After you have attached the Genetec hardmount to your vehicle, you must attach the SharpX camera using the pan/tilt/roll bracket.


  1. Assemble the pan/roll bracket hardware using the included documentation.
  2. Attach the pan/roll bracket to the hardmount using four hex-head cap screws, flat washers, and split washers as shown in the documentation included with the hardmount. Set the alignment for the bracket to allow the bracket to pivot from forward to 90 degrees to the side.
    Tip: Don’t over tighten as you will still need to aim the SharpX camera later.
