The Matthews Indie Mount is an affordable and reliable solution for mounting smaller camera packages to autos, RV's, boats, windows, countertops, and virtually any other smooth, non-porous surface. The Indie Mount allows the user to mount cameras in dozens of places around the exterior and interior of the vehicle, securely and safely. The system uses a combination of MicroGrip technology, Vacuum Cups (also known as Pump or Suction Cups), one articulating camera mount and a new quick strut triangulating system.

Set up a car shot with the Indie Mount in minutes. Simply mount the main 6" Cup with the articulating camera mount, attach your camera, frame your shot, add the support cup and arm, secure your struts, and roll camera.

The varying length Micro Grip rods can be attached via terminating 1/4"-20 threads, providing a dynamic reach of 4-32" for the second support cup. The 3" camera riser is included to give you more reach when trying to position the camera further from the car surface, and can also be used as a right angle adapter that must-have profile shot.

How do the Quick Struts work?

The Quick Struts not only keep your camera from falling if the Vacuum Cups were to somehow detach, they are also used to triangulate and maintain mount self-tension, keeping it rock solid. With the quick struts, you simply attach two hooks and pull the loose end of the line for a secure, tight hold. The quick struts always stay tight, providing the assurance that your camera is hanging securely from a moving vehicle. To loosen the struts, simply pull the line to reduce tension and push the release button.

How do the Vacuum Cups work?

Vacuum Cups employ the force of atmospheric pressure to grip a surface (when a vacuum exists between the cup and the surface on which it is attached, the weight of Earth's atmosphere holds the cup in place with incredible force). These cups attach and release in seconds, meaning they can be relocated quickly on virtually any smooth, non-porous surface. The rubber pad won’t mar or damage most surfaces, and helps eliminate micro-vibrations produced by the vehicle's engine.

A spring-balanced pump ensures a consistent vacuum level, and a red-line indicator warns if there is any drop in holding power. A few strokes on the plunger will remove the air between the mount's vacuum pad and the mounting surface. As long as the mount maintains a reliable hold, the plunger remains partially hidden inside the pump and the red line is not visible. If the red line appears, another stroke or two will restore full holding power. A firm push or pull on the rubber tab at the edge of the pad releases the mount. Each Vacuum Cup is supplied with a pad protector.
