FAQ >> RAM Mounts Locking Suction FAQ
Are suction cups reliable for boating / paddling applications?
We at Kayalu will not manufacture, sell or recommend the use of ANY suction-cup based product for use on life-safety gear — particularly navigation lights which may be mounted out of reach or out of view of a paddler or boater.

In the process of developing new products using components from RAM Mounting Systems, however, we successfully tested mounts for cameras and electronic devices that used the RAM Mounts Locking Suction Cup.


We found that the RAM Mounts Locking Suction Cup proved far more rugged and reliable than any competitive suction-based mount.

The power-locking mechanism and all components are constructed using marine-grade stainless steel hardware including screws, pins and washers.

We are continuing to integrate this component into new products that are typically mounted within reach of a paddler or boater, and on which the safety of the user would not be compromised if the suction cup was disengaged.

Our products that employ the RAM Mounts Locking Suction Cup, such as our KLR-5600 Aqua Box® Mount and our KLR-5450 Camera Mount, each include our own premium quality, nylon-coated bungee tether and a steel breech clip to protect your valuable equipment from loss if the mount is bumped or accidentally disengaged.
