to end up a statistic because I couldn’t hear Sal and Richard’s phony phone calls.
Made from a high-quality and durable rubber-plastic material with a smooth finish to prevent scratches on your phone, GPS, or MP3 player, the Cell Buckle is available with an attractive $19.95 pricetag to fit two different bar configurations (7/8 to 1 inch and 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 inches). The Cell Buckle is easy to operate and snaps on your bar in about one second. For extra security, the unit comes with heavy-gauge rubberbands to secure both sides of the clasp for a bit more peace of mind (I rode almost 3,00 miles without the bands). You can also use it other places like a car’s steering wheel if so desired and installation of your electronic device is a snap. Simply extend the opening of the cell buckle so your phone, etc., fits inside, and then close the top and bottom clasps and you’re done.
The Cell Buckle is also great for use in a car or truck. It easily attaches to most steering wheels so long phone calls to your wife or girlfriend can be done hands-free during your commute.
Overall, the Cell Buckle is one of those products where you actually work up the energy to grab your phone and wallet at 3 a.m. to order it over the phone. It’s affordable, it’s really easy to use, and it makes motoring–whether on a bike or in a car–a lot easier.
