Reviews Summary for Geotool Pickup Truck Stake Pocket Antenna Mounts
Geotool Pickup Truck Stake Pocket Antenna Mounts Reviews: 15 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $64.95


The antenna mount design so unique
it has been awarded a patent!

Our heavy duty PICKUP-TRUCK ANTENNA MOUNTS were developed to provide AMATEUR, CB, and COMMERCIAL radio operators with a very strong, easily installed antenna mount for several types of antennas.
Off-road driving puts a significant strain on light-weight antenna mounts currently being sold. Relatively strong "ball" mounts require drilling 3 holes in the body of your vehicle. However, these permanently damage your exposed sheet metal, and can eventually cause fatigue of the body panel. GeoTool Antenna Mounts take advantage of the extra strength of the stake pocket holes, which are designed to handle large racks for transporting equipment and materials. Our mounts are inserted into the stake pocket, and anchored to the bottom of the stake pocket by a 9/16" bolt. GeoTool mounts will endure rugged off road conditions, and will easily cope with modern freeway and turnpike driving.
Product is in production.

A great solid mount  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Bought one of these last year to mount a 2m/70cm antenna on my F-150. My original intention in buying it was to allow use of LMR-400 as the feedline, however the co-ax must be attached to the mount before inserting it in the stake pocket and needs to fit in a 0.250" groove machined in the side of the mount. I ended up using LMR-240, but am completely satisfied with the result.
Took a little doing and a 2' extension on my rachet drive to install the nut that fastens the mount to the bottom of the pocket -- this may be easier on other vehicles, but the end result is a mount that is rock solid and will never vibrate loose. Also available with a pre-installed co-ax pigtail for a more off-the-shelf solution.
Highly recommended.

Simple, Strong and good looking  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
This is the best mount I have used as well as the strongest. Little to no modification needed to install and it looks great. Not only does it keep you from drilling holes it allows you to run the coax safely along the frame where it won't get pinched ( at least in my case ). Well worth the money!!

Perfect for pickups!  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
My GEOTOOL mounts have been on my 2004 Chevy 1500 Crew Cab for about 8 months. Certainly provides a secure, grounded, and solid mount without having to drill holes in the body of the truck or bed as any drilling provides for the chance for rust. I have a Yaesu ATAS-120 and a Diamond SG-7900 mounted on the geotool mounts.

Great Mount  Time owned: more than 12 months
You can't go wrong with one of these. I've had mine in the back corner pocket of a Silverado pick-up for four years. Once you've got it tightened down and properly shimmed, it isn't going to move. You may break your antenna off on a low-hanging limb or the drive thru window at McDonalds, but the mount will never give you a problem. You get a good ground to the truck body and the antenna is high and in the clear. I've used all kinds of 3/8 X 24 antennas on mine, but mostly a Hustler with a 75 meter coil. It's the best HF mobile mount I've had.

NO B.S Antenna Mount For Pick-Up's  Time owned: more than 12 months
It's now been several years and this mount is still going strong. Check out the pics that users have submitted and you will see my F150 with a Texas Bug Catcher.
