The cradle's rugged composite backing plate features a pair of integral, double-reinforced spring-loaded arms that enable the unit to easily adjust its size to accommodate a variety of small tablets - with or without a case! On each end, the item boasts custom support cups that cushion/hold the enclosed device while facilitating unfettered access to all its ports, buttons, jacks, etc. Additionally, these cups are interchangeable, so users who upgrade to the latest & greatest electronic offerings need only swap out the ends for the appropriate replacement cups (sold separately). The cradle also comes with a set of four nuts and bolts, which allow users to secure it to virtually any RAM or third-party mount (sold separately) with the standard AMPs hole arrangement. Fits devices from 7.125"-9.5" H, 5.06"-5.68"W, and 0.13"-1" D. An outstanding option for hands-free situational awareness that effortlessly adapts to match the way you fly.
Not bad, but not for me
Not a bad mount, but ran into some problems that led me to return it. First, it's very thick. That is, even with an Otterbox Defender case on the iPad Mini, there is considerable extra room available, making it look as if the case is wearing an oversize coat. More problematic is the assembly. I read the directions, then watched several how-to's on the web; the construction of the mount is such that you must bend the plastic out of the way to drive the assembly screws with a screwdriver. This leads to difficulty getting the screws in straight, and difficulty tightening the screws without stripping the head. With a lot of care I was able to get nine of the ten screws in, but stripped the last one, leaving it sticking it up where it would scratch the iPad's case. On a positive not, Neil at Pilot Mall was helpful on the phone and gave me no problems with the return. I'll shop at Pilot Mall again, just not for that case.
