SmartRest - Lone Shooter - Thermal Mount Kit (not including Racken Rest)
The SmartRest Lone Shooter Thermal Mount Kit is the perfect setup for shooters that do the majority of their hunting from a vehicle. The Thermal Mount Kit works only with a thermal monocular that can either via wifi, bluetooth or cable transmit the video image to a phone or table (best practise is to mount it on the dashboard). In this configuration, the driver or passenger has the ability to scan 360 degrees. For those of you who have used thermal monoculars in teh car before, you understadn the benefits of forward scanning as you will not be able to look through the windshield of your car with a thermal device.
In addition, if you have a passenger on board, both diver and passenger can spot animals and support the engagement process.
The SmartRest Lone Shooter Thermal Mount Kitcomes with the following items:
- SmartRest Racken Spotlight Bracket
- SmartRest Racken Remote Bracket
- Powa Beam Remote RC500
- SmartRest Clamp Bracket
- SmartRest Camera Weaver Adapter
Please note that you will need the SmartRest Racken Rest II (long or short)! You can buy either SmartRest Racken Rest II option here:

Please see below the details of each part included in this thermal kit:
SmartRest Racken Spotlight Bracket
The Spotlight Mount Bracket is an adapter designed to connect a remote controlled window mounted spotlight to the Racken Rest.
The bracket comes with multiple drilled holes for various fittings and all fasteners are included.
The bracket is a simple set up which is ambidextrous, and mounts well with PowaBeam's remote light and spot light.
The Mount Bracket connects the Racken Rest and the SR310 together. See diagram for more info or contact us for technical support.
Note: The light and Racken combo is not ideal for Land Cruiser or small window frame vehicles, due to lack of space in the door area.
SmartRest Racken Remote Bracket

What size is the nut on the top?

My remote is brand new and makes a squeaking noise, can I lubricate it?
If remote squeaks when turned left or right it is generally the rubber boot rubbing on the top shaft. You can stop this by a placing a small amount of Inox or WD40 at the top lip of the rubber boot where it meets the shaft.
The washers are made to be self lubricating therefore should not need additional oiling.
If your remote is still squeaking, try a very small amount of Inox or WD40 at the top of the ball joint. Please note too much may cause the ball shaft to slip, therefore reducing its ability to hold tension.
