RapidMount SLX Installation Instructions

Compatible Mounting Surfaces

The RapidMount SLX is designed to be used with the Tether Tools RapidStrips. RapidStrips adhere to smooth and lightly textured surfaces including drywall, painted walls, veneer, glass, mirror, laminate, fiberglass, metal, tile, porcelain and marble. Do not mount to raw wood, brick, soft plastics, vinyl, fabric, Venetian painted surfaces, or wallpaper.

Prepping the Mounting Surface

Before mounting ensure surface is free of oils and dirt. Gently clean mounting surface with rubbing alcohol and cloth. Let dry. Do not use household cleaners. Be sure to follow compatible surface guidelines for best results.

Applying the SLX

Loosen drawstring on SLX. Peel backing off RapidStrip (RS). Attach RS to back of SLX. Peel backing off other side of RS. Press device, with RS, firmly against mounting surface for 30 seconds. Let cure 3 minutes. Press device against wall again to ensure RS adhesive is firmly attached to the surface before mounting speedlight in holder.

How to Add a Speedlight to the SLX

Place speedlight in cradle, angle light as needed and tighten drawstring to secure around joint of speedlight. SLX will accommodate an attachable trigger (transmitter) under cradle or hanging from SLX arm. Modifiers can be added to speedlights. Be sure to maintain less than 1.5lbs of gear in holder.

How to Remove the SLX

To remove SLX from surface, place thumb and forefinger on the top corner of the RapidMount SLX. Pull slowly from one side of the device, with applied pulling pressure, to release seal on strip. Once removed from the surface, peel off RS. When ready to use again, repeat process with new RapidStrip.
