I was looking for a solution to permanently wire my radar detector in the car. Also I needed to take it off when I parked to avoid theft.
The only solution I found was the Blendmount. But at $89.99 it seemed absurdly expensive. Then I came across this Ultimount. Lets just say for the price of one Blendmount I could get 3 Ultimounts.
I have not come across a Blendmount so I do not know about its construction & quality.
The Ultimount is well built from "aircraft grade material" (whatever that means). Latches on to the rear of your rear view mirror. They say it is a universal fit. Separate models are available for the Escorts & Valentines. It comes with an extra set of longer screws if the ones attached do not fit your rear view mirror. As seen in the picture it allows you to raise & lower the detector & rotate it also. So if you adjust the rear view mirror,all you have to do is turn the detector individually in the appropriate direction.
I have a Valentine & the Ultimount came with an extra windshield mount release bar that costs $10 on the Valentine website.
