Chicago - Aries Manufacturing said on Monday it would begin shipping a line of Cobra-branded universal device mounts in the spring.
All of the models are designed to be installed without tools, and all feature adjustable locking joints for ease of viewing while allowing full access to all device ports and controls. Mounts are installed using the company's Ever-Last BreakAway adhesive, said to leave behind zero residue. Stickiness can be revived by spraying with glass cleaner, Aries added.
The new models include a cigarette lighter mount ($24.95), GPS/PDA device mount ($24.95), headrest mount ($24.95), and universal weighted base ($19.95), which has a hard plastic center that provides a mounting surface for use with any brand of device mount.
Also included in the line are the Cobra universal Mini mount, meant for GPS, MP3 and smartphone users, and the universal Flex mount with a flexible neck design for use on glass surfaces. Both are $19.95. The universal Anti-Stick Double Stick Pad ($9.95) is engineered to rest on any dash to hold CE devices.
There is also a universal tripod desktop stand that has a $19.95 suggested retail.
