Selecting a Mantis Model and Mount for your Application:


Determining which Mantis Mount and Model is as easy as 1-2-3!  There are three primary decisions you will need to make when choosing the right Mantis and Mount(s) for your application(s):  


  1. Selection of your Mantis Mount(s): The first thing you need to do is determine your mounting bracket options based on where you want to use your Mantis.   Your Mounting Bracket allows you to connect your Mantis to your desired location.  We offer 14 different Mounts to allow you to connect your Mantis "almost anywhere" you want it.   


 2. Determination of the Vertical Height needed for your application(s): Which Mantis Model you select depends on the vertical height needed from where your mount attaches to above your head to ensure the Mantis has clearance.    For most applications, we recommend  6" - 2' of overhead clearance, based in part on personal preference.   We have grouped our models based on vertical height. 


3. Selection of your specific Mantis Model(s):   Model features include:  Vertical  Height, Height adustabilty, Fabric Material (Polyester or Sunbrella acrylic), Fabric Color,  Aluminum Frame finish (glossy or Matte) and Frame Color (silver or white).   Your ulitmate choices here will depend on your preferences, requirements, and budget.
