Gamber-Johnson Introduces the New NotePad V - Universal Computer Cradle
Stevens Point, WI – Gamber-Johnson, an ISO 9001:2008 certified manufacturer of rugged docking stations and vehicle mounting solutions announces the release of anew Universal Computer Cradle, the NotePad™ V — a rugged mounting cradle for most of the computers currently in the marketplace today.
The NotePad™ V is the next version of universal computer cradles in a long line of industry proven cradles from Gamber-Johnson. Dating back to the original release of the NotePad™ in 1995, Gamber-Johnson’s NotePad™ product line has stood for product quality, innovation and safety. Each new version builds upon Gamber-Johnson’s best and makes it even better.
“During the design phase of the New Notepad™ V we kept five crucial areas of importance in mind: Security, Function, Safety, Aesthetics and Installation,” notes Tom O’Brien, Product Manager, Gamber-Johnson. “Using each of the five crucial areas as guidelines we were able to improve upon our current NotePad™ IV cradle design and still keep the features that had made the NotePad™ series so popular. In the last 13 years over Gamber-Johnson has deployed over 72,000 cradles in the field.”
The result is a NotePad™ V Universal Computer Cradle with added:
- • Special “flanged” side clips provide for superior strength – computers cannot be removed by bending the side clip.
- • New heavy duty keyed lock securely closes chassis when activated.
- • Computer is supported on all sides by strengthened clip design.
- Using the same quick and easy size adjustment feature from the NotePad™ III and IV series, the NotePad™ V cradle can easily adjust to computers:
• Widths from 10.62” to 16.5”.
• Thickness up to 1.50”
• Depths from 9.00” to 12.38”
• T-molded polycarbonate covers hold clips in place during installation for easy height adjustment.
• Reversible front and back supports adjust to accommodate narrower computers and net books
• Sliding mounting plates on the underside of the cradle make mounting easy and allow for multiple offset options in the vehicle.
• All restraints are adjusted by using one tool.
• Easy in and easy out ease of use.
• The chassis surface provides a level clamping surface for the computer and prevents it from rocking in the cradle and keeps it in place even on the roughest terrain.
- • Gusseted rear support brackets allow for added restraint.
- • No catch points, no pinch points and no sharp corners
- • Tested and passed MIL STD 810G, Method 514.6, Category 24 for one hour in each axis

- • Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 30 MPH front and side impact tested and passed
• Aesthetics – The smooth surface of the anodized aluminum finish, rounded edges and sleek design enhance user comfort and safety.
• Installation – Simple, one-handed operation for inserting and removing the computer from the cradle. The computer set-up is efficient and can be done in five minutes or less. Once installed there is no need to remove the cradle if you switch computers. Adjustments are done quickly and effortlessly.
