Lug-style antenna stud
Antenna and coax sold separately
These Firestik mounts were specifically designed to enable antenna installation on vehicles where other mounts might not work. The primary goal was to offer a mount that could attach to the inner door jamb, such as the jamb found on the rear or side door of a cargo van. The mounting screws are on the inner edge of the jamb, eliminating visible holes in the vehicle. Like many other Firestik mounts, the versatility of these mounts go well beyond their targeted use. For antennas up to 4' tall.
Bracket parts and mounting hardware are made of stainless steel for years of trouble-free use. The bracket is 1.5" (38mm) wide and has a 2" (50mm) reach for mounting inside the door jamb. Overall, the mount is 4.2" (105mm) long. In order to compensate for the door jamb angles, the stud bracket will swivel a full 180 degrees, 90 in each direction. This feature lets you mount the antenna on the left or right side of the vehicle.
- Ring or terminal coax attachment
- Two-year warranty
I searched the internet for a mount that would work in the hatch of my Subaru Crosstrek--this was the only one I would find. As it turned out, I could not mount an antenna in a fully vertical position anywhere in the hatch. My great good fortune was a local mechanic was able to bend it so that the antenna was correctly mounted. Otherwise, the mount is adequate--solid enough to secure a 4 ft fiberglass antenna. Because there are countless angles on trunks and hatches you won't know if this one will fit until you try it. If it works, I'd recommend you use robust screws in all 4 mounting holes to attach it to the sheet metal.
First I have to say, I got the Mount on Amazon not Right Channel Radios but I did use there guides to figure out what would work best for my WJ. I love this Mount I installed it in my rear left tail light bucket and it looks super clean, I was able to run the firering coax that came with it along the light and inside by my lift gate. It was super easy to install the only problem I had was that the holes I drilled were a little to big for the screws that came with it, but I had plenty of extras that were big enough so it works great, really sturdy.
Nothing but the best,didnt expect nothing less.
I received this unit and installed it a few days later. It was a breeze and very few tools needed. I had the option to mount this anywhere I liked. I placed it in the rear of my SUV at the tailgate about midway up. Gave me the height I wanted/needed for a great signal. I would recommend this product to anyone.
Using the antenna with optima MK 3 on 10M, 11M& 12M. I would recommend using a star washer on the bolt with the slotted hole.
