Hard to fit H2O into Ram Mount holder

11 posts in this topic

I bought a Ram Mount for my iFinder H2O, but it seems super hard to get the unit to fit into the mount. It seems like I'm going to wreck the rubber gasket that goes around the unit when I'm trying to put it into the mount, as if the mount is too small for the unit. Is there a trick to this? Thanks.

It should look like this, right?

Insert the H2O into the bottom of the mount first.

Then spread the top of the mount apart and slide the top of the H2O into place.

Mine works exactly as airjer describes. Never had a problem with mine. Maybe you have a different RAM mount?

Mine looks different than that. Instead of being able to spread the top apart, it has a piece that's supposed to fit over the very top. Maybe I bought the wrong mount? I'll post a pic tonight.

I would like to see what you have. Sounds like you did get the wrong one.

you bought the ram mount for the i-finders that first came out..if you have the package it should say i-finder h2o or hunt on it if it only says i-finder its the old style..the h20 and hunt are just alittle bit bigger then the old i-finder black and green models..

That's the one AirJer! Maybe if I use my chop saw to take off the top 1/2 inch of the Unit it will fit better!! smirk

I ran across the same thing for the carrying case the guy behind the counter told me that it would work but he was wrong it took me all summer to find the case.

Sounds like an hsolist listing will be coming shortly! The correct style works great.

    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
