    I needed a phone holder so I can use it with Copilot, I've got a Garmin satnav bean bag holder and thought I could bodge something using that.
    A bit Blue Peter'ish without using sticky backed plastic or toilet rolls but using plastic tube and cable ties.

    How dare you quote Blue Peter without using sticky backed plastic or bog roll tubes! Go and wash your mouth out immediately! :sick:

    Blue tack isn't reliable!
    Driving along, Blue tack gives up, phone falls off, gets under your foot.................BANG!
    Either smashed phone or smashed van!

    Another bodge,
    The roof light in our bathroom doesn't lock in the first open position and when it's wind it can blow open. I did have a bit of elastic cord and paper clip which is ok but could be better, so a bit of thought and came up with this bracket that links the lock position with the first position. A bit of ally angle and 2 of m4 screws with 2 nuts on each screw.
