Facts About RAM Mounts Twist-Lock Composite Suction Cup Base with Ball RAP-B-224-1U with B Size 1" Ball
Yes, this suction cup comes with a B size ball.
The ram mount must have airtight suction to hold its vacuumed grip, it will hold to laminate but not permanently as the laminate will allow for air to seep through which will cause it to lose its grip.
One of our suctions cups is able to support up to 2LBs.
Can’t comment on the water issue, but I will say that the suction piece holds phenomenally well in constant high sun exposure. It has come off only once in about 8 months of constant use for me. The cup piece is very large, giving it a lot of surface area to grab. If anything would work for you, this would be it.
The RAP version does not include the ball.
This item comes disassembled; you have to attach the ball to the base. So I assume there are many ball sizes available.
This suction cup is 3.3" in diameter.
Suction cups require an extremely smooth and clean surface to create the vacuum required to keep them in place. They can work well against smooth plastic and metal surfaces but they tend to get the best results against glass.
I highly doubt it. I would never think to try sticking any suction cup to wood regardless of how smooth it feels; there’s still grain that will allow air to get under it. It’s glass or nothing for me.
As long as the surface is smooth I think it would work. If there is any texture, I think you’ll have problems.
The suction "cup" works best on a flat surface. How slight is "slightly curved surface"? My guess is it is doubtful it will work.
This question cannot be answered. All the parts of the ram system have to work together because there are different sizes. The size of the ball has to match the size of the ball receptacle. It has nothing to do with what you’re mounting to it.
Yes it does. 🙂
Yes I do. As well as the other options, ram mount products are top quality in performance the ball allows for multiple angles of adjustments.
Info About RAM Mounts Twist-Lock Composite Suction Cup Base with Ball RAP-B-224-1U with B Size 1" Ball (Reviews From Amazon)
I’ve heard for years how awesome RAM was and finally save my pennies to buy a $50+ Mount for my car. And just after a month of use it breaks. Honestly it was probably the worst mount that I’ve had it shook violently more than any cheap-o mount I’ve owned I can’t tell you how disappointed and frustrated I am.
I contacted RAM and they have a lifetime warranty on their products. They sent me a new one free of charge.
This thing is amazing! I drive a semi, and I go over all kinds of bumps, potholes, and railroad tracks. In addition to that, I get out of my truck several times a day, and put pressure on this suction cup to put my phone in/out of the holder attached to it. I haven’t had to re-attach this suction cup to my windshield since I installed it. It’s strong! I highly recommend RAM products. Get one, you won’t be sorry.
Have a Ram mount that I’ve use in the Jeep and on motorcycles for some time – bought this to suction onto the window or elsewhere to support and iPad mini for Garmin Pilot use.
One twist locked it down to the glare shield in the Cessna, and no hint of movement through the last several flights despite significant vibration.
RAM just builds everything like a rock. This suction cup mount is a serious bit of kit, and I have no problem trusting my ipad to it, just make sure the surface you are sticking to is not porous. I have RAM mounts holding phones to my bicycle, two motorcycles, my truck, 3 places in my big boat, and also in my two small boats. I even use RAM mount sockets with magnets holding doors open. This is great stuff.
This thing is awesome. I’ve gone through a million contraptions to hold my GPS, and this is by far the best. The suction cup piece is large, so it has a big area to grip the windshield. It does not fall off, even in 100+ degree temps. The RAM mounts system is very versatile to accommodate cell phones and other electronics. I also use it for a backup camera mount. These are products of high quality that work as intended, which is becoming increasingly rare. Highly recommended!
There’s a reason the RAM mounts have been around for so long and still command a premium- they’re designed and manufactured to hold your gizmos securely, wherever you want them, and hold them well. This particular base is very easy to attach and remove from the windshield or other smooth surface, but still hangs on tight enough that I never had a moment of concern about my phone coming down.
I bought it to hold a TC Clarity monitor but the weight was more than the suction could handle. Had to get something else. Don’t get me wrong the suction cup is good but for less stuff that weighs.
I use these for iPad mounting in aircraft. RAM mounts are versatile and are quality products, i haven’t been let down yet. The suction cup is ridiculously strong, im pretty sure i could climb a glass building with this thing. Price was good considering its amazon. would recommend and buy again
I’ve had a heavy 6″ gps attached to it on my window now for at least 2 months. Still holding fine & the seal I see from the outside hasn’t dried out a bit. Much better than the product that came from garmin.
Actually this is my 1st suction cup mount. I don’t have a lot to compare to but this little cup looks pretty awesome I have used it in the same car for over 3 days at a time no problems in the cold and the heat.
I have used many ram mount products this so far is my favorite. I really enjoy the quality and grear ideas they have. Both for motorcycle and car.
