The RAM High Strength Plastic Rail Mount consists of the 1" dia. ball and socket system with RAM Universal Top Clamping Plastic Cradle for PDA Units.
The High Strength Plastic Rail Base has a 1.0 inch diameter Rubber Ball designed to sit at right angles to the mounting rail. The Rail 'U' Clamp will fit a circular rail with diameter up to 1.0 inch.
For a larger rail, you can purchase the RAM-B-231Z Aluminum Rail Base with Zinc Coated U-Bolt for circular rails with diameter from 1/2 to 1 3/8 inches.
NOTE: Placing a rubber lining (not included) between the tube and the mount for a tube with a diameter less than 1.0 inch will help the base 'grab' the rail.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR MOTORCYCLES USES:
This base is NOT recommended for Motorcycles due to the heavy vibration. An alternative would be the RAM-B-231 Stainless Steel U-Bolt Base and the RAM-B-149 Stainless Steel U-Bolt System.
The High Strength Plastic Standard Length Double Socket Arm is 3.0" long when measured between socket centers.
