Here are a few more new Lido Mount products you’ll find in the upcoming DX Engineering catalog:

Bracket for Yaesu Mobile Radios

Made from lightweight, strong aluminum, the LM-EXT-10 bracket is designed to adapt a required Pro-Clip mount or vehicle-specific mount (not included) for direct 5mm swivel stud attachment to Yaesu FTM-100, FTM-300, FTM-350, FTM-400 or FT-891 control heads. This mount can be attached to any Pro-Clip or other VSM mount with a 4-hole AMPS pattern and includes a double-T quick-release mounting system with the swivel. A mounting plate for the microphone is also included. The LMEXT01DELUX Extension Bracket allows you to mount two devices to one vehicle mount. Measuring 4 3/4″ x 2 1/4″, the bracket also lets you adjust device location for extra horizontal or vertical clearance.

Vent Mount for ID-5100 and IC-2730 Series

When you just can’t find the right place in your ride to mount your radio or remote-control head, Lido’s Vent Mount may be the perfect solution, putting your mobile rig within easy reach. The LM101EXT-2-6 Vent Mount works directly with the control heads of Icom ID-5100 and IC-2730 series transceivers. It comes with a support brace and vice-type clamp that can be attached to horizontal or vertical louvres. The unit’s face plate comes with two 2.6mm screws that can be attached directly to the Icom remote head without need for the Icom MBA-2 or MBA-5 brackets.

No Holes Mic Hang-Up

For those who don’t want to drill into the dashboard, this adhesive-backed microphone hook for Kenwood and Motorola microphones is an excellent option. The mount comes with a strong 3M adhesive pad that won’t come off until you want it to—without leaving any sticky residue. It will accommodate the larger “button” hang-ups on these models, as well as CB radios. Mount is 2.38″ H x 1.63″ W.
