Arkon CMP214 Mini Camera Suction Mount

The Satechi SCH-22 is a suction cup mount for motorcycles and it a small unit, at about 67.5 mm. This mount has a rotating collar at the bottom that a person pulls the suction cup’s vacuum with. There is also a sticky surface for people who want to attach it to the motorcycle helmet instead. This is 150 mm tall and has serrated joints to align the camera to the right angle. The top is a screw-on only mount, which means the camera does not stay as steady as other models.
