Vacuum Mounting Cups for Cameras, Scopes & Camcorders

We offers a selection of vacuum cups equipped with camera mounting heads. Both have many features of a tripod, but are designed for people on the go! Mount them on automobiles, boats, windows or counter tops. Knobs on the head provide infinite positioning and control for tilting and panning cameras, scopes and camcorders. These mounting cups provide a reliable, temporary fastener on almost any smooth, nonporous surface, such as metal or glass. Available in a range of styles to cover most applications and capacity requirements, they can be used to mount cameras, scopes, testing equipment, antennas, lights, signs, and much more. Mounting cups employ a threaded stud, female insert or tie-down bail to fasten accessories and equipment to the cup. Since mounting cups attach and release in seconds, they can be moved quickly from one place to another, without damaging most surfaces. Studs are available in various lengths and threads, including metric sizes.
