Of the many mounts that GoPro makes, one of
the more popular is the suction cup mount. It’s a very unique mount in that it gives
you the flexibility to put the camera when mounted on the suction cup is the many different
positions and angles. It also comes with a pump on top, allows you to push pressure down
and push the air out. And then it comes with a cam lever and this holds the suction cup
onto metal, glass, aluminum, many other non-porous surfaces extremely well.
How secure is this particular mount? Well the best example that I can give you
is that Kirby Chambliss who is the pilot for the Red Bull stunt planes has personally told
me that he can pull four G’s with his stunt plane and the wing of his plane is where he
mounts the suction cup, there’s nothing else holding it on, just the suction cup onto his
wing at 4 G’s. So I don’t believe many people could put there suction cup into many more
forces than that. So it holds really well. If there’s one caveat to it, it doesn’t like
boards such as surfboards and stand-up paddle boards. They’re a little too porous so let’s
keep it off of them.
