As part of the No Drill Laptop Vehicle Mount range, this mount has been designed specifically for use with the Panasonic Toughbook CF29 Laptop in the following vehicles:
The Laptop Vehicle Mount consists of four parts. The vehicle specific base, the RAM telescoping tele-pole, a RAM double swing arm system with the patented rubber ball and socket system and the RAM Tough Dock Tray for the Panasonic Toughbook CF-29 Laptop.

The No Drill Steel Plate Base installs quickly and easily to the existing bolts connecting the passengers seat to the vehicle floor. The base plate mounts in a position to maximize the passengers leg space while also creating a foundation for the RAM telescoping tele-pole.
The tele-pole has a height range of 12 to 18 inches and is easily adjusted by turning the knob at the top of the post. Once the knob has been tightened, the tele-pole becomes a rigid support for the Laptop Tough Dock Tray. Connected to the top of the tele-post is a double swing arm system which includes two 6 inch arm joined with a hand adjustable knob. The arms allow easy movement and positioning of the laptop tray for either the driver or the passenger.
The laptop tray is connected to the end of the arms with a patented rubber ball and socket joint which allows tilting adjustment to the tray as well as shock and vibration isolation.
The RAM Plastic Tough Dock is designed to hold the Panasonic CF-29 Toughbook Laptops. Built as tough as the Laptop itself, the RAM Plastic Tough Dock will securely hold your laptop no matter what the conditions - something you come to expect from RAM. The Tough Dock includes 2 serial ports, parallel port, 4 USB ports, external video, external keyboard port, mouse port, headphone/speaker jack, microphone jack, built in screen support and more.
VERY IMPORTANT INSTALLATION SAFETY NOTE:Improper installation of this base will cause a fault in the sensors built into the passenger side seat. It is crucial that the buyer or installer take special care when raising the front passenger seat or loosening the mounting bolts. Lifting the seat more than necessary to access nuts on underside of seat track will cause a fault. If buyer or installer is uncomfortable with the process of putting this kit in their vehicle, RAM strongly recommends not attempting to do so. We offer a variety of mounting solutions that can be either bolted down or utilize other mounting locations. This mount was designed for police and fleet vehicles that typically have only the driver occupying the vehicle. Contact DaimlerChrysler or a factory authorized technician for information on your vehicle and passenger side airbag deactivation should you decide to proceed. RAM Mounting Systems and parent company National Products Inc. assume no liability should these instructions not be followed. (Please read pdf file from manufacturer)

RAM Tele-Pole Vehicle Mount System:
The RAM Vehicle Mount Tele-Pole System is a unique patent pending design that allows varying height adjustments.
At the top of the tele-pole is a knob. With a small twist of the knob, the swing arm is free to rotate in a 360 degree circle in the horizontal plane, while the tele-pole is locked in the vertical position. With another small twist of the knob, the tele-pole is now free to move up and down for optimum mount positioning of your laptop in your vehicle.
This easy to operate vehicle mounting system is included in the entire RAM-VB Laptop Vehicle Mounts. As with all RAM Mount products, it is strong, easy to use and reliable and includes A LIFETIME MANUFACTURERS WARRANTY.
