Mount of the Month Q&A: Torque Rail Base
Who’s it for?
Anyone who has an off-road vehicle, ATV or UTV.
What does it do?
Each Torque rail base is made of durable marine-grade aluminum materials and fits large rails and bars ranging from 1.5″ to 2″ in diameter, creating a mounting base for spotlights, phones, tablets, action cameras and more.
How’s it work?
Two sets of sizing inserts are included to create a tight hold while also protecting the rail surface, and nylon-insert locknuts prevent loosening in high-vibration environments. The included 1″ (B Size) or 1.5″ (C Size) ball creates a mounting base compatible with a wide variety of RAM products. If you want to attach two devices, you can even connect an additional 1″ ball to the opposite side.
What else should I know?
If you’re using the Torque rail base to mount an action camera, the kit with the Hex ball will offer the best stability to keep your videos looking sharp. All other devices are supported by the Pin-Lock™ ball.
