Deluxe Universal Clamp

This is simply the best clamp we have found for mounting the Buddistick onto a picnic bench, apartment railing, or hotel window sill. 

The clamp is designed to allow the antenna to quickly adjust to any angle with a quick turn of the knob.   This is particularly useful when working from a hotel or apartment window where vertical space is limited. 

Will accommodate any mounting surface up to 1.5" thick. Weight is 2 oz. Neoprene pads protect the clamping surface

Extra Coil Clips (3)

These are extra coil clips that are used as replacements or just to make it easier to change bands without having to move the clips. We have them manufactured to precise dimensions by a company that makes heart catheters and other micro-size parts. Manufactured from Swiss stainless steel. Sold as a set of 3 clips.
