    home made air vent holder for XXL 540S
    using acrylic 4" (air vent width) x 4.5" cutoff piece
    easymount suction cup sticks like crazy on acrylic
    surface (just like on windshield)
    easy to store away without a trace
    (pulling the acrylic out from the vent)
    and easy to insert it into the vent

    That looks very good. Your car clock needs adjusting, presuming the TomTom gets the correct time from the satellites. ;->)

    The vents on SWMBO's Freestar and my Taurus have a vertical orientation and I don't have an easymount holder but I like your idea.

    Just on a safety question... how does it secure to the vent.... on those emergency full stops that could come flying out.....
    Other than that.... that is a good concept....good job

    there is a non skip pad stick to the bottom of acrylic
    the width of the acrylic is the width of the vent
    there is about 1" into the vent
    the thickness of the acrylic is just about the cap of the vent
    the vent itself close tight to the acrylic due the weight of the TT pulling down
    looks like it stays pretty secure there
    i do not worry about the emergency full stops
    because it will even hold more secure due to the direction it will goes.
    but i know it won't stay on high impact accidents
    for now it stays really good even on bumpy roads
    hope these answer your question
