S4Gear New JackKnife Smartphone Bow Mount
S4Gear Announces Release of S4 JackKnife Smartphone Bow Mount. Our dependence on technology continues to be very apparent. What happened to the time when we went to the woods just to bowhunt and get away from everything. Well those days are few and far between due to the pressures on our lives. I am as guilty as anyone who tries to multi-task even when I am in the tree. Well if you are looking for a way to have full access to your phone this new S4 Phone Bow Mount may be the ticket. I saw this new bow mount at the ATA show and it is really well made and fits very securely on your bow. So, you can easy text, check email or shoot video from our phone and not be worried if it is going to rattle or fall off. Great product for 2012!
Thanks to the new patent-pending JackKnife smartphone bow mount from S4Gear, hunters will no longer have to wait to get home to see their latest adventure. With the ability to view and share their footage filmed right from their bow, its social media live in the woods!
Mounted off of the sight mount, the JackKnife allows hunters to use their phone to film their hunts from the “hunter’s eyes”. Footage can then be used to view shot placement before tracking an animal, as a training device to review shot form and even used to incorporate split screens into final video pieces on web, TV and DVD.
“With Smartphone video capabilities that seem to be getting better by the minute, we figured there had to be a way for hunters to utilize their phones they were already taking into the woods,” stated Jerid Strasheim, VP of sales & marketing for S4Gear. “There’s a lot of products on the market that can capture the hunt, but none of them allow you the ability to view and share the footage instantly.”
Designed to be universal and highly adjustable, the JackKnife’s cradle fits virtually any smartphone and can be installed on any bow with an AMO standard sight mount-right or left handed, with sight and quiver installed. The JackKnife’s cradle utilizes a protective foam lining to hold smartphones securely in place while simultaneously guarding against shock and vibration.
Installation is easy with nothing more to it than attaching the mounting bracket to a bow’s sight mount and adjusting three knobs for preferred phone placement. The swing arm hinges, adjusts or completely detaches in seconds. The compact design folds flush against the riser when not in use and still fits in most bow cases.
The JackKnife will also be compatible with S4Gear’s WingMan treestand console. Other accessories, such as a tubular mount used for attaching the JackKife to bicycle and ATV/UTV handlebars, as well as crossbow scopes and shooting sticks, will be available by spring 2012.
