Nite Ize Steelie Orbiter Smartphone Mount Offers Solution to Eliminate Distracted Driving

July 23, 2018

BOULDER, Colo., July. 23, 2018 – With the devastating increase of accidents caused by distracted driving, thirty-six U.S. states now prohibit or restrict the use of handheld devices while operating a vehicle.* Motorists need in-vehicle solutions that eliminate distraction and comply with hands-free laws. The new Nite Ize® Steelie® OrbiterTM was designed as a low-profile, powerful magnetic mounting system that securely displays mobile phones in the car without interfering with the view of the road. With two convenient ways to display the phone and navigate hands-free, the Steelie Orbiter will be available soon as a Dash Mount Kit, Vent Mount Kit or individual Magnetic Socket Component. 

The Steelie Orbiter features an ultra-thin metal plate that adheres to nearly any phone or case using 3M® 300LSE adhesive and connects with the Orbiter Magnetic Socket. The socket’s patented design contains a silicone center and powerful neodymium magnet that creates a firm grip and provides a smooth 360-degree rotation around the Dash Mount or Vent Mount. When a phone is clicked in place on the mount, a unique non-slip silicone ring compresses between the metal plate on the phone and the Orbiter Magnetic Socket. By combining the grippy benefits of high- friction silicone with powerful magnetic strength, the Orbiter provides a secure hold, even on rough roads. 

The Dash Mount attaches to most vehicle dashboards semi-permanently with a strong 3M VHB can be removed without damage to the surface, and consists of a high-quality steel ball that is press-fit into a machined aluminum base. The Vent Mount features a cast aluminum body with a cam locking lever that secures the mount to nearly any vehicle vent, and a stainless steel ball that connects to the Orbiter Magnetic Socket. The adhesive, which intuitive design of the Steelie Orbiter allows for smooth adjustment and rotation for the perfect viewing angle. 

The Steelie Orbiter Dash Mount Kit and Vent Mount Kit will be available soon on for $34.99. The Orbiter Magnetic Socket is available as a component only for $19.99, and is compatible with all Steelie mounts. For more information about these Steelie products and others from Nite Ize, visit
