SlipStopper for iPhone 5 Review

I reviewed SlipStopper for the iPhone 4/4s back in July and found the product to be a big hit.  If you missed that review check it out here.

What are SlipStoppers?  The company who makes them says that Slip Stopper is a slim and stylish gel skin for the iPhone 5 that adds grip without the bulk. If you use your iPhone without a case you can have a peace of mind and no longer worry about your iPhone gliding or slipping out of your hands.  SlipStoppers are created from a unique gel resin, Slip Stopper adds grip but does not stick in your pocket. The material is scratch resistant and adds shock absorption. The patented 3M adhesive technology leaves absolutely no residue and is reusable.

Read on for my full review.

SlipStopper for the iPhone 5 is available in three colors.  You can choose from Black, White or Gray.

The product has been redesigned since the iPhone version in that the new iPhone 5 version is actually thinner.  That means you’ll be able to keep even more of the slim form factor of your phone in tact while still adding grip.

The product consists of three pieces.  Two for the front and one for the back.  You don’t get a screen protector and there’s no protection for the sides of your phone either.  These you’ll have to find elsewhere.

Simply remove them from the backing, align the individual pieces and stick them to your phone.

The back of the iPhone isn’t what I’d describe as grippy.  If anything it’s a little on the slick side.  What SlipStopper does is not only change up the look of your device by offering a glossy finish but perhaps more importantly adds grip so that you don’t mistakingly loose track of your precious phone.

The cutout on the back for the Apple logo is heavily recessed so you needn’t worry about something scratching the logo.

The product is easily removed.  Just be sure to save the backing piece that the SlipStopper comes on so that you can place the pieces back on to it.  This way you can reapply them again later should you desire.

One of the best thing about SlipStoppers is their guarantee.  They are super confident you’re going to LOVE Slip Stopper for your iPhone 5, and if for any reason you are unsatisfied with your purchase, just drop us them email and we’ll refund 100% of your money. You don’t even need to ship it back.
