Mounts for Harley-Davidson Motorcycles

Each year I attend a large motorcycle event held in Northern New Jersey called Gooch’s Garlic Run.  It’s for a good cause and each year a few thousand bikers show up for the annual ride to downtown Newark.  You can read more about this worthwhile cause by checking their Facebook page.  Anyway, I always show up about an hour before the start so that I can get a good look all the bikes and take special interest in what mounts are in use.  I also noticed that the largest brand presence by far is Harley Davidson.  Hence, our article about … Read more

Car Dash Camera Mounts

Most dash cams have a typical 1/4 inch – 20 threaded hole at the bottom.  That’s a common pattern for tripods and there is a wide variety of camera mounts available for your car.  It’s worth noting that most action cameras make great dash cams.  That’s includes the very popular GoPro line.  The majority of action cameras also have that common screw hole pattern at the bottom.  If you have a GoPro, remove the weatherproof case from the camera and you will see that hole at the bottom.  The exception to the rule of the tripod hole is the Garmin … Read more

Car Headrest Mounts for Tablets, Phones and Cameras

Car headrests were first mandated to be installed in vehicles back in the 1960’s.  Headrests haven’t changed a lot since that time.  They are typically supported by a post on each side of the headrest.  These posts make an ideal mount point for tablets, phones and cameras.  Car headrest mounts are especially useful for keeping backseat passengers entertained with your tablet.  The posts to the headrest are typically the place where you would attach the mount.  The headrest is also a great place to mount a camera for taking video of the views in front or behind the car.  Let’s review … Read more

Car Air Vent Mounts

The air vent is one of my favorite mounting locations.  I like it because it keeps the device right where it’s convenient for you to see it.  I also like the fact that it keeps your device out of clear site of any potential bad guys.  Car air vent mounts are not clearly seen in a parking lot versus a traditional windshield suction cup mount or one for the dash.  Most dash mounts are easy to install.  Depending upon the vent mount, some are easy to remove (and some are not). Car air vent mounts are excellent for mounting a cell phone, … Read more
