Product Description

Product Description

Even the best windshield suction cups don’t last forever, but at this affordable price, stock up on a few, or put a mount in each car to make transferring your radar detector a breeze.

From the Manufacturer

This suction cup mount from Escort firmly holds a radar and laser detector in place, letting the driver confidently detect signals from X, K, and Ka bands while on the road. The mount fits the current Escort Passport 8500 X50, Solo S2, and Passport 7500S models, as well as earlier Passport 8500, 7500, 6800, 5000, 4600, 4500, and 4200 units and RD-5110, Solo 5, and Solo 4 detectors.

The less you stick and unstick these suction cups the longer they hold as well.

The suction cups are the same cheap cups that come with the unit. If you need new cups go to a hobby store and buy some designed to hang small artwork off windows.

The description does not mention that this also works with the 9500i and 9500ix Escort detectors. When I read this I noticed this model wasn't mentioned so I was a little concerned this model was omitted from the list on purpose. At this cheap price though I figured it was worth taking a chance, turns out it is the identical mount that comes with your 9500i detector.

There are better mounting options available, the Escort visor mount works with the 9500i as well, makes for a solid mount, just difficult to access the buttons and some people may experience GPS connectivity problems if mounted directly at the roof of your vehicle (though I haven't had any problems). There's another company that makes a mount that attach's directly to your rear view mirror that works very well, it's just a little pricey for what you actually get.

I have been annoyed by after a period of time the suction cups popping loose and your $500 detector goes crashing into the dash and onto the floor while you're driving down the road. This is never a good feeling when it happens. When this does happen to me I don't even boil mine in water. I just leave them in a cup of hot tap water over night. By morning the clear cups look white, but when they dry out they turn clear again and work like brand new for another few months. Making sure your windshield is clean before sticking them on helps significantly as well.

I bought the additional mounts listed here because I use my detector in multiple vehicles. It's always a pain resticking and rebending a single mount to get it to work in different vehicles, for this cheap price I can now have a mount in each of my vehicles. The less you stick and unstick these suction cups the longer they hold as well.

This is the same cheap, low suction, bouncy (due to the metal bracket flexing) mount that came new with your Escort detector. The new cups will work marginally better than your old, worn out cups but you will soon come back to your car and find your detector on the floor or dangling from the power cable. Some folks recommend putting your old cups in boiling water for a bit to freshen them up for better grip, but I have not tried it.

The Valentine V1 mount is head and shoulders better than this offering from Escort (as is the V1 detector) but the 8500 X50 works pretty good and can be found a lot cheaper - but the Escort mount is just terrible.

Note that if you buy a replacement suction cup mount direct from Escort or at many other online stores you get the bracket and FOUR new suction cups - so you have spares when the first two quit gripping. This item from Amazon is just the bracket and TWO cups.

The mount is a design that does not try to support all of the weight of the detector. It relys on the detector being pushed onto the mount far enough to set against the windshield. A little odd at first, but really better as it is very small by comparison to most and stores away very nicely.

Wont last long. The sun just kills the suction cups in no time at all. Go with the escort sticky suction cup mount or use a visor mount and skip this headache. Also just lets your detector bounce up and down with every bump.

I received one of theses with my detector; boy, you'd think that a $300 gizmo ought to have a more secure mount. It's about what you'd expect from 2 suction cups in a bouncing vehicle-- not much.
