Uniden UH076/78 Lockable Radio Mount

At the request of a fellow inmate I designed and made a mount for his Uniden radio. To be a viable project I made extra.

I have received more than enough interest from other inmates that the extras have been sold and I will now be manufacturing more units in my spare time.




- The rear mounting holes are M5 in a standard 'AMPS' configuration(As used by RAM and Techmounts)
There are 2 Ram Mounts that have the same AMPS hole pattern:
RAM-B-347U - http://www.ram-mount.com/CatalogResu...5/Default.aspx
RAM-B-202 - http://www.rammount.com/CatalogResul...0/Default.aspx


- The unit is made from black Acetyl plastic and stainless steel, so no corrosion or earthing problems

- The pin on the back of the radio slides into the slot and is held in place with a spring loaded hook. Once mounted, it can be locked into place with a 2mm allen key or a T8 torx driver. So no need to remove the radio, for fear of theft, when you stop at your favourite watering hole/coffee shop. Also no chance of it vibrating loose even on the roughest corrugated dirt roads


- Here is a album of some mounting examples - http://s932.photobucket.com/albums/a...uaticDawg/UHF/
password - uniden

- A BMW F650GS with custom dash mount - http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....&postcount=102

- Other compatible radios that will fit are:
Uniden UH073sx, UH075, UH076sx & UH078sx
Uniden VHF marine handhelds Atlantis 250, Atlantis 260 & Voyager

- The mount is compact enough and allows for the use of the 12V clip on charger




The mounts go for $98.00 each
Plus $12 postage.(Up to 8 in a bag. If they are all going to the same place I will only charge once for postage)

Total for 1 = $110.00
Total for 2 = $208.00
Total for 3 = $306.00, etc.

Or pick up Buddina, Sunshine Coast to save on postage.

Kindly send a PM, email or call should you require a mount. craigkrantz@gmail.com - 04 three 4 three 75 325

Feel free to discuss the mount here. All feedback, good and bad, will be appreciated

Please take note: Uniden have recently changed the design of the location pin on the radio.
Have a look at the photo below. The left pin is the old style and the right is the new style. You can see the chamfer that has been added(tip of the pen)
The new style has interference when sliding into the mount. The chamfers are varying sizes so some fit tightly and others don’t go in at all.
If you have the new style pin I will send you an old style pin that you can swop out on you radio. Please just let me know when you place your order.

It works on other models too


Discontinued models that will also work on the mount are Uniden UH073sx, UH075, UH076sx & UH078sx.
The Uniden VHF marine handhelds Atlantis 250, Atlantis 260 & Voyager also use the same set up.

Is this the ram mount to suit?

http://www.ram-mount.com/CatalogResu...5/Default.aspx

Might be worth a group buy to keep shipping cost per unit to a reasonable level as part cost is only about AU$6

It's perfect!!!

I've been looking for the perfect ram mount and found this
http://www.ram-mount.com/CatalogResu...0/Default.aspx

M5 x 16 stainless capscrews will work perfectly with that ram mount.
M5 x 20 would be just too long, but could work with a little bit of shortening

My wife just found the zippy bag with the radio mount in the centre console.

Maybe not such a good idea to write the price on it.

Just saying...

Great mount Craig. Only thing to watch is the little screw. It vibrated loose and noticed it just before I lost it. A bit of loctite should fix that.
Very happy customer.

Thanks W

You are the second person to have this happen, though a low percentage it is a problem I will endevour to solve. There seems to be inconsistancy with the screws WRT sizing. Frustrating!

The spring is strong enough that your radio should not fall out under normal circumstances. The screw is a locking mechanism mainly to prevent theft when you pop into a pub or go pay the fuel bill.

Be careful with loctite, as you might lock it up permanently.

Thank you for the feed back

I'm hoping to get some feedback from the APC riders.
It would be nice to know how it held up in some extreme riding conditions.[/QUOTE]

Bought 2 for myself and a mate to mount our radios for the APC rally. I'm happy to give this product a 5 Star rating. I had an off and the radio spun in the cradle but stayed on. My mate had a big off and radio and brackets stayed in place. Same cant be said for his handlebar

That looks expensive!

Thanks for crash testing the mount Moptop.
Any damage to the mount when the radio did a 360?

No. That is why I think the mount is great. The impact allowed the radio to spin in the mount without any damage to the mount or the radio. Big thumps up from me. After the off I just turned the radio, till it clicked back I'm place with the side knobs. I did not end up using loctite on the screw as per you recommendation, I just tighten it a bit more after my initial ride when it vibrated loose, and had no problems at all. I abviously did not have the screw tight enough the first time.

I am currently at Cape York and rode tele track with a couple of offs and the radio mount has performed without a problem, a great piece of kit
