Seeing the attractive price on this product, I had hoped for something usable and effectively built, which are attributes far greater than this mount offers.
The 1/4"-20 threads are pinched on two sides, resulting in a smushed threading (see attached picture). Naturally, this defeats the functionality of the threads. One of my mounts was able to screw onto the threads, but left behind small metal shards. Fortunately, the shards were from the cheap metal of the suction mount.
The ball head of this product also leaves much to be desired. The ball is rough and has a thick seam at the bottom, making the mount incapable of smooth rotation in certain positions.
The only redeeming feature of the suction mount is the actual suction cup and latch itself, which held well in the brief testing I did.
I'd avoid this mount and look for a better-constructed option. The product will be returned to the manufacturer.
