The RAM Mount X-Grip is a flexible unit holder since it expands and contracts to perfectly fit your device given that its dimensions are compatible with the holder. The RAM X-Grip is suitable for phones and tablets that are 7” to 12” in size while keeping your device secured with any mounting base.

RAM X-Grip Tether

You can further secure the hold on your device with a RAM X-Grip Tether. The tether is used to prevent movement of your device and to give it stability and vibration control. A question frequently asked is, “When should I use a tether?”

The tether is ideal for outdoor or out-of-cockpit applications (e.g. driving at high speed on your vehicle, biking on a bumpy trail, driving on a bumpy road etc.) for further device security.

However, if you’re driving at a normal freeway, the tether is not needed anymore. Though if you would have to switch from the normal freeway to an off-road trail, it’s recommended to use a tether.
