Life Hack – Fixing a Dash Mount

This isn’t so much a DIY as it was a simple life hack I did recently.  When doing long highway drives, I often use a radar detector for a little extra help.  Trouble is, the bracket that mounts it to my windshield doesn’t work very well.

As you can see, the suction cups don’t stay in their spot anymore and I’ve actually lost one.  So instead, I came up with a quick fix.

I applied one side of a picture hanging command strip to the bottom of the detector.
