What’s the universal action camera adapter used for?
Paired with a compatible RAM® arm and mounting base, you can easily mount your action camera for a variety of uses: bicycling, boating, driving, fishing, flying, kayaking, mounting biking, offroading, paddleboarding, snowmobiling, and almost anything else you can think of.
What does it do?
This adapter attaches to the underside of almost any action camera – GoPro included. The rubber ball design of the RAM® Mounts system dampens shock and vibration to help extend the life of your device while also providing a stable shot. In addition, this system provides near-infinite adjustability. With just the twist of a knob, you can position your action camera exactly where you need it to achieve your ideal angle.

Or if you need to mount your action camera to a windshield, trust the popular RAM® Twist-Lock™ Suction Cup. For kayak fishing, attach your action camera to the RAM® Tough-Pole™ extension or even the RAM ROD® HD fishing rod holder.

While this adapter works with most action cameras on the market, ensure that your device has a compatible two-prong attachment.
