RAM-Compatible Mount Adapter
An adapter that allows the LipSync to be mounted to a RAM mount system
Setup & instructions
This 3D printable mounting adapter enables a LipSync to be mounted using commercially available B-Size RAM® mounting systems. The adapter has an external 1/2 inch NPT thread on one side and a 1″ ball on the other. The 1″ ball is compatible with B-Sized RAM® mounts. This adapter can also be used to mount to other devices with a 1/2″ NPT internal thread, such as PVC adapters.
To use the mounting adapter to mount a LipSync, the mounting adapter threads directly into the LipSync housing. A 24 mm wrench, crescent wrench, or slip-joint pliers can be used on the hex portion of the adapter to help thread it into place. Once the adapter is threaded in, a suitable RAM® Double Socket Arm (e.g. https://www.rammount.com/part/RAM-B-201U) is connected to the ball portion. The RAM® mounting can then be adjusted to position the LipSync in the right place.
This adapter can also be used to mount to other devices with a 1/2″ NPT internal thread. For example, it can be used to connect to a RAM mount to a section of 1/2″ PVC using a 1/2″ NPT x 1/2″ socket PVC adapter. The mounting adapter is inserted into the PVC adapter and then tightened. The PVC pipe is then inserted into the PVC adapter.
The 3D printing files and print settings are available at the Thingiverse link. The mounting adapter should be printed with 4 perimeters and 80% infill for strength.
The filament required for 3D printing the adapter should be about $0.75 CAD.
