Our super-flexible eReader SnakeClamp is ideal for holding your eReader exactly where you want it. We offer a growing line of attachments to fit many popular eReaders.
The Ram-Mount Universal Backing Plate is a tough, high-strength composite spring loaded plate. Device-specific cup ends (sold separately) attach to the backing plate with 10 screws. The springs in the backing plate pull the cups together and securely hold your eReader. Backing plate attaches to our flexible gooseneck arm and/or rigid arms with our ABS plastic AMPS adapter and sturdy 3/8" stainless steel screw (included with backing plate). This arrangement allows you to rotate your eReader in the portrait or landscape orientation.
Ram-Mount Cup Ends are made of high-strength composite material and are available in sizes to fit many popular eReaders.

We offer 7 different model flexible gooseneck arms in stock and ready to ship:
Our 9", 18" Heavy-Duty, 18" Super-Duty and 24" Heavy-Duty gooseneck arms are very stiff. The exceptions are our 13" and 18" Light-Duty goosenecks which are much more flexible but do not support as much weight. Gooseneck arms are strongest in the vertical position. In this orientation all of our gooseneck arms can support 6 lbs. However with the 18" Light-Duty gooseneck the weight must remain centered over the mount. With the gooseneck arm mounted horizontally, it's weakest orientation, the 9", 18" Heavy-Duty and 24" gooseneck arms can support 2 lbs. without bending; the 18" Super-Duty can support 2-1/2 lbs. and the 13" and 18" Light-Duty goosenecks can each support 1/2 lb.
You can splice two goosenecks together for additional length with our 1" Threaded Stud (SCP-STUD1), sold separately. However a spliced gooseneck will not support as much weight as a single gooseneck.
We recommend the 18" Light-Duty gooseneck for lightweight such as the iPad Mini and Kindle. The 9", 18" Heavy-Duty, 18" Super-Duty and 24" Heavy-Duty gooseneck arms are suitable for heavier devices such as iPads.
Or you can combine our 12" Rigid Arm together with flexible gooseneck arms for even more possibilities. Flexible gooseneck arms are limited in reach and strength - but by splicing together rigid arms and flexible gooseneck arms you get the best of both worlds. Use our rigid arms to get the reach you need, then add a flexible gooseneck arm to provide the flexibility. Each rigid arm is 12" long and features the same 3/8"-24 female threads on each end. Rigid arms are hollow and weight 0.35 lbs. Each end has a 4mm set screw and we include a 2mm Allen wrench. One 1" threaded stud is included (SCP-STUD1) with each rigid arm for splicing to a flexible gooseneck arm or another rigid arm.Detailed information about our flexible gooseneck and rigid arms can be found here
