How to Choose The Best Mounting Bracket For You

If you’re a fan of off-roading, you know it’s important to have a high-quality mounting system for your two-way radio. A mounting bracket helps keep your radio stable and within reach and protects the radio at the same time.

As an adventurer, you know that careful preparation is a preventative measure against unforeseen calamities. Using a mount in your vehicle to keep your two-way radio steady is an essential. Doing so helps you maintain communication with others and keep tabs on weather updates and road conditions.

What is a Mounting Bracket?

A bracket mounts your two-way radio to various locales in your automobile so that it is always at a comfortable distance from the front seats. Some are made for specific vehicles, like the Jeep® Wrangler Bracket Mount, and others have a universal fit.

Make sure the bracket you’re looking at is a fit for the two-way radio you’re using. The bracket won’t do much good if the radio doesn’t fit securely, as its primary aim is to keep the radio in a concrete position.

You only need one or two tools to quickly mount your bracket: an electric drill or screwdriver.
