The REO Mounting Systems' Universal Pedestal can swivel and tilt to achieve optimum position for officer use. The minimal height of 6 1/4 inches makes this pedestal air bag compliant. The patented articulating arm pedestal and computer docking system is designed with officer safety and comfort in mind. The system provides for the computer to be securely held at all times. The computer, when used as recommended, will be held in an airbag safe but useable position while cruising, and when stationary can be released to be comfortable in use by either driver or passenger. The computer can also be positioned facing the passenger door for easy access while on a traffic stop, ensuring the safety of the officer. Both laptop computers and three-piece computers can be mounted on the REO system.
