RAM Mounts Locking Suction Camera Mount with Toughbar

We've integrated a camera mount as reliable when mounted on your kayak as it is on your car windshield. And with the addition of a Kayalu Toughbar™ extension, you can position your camera in the most optimal position possible.

The Kayalu KLR-5450-AT Locking Suction Camera Mount, with components manufactured by RAM Mounts and further enhanced by the addition of our accessories, provides a unique opportunity for you to secure your camera or speedlight using a locking vacuum cup design similar to the mechanical suction cups used by professional glass installers.

The KLR-5450-AT is constructed of premium-grade materials, all suitable for use in freshwater and saltwater environments.

The height of the KLR-5450-AT 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).

Because the Toughbar™ extension increases leverage at the base of this mount, the KLR-5450-AT 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 mounts.

At the base of the KLR-5450-AT 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 camera in a wide variety of positions, and locked into position with a single hand. These couplers are manufactured of high-strength composite and are tough as nails, easily capable of stabilizing your cameras, speedlights and other optics.

Atop the arm is an anodized aluminum ball with a 1/4"-20 screw (shown here at right), compatible with any camera or device ordinarily accepting a standard tripod screw. We add an EPDM rubber bushing on the stud to ensure a snug fit with your camera while protecting it from unnecessary scratches.

More about the power-locking suction...

The RAM Mounts locking suction cup at the base of this unit (image at above left) provides an exceptionally strong grip by comparison with competitive suction-based mounts. This mount, when moistened and cleanly affixed to any non-porous surface (glass, steel, fiberglass, enamel, plastic, etc.), can secure a camera, larger SLR, speedlight, video camera or other optical device weighing up to 2 lbs. (.9 kg).

The mount can be affixed to a glass window, fiberglass kayak, car fender or a boat windshield by power-locking its vacuum grip to the surface through the action of a mechanical lever arm. And when you want to remove the mount, you simply twist the lock counter-clockwise and pull up a small rubber tab.

To enhance the functionality of our KLR-5450-AT industrial quality camera mount, we include a marine-grade, nylon-coated bungee tether and a plated steel breech clip, which allow you to secure the mount in the event that the mount is bumped or the suction becomes disengaged.
