EXCLUSIVE: PTM Edge introduces new carbon fiber composite windshield mirror bracket

Filed under News

In an exclusive announcement to Boating Industry, PTM Edge has introduced a new bracket for its line of mirrors for watersports applications.

The CFR-200 clamping mirror bracket is manufactured with carbon fiber composite material, providing extremely strong and rigid performance. The patent pending bracket design integrates “X” bracing for rigidity and interlocking components provide for functional flexibility. In the upright performance posture, the bracket “locks” into place with the turn of a single knob, preventing the bracket from loosening and changing position. Another simple twist of the knob releases the “lock” and with an upward tug, the bracket slips from its interlocking nest, allowing the bracket to be dropped below the windshield for covering and transportation, without removal. The CFR-200 installs in minutes with 1/4″ allen wrench. The CFR-200 will accommodate all but a few specialty windshield trims and is American made.

The bracket is available May 1 and will also be sold in a combo pack with the VR-100 HD panoramic mirror.

    Our bracket is designed to slip over windshield and tighten securely in place, minimizing vibration and movement. It expands confidently to a maximum functional distance of 1 inch. However, discussing your question with the director of engineering at PTM Edge, he stated that the bolts in the bracket (which are standard) can be replaced by the customer to allow a wider opening and adequate clamping force to firmly hold on 1 1/4″ pipe. If you would like to follow up with pictures of your application, send me an email at chris.nicely@protomet.com or load one here.
