Customer Reviews

The antenna bangs around the base, and it drives me nuts.
Paul
Threw mine in the trash and got a quick disconnect instead.

And I can't find anything else that will do the job better.

I just received my adapter today, I did notice as LeeBee said that the antenna wanted to point slightly upward. You will notice that the problem is the collar on the holder will get caught on the edge of the base when folding down. Pushing down slightly on the antenna will "click" it into the correct 90 degree angle. I did this a few times and noticed the collar chipped away at the edge of the base. Now it will go right to 90 degrees without any issue. I will post pictures of my antenna at 90 degrees in the user photos.

Works well, allows me to drop my antenna so I can clear garages or low overhangs. The spring is still pretty stiff as I don't use it very often. When up the adapter stays solid. The only down side is that it adds almost 3" of height.

It does fold over -- but not the full 90 degrees you expect. If you get one, expect your antenna to still point slightly skyward even when folded. Also, because of the way humans are constructed, it's quite difficult to overcome the spring tension if installed over shoulder height. All that said, it's a fairly well made product that does a fair job. And I can't find anything else that will do the job better.

I have this installed on my jeep along with a 4 foot firestik antenna and a heavy duty spring as well. I had to get this so I could still park in my garage and clear lower hanging things like parking garages. My spring is pretty stiff, so to not risk ripping the antenna mount I went with this fold down adapter. At first it was very easy to pull up and fold it down. Now with a couple months of use it is somewhat harder. Could be that it has mud on the spring inside from the last off roading trip, but I'm not sure. Sometimes it's easy, others I really have to tug on it to get it to fold down. It's very easy to put the antenna back up though! I just give it a good smack and it goes up and locks back in place! Other than the small ease of use issue, this is a pretty nice adapter to have!

Arrived on time. When I finally got it installed (it was part of a project), it was difficult to fold-over. It didn't quite want to pull out far enough to easily enable the fold-over function. Not impressed with the builld, although it was nicely chromed..

I have a pretty long firestick mounted on my roof rack, and need this fold-over to clear my garage. I've had this for the past two years.

Although it does perform the function of folding over, I would not recommend this item as previous owners have also stated - the joint has ~1/4" of play in it, and makes the antenna VERY wobbly and noisy when it is in the vertical position. The antenna bangs around the base, and it drives me nuts. It is so annoying and loud, that I actually take it off and connect the antenna directly when I head out to use it. Otherwise, I only use it to keep my antenna in the same place when I'm in the city (which is 85% of the time), and prevent it from getting AWOL.

Maybe you'll fare better with your unit, but looking at everyone's reviews, it looks like a hit or miss. I wish I never bought it. Goodluck.

It seems well built but once you get it mounted, you'll realize that it is incredibly unstable and just wobbles around with only minor pressure. I can only imagine this would snap at highway speed. I won't risk it.

There are a lot of other options. Keep looking.
