S4Gear Announces Release of JackKnife Smartphone Bow Mount
December 1, 2011 (Eugene, OR)
—Thanks to the new patent-pending JackKnife
smartphone bow mount from S4Gear, hunters will no longer have to wait
to get home to see their latest adventure. With the ability to view and
share their footage filmed right from their
bow, its social media live in the woods!
Mounted off of the sight mount, the JackKnife allows hunters to use
their phone to film their hunts from the “hunter’s eyes”. Footage can
then be used to view shot placement before tracking an animal, as a
training device to review shot form and even used to
incorporate split screens into final video pieces on web, TV and DVD.
“With Smartphone video capabilities that seem to be getting better by
the minute, we figured there had to be a way for hunters to utilize
their phones they were already taking into the woods,” stated Jerid
Strasheim, VP of sales & marketing for S4Gear. “There’s
a lot of products on the market that can capture the hunt, but none of
them allow you the ability to view and share the footage instantly.”
Designed to be universal and highly adjustable, the JackKnife’s cradle
fits virtually any smartphone and can be installed on any bow with an
AMO standard sight mount—right or left handed, with sight and quiver
installed. The JackKnife’s cradle utilizes a protective
foam lining to hold smartphones securely in place while simultaneously
guarding against shock and vibration.
Installation is easy with nothing more to it than attaching the mounting
bracket to a bow’s sight mount and adjusting three knobs for preferred
phone placement. The swing arm hinges, adjusts or completely detaches in
seconds. The compact design folds flush
against the riser when not in use and still fits in most bow cases.
The JackKnife will also be compatible with S4Gear’s WingMan treestand
console. Other accessories, such as a tubular mount used for attaching
the JackKife to bicycle and ATV/UTV handlebars, as well as crossbow
scopes and shooting sticks, will be available by
