Product Questions

Do RAM mounts really dampen shock and vibration? 
The answer is yes. The patented design utilizes a rubber ball-and-socket construction that greatly reduces the amount of vibration that can be transmitted into electronics. No other mounting system on the market today offers this feature in a more durable, compact, and functional way.

I have lost my hardware. Can I buy hardware? 
If there is no hardware pack part number available, the hardware cannot be purchased separately. The entire product would need to be purchased again.
