      We use two of those for a car rig. We wanted something that would hold more than 5 lbs (ie: the anvenger swivel suction cup) and so we combined that with a few super clamps and it turned out into this incredibly sturdy car rig.

          This was a gift for my son. He is delighted with it and says that it holds his camera on his windshield although he does want to get a safety cable as well.

            Used to make videos with my d3s and the 14-24/2.8.

            The first time I used the product on my car I was a little bit afraid... But it appears that the suction cup works perfectly (50 km/h)... Highly recommendable!!

                Seems like a well made suction cup mount that works well.

                Picked this up when I was in a jam and needed some good in-car shots, but didn't have the space to tie down a tripod.
                It fit the bill very well, mounted easily and effectively to door windows, the windshield, and the sunroof (all interior).
                Effectively held a Nikon D300 w/MB-D10 grip, sporting everything up to a 17-55/2.8, and didn't lose grip once, even during the extended drives.
                Great mount, glad I picked it up!

                    Comments about Visual Departures Suction Cup Mount - 6":

                    I use this mount to secure a DSLR to various parts of a vehicle. Obviously, use a safety cable as a backup, but it's held a D3 with a 17-35mm lens without problem.

                    On a clean surface, the suction builds quickly and it's rock solid.

                    Like a previous reviewer, I'd like to see a 3/8" stud instead of a 1/4", but I haven't been able to snap it yet.

                      It works really well, and has never given any indication that it is losing it's grip. If I was to make one suggestion, it would be that the manufacturer replace the 1/4 20 thread with a 3/8" thread ... just for piece of mind.
