Matthews 415175 Overview

The Matthews Indie Mount Kit is a vehicle-mounting solution for DSLRs, action cameras, and other compact cameras. It combines suction and tethering to keep your camera secure and safe. The components consist of MicroGrip technology support, vacuum suction cups, an articulating camera mount, and a quick strut triangulating system to securely and safely mount your camera onto moving platforms with smooth nonporous surfaces such as automobiles, RVs, boats, windows, and even countertops. The non-marring rubber pads protect the surface you are attaching to and help absorb micro-vibrations that could otherwise affect the shot or cause the rig to come loose.

Setting up a car shot with the Indie Mount Kit is simple, fast, and can be accomplished in mere minutes. Start by mounting the main 6" cup with the articulating camera mount, and after mounting your camera and framing the shot, secure the mount with the support cup and arm. The included struts provide safety to your setup. The Indie Mount kit includes different-length Micro Grip rods (4, 8, and 12") that can be attached via 1/4"-20 threads, giving you a dynamic reach of 4 to 32" for the second support cup. The kit comes in a convenient carry bag to keep it together when not in use.

Quick Struts

The quick struts not only keep your camera from falling if the suction cups come loose, but they are also used to triangulate and keep pressure on the mount to help keep it in place. With the quick struts, you simply attach the two hooks and pull the loose end of the rope for a secure, tight hold. The quick struts stay tight, providing you with the confidence you need when your camera is hanging off a moving vehicle. To loosen them, just pull the rope to reduce tension and push the release button. Each strut has a 75 lb load limit.

Vacuum Cups

Because the vacuum suction cups attach and release in seconds, they can be moved quickly from one surface to another. The pad is constructed from rubber to help prevent damage to most surfaces and to help eliminate micro-vibrations produced by the vehicle's engine. A spring-balanced pump ensures a consistent vacuum level and a red line indicator warns if there is any drop in holding power. Just a few strokes on the plunger will remove the air from between the mount's vacuum pad and the mounting surface. As long as the mount maintains a reliable hold, the plunger remains partially hidden inside the pump and the red line is not visible. If the red line appears, another stroke or two will restore full holding power. A firm push or pull on the rubber tab at the edge of the pad releases the mount. Each vacuum cup is supplied with a pad protector.
