The survival story

I messaged you to say THANK YOU! I used the back magnet on the back of my iPhone to “temporarily” hold my phone on the ball of the crane while I was talking to a customer…

Then I completely forgot to grab my phone.

Long story short my phone made it down two miles of bumpy road on the ball of a crane just ON THE MAGNET!!! It’s not even a flat metal surface it’s a ball!! lol

Thank you guys!

The Rokform gear

Both Rokform smartphone cases come with the magnetic technology referenced in this survival story. In fact, our Rugged and Crystal case also include a magnetic Roklock plug which effectively doubles the magnet strength of the phone case. 

In case an accidental drop did happen, our shockproof cases both exceed military drop test standards and can be dropped from up to six feet.
