Vehicle Lido Mount
Vent mount with AMPS plate/EXP mic holder
Use the 4-hole pattern AMPS plate to attach your remote display head bracket. Or, use it as a button style microphone holder.
If you want to use it to hold an HT, cel phone, GPS unit, etc…bundle the LM-100 with an optional holder:
1) The vent mounts should be considered as semi-permanent because removing and re-inserting the vent clips onto the vent louvers can be difficult.
2) Not for use with round or vertical vents.
Vent mount with side-grip holder included
Place your HT, remote display head, Cel phone, GPS unit etc…in the holder, and squeeze the arms together. The device is securely held in place until you press the side release button. The support legs are removable in case you want to use it horizontally.

Bean bag and suction cup mount, combination package of the LM-25 and LM-500H
The LM-2500 comes with multiple mounting options.
Use the suction cup base to attach it to the included bean bag or windshield, or use the included adhesive disk. The disk glues to your dash, console, etc…providing a smooth suction surface to attach the suction cup.
It will hold your devices using the included side grip holder, set it in the cradle and squeeze the side arms to clamp the device in place…or attach your radio’s remote display head bracket using the AMPS plate hole pattern. Convenient, moves from car to car easily.
Use the LM-AD1 adapter if you want to attach a display head that has a threaded screw hole in the back (FTM-350/IC-706 etc…) The LM-AD1 threads into the back of the diplay head and then slips onto suction cup mount.

Use the hole pattern in the included AMPS plate and attach your remote display head bracket to the AMPS plate. Without the remote bracket, you can order a side grip mount that adjusts and clamps around the remote display head and holds it in place.
Optional side grip holders:
LM-H: Standard size side grip holder for remote heads, HT’s, cell phones, smart phones, GPS devices, etc….
LM-208H: Slim side grip holder for smaller devices, like the IC-208 remote head (max 4.75″ length)
LM-AD1: Optional adapter to hold display heads with a threaded socket like the FTM-350 and IC-706
Suction cup mount with 7″ gooseneck
The gooseneck allows positioning of your device in the most convenient reach and best viewing location.
Attach the LM-400EXP to your windshield allowing the device to rest on the dashboard for most stability. Use the included AMPS plate to attach your remote display head bracket, or use the EXP mount as a microphone button holder.
Or, bundle the LM-400EXP with either of these optional holders:
LM-H: Side grip holder
LM-H208: Narrow side grip holder
Low vibration suction cup mount with multiple mounting options
Attach the suction cup to your windshield, or use the included adhesive disk to attach it to the dash or console.
It comes with a spring-loaded side grip holder. Just insert your device into the holder and squeeze the side arms. The side arms lock in place to hold your device securely. Push the side button to release the arms
Included is a combination AMPS/EXP mount: Use it to hold a remote head, HT or button type microphone. Attach your remote remote display head bracket to the AMPS plate by using the 4 holes, or slip an HT belt clip over it or use it to hold a mic button.
The LM-500H is one of the most popular device holders because it can be used in many different ways, to hold a variety of different devices: HTs, remote heads, cel phones, GPS units, etc…
Low vibration suction cup mount with narrow side grip holder (LM-H208) for smaller devices included.
Several small remote display heads (IC-208 for example) need this side grip holder to hold them securely.
Attach the suction cup to your windshield, or use the included adhesive disk to attach the LM-502H to the dash or console. Open the spring-loaded arms, set the device inside, release the arms. The arms open to a maximum of 4.75″, rotates for vertical or horizontal position.
Included is a combination AMPS/EXP mount. Use it to attach your remote display head bracket, or use it as a button type microphone holder.
Insert the LM-801EXP into any cup holder, turn the expansion nut, and the base expands to fit snugly in the cup holder.
The LM-801EXP is probably the most convenient of all the device holders. Unlike similar products that are unstable in the cup holder socket, this holder fits TIGHTLY! It comes with a combination AMPS plate (flat surface with typically a 4 hole pattern) so you can attach your existing remote display head bracket, and with an EXP mount that will act as either a belt clip or mic button holder.
If you don’t have the remote head bracket, add one of the side grip holders:LM-H: For larger remote heads, HT’s, GPS units, Cel phones, etc…
LM-H208: For smaller remote heads (4.75″ max length), HT’s, Cel phones, etc…
If you want to attach your display head to the LM-801EXP using the threaded hole in the back of most current display heads, add the LM-AD1 adapter.
The LM-AD1 screws into the back of the display head, the T-socket on the LM-AD1 slips onto the T-post on the LM-801EXP, LM-300 or the LM-500H.
The LM-AD1 is a special adapter using the threaded socket in the display head to solve the mounting problem that many of the newer display heads create, in particular the FTM-350R.
Due to the weight and options available to use with the FTM-350 for example, the suction cup mount that came with the radio is very inadequate!

KV4VOV: “The suction cup mount is simply horrible“
and on, and on, and on!!
