Avoid the mistake that 20% of all customers make.  They fail to purchase a mount and then order a mount at a later time, thus paying more for the mount and twice for shipping.  Please consider your mounting strategy before purchasing.

The UltraGauge EM Plus and MX are offered with several mounting options each of which is described below.  Each mount may also be purchased separately.

UltraGauge Blue:  The UltraGauge Blue Adapter requires no mount.  However, an optional UltraGauge Blue Smart Phone Windshield Mount is available for mounting a smart phone in your vehicle.

Bracket

UltraGauge mounting bracketUltraGauge Bracket

The bracket is provided at no charge and is included with each UltraGauge EM Plus or MX purchased.  It is primarily designed as an adapter that allows UltraGauge to be attached to the mounts below.   The bracket slides on to the "T" slot of the head of the mount and then the bracket "snaps" on to the body of UltraGauge.   The Bracket can also be used for custom mounts or with the Velcro mount.   For example, the bracket can be attached with adhesive, Velcro or a hard fastener, such as a screw, to a surface.   UltraGauge is then "snapped" into the bracket.   Examples of customs mounts can be found on the UltraGauge Forum

The Mounting Bracket may optionally purchased separately

Warning: The UltraGauge Bracket is not designed to fully slide on the the "T" slot of the mount. Only slide the bracket on to the "T" enough to hold it securely in place. Attempting to fully insert the Bracket onto the "T" slot will result in damage to the bracket.


 

Hook & Loop(Industrial)

Hook and Loop Hook & Loop applied

The hook and loop fastener, commonly known as Velcro™, is comprised of two halves, each is 1"x1.5".   One half is attached to the back of UltraGauge, as shown above. The 2nd half is attached to a surface inside the vehicle, such as the dash.   The fastener may be used as-is or trimmed in size or cut in to several pieces.   Each half has an adhesive that can be applied to any clean, solid surface.   The fastener is an industrial strength Hook & Loop which can withstand temperatures as high as 225F (107C) without lifting or shearing from the attached surface.

Vertical Surface Mount

UltraGauge Vertical Mount Right
UltraGauge Vertical Mount Installed Vertical Mount with bracket

The vertical mount is designed to adhere to vertical surfaces on the dash face.  The mounting head features 360 degree rotation and can be swiveled up/down and left & right, thanks to the ball and socket design.  The mounting bracket, included with UltraGauge, fits into the "T" notch located on the face of the swivel assembly.  The base is flexible allowing it to take the shape of curved surfaces, as shown above.  The base can also be trimmed in size with a scissors to aid in custom installations.  The mount features a very high quality 3M™ adhesive

Unlike the Windshield mount, the vertical surface mount has the potential to mount UltraGauge so that it can not easily be seen from outside the vehicle.

Base dimensions 2.0" x 2.8"
Base to Mount face 1.44"
Head rotation 360°
Head swivel +-25°
Warranty 6 months**

Installation Instructions:

Once removed from its protective bag, the vertical mount can not be returned for a refund.  Because the adhesive performance is customer installation dependent, the adhesive has no warranty.

The adhesive can only be used once. If the above instructions were not followed and the adhesive has failed, the adhesive is end of life. The adhesive is a high quality 3M™ adhesive and the only known reason for failure, is failure to follow the above instructions. Some have reported that after they failed to follow the above instructions they had some luck following the "Failed Installation" instructions associated with the windshield mount.

If the mount has been removed and it is desired to reuse the mount, the now consumed adhesive can be supplemented with Plumbers Goop. Apply 4 small 3/8" round dabs of Plumbers Goop to the four corners of the mount and then apply to the surface. Plumbers Goop will become brittle if exposed to sun light. Make sure the Goop does not squeeze out the sides of the mount. A little plumbers goop has a lot of holding force. Only a small dab is necessary.

** The mount has a 6 month warranty excluding the adhesive.  Many customers install the mount without reading the installation instructions and in so doing impair the adhesives performance.  Also, the adhesive should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures, such as is common when a vehicle is parked in the sun with the windows up and no form of shading. The adhesive will eventually fail under such conditions.


 

Horizontal Surface Mount

UltraGauge Vertical Mount Left Vertical Mount Center rotation


The Horizontal Surface Mount is identical to the Vertical Surface mount above, except that the head has been rotated 70 degrees.   This mount is ideal for mounting Ultragauge on a horizontal surface, such as a steering column, console or dash*.

Base dimensions 2.0" x 2.8"
Base to highest point on head, when rotated to 70 degrees 2.12"
Head rotation 360°
Head swivel +-25°
Warranty 6 months**

NOTE: The UltraGauge Bracket is not designed to fully slide on the the "T" slot of the mount. Only slide the bracket on to the "T" enough to hold it securely in place. Attempting to fully insert the Bracket onto the "T" slot will result in damage to the bracket.

Once removed from its protective bag, the horizontal mount can not be returned for a refund.  Because the adhesive performance is customer installation dependent, the adhesive has no warranty.

Please see the vertical surface mount above for installation details

The Horizontal Surface Mount may be optionally purchased separately

* While the Horizontal mount can be used on the dash, this is discouraged since Dash temperatures can exceed the maximum temperature of UltraGauge and damage the display. This can be resolved with the use of a Windshield Sun Shade. With the use of a Sun Shade the Horizontal mount provides an excellent dash mount solution. Be sure to follow the installation instructions above.

Windshield Mount

UltraGauge Windshield mount

The Windshield mount attaches directly to the inside surface of the windshield.  The long neck of the windshield mount is flexible and can be formed to fit most applications(see the picture above and to the right).  The windshield mount head, which attaches to the UltraGauge bracket, is a ball design which allows for fine position adjustment. The ball can be locked in place with the included locking ring.

Overall Length 8.3" (21mm)
Suction Cub diameter 2.75" (7cm)
Head rotation 360°
Head swivel +-40°
Material Polycarbonate
Neck Flexible
Warranty 6 months*

Installation Instructions:

It is generally best to only lightly tighten the locking ring, so as to allow the ball swivel to still operate and hold its position.  Attempting to position UltraGauge while the locking ring is tight, can result in damage to the mounting bracket.

* A suction based mount like the windshield mount is not a "forever" mount.  It is necessary to inspect the condition of the mount every so often and increasingly with age.  It is recommended to re-install the mount, as per the "Failed Installation" instruction below, at the start of winter and the start of summer, as a minimum and more often with age.  Failure to do so, may result in the failure of the mount, and potential damage to UltraGauge.

Failed Installation
If the mount was installed without following the instructions above, the mount will likely have been contaminated by the dirty windshield.  If so, it will be necessary to wash the suction cup in warm water with a little dish soap.  Rinse with hot water.  Shake dry and then air dry until completely dry.   Do not attempt to dry the suction cup with a towel or paper towel.  Both will leave fibrous debris on the cup which will cause the suction cup to fail.  A hair dryer can be used to accelerate the drying.  Once the suction cup is dry, then follow the installation instructions above.

If the mount has been removed from it's protective plastic bag , it can no longer be returned as part of our 30-day satisfaction guarantee.
