The "Quick-Mount" for the Mini-Paddle...

...is designed to give you the possibility to use your Mini-Paddle in different setups and different radios. The idea is to have a Quick-Mount on each rig and just switch the Mini-Paddle. The magnetic version mounts the Mini-Paddle to any ferrous surface, while the standard version can be glued or screwed to other surfaces. The Quick-Mount is available in either gray or black.

Features of the "Quick-Mount"
