    Be sure to use the threaded ring that came with the magnetic mount. They have a different thread pattern.

    There are dozens if not hundreds of those sort of magnetic mounts on Amazon, too. They all do the same thing, but that's not to say they all have the same ball and socket dimensions. I know a few people, myself included, have gotten theirs to fit without modifying anything, but others have reported they had to sand the ball on the HTH. The HTH I have the magnetic mount on is still going strong after about a year - no breakage of the socket or nut and it still supports the weight of my phone without sagging.

    Yes, I got mine to thread, without any sanding, but it takes an unreasonable amount of force and I have lots of experience with working with threads in general. Sanding sounds like a better idea, but it might make it too loose if the old part is used again, right?

    I noticed that, too. Good point to emphasize.

    True. In my case the original part was broken.
