For example, they use the existing seat bolts for mounting your laptop computer. Most of these mounts let your laptop to stay mounted and keep it in place while your car is on the move. If you are someone who has multiple cars, say if you are an owner of a car rental, then having the capability of mounting a laptop without drilling is valuable to you.

PLUS, tripod mounts have key features that no other laptop car mounts have – namely the light weight of the laptop stand and the adjustability of its height.
