Escort, Inc., the leader in design, engineering and manufacturing of radar/laser detectors, is now selling a revolutionary new radar detector rearview mirror mount that creates the visual appearance of a fusion between automobile and radar detector.

The innovative new BlendMount was created by northern Calif. J28 Design and is one of the few automobile accessories that Escort, Inc. purchases from an independent manufacturer.
The partnership makes sense for the company and for their clientele. The BlendMount replaces the industry standard of suction cup mounting with a rearview mirror mount that is a state-of-the-art precision instrument like the radar detectors they are designed to cradle.
“I wanted a custom mounting solution for my own use that not only provided security but also esthetically enhanced the precision equipment, the vehicle and the entire driving experience,” J28 Design President Michael Giordano said. “It also had to be easy to install and provide maximum radar coverage.”
The solution Giordano created was constructed of aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum. Each finished piece is a work of art that appears as if factory installed in vehicles renowned as automotive royalty. Giordano knew his brethren, car enthusiasts who used Escort radar detectors, would require the highest standards of esthetics, precision and flexibility including the ability to make multiple adjustments for perfect placement of the radar detector.
