ARKON MINI WEIGHTED DASHBOARD NON SKID FRICTION MOUNT CUSHION with safety hook SM012 (SKU 6214)SKU: 6214
New smaller size Arkon Universal Friction Mount suitable for use with ALL windshield / windscreen suction cup arms and pedestals.
Compatible with GPS SatNav systems by TomTom, Garmin, Navman, Navigon, Mio, Binatone, RAC, ProNav, Clarion, BBNav, Snooper Indago, Becker, Typhoon My Guide, Motonav, Actis, Foehn & Hirsch etc and Mobile / Smart Phones like the Apple iphone, HTC & Blackberry or PDS's which have a suction cup mount.
Basically if your device has a functioning suction cup mount then this Dashboard mounting option could work for you.
The SM012 is 30% smaller than the original Arkon Friction Mount but with all the same features of the full size version.
Unlike Ring or Donut style Beanbag Mounts the unique U-Shaped rim design of the Arkon Weighted Friction Dashboard Mount allows room you to lower your windscreen suction cup pedestal for optimal viewing of SatNavs including the low sitting GPS models.
Suitable for all the TomTom Via, TomTom Go series, TomTom One series, TomTom XL series, TomTom XXL & TomTom START and all of the Garmin range.
Remember: This mount works with your own suction cup mount.
The Arkon Friction mount works by using a combination of weight and the friction caused by the neoprene base against your dashboard.
In the centre of the mount is a super smooth area where you place suction mount arm.
Still not sure? View the video below.
This video shows the FULL size friction mount but the principle is the same.
Anti-skid material on base prevents movement of mount when placed on a flat area of the dashboard or console.
Friction cushion measures: approx 7 1/2" (19cm) across, 6 1/4" (16cm) front to back & 1 1/2" (4cm) high reducing to 0.4" (1cm)
Includes the optional adhesive safety hook that attaches to the loop on dash mount.
A perfect alternative for those who prefer NOT to view their SatNav from the windscreen.
The U-Shaped rim design is more optimal than many fully enclosed Non-Skid mounts as it allows you to lower the windshield pedestal for optimal viewing.
The smooth flat centre of the friction mount acts as a base for your suction cup window mount
Suitable for suction cups upto 75mm.
Easily transferred from one vehicle to another.
Why smaller? Now SatNav systems are smaller in size and lighter in weight the full size option is not necessary.
Please note: The windshield suction pedestal is NOT included with this product.
Do not place the Weighted "Friction Style" Dash Mount or any other mounting solution in an airbag deployment zone.
The video shown below is of FULL SIZE Arkon Friction mount but the basic principle remains the same only the size differs.
