Q: My laptop / device is extremely heavy, where / how do you recommend mounting it in my car / truck or on my motorcycle / ATV?

A: Our mounts are extremely heavy-duty and can support any device weighing up to 185lbs in any vehicle in any situation. For heavier devices with bigger surface areas such as larger laptops we would normally recommend using products such as the seat-mate or a swing-arm / tele-pole system for guaranteed support.

Such systems are recommended when a passenger seat / extra space is available, but when travelling in / on smaller vehicles such as ATV’s or bicycles it’s important to consider the practicality of your mount. In variable off-road environments, moving parts in some devices such as hard-drives in laptops are easily damaged due to vibration so be sure to consider solid-state drives and components in your chosen devices when mounting as RAM will not be held responsible for goods damaged under these circumstances. Despite this, damage may still occur when using other mounting solutions, which is why the unique shock and vibration dampening in our mounts make RAM the safest choice available.

Q: Do you offer an installation service?

A: If you're a business customer requiring multiple installations we offer a variety of services up and down the country. For further information please contact our support team using our contact form. If you're not a business customer we recommend that you contact your local dealer for further advice / assistance in your local area.
