FYYFF! Love this photo by trail717

Jwats - you bastard....

I haven't had a full debrief yet on the recent Baja run, but I am gathering that it was excellent! The only thing missing, was me...

Thanks for the endorsement, and of course, for once again Baja field crash testing the cradle for the data. Very good. I owe you a beer. Again.

As for the "FYYFF," have you seen this new favorite picture of me, taken by my Legends of the Fall co-rider, Marshal? I must post it here, and fly this salute back to you....

It's the bomb!




Overlooking Death Valley, I send my best greetings as I pose with the rocks.

Leith, my friend!

I was thinking of you just this past week, and how I need to shoot you a line! Thanks for the kind words as well, Good Sir. (Okay, I'll give one "Good Sir" out to Jwats as well, but that's his budget for the year....)

I've still got cradles for the G78, and I'm about to announce sales for the Gen2 SPOTs after I sort out my pre-sale preamble and liability form for people to sign and get back to me regarding my explicit instructions to remove the safety tabs/button covers prior to installation... then it's good to go for those. (GEN1 SPOTS later...)

But haven't yet tooled up for any other GPS's though I really want to tool for the Garmin 62's. No offers from anybody to send me theirs so I can do my tooling yet.

So, Leith, I dunno what to tell you on that - although I am humbled and flattered by your support. I wish I had better means to earn that praise just now. As it is, I'm still struggling to keep up with what I got on my plate, even though I want to release some new forms this winter. Let me know what you are strongly considering as you shop, and I will do what I can as I can. No promises, but at least let me know what units you are leaning toward. I'll shoot back-atcha with some pms, okay?

All the best my friend.

(You too Joe!)

Sincerely,

Stovey

Well my good fellow I am looking @ the 62 pretty seriously (I may buy from the US and post directly to you if somebody hasn't offered before hand)

or

one of these bad boys - I am thinking a UHF radio would be handy for chatting with my homies

G62 vs. Rino

Leith!

Well, you would certainly be welcome to have a drop shipment to me for a G62, it wouldn't be the first time a customer did that. The Rino though, is a problematic unit for my design, with the PTT buttons on the side precluding the use of my current design, which I am hard pressed to re-do. I've already worked with them, and they are a pain to do, and cost prohibitive. So I moved on after fiddling with those. But I hear you on their appeal. I've never owned own, and the radio work I do is with GMRS/FRS (I am "Whiskey-Queen-Echo-Echo Four-Two-Five) on separate hand-helds. You'll have to decide which way to go and there's certainly appeal to both setups, including the Rino's.

I just know I won't be tooling up for those... I apologize.

We should chat more though, especially if you decide to go with a G62.

All the Best!

Stovey

Wanted to check in with you. The Cradle has been solid as a rock and I haven't ridden with out it since.

I just pulled the trigger on one of those Spot 2 units and I thought to myself this could use one a bombproof cradle. Have you made one before?

Gen1 and Gen2 SPOT cradles

N8,

I apologize for not replying earlier - for some reason I didn't get notification of a reply to this thread, and you've been left neglected. Not on purpose, but I'm sorry for that.

The answer is "YES" I do have tooling up for both Gen1 and Gen2 SPOTs, and they are available in Carbon Kydex and Black. I have a liability release that I need each SPOT cradle customer to read and sign and send back to me, releasing me from harm from things like signal loss from the SPOT satellite system and for the Gen2 SPOT installation instructions. My plastics do not interfere with any of the signals, but I need a sign-off from each SPOT user at the time of sale making that point clear. (I'm not going to wear the technology glitches inherent in the SPOT device and satellite technology systems when there is intermittent signal loss - that is a known issue with all satellite technology and the SPOTs are emergency locator beacons.)

Also, for the Gen2 SPOTs, they must be installed with the safety covers removed from the SPOT devices first, so that in an emergency, the buttons can be accessed without having to disassemble the cradle. In the event the user is injure and can't use his hands properly, he can still get at the buttons. They are already protected inside the cradle, and the user must agree to this install at the time of purchase. That's the indemnification in a nutshell, and here is the copy verbatim:



Buzz-Bomb Cradle For
SPOT Locator/Messenger/Tracker
Emergency Beacon
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS AND CONDITIONS
OF USE

Every SPOT user is 100% responsible and liable for use, misuse, accidental activation of their SPOT units and accounts. Using a cradle to carry it on a vehicle such as a motorcycle, ATV, snowmobile, personal watercraft, ultralight aircraft or anything else is fine – but it doesn’t in any way negate the user’s responsibilities. Ever. Period.

Installing a SPOT emergency beacon/satellite tracker-locator into a BUZZ-BOMB cradle will not cause satellite interference with the SPOT signal. However, SPOT satellite signals will experience intermittent failures to communicate between the SPOT units and the SPOT satellites as part of that technology and the limitations of that technology. Understand that as a SPOT user.

If a SPOT unit fails to communicate with its satellite and/or vice versa, you agree to hold the maker of the Buzz-Bomb cradle harmless of any and all liability and damages whatsoever. Use this cradle made of materials tested and known to be radio frequency transparent by KLEERDEX and BOLTARON laboratories at your own risk. The material will not cause any interference with GPS or SPOT devices, period.

SPOT Generation 2 Unit owners – Read and understand and comply with the following instructions: NEVER INSTALL YOUR 2nd Generation SPOT device into a Buzz-Bomb Cradle with the SPOT factory safety covers in place. YOU MUST PHYSICALLY REMOVE BOTH PLASTIC TAB SAFETY COVERS THAT COVER THE HELP AND 911 ACTIVATION BUTTONS PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR SPOT INSIDE THE BUZZ-BOMB CRADLE. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THIS INSTRUCTION COULD RESULT IN INADVERTANT SPOT ACTIVATION, SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

If the safety covers are left in place and then the SPOT is installed inside a Buzz-Bomb cradle, the SPOT user will not be able to intentionally press the buttons which activate the SPOT functions without first removing the SPOT from the cradle. This may take an effort or demand manual dexterity and mental acuity that a SPOT user who is injured may not possess, and therefore may not be able to successfully activate the SPOT and call for needed assistance. It is therefore IMPERATIVE that the purchaser/user of this BUZZ-BOMB cradle fully understand this installation instruction, and agree to always install the 2nd Generation SPOT with the safety covers removed first, and never install a 2nd Generation SPOT with the safety covers in place.

This understanding, and an initialed and signed copy of same, is a condition of sale and use of this product.

I understand that I am the SPOT user and I alone am 100% responsible for use, misuse and accidental activation(s) of my SPOT device. ____________ initial here

I understand the warning about intermittent satellite signal loss between SPOT devices and SPOT satellites. _________________ initial here

I understand I will always install my Gen 2 SPOT after first removing the SPOT factory safety covers (2 plastic tabs) and never install my Gen 2 SPOT with the factory safety covers (2 plastic tabs) in place. ________________ initial here.

I will never allow my SPOT to be used by another person in any manner contrary to conditions above. ____________________initial here

Understood and agreed to as conditions of purchase and use:



______________________________ _______________________________
(Print Name) (Signature Name)



______________________________
(Date)



************************************************** **************************************


Copy and paste this form and mail it to me along with your check so I can have it on file, and I'll mail you the cradle. As in the past, you need to order with me first here either by PM or e-mail to confirm availability and color choice, then I can either hold one for you or make one. Please don't just mail a form and a check without ordering from me first.

All cradles remain $75, check or money order only, and I pay USPS Priority Flat Rate shipping to CONUS ADV Inmates.

Thanks for all and I apologize for the late reply on this thread.


All the best,


Stovey

Hi Team Otten,

Not any time in the foreseeable future, I am sorry. But since you can get armored boxes for these things you could mount the RAM diamond/ball to a box and run it that way. Not the same as having full-on access to the device without removing it from a box, I realize.... but as it is, I need to tool for some other things before I get to smart phones. Thank you sincerely for the interest and encouragement.

All the best,

Stovey

The Stovey cradle has been working a charm. Thanks for putting together a great product thats stood up to some abuse.

Cheers,

Justin

Greetings me Harty,

No, the G60 cradles do NOT fit the G62.... I am trying to tool for the newer G62 series this winter, and hope to have them available in Spring. I apologize. Many people have asked me about it over the past couple years, and I've had to reply the same thing, but I am going on in earnest at some expense to get this tooled and available. Will post here and PM to you when it hits. If you aren't satisfied with the cradle for your 62 at that time, you can get one of mine...



Thank you Sir....

Stovey

Thanks TEAM FTB!

Wish I was there, with my snake and crawly-thing repellant on and in force.....

Glad the cradle is working hard for you and I appreciate your kind words of support.

Here's my current lineup, with both SPOTs now available..... hoping for the newer G62 soon as well.















All the best to you, Justin!

Sincerely,

Stovey

All orders up to date and shipped as of today. I'm playing hooky with my wife for Spring Break, even though we don't actually own any children.... I am going to make believe we have kids in school on break, and take off next week with the dogs and a motorcycle. If I miss your PM regarding a cradle correspondence, I'll catch up with them as soon as I return sometime during the last week in March.

Thanks for all you guys!

All the best,

Stovey
