RAM Balls are an essential component of the RAM Mount patented design. When combined with the rugged socket arm, they provide a base that absorbs shock and vibration and maintains a sturdy hold. This type of stability is essential when you’re traveling with a valuable electronic device in a vehicle, on a boat, or in any aggressive-use environment. There are five standard RAM Mount ball sizes, and it’s very important to choose the right ball base if you’re assembling or repairing a mount. If you’re looking to replace a ball on a particular mount, you can refer to the mount’s product page to see which ball is used. If you’re looking to build your own assembly, you’ll need a ball that can accommodate the combined weight of the mount and the device that it holds.
OC Mounts carries all RAM Mount ball sizes, so you can find exactly what you need. The size of the ball impacts the amount of weight that the mount can bear and also the amount of abuse it can take. The sizes are as follows:
A size ball - 0.56" diameter

C size ball - 1.5" diameter - Holds about 10 lbs.
