How To Use Your New Tenikle

Using the suctions cups

1. Only attempt to suction to smooth non-porous surfaces.

2. Clean the mounting surface, ensure that the surface is free of dust or residue.

3. For best results, rinse the suction cup surface under running water to remove dust and residue.

4. Avoid any seams, logos or bevels on your phone's surface as air will be able to seep in.

5. Press firmly from the adjacent side of the suction cup to completely expel all the air from the suction cups.

Suitable Suction Surfaces:

✔ YES ✖ NO

Painted Wood




Smooth Plastic

Rough Plastic





Frosted Glass



Suction cups were invented in the 1860's.

A suction cup uses the negative fluid pressure of air to adhere to nonporous surfaces, creating a partial vacuum. Tenikle has not made any changes to this technology for its own application.

Suction cups can take some getting used to because of surface types, dust/dirt and the misconceptions around force needed to be applied to expel the air. But if used properly, they are able to adhere for weeks even months.

Secure Positioning

1. When wrapping Tenikle around an object, use two arms to wrap and one arm for your phone for a more secure mount.

2. Wrap from the center first then outward toward the end of the legs.

3. The more suction cups secured at a time, the more secure the mounting position.
