My Suction Cup Doesn’t Stick Anymore! Help!

Yes, we sell mounts for a living.  However, sometimes, you don’t need to buy a new mount.  Following our simple tips might save you a little bit of money.

  1. The most common problem we find is a dirty windshield.  This is probably the number one tip.  Clean your windshield thoroughly with Windex or any good cleaner that contains alcohol (no not beer, that is not a cleaner).  While you’re at it, also clean the bottom of the suction cup.
  2. Apply a little water to the bottom of the suction cup.  We find, on some mounts that helps the adhesion enormously.
  3. Make sure you are pressing the suction lever in the right direction.  Usually the direction is down, but we see a few deviants that require it to be pushed up.  Most suction mounts have a vacuum base and it is operating by a lever.

That’s it.

If you have tried all of this and it’s still not working, we’re here for you.
