Customer Reviews

Excellent value and possibly crash proofThis is an inexpensive, sturdy, useful, and secure camera mount. It is easy to adjust and remove your camera once you have attached this product to the handlebar. I can literally think of no way to improve this product. It is an excellent value.I would recommend mounting the camera upside down, meaning the threaded camera mount hanging under the handlebars. You can mount it right side up above the handlebars, and it will hold your camera in place, but there will be more vibration. Perhaps vibration would be less of an issue with a motorcycle, but having never ridden one, I cannot say. You can use software to flip the video; I used XviD4PSP for this. It's free.I purchased this to secure a HD action camera to my bicycle handlebars to record my commute in the event of a traffic incident. Unfortunately, I was hit by a ~ 7,000 pound truck (hit & run driver...) soon after this purchase, and the camera stayed attached during the entire collision. My bicycle was destroyed, but this mount and the camera remained completely unharmed. It is in fact now attached to my new bicycle.I have since recovered fully. I will not provide further information about the incident I have related in this review, so please don't ask. 5This thing is sturdy for sureThis thing is sturdy for sure. I do have some trouble keeping my camera still while riding. The vibrations are completely messing up the film. Some other comment said to hang the camera upside down. I'm comfortable doing that, but I haven't tried it yet!The ability to move the camera's position via this mount's top portion might be a huge downside to this product. WHile my camera was shaking because the bike was shakingand also because the grip was loosening at the handlebar, it might have also been loosening at the top, since there is no way to tighten that very tight ball-socket connection. I did often rotate the camera and that did work very well. Maybe I'm just superstitious and they tested this design and found it better than a rigid mount. 5Stem snapped on second use (~20 miles paved path)I read roughly 40-50 reviews on Amazon before purchasing this product. I read the Arkon product description, hoping to find weight limits that the mount would support, but found nothing discrete.The CMP227 product listing does note that the mounting screw fits GoPro and Contour cameras. I have a Contour GPS, so I figured that this mount would be solid enough for my camera. The mounting instructions that arrived with the product show an outline of a camera that has nearly identical dimensions to the Contour camera line.I took a test run across paved suburban roadways in a well-funded municipality. The mount allowed the camera angle to sink a bit over the course of ~10 miles, but it was not a major problem to readjust.Upon viewing the video back home, I experienced more vibration that previous reviews had me anticipating. To remedy this, I opted to use my Contour GPS's "Continuous Photos" feature instead of capturing video on my next ride.I rode for roughly 20 miles through a mixed-use paved path before my mount stem unexpectedly snapped on a smooth area of the path while I was maintaining consistent speed, elevation, and direction. My camera took damage across the lens and battery/memory card door when it fell to the side of the path. I had followed the mounting instructions that I received with the product and had not allowed extreme environmental conditions to affect the mount.Arkon requires $9 to replace my mount using the 90 day "In Warranty Procedure". I spent $13.06 on my Arkon mount when I purchased it on March 26, 2013, making this warranty replacement cost 69% of the original cost. I see that it is currently selling for $7.62, which makes the warranty process seem incongruous for current potential customers.I have used other types of mounts with my Contour GPS (car dash, fixed surface, headband, clamp) and none have faulted. I've had my Contour GPS since December 2011, and it received its first scratches using the Arkon mount today (April 3, 2013).Summary:I used my Arkon mount twice for a total period of 3 hours, and it snapped causing my camera to receive damage that hinders its ability to operate correctly. The warranty process is not agreeable for a customer with my experience. I would not recommend using this product. 1> DOES THE JOBEVALUATION> A good solid semi-permanent camera mount for ~1" (25mm) handlebars/rods/pipes/poles, with easy (but limited range) tilt adjustment, for lightweight cameras.DESCRIPTION> 2 1/2" wide X 1 1/2" X ~3" high to tip of camera screw when installed on a ~1" rod/pipe/pole.> Comes with 2 rubbery pads which help grip the pole and absorb vibrations.> Grips a ~1" rod/pipe/pole using 1 of the rubber pads.>-> Could be installed on a ~1 1/8" pole without any pads, but probably would not grip as well, and you'd loose the vibration dampening.>-> Could be installed on a 7/8" or smaller pole with both pads and/or additional padding, but might not grip as well.> Range of tilt 45 degrees from vertical, 90 degrees total.> For relatively lightweight equipment only, particularly on a bike or motorcycle.> Oddly, the upper and lower portion of the mount are separated (as shown in the photo) by 3/8" when installed on a ~1" rod/pipe/pole.COMPARED TO A TRIPOD BALLHEAD (available on some similar mounting devices)> IN SHORT: The ballhead of the Arkon mount works well, better than a tripod ballhead in some respects or applications, but it is not as versatile as a tripod ballhead.> A tripod ballhead with a comparable size ball would be taller, which results in unwelcome leverage making it easy to push your camera etc. out of orientation.> The Arkon ballhead is movable when moderately tightened, and stays in place better than an ordinary ballhead. So, it is easy to position and reposition just by grabbing your camera and moving it where you want.> When locked-down tight the Arkon ballhead ballead is less likely to spontaneously loosen than a comparable tripod ballhead.> The Arkon ballhead does not have the multiple independent movements of a tripod ballhead. You screw on your device and then lock it in position. For example, there is no independent way to tighten your equipment on or to (in effect) adjust the length of the camera screw-thread.> Tripod ballheads allow a full 180 degrees range of movement (tilt),the Arkon only 45 degrees from the vertical, 90 degrees total.> The Arkon is all plastic, tripod ballheads are metal.>-> The ball of the Arkon ballhead can pop out of its socket (if you mount heavy equipment and hit a hard bump--likely resulting in damage to your camera).>-> The Arkon ballhead can can snap off at the neck (if you mount heavy equipment and hit a hard bump--likely resulting in damage to your camera).> Click on Stoney just below the product title to see my other reviews, or leave a comment to ask questions. 5Also Great for Indoor Training!!!I needed a mount holder for my tablet adapter (which I use with my computer, 24in screen, bicycle trainer, Zwift, Racermate, VeloReality videos and other cycling apps for indoor training). I have a mic stand set up with a boom extension running in front of my handlebar. I've attached my phone, tablet and bike computer to this boom so that I can view all devices with ease. This holder is the perfect companion for the Accmor Tablet Tripod Adapter (which holds my tablet to the boom). With this holder, I can pan the tablet to the right or left for the perfect viewing angle. I'm very happy with the setup. 5Protection plan is an ounce of prevention you could useIt's probably worth getting the protection plan because you easily can overtighten it.My MTB handlebars were a good size for this mount. The mount reduced the amount extra vibration that I'd get with other mounts. It was solid. When I'd switch bikes, I'd tighten the mount to the same amount each time. That being said eventually the bottom piece split at the center as I was tightening the screws. It's an affordable amount for a camera mount and I'm still considering buying it again, with a protection plan this time. 3Neck snapped off, shattered my camera case's glass.Purchased this along with my brand-new Sony HDR-AS50. During my very first bike ride with it, the neck snapped off unexpectedly, camera went flying down the road. The Sony case lens shattered. Thank goodness I even had the case on it rather than mounting the camera only. I was unable to record the rest of my incredibly scenic ride (Cascade Emerald City Ride, where they shut down several freeways and bridges; the unique ride was part of the reason I bought this to begin with, but unfortunately was unable to capture all of it). Not sure if this was a faulty unit, or by design the neck is not supposed to handle any cycling bumps/vibrations. I am thinking the latter, because this is not the only review this happened with. You get what you pay for, I suppose. I'd love to get reimbursed for the $60 waterproof case that shattered during its very first use, but I'm guessing that is a stretch. 1Don't over tighten the screws!I bought this to replace the mount for my cell phone case. I own an Arkon cell phone handlebar mount, luckily the "ball" was the same size on this mount. The reason I needed it was because I broke the first mount when I was installing it on my motorcycle. Be very careful not to over tighten the screws. I love the mount, but I only gave it 3 stars because there is a fine line between the screws being tight enough to secure your camera/phone and not being so tight that the plastic around the screw housing breaks. 3Piece of crap... Not suitable for Mountain BikingBought this mount to attach Kodak Playsport ZX5 and GoPro cameras to my Santa Cruz Blur LTC mountain bike. Getting it to fit tightly on the upriser handlebar was a pain in the ... Never got it to stick, and if you tighten to much the screw heads wash away. First ride with GoPro and after 2mile descent on technical trail, the mount came loose, screws untightened from vibration and all I got is a video of the camera looking straight to the ground. I use pro grade suspension from FOX which is pretty soft, but the camera mount absorbs cero impact. The video with a GoPro camera was a constant shake and rattle... Worthless footage.Test2: Kodak Playsport ZX5. First ride the camera pivot would not stay in place, constantly moving back and forth, side to side, useless footage of the sky, the ground, but few glimpses of the actual trail... almost had a serious fall trying to set the camera pivot into the right trail direction while descending. Second ride: went on a long 9km descent. After 1km I started having the same problem, camera would not stay looking at the desired angled, after stoping three times to set desired view, the camera started wobbling like crazy, like a pendelum. Going over some rocks the camera mount just snapped and the camera went flying into the ground. Entire screw came off its base. Lucky for me the camera landed in some bushes and it is a sturdy product, it survived the incident. As for the mount, it is pretty much useless for mountain biking, design has serious flaws, and the pivot attachment is made of very poor quality materials. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. 1Good, except this one thing.Pros:-Pretty sturdy little device.-Light-Rubber platform under the 1/4" thread-Fits my RODE Micro Boompole to connect my H4n (or H1) to the poleCons:-Sometimes the head will spin while you tighten it - somehow you have to hold the top of it while it tightens. A little hinky.-Rotating head could be lower in my opinion (see reason for use above)-1/4" thread is too long (See Other Thoughts)Other Thoughts:1/4" thread is too long to connect my H4n on to it. I needed to grind it down about 1/8" to make it fit. Not realizing how hot the metal thread was getting on the bench grinder, it suddenly popped out of the plastic head. I tried fixing it by re-drilling a hole through the head, but to no avail. Time to buy a new one (or one with a shorter thread).Bottom line: This clamp is pretty sturdy; I would recommend it. However, if you need to mount an Zoom H4n or H1 (or even a digital camera), you may want to consider grinding it down (carefully!) or find another that has the right height of thread. Learn from my mistakes. 4
