These ram mounts are perfect. They are strong, adjust easily, well designed, heavy-duty, and just what I wanted. I use them together to hold my cell phone in my car. Perhaps that is overkill, but I hate the blurry view you get with other holders that don't hold things as stable. I screwed the base unit into the console on my vehicle, and use this arm and the X-grip to hold everything in place. Highly recommended.I almost balked at the price, but decided based on other reviews that I would simply be paying for the best. I was exactly right. You might might the price a bit, but you certainly won't mind the quality.
