Real Avid Adds Mounts to Smart-Assist Quick-Connect System

Real Avid, the leader in DIY for Guns®, solved the “third hand” issue when the company introduced its Smart-Assist Quick-Connect System for DIY firearm enthusiasts and professional gunsmiths. The system, comprised of a 180-lumen work light, a 5-inch magnifying glass, and a cell phone holder, uses flexible arms that attaches to a quick-connect Smart-Dock™ to enhance the work experience. Now, Real Avid expands the Smart-Assist Quick-Connect System with three new docking mounts to accommodate a variety of work areas and needs.

First is the Smart-Assist – Surface Mount. The Surface Mount comes in a three-pack (one for each Smart-Assist accessory) and is designed to mount flush on a benchtop or wall via three screws. With this system, multiple docks can be placed in various areas across your work area so you always have the tools you need, where you need them. The mount is also reversible, allowing you to either mount it on the surface of the work bench or flush with the bench top to keep the surface flat.

Second is the Smart-Assist – Magnetic Mount. For use on steel surfaces, the Magnetic Mount integrates six strong magnets in its base, allowing it to be placed in a variety of positions for optimal performance.

Finally, there is the Smart-Assist – C-Mount. Operating similar to a C-clamp, the C-Mount is designed to provide a stable mount on flat edges, such as the edge of a workbench. This unit is reversable and includes four Smart-Assist docks — two on the bottom and two on top.

MSRPs for the Smart-Assist – Surface Mount 3-Pack, Magnetic Mount, and C-Mount are $19.99, $29.99, and $24.99, respectively.
