Using Multiple Extension Arms
Toughbar Extension Arms can be linked in succession to produce a
snaking arm. The Toughbar's steel rod and RAM Mounts
coupler are both extremely
durable, allowing multiple arms to remain stable
while maintaining a heavy
IMPORTANT: The Kayalu Toughbar, particularly when supporting a payload weighing over 8 ounces (226 g), creates leveraged force at the base of your existing mount. For this reason, we recommend that your existing mount have an aluminum RAM Mounts ball (such as on Kayalu Parker rigid mounts and nClamp products) rather than a high-strength composite RAM Mounts ball.
The Kayalu Toughbar Elbow is not recommended for use in the following applications:
•Suction mounts carrying payloads heavier than 8 ounces (226 g) installed on surfaces that are subject to vibration or bouncing, such as on automobiles and all watercraft. For such applications, we recommend a Kayalu Parker series rigid mount.
•Tension mounts (i.e. Kayaball, Kayacam) subject to impact, jarring, vibration or bouncing. Tension-based mounts are engineered to manage leverage exerted by their payloads at a particular height from the base, and do not support Toughbar extensions. For such applications, we recommend a Kayalu Parker series rigid mount.
•Mounts having a plastic or high-strength composite RAM Mounts ball at their base.
If your existing mount has a high-strength composite ball at its base (such as found on our standard Kayalu/RAM Locking Suction mounts) we recommend the purchase of an aluminum diamond base (RAM-B-238) to replace the high-strength composite diamond base (RAP-B-238). See our Extras to purchase the RAM-B-238.
If you are interested in a suction cup mount with a Toughbar extension, view our Kayalu / RAM Locking Suction line. We include an aluminum ball at the base of each of our Locking Suction mounts that ship with a single Toughbar extension pre-installed.
RAM Mounting Systems products are made and
assembled in the USA. Toughbars ship assembled and tested.
