The TetraMouse Mounting System consists of a Clamp Base or Flange Base mounting option, and the Articulated Arm.
The Clamp Base mounts to any flat surface from 1/2" (12mm) to 1-1/2" (38mm) thick, such as a table top. Thinner surfaces may be clamped to using an appropriate size block of wood as a shim. The Clamp Base may also be clamped to tubular objects from 5/8" (16mm) to 1-1/2" (38mm) in diameter.
The Flange Base is a more permanent mounting option. It is secured to a surface using wood screws or machine screws. The wood screws are used to mount to a wood surface with a minimum thickness of 5/8" (16mm). The machine screws can be used to mount to any surface up to 7/8" (23mm) thick, by drilling clearance holes through the surface. Woods screws, machine screws, nuts and washers and a drilling template are provided with the Flange Base.
The Articulated Arm consists of two 1-foot long segments joined with universal connectors that allow infinite variation of position of the TetraMouse.
The plastic parts of the Mounting System are made of non-toxic, biodegradeable PLA plastic (made from corn starch or other starches). The metal arms are black anodized aluminum. The Mounting System is supplied with a threaded mounting adapter for the TetraMouse, and cable clips to route and hold the USB cable neatly along the arms.
The Mouse Mounting Stud simply screws onto the 1/4", 20 threads per inch threaded stud protruding from the rear of the TetraMouse.
NOTE: When the TetraMouse Mounting System is ordered with a TetraMouse, the threaded adapter (shown in the TetraMouse Manuals as the "Mouse Mounting Stud") is pre-installed on the TetraMouse.
Please refer to the TMXS Manual or the TMXA Manual for instuctions on how to set up the TetraMouse Mounting System.
