J, May 13, 2013 The main reason I bought this was due to my experience with just the regular RAM-234-3 Tough Tray in my old vehicle setup. When installing or removing the laptop, the spring liked to pull the ends of the tray together very quickly. This made it annoying and somewhat difficult when installing bigger laptops. The Secure-n-Motion Kit allows you to "lock" the tray to any width, even if nothing is mounted. Very nice!
With the old setup I already upgraded to the Flat Side LegKeepers and was glad to see these were also included with the Secure-n-Motion Kit.
When road testing the Secure-N-Motion Kit (after assembly and installation), I noticed the spring was hitting the locking bar underneath and making a very annoying sound over every bump in the road. My simple solution was cutting (split long ways) a rubber hose 2-3” in length and then wrap it around the spring. This works great and was (in my case) free.
Sean, September 18, 2012 Overall this kit works great. I mainly bought it because it
allows you easily close your screen and still have the
confidence that the tray has a good hold on your laptop. It
is also nice to be able to lock the tray. The keepers come
with rubber pads for the side of the keeper but should also
come with a pad for the underside of the keeper tab.
John, February 1, 2012 Very nice product, Keeps the base locked and
secured. Recommend that you flip tray over as knob is big and
tight against dashboard.
Tom, April 14, 2010 This seemed like a decent way to "lock" my Toughbook down on
the RAM desk. I had been using a standard RAM desk for 3 or
4 years with a slim Gateway notebook, so I knew I would need
to upgrade the side brackets. While discussing this with a
store representative on the phone, she suggested this kit.
It sounded and looked better than a mere cable lock, so I
added it to the order.
Well, I spent a couple hours getting the parts to fit and
making do with some missing washers, and I mounted it on the
pedestal last night. All looked good, except the locking
knob only worked in one direction (to tighten the lock), but
not in reverse. I needed to manually pull the slide open in
order to remove the Toughbook. OK, I could put up with this,
since it looks like it's secure.
This morning, however, while driving to the office, the main
spring rattled and bumped against the large metal tube,
making a constant noise that was intolerable. I would never
be able to hear my two-radios over the rattling!
Tonight I am taking all of this off and restoring the old
spring, which still requires a wad of tissue for dampening,
but remains quiet after this little fix. The side brackets
work just fine (a separate item on my order), so I will be
keeping them, However, I'm disappointed that the locking
system isn't what it should be, and even if that worked, the
rattling spring problem needs a thin plastic flexible tube
around it to keep the driver sane.
