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.
- 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.
- Apply a little water to the bottom of the suction cup. We find, on some mounts that helps the adhesion enormously.
- 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.
If you have tried all of this and it’s still not working, we’re here for you.
