Have you ever looked at your car's stereo and wondered what that weird horizontal opening was for? Believe it or not, people used to listen to music there. That's right. They would insert these weird, flimsy discs commonly called "CDs" often because they wanted to skip portions of songs or listen to the same line repeating over and over. Ancient humans were odd indeed. Now you can make use of that slot for something far more useful. Mpow's 051 car phone mount and holder (opens in new tab) is on sale for $5.99 with code B8NQTFD9 on Amazon. This car phone mount fits into that archaic "CD slot" and gives you a place to secure your phone so you're not tempted to use your hands. The mount normally sells for around $13 and only drops in price with codes like this.

If you don't listen to CDs anymore, it's the perfect spot for a mount. Works for phones between 4.7" and 6.8" including Android and Apple smartphones. Uses three side grips to keep your phone secure. Has 360 degree rotation for finding angles.

The mount's design includes a deep arm that can extend from 1.8 inches to 3.8 inches. It will hold any smartphone with a screen size between 4.7 and 6.8 inches, and it is platform agnostic so you can mount your iPhone 11 or your Galaxy Note 10.

The phone is gripped on three sides so it's absolutely secure, and it is easily released by hitting the little button on the sides. While your phone is secured in the mount's grasp you'll be able to rotate it 360 degrees to find the perfect viewing angle and profile. Once mounted you'll be able to use GPS, answer calls, or play music like a normal human without your phone distracting you from the road.

You will get some anti-skid rubber pads along with the car mount and base. Users give it 4.4 stars out of 5 based on more than 17,000 reviews (opens in new tab).

Of course with how inexpensive this mount is, you'll need an Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) account to get free shipping. Otherwise, you'll have to reach $25 in your cart to get above that free shipping threshold. Now would definitely be a good time to sign up for Prime though since we're already seeing a lot of great Black Friday deals.
