It will fall out if you are just using the outer ring part... just use a dry wall butterfly anchor, that's what I did...

I forget the size I got, but I got the larger type with higher weight rating. Just got to Home Depot or local hardware store and find that'll fit.

Did you use this instead of the rubber piece?

I cut off the large rubber piece and drilled out the hole just to give a little padding for the stem so it's not sitting on the metal of the bike.

I am using a RAM claw mount to clamp to the top triple clamp. I got an adhesive RAM mount ball and stuck it on the bottom of my Escort Max 360 radar detector. At the moment I zip tied a phone holder to the top of the radar detector. Another option was using the RAM phone xmount with the claw clamp. The Escort has blue tooth and talks with an app on the phone. The frustrating part is that the detector will not communicate with a helmet headset. I have one of those bright led helmet gadgets that shines bright when the detector finds something. Will combine that with running the Escort app on the phone and see how that works. The claw mount is kind of clunky and easy to steal, but also easy to put on and take off.

This is the x grip that I am not using at the moment but might.

Thanks! I ordered the clamp with the X-claw. So is your setup to have the Escort bluetooth with your phone, then your phone bluetooth to headset? Or do you just wear wired earbuds? I use a SENA SM-10 to transmit from a Uniden R1 to wireless earbuds or headset depending on the helmet.

At present I do not have a headset. I use this system https://www.legalspeeding.com/HARD-S...m#.W6P0Ni-ZNBw to alert me that the detector has picked up something then I can look at the phone for more details. Not ideal and it is a work in progress. Very frustrating that I can't send the Escort audio to a bluetooth headset. The escort is great in the car because you can hear the audio alerts from the detector itself. Escort really does need to enable the max 360 to connect to a headset. It already can connect to a phone, so a headset should not require much more work. Probably just a firmware update. I bought the 360 for a car to start with.

So here is how I have mine set up, right now I only have a rubber band to help hold it down because the magnet RAM mount isn't strong enough on bumps... I will eventually get around to finding some metal or plastic pieces I can use to lock it the radar detector in place so I can just twist to dock/undock. But the RAM mount has a nice little profile, people don't know what it is and just curious what the heck my phone mount is
