An extended version of the Double-Ended Cockpit Mount, this clamp reaches places that no Double-Ended Cockpit Mount has ever reached before, while sharing all of the same qualities that we know and love. This clamp measures 5" from the center of one clamped tube to the center of the other clamped tube.
An essential building block in the Cockpit Mount family is the Double-Ended Cockpit Mount Clamp. The same sided bolt setup means that installation is a breeze, because you don't have to remove other things from your tube. The high surface area of the Double-Ended Cockpit Mount Clamp's grip securely clamps into place, holding any accessories or mounts wherever you want them to be.
1. What an odd shaped clamp. How does it work?
This clamp is designed to be a low clearance, medium duty clamp that's easy to install. The sides just pop apart and you put the clamp where you want. Usually, all you have to do is temporarily remove the bolts to wrap the clamp around a tube.
2. What can I hold with it?
Any round, straight tube that is the right diameter. We an ever-growing library of clamp sizes. It's important the tube is straight for the 1/2 inch (12.7mm) where the clamp is attached. The tube can curve around in other places, but where the clamp is attached needs to be straight.
3. How strong it it?
Pretty strong, we call it medium strength. It's designed for versatility and ease of installation more than maximum strength. It's designed to hold accessories (under 5 lbs, 2kg or so). It definitely not designed for attaching critical things like steering components, heavy accessories, or exit assist handles. What it can handle strongly depends on the amount of leverage you put on it of course, so the overall design matters a lot. It is possible to boost the strength considerably by using a pair of clamps spaced apart from one another, we do that on some of the SeatSide Mounts.
4. Can I use it on things that aren't the "proper" size?
Unfortunately, no. For the clamp to grip well, it needs to be gripping something that is round, straight, and the rated size. Fortunately, that is usually possible.
