Suction cup mounts for electronic logging devices or ELDs are not the best option. In fact, in several states, these aren’t even legal. Consider the problems you may face if you stick with an ELD suction cup. Instead, look at a quality ProClip product for mounting your devices in commercial vehicles and trucks.
Legal Issues With Mounting ELDs
The biggest reason you want to avoid using suction cup mounts for ELDs is legality. In at least 21 states including Alabama, Georgia, Nebraska, Oregon, and Washington, DC, these windshield mounts are illegal. You risk being fined or penalized during a Department of Transportation (DOT) inspection if you are using the wrong mount when driving in certain states. Here at ProClip, we keep you in the loop with information on the right types of mounts for each state. We will also help you choose the right mounting setup for your vehicle based on where you live and drive.
Temperature Considerations for Trucks
In extreme temperatures, such as hot, humid climates or subzero temperatures, suction cups are not the best solution. The suction is lost due to moisture or change of rigidity in the plastic used for affixing the ELD to the windshield. As a result, your mounted ELD can fall off and potentially become damaged. In addition, you are unable to access your ELD while moving in this situation and are forced to pull over. If you are a commercial truck driver working on duty, you cannot afford to do this. Save yourself the trouble and get the best in-vehicle mobile mounting solution from ProClip USA.
