RAM Offers Versatility and Universal Fit with X-Grip Cradles

RAM first introduced their X-Grip line several years ago with their uniquely designed X-Grip cradle for cell phones.  Since then, three additional sizes have been announced.  I would like to say there couldn’t possibly be room for any additions to the X-Grip line, but I’m betting we’ll be updating this post a few more times.

RAM currently offers the following X-Grip sizes.  All come with a pre-molded 1″ ball attached tot he back except the largest X-Grip III which uses the RAM-B-202U ball.

RAM-HOL-UN7BU (X-Grip) – Cell Phones

(Devices at 0.875″ must be a minimum of 4″ in height to fit into holder)
Maximum Width = 3.25″
Depth = 0.875″

RAM-HOL-UN8BU (X-Grip II) -Small to Medium Tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7, Apple iPad Mini.  These also fit larger 7″ GPS units.

Minimum Width = 2.25″

RAM’s New X-Grip Universal Cradle Line

RAM is known for manufacturing some of the most innovative mounts.  They recently announced a series of universal cradles called X-Grip.  After playing with these for a bit, we see why they are so excited about these.  Most universal cradles are spring loaded and open / close with a button on the side.  The cradles have supports at the side and bottom.  Works for most devices, but sometimes blocks ports.

The X-Grip is different.  The cradles deploy a 4-leg design that will grasp your device at the sides quite firmly.  In fact, it is firm enough so that you do not need lower supports.  This permits free access to power and buttons at the top and bottom of your device.

Currently, the X-Grip supports smartphones up to a maximum width of 3.25″ and that is wide enough for just about all phones with or without a case or skin.  In December, a larger version of the X-Grip will be available for 7″ tablets like the Amazon Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Tab and Blackberry Playbook.

The X-Grip cradles come in two flavors, with or without a RAM 1″ ball attached.  Use the RAM-HOL-UN7U for attaching to RAM’s Snap-Link mounting line.  Use the RAM-HOL-UN7BU for attaching to any of the RAM-B 1″ ball mounts such as the RAM-B-149Z-QU1U.

The X-Grip is also available as part of a complete mounting solution and we’ll add a few pictures below to depict that.
