The Kayalu Toughbar™ is a premium-grade 14.5" (37 cm) hardened stainless steel extension arm compatible with all RAM Mount assemblies using RAM′s 1-inch "B" ball including camera mounts, GPS mounts, iPhone and iPod mounts, fishfinder mounts, binocular mounts — virtually any device mount that uses RAM Mounts' popular 1-inch "B" size ball-and-socket system and having a fixed base.
A Toughbar of this length is not recommended for use extending mounts having a single suction cup.
We manufacture the Toughbar using 100% original RAM Mount components with the addition of our own stainless steel extension rod and UV-resistant PVC tubing.
The Toughbar is compatible with:
• Kayalu ParkerMount™ Extension Arm Mounts
• nClamp™ mounts
• All RAM Mounts assemblies using the standard 1-inch "B" ball
The Toughbar includes a RAM Mounts high-strength composite coupler to add an extra degree of versatility to the mount.Using Multiple Extension Arms
Multiple Toughbar Extension Arms can be linked in succession to produce a highly flexible 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 payload.
IMPORTANT: The 14.5" 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.
This 14.5" Toughbar is not recommended for use in the following applications:
- Suction mounts having a single suction cup.
- 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 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.
Toughbar™ and RAM Mounting Systems products are made and assembled in the USA. Toughbars ship assembled and tested.
