The RigWheels RigMount is a magnetic camera car mount that uses rare earth magnets to achieve its surprisingly high holding power. (up to 35lbs in a vertical pull) This version has a shorter mounting bolt on top sized specifically for use with cameras and small ball heads. It has a specially formulated rubber coating to both protect the surface you mount to and also to prevent slippage.
The great thing about mounting a camera with a RigMount magnetic camera car mount is that once it is safely attached to a steel surface it will never loose it's holding power. This gives you peace of mind and better results as well. Many other mounting devices can sag or detach. When you mount with a RigMount camera car mount you can be confident that your frame will stay exactly where you want it.
Suction mounts are prone to vibration because of the rubber components. Because this magnet camera car mount uses rubber material than suction mounts your shots will be more stable with less vibration. The rubber coating on the RigMount magnet mounts is just enough to protect the surface you are mounting to from being scratched while not depleting the strength of the magnet.
Since the RigMount has a flat base it can also be used to place and position your camera as an ordinary mini-tripod. For point-and-shoot cameras the RigMount makes a great travel tripod because of it's versatility and all of the different ways in which you can place it. One of the difficulties with most miniature tripods is that it can often be difficult to find a platform to put it on in order to get the camera to the correct height. The RigMount handles this frustration nicely with its ability to attach to steel surfaces ( street signs, cars, mail boxes, railings, etc....).
