The Universal mount is an add-on for the older Contour cameras that allow the camera to be mounted on a tripod or any other 1/4" 20 threaded device. This mount is intended for the ContourGPS, ContourHD 1080p, and ContourHD 720p.
The Universal mount is not needed on the Contour+2, ContourROAM2, Contour+, or ContourROAM. These cameras have a 1/4" 20 mount built in to the bottom of the cameras. Forcing the the Universal mount on these devices may cause the mount to become stuck or the camera rails to break.
