‘Surprising’ $10 Kmart item Aussies love

Australians have discovered a $10 Kmart item that comes in handy when traveling by plane.

The “universal in-flight phone holder,” also available at Target, is being praised as a convenient solution when trying to watch movies on your phone during a flight.

Customers took to Kmart’s review section to brag about the product with one woman admitting she was “pleasantly surprised by how good it was”.

“It attaches to the back of the seat in front of you and you can adjust the angle,” he wrote in his review alongside a photo.

“Sturdy and doesn’t fall, great for watching movies so I didn’t have to hold the phone and look down!”

The holder is approximately 9.5cm long and fits most phones, with or without a case attached. It also has 360 degree adjustable rotation, with the clamp opening up to 4cm.

One customer tried it on a Jetstar plane and also gave it a rave review.

“Do everything you need and more (sic),” they wrote, giving it five stars.

“Tested on a Jetstar B787, it worked perfectly (despite the inflight entertainment screen).”

Another customer said it is a must especially when traveling by plane.

“Good little gadget, very adaptable to fit the seat,” one person wrote.

“I used it on my last interstate trip. It’s better to hold your phone in your hand and hurt your wrist! I love it. Easy to use,” read another review.

A Kmart spokesperson said the in-car phone holder has been in stores for almost a year now and has been “very popular” with customers.

“We love seeing how the product translates into people’s lives. Our customers are always finding new ways to make their flights and travel more comfortable,” the spokesperson told news.com.au.

Tricks for mounting your phone when traveling by plane

“We are constantly reviewing and updating our travel range to keep up with customer demand and to ensure we continue to offer our customers the best accessories to make their travel experiences enjoyable.

Our customers can continue to expect to see trendy, must-have items in our stores.”

In the meantime, if you happen to be without support, TikTok is full of alternative ways to watch movies on your phone during a flight.

The most popular is to use a piece of paper or a sick bag.

Described as “the ultimate airplane hack,” the trick has been shared by numerous TikTok users, including the “queen of hacks,” Anita Birges.

“This flying tip will completely change the way you travel. The last time I did this on a flight, I looked over and everyone in the row started doing it too.”

In the clip, Anita showed what to do on a Jetstar flight.

He explained that once seated, take the sick bag, remove the phone case, and place the bottom of the bag into the phone case.

“Put the phone back in the case, wedging the paper bag between the phone and the case,” he continued.

“Place about half of the sanitary bag on the end of the tray and hold it carefully as you fold the tray.

“Secure the tray using the slide bolt and you’re done! Relax and enjoy.
