After you attach the hardmount to your vehicle, you can attach the camera using the pan/tilt/roll bracket.

What you should know

  • To attach the camera, you need the following tools:
    • Socket wrench
    • Phillips screwdriver
  • The camera mounting base has four parts:
    • Threaded base block
    • Two rubber gaskets
    • Upper mounting block
    The upper and lower mounting blocks are installed above and below the roof with the rubber gasket in between to prevent water leaks and reduce vibration.


  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 included documentation.
    • Set the alignment for the bracket to allow the bracket to pivot from forward to 90 degrees to the side.
    • Do not over-tighten because you still need to aim the camera later.
  3. Slide the camera onto the tilt bracket, with the bracket's open notch to the top.
    Leave about a 2.5 cm (1 in.) gap between the back of the bracket and the camera.
  4. Attach the camera to the bracket using the Phillips pan head screws, serrated washers, and flat washers.
  5. Attach the assembled camera and tilt bracket to the pan/roll bracket using hex-head cap screws, flat washers, and split washers.
