THE WAIT IS OVER! Now you can finally mount your iPhone securely to your class 4 trailer hitch! No more duct tape and bungee cords holding your phone to the tailgate. Drive with confidence while amazing the people lucky enough to drive behind you!


Print both pieces and attach them to each other with m3 bolts, with the bolt head on the inside of the case pointing outwards. If your print is like mine, then you won't even need nuts!

The openscad file has a variable "assembled" that will either give you a printable plate, or a view of the two parts assembled. Choose wisely, grasshopper. The iphone trailerhitch file is dependent on iphone4 model, so grab them both.

I took pains to make this a printible piece, as I was disappointed by the sheer number of EvD entries that are unprintible, and wouldn't even work if they could be printed. If you want to print it out and show your friends how absurd it is - go for it! Otherwise, it's probably best if you keep your phone safely in your pocket.

This product is a parody, and is intended for the Engineer vs designer absurd iPhone contest. Save your breath if you want to tell me it is absurd. Or better yet, tell the fine folks over at EvD!

I'm wondering why or what are you doing with your iphone on the back of your vehicle? I'm not putting down the idea I'm just curious.

He said what why he is doing this right in the description:

"This product is a parody, and is intended for the Engineer vs designer absurd iPhone contest. Save your breath if you want to tell me it is absurd. Or better yet, tell the fine folks over at EvD! "

You could do it with a fake phone- would require some effort... Found a iPhone 6 here for 8.99, of course, many changes needed, just an idea.


Reminder, the phone could'nt play video or other things like that.

I plan to make one and put my old IPhone 3 in it and watch people freak out.

FYI that'll require some mods to the case. It is designed for the 4. It also needs some tabs to actually keep the phone in. But by all means - I'd love to be driving behind you!

Ya I figured as much. Once i get it mounted to my Ford Explorer ill post a pic haha.
