The Snap Mount
Our MobileDemand Rugged tablet cases all come with a snap mount as standard. The snap mount is made with ease in mind, it can make your fixed tablet portable with one simple push of a lever. You’re probably wondering, what does the snap mount to? Now the answer to this question depends on the environment you are working in but let’s cover some of the options that we have available.
No Drill Vehicle Mount
The pole/rail mounts comes in a couple of configurations, you can either get a claw which will wrap around a pole or rail, making for easy attachment and removal without the requirement for tools.
Alternatively, you can use two plates which tighten around the pole for a fitting you do not plan on moving often, this also offers a much more secure mounting point for adjustable arms. This solution is often used in warehouses, production, and construction.
The magnetic mount is self-explanatory, it is an ideal mount for somewhere with a lot of metal mounting points. It’s excellent for on-the-move mounting.
Though it is recommended that you either use a snap mount only or a C/D Ball on a short arm – to ensure the magnet does not fall off.
When it comes to mounting arms there are 3 common choices
Long Fixed Arm: An arm perfect for uses where the device needs to be far from the mounting point but benefits from stiffness and no manoeuvrability
Standard Fixed Arm: An arm for having the device parted from the surface.
Short Fixed Arm: An arm ideal for having the device close to the mounting point where manoeuvrability is not needed.
