  • Laptop mount

    Does anyone have a mount for a laptop that will work in an Explorer?

    I got a computer, but the mount and power supply were cut from the budget.
    I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.

      I have a universal one, I think it's a jotto desk. Would need a new strap though. PM me if you are interested and I can get you some pics.

        They said to set it on the passenger seat til next budget year, and charge it at the office.

        I have an inverter from when I had a travel trailer, glad I kept it...

          Mount

          There is the $30 one on Ebay. I have never used it, so I don't know how good it is. If you have a Panasonic Toughbook you can find the Lind Electronics 12 volt car cords fairly reasonably on Ebay.

            Have you actually LOOKED at the $30 ebay special?
            I'll leave it on the seat.

              Jotto desk has some nice ones that bolt under the passenger seat. They call them the no holes mount. I work at a buisness that builds cop cars and they are popular, not sure about the price. What year is your rig? were are working on some '08 for a S.O. now, so I'll look at what they are using and check price. I'll also see if we any extras lying around they we may be able to get rid of. I'll pm you with what I find out.

                  I bought one off of ebay about 2 years ago and it works/looks great in a jeep liberty. I'm a corrections officer but I'm also volunteer EMA, and it has come in very handy. However, the mount I bought on ebay is different than the $30 ones listed now. The one I bought was $50 and the seller is no longer selling them.

                  Look on ebay at item number - 170238881148 - now that is neat I could use the fans and extra usb ports.

                    Mine Explorer is an '03. The installer quoted me a little over $300 for a no-drill Jotto Desk.

                    My computer can sit on the passenge rseat a LONG time beforeI shell out theat much money personaly. Esp when I should get one in the next budget.

                        Sorry to hear about the money. We are getting budget hits on othe areas. You need to tell your dept' that an unsecured loose laptop sitting in a passenger seat becomes a thing called a "projectile" during a major car crash.

                            I found out which mounts they are using, they are jotto desk. Model # 425-5345, they run around 340.00 from their web site, but you should look around I'm sure you could find one cheaper, possibly used from another dept. Also PM sent.
