    BUP quarter-turn insert comparison

    Our quarter-turn inserts are the same as the Garmin OEM quarter-turn inserts. These inserts are thicker and harder to flex but unfortunately much more expensive to manufacture. That is why virtually all 3rd party computer and Varia mounts on the market use  these inexpensive inserts with two holes for flat head screws. They are thinner and, as we learned, more prone to failure.

    Our mount arms have a tab at the bottom of the arm to brace the Varia and limit the torque on the quarter-turn. This has a greater affect on the RTL 510 and 515 due to their length and offset battery weight. While inserts are sacrificial, this design feature also helps to lengthen the life of the insert. BUP mount arm pressure tab
    Safety tether with arm The arm places the pivot point above the Varia. This helps to counteract the pivoting due to having the weight below the mount connection point. This means less force is required when tightening the arm to prevent unwanted rotation from potholes and general vibrations.

    All BUP mounts are manufactured and hand assembled in the USA
