The Kayalu KLR-5455-T Locking Suction GoPro® Hero Camera Mount provides a unique opportunity for you to secure your Hero, Hero2, Hero3 or Hero4 camera with a loss-proof camera adaptor, a rugged, aerodynamic extension arm and a locking vacuum cup design similar to the mechanical suction cups used by professional glass installers.
T is constructed of premium-grade materials, all suitable for
use in freshwater and saltwater environments.
The height of the KLR-5455-T is 15" (38 cm) from the bottom of its suction cup to the base of the camera. With a slightly larger Toughbar extension arm (see Options below) the height increases to 17" (43 cm).
Toughbar® extension increases leverage at the base of this mount, the KLR-
5455-T includes an anodized aluminum RAM diamond ball above the suction unit
(as shown in image with specifications, below) — not a high strength composite
ball suitable for shorter mounts as we ordinarily include in our Locking Suction
At the base of the KLR-5455-T is one of two RAM
Mounts coupler arms — this lower arm is spring loaded for convenient
adjustment. At the upper end of the Toughbar® extension rod is a second RAM
Mounts coupler. Both of these couplers have large handles which can be
loosened for positioning your Hero in a wide variety of positions, and
locked into position with a single hand.
At its head, this mount has a fiberglass composite adaptor compatible with all GoPro® Hero, Hero2, Hero3 and Hero4 cameras. Because this adaptor fits the GoPro housing directly, the GoPro tripod adaptor ordinarily required to mount a Hero on a camera mount is not required.
More about the GoPro Hero/Hero2/Hero3/Hero4 adaptor ball...
The GoPro adaptor ball eliminates the need for a factory GoPro tripod adaptor and additional components on the mount to screw into the tripod adaptor. For active paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts, this GoPro adaptor ball provides a virtually loss-proof method of attachment between camera and mount while allowing for quick release of the camera, eliminating the possibility of the Hero unscrewing at the base of the factory GoPro tripod adaptor. Secondly, the adaptor ball's stainless steel bolt and nylon-insert locknut further eliminate the possibility of loss of the Hero by its use of a locknut in place of the standard GoPro thumbscrew and acorn nut.
IMPORTANT: The GoPro adaptor ball is constructed of fiberglass composite, significantly more rugged than the thin ABS plastic used to manufacture the factory GoPro tripod adaptor. This GoPro adaptor ball includes its own stainless steel hardware -- bolt, washer and locknut. These hardware components work in friction with the GoPro Hero housing and are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED as an alternative to the GoPro thumb-screw in order to provide a tighter, loss-proof method of attachment between the camera and mount.
