nclamp: Waterproof Aqua Box® Clamping Mount
With our nclamp Aqua Box® mount, you can clamp a rugged waterproof box containing your valuable electronic devices, papers and objects to your bike, car window, kayak, boat, wheelchair or walker — virtually any surface imaginable.
What's more, the Aqua Box has a clear, rubber front panel, through which you can see and press buttons on your phone, GPS or other mobile device while ensuring that the unit remains isolated from wind, rain, ocean waves — even a sandstorm.
The combination of a PONY spring clamp and a RAM Mounts ball-and-socket system gives your Aqua Box its unparalleled versatility and strength. The nclamp can hold up to 3 lbs. (1.4 kg) of weight, easily managing larger devices and objects placed inside the Aqua Box. We carry four sizes of Aqua Box, small, medium, large and wide which you can order with your nclamp. You can also purchase Aqua Boxes separately if you want to swap different sizes into the same nclamp.
The Aqua Box is quite amazing. Here's why...
The rugged Aqua Box, manufactured by RAM Mounting Systems, is constructed with a clear, rubber lens mounted on its face. A hinged door, framing the lens, enables you to place your electronic device or valued object inside while allowing easy access if required. A hinged clasp on the side of the Aqua Box snaps closed to keep the door tightly shut and sealed. The clear lens allows you to view an electronic display, as well as to press function keys while in place. Inside the RAM Aqua Box are layers of removable EVA foam cushioning, which enable you to secure your electronic device even if they are slim or oddly shaped. If required, you can lock the box with a small padlock, once closed.
A note regarding operation of iPhone and iPod Touch screens...
The flexible lens on an Aquabox will allow you to depress the click wheel and all contact-based buttons on an Apple iPod, but it does not carry the electrostatic charge required to operate an iPhone or iPod Touch screen, or the sensitivity required to dial an iPod click wheel. An iPhone ringtone is audible through an Aqua Box.
Portable, flexible and durable.
The nclamp's ball-and-socket head, manufactured by RAM Mounting Systems, includes an anodized aluminum ball and a composite coupler.
When you purchase an nclamp Aqua Box® mount you choose from one of four sizes of RAM Mounts boxes with interior dimensions adequate for your objects and electronics. The nclamp includes a second composite ball and base (as shown at left) which is bolted to the Aqua Box.
The nclamp's coupler, in which the two balls are snugly socketed, has a large handle which can be loosened for positioning your Aqua Box, and tightened with a single hand. The entire assembly is tough as nails, and won't fall flaccid under the weight of a heavier payload.
The nclamp's PONY spring clamp is constructed of a nickel-plated steel. Its jaws are capable of opening up to 2" (5.1 cm) wide and tightly clamping down to any surface. The PONY's trademark orange tips protect and grip the surfaces that it is clamped on to, and the orange handles make the clamp easier to squeeze open with a single hand. Competitive products offer off-market clamps made of imported steel — cheaply constructed imitations of the classic PONY clamp used in our nclamp products.
Important! The steel PONY clamp needs a bit of care if exposed to water.
The PONY clamp and its high-strength spring are made of steel, which will rust if exposed to water or a damp environment. If you use your nclamp at sea or on a beach, it should be rinsed with freshwater and dried after use. If you use your nclamp in the rain or drop it in a lake, it should be dried after use. You can towel dry, but we'd recommend a quick blow of heat from a hair dryer to remove moisture from the spring.
Your nclamp arrives fully assembled, with free premium-grade accessories.
With each nclamp product, we add a marine-grade nylon-coated bungee tether and a 2" plated-steel breech clip (shown here) giving you the option to secure your nclamp to any fixed eyelet in the event that the unit is bumped or jarred. This flexible tether is provided to minimize any risk of damage to your valuable devices.
