Thanks to the new S4Gear Smartphone Bow Mount, hunters can immediately view and share their footage filmed right from their bow. The JackKnife Smartphone Bow Mount by S4Gear is mounted off of the sight mount allowing hunters to use their phone to film their hunts from the “hunter’s eyes”. Hunters can then use footage to view shot placement before tracking an animal, as a training device to review shot form and even to incorporate split screens into final video pieces on web, TV and DVD.
Designed to be universal and highly adjustable, the JackKnife’s cradle fits virtually any smartphone and can be installed on any bow with an AMO standard sight mount—right- or left-handed. The JackKnife’s cradle utilizes a protective foam lining to hold smartphones securely in place while simultaneously guarding against shock and vibration.
Installation only requires that you attach the mounting bracket to a bow’s sight mount and adjust three knobs for preferred phone placement. The swing arm hinges adjusts or completely detaches in seconds. The compact design folds flush against the riser when not in use allowing it to fit in most bow cases.
The JackKnife will also be compatible with the S4Gear WingMan treestand console. Other accessories, such as a tubular mount used for attaching the JackKife to bicycle and ATV/UTV handlebars, as well as crossbow scopes and shooting sticks, will be available by spring 2012.
