A must-have for thumpers.

Single-cylinder bikes like to vibrate. And that vibration can kill the image-stabilization mechanism in your phone's camera. Our Buzz-Kill vibration isolator fixes this problem by damping out those camera-killing vibrations.

It's based on a mechanism called a wire-rope isolator that uses stranded stainless steel wire to convert vibrational energy into heat (not enough for you to feel though). The beauty of this design is that it's incredibly rugged, as it's made entirely out of aluminum and stainless steel. No rubber to degrade over time.

The Buzz-Kill bolts to the back of our Perfect Squeeze phone mount and is compatible with ourLow-Profile bar clamps (requires the Portrait Adpater Plate), RAM ball and socket accessories, or can be bolted right to a dash plate.

NOTE: If you have an older version of the Perfect Squeeze that has the dovetail machined right into the base, you'll need to upgrade to our current version of the Perfect Squeeze in order to use the Buzz-Kill. Due to the weight of a tablet, the Buzz-Kill will not work with our Big Squeeze tablet mount. For use with the Perfect Squeeze only.

 

About Us

What's our deal?

Well, we like to think of ourselves as a secret cabin in the woods filled with high-tech manufacturing gear where lab-coated wizards toil away designing and building specialized adventure gear. In reality we're just a small shop in the mountains of Montana filled with high-tech manufacturing gear. Inside, four people and four robots toil away designing and building specialized adventure gear. (Thus far the robots have not designed anything on their own... as far as we know)

We don't wear lab coats, we're not really wizards (as far as I know), but we are dedicated to designing and making robust mechanical widgets for your outdoor adventures.

That's what we do now, but where did we come from?

Well... long ,long ago back in 2012, I started making stuff in an 80 square foot garage. There was no heat and just one outlet. I had a little benchtop CNC machine and a hacksaw. I made whatever interested me: parts for bicycles, parts for motorcycles, trucks, and videography tools. The machine buzzed, breathe made white clouds in the unheated air, and two really neat things emerged from that shop: A scratch built 1.5hp motorcycle/bicycle contraption that I cajoled across the Mojave desert, and a small tool called a follow focus that I posted to Kickstarter on a whim.

The bike didn't strand me in the desert, and the kickstarter project exceeded my most extreme expectations. I quit my job, found a shop with heat, bought some bigger machines and began a new chapter as a professional widget maker.
