Suction cups secure video camera to hood or side of vehicle


Thanko has released a camera mount that you can use to secure a video camera with 2 powerful suction cups on the hood, side or top of a vehicle. It allows you to make a unique video while you drive. It is designed to withstand a load of 130kg (150kg on a horizontal place) so you don’t need to worry about your valuable camera dropping off of your car.

You can use it anywhere suction cups can attach.

Price: 24,800 yen (including tax) Size: 350 x 130 x 195mm Weight: 1.8kg

Would it hold up if you had to suddenly brake hard at high speed?

I guess the forces involved in breaking sharply are much more than 130kg....

Who will guarantee it won't fall off? Must be the suction cups are like those human fly types we see in movies.

Grams are units of mass, not force.

Driving with one of these attached to your vehicle is technically illegal as the protruding camera could cause additional injury to a pedestrian in a collision.

Since when is this new. It's been around for years.

Used a few rigs like this. @SimondB: Yep they certainly will. You can have two or three grown men yanking on them and the first thing to come off will be the hood of the car.
