The SleekStrip is a phone stand and grip in one. The stylishly designed accessory allows you to firmly hold your phone on the go, or rest it safely on your desk or in the car. Its super-slim design makes it perfect for travel.


Billed as the world’s thinnest stand and grip, the SleekStrip is made with flexible metal and a rubber coating for a comfortable hold. At only 7 millimeters wide and 2.9 millimeters thick, you’ll barely notice it’s there. The accessory works with most wireless phone chargers and car mounts. It affixes to your phone with 3M adhesive for a strong hold, and can be held at different angles. Whether you’re standing with the phone held upright or lying in bed viewing The Office in landscape, the SleekStrip offers a comfortable grip. It also works as a stand at both angles, too.


SleekStrip comes in a variety of color combinations to match your phone or case, and at only $15 is a great deal. You can snag one for even cheaper by helping out with the fundraising campaign. First shipments of the stand and grip combo have already begun, so head over to the website for more information on features and ways to order.

Avoid the Crowds with a Second-City Honeymoon

Second-city travel is one of the hottest trends of 2020. It involves avoiding the over-crowded, over-touristed cities that are historically top travel destinations and visiting nearby, lesser-known destinations instead. Travelers are learning that, while well-known destinations are popular for a reason, less-popular cities also have plenty to offer with fewer crowds and cheaper costs.
