Q: What about using Selfie Stick It in cold climates?
A: You can, but it should should be applied to a clean, smooth surface when the temperature is above 10°C.
Q: How long will the Selfie Stick It hold to a surface?
A: The length of time varies depending on the surface and temperature. For these reasons only use for a temporary hold, time enough to capture a photo or short video. No longer than 60 seconds. Our technicians have tested the Twist in many environments and have reported hours of holding power but to be cautious remove from vertical surface within 60 seconds. For a more permanent hold the Selfie Stick It has a tab at the top to accept 3M Command strip hook #17006 available wherever 3M stips are sold. Create photo booth stations around your house this way, hang your phone for hours or days and use as a surveillance camera, for example. It uses an enhanced version of the gel used in medical EKG sensors.
If you are unsure of the surface, test the hold first without your phone attached. Make sure to clean the Selfie Stick It gel surface after each use.

A: An included, adjustable lanyard secures the Twist to the handle bar. Great for bike share programs, an instant mount on any bike or stroller.
