I come in Peace
Looks like an interesting product. I did not even bother to look at other options, partly because it’s what I know, and I like it, and I already have a bunch of RAM Mounts stuff. I had a big quick clamp Ram base,for a long time, the same one I used on the KLR in SA. The little clamp they sell just saved some space. The quickgrip, takes up a lot more real-estate though.
I did not even know they made aluminum arms! It’s a good reminder to just check all the gear on a regular basis. A lot of people struggle with that, or they get a “thing” pack it, or mount it and never use it or exercise it. Even the powder fire extinguishers should be tipped upside down month. Otherwise it will settle in the bottom and turn hard.
…Even though I should have known that, it was never mentioned in any Fire training. But I found out the hard way, and it was on the label. Go figure,
The guy who services our Fire Extinguishers at our warehouse told me to tap them with a rubber mallet on the bottom to extend their life too. So don't just turn it upside down, but also give it a few good taps with a mallet.
