- VorTech Driver Mount - EcoTech Marine
Ever get sick of walking over to your tank to see your VorTech pump driver dangling?
Ecotech has solved the issue by offering a driver mount. The controller for the VorTech family of pumps, will simply just fall into the mount which will hold it securely in place.
Dimensions - 3.5" L x 1.5" W x 3" H
Note: One driver mount per package
Nice By Squid on 6/10/2018Squid would recommend this product to a friendI like these mounts better than the 3D printed ones and they cost about the same.
Beats the heck out of the velcro! By Member No. 1 on 3/14/2018Member No. 1 would recommend this product to a friendI tried the supplied velcro, that didn't last to long. The controller was always sliding down, falling off.
This bracket work great!
Can't for the life of me understand why Ecotech didn't include these with the pumps in the first place!
Must Buy! By Andre on 11/25/2017Andre would recommend this product to a friendThis should be included with every pump but it was created years later so I’ll give them a pass. The weight of the cable over time pulled the driver from the velcro and now it rock solid and looks more organized. This doesn’t fit Vectra M1 but the M1 does have its own mount in the box.
Better than velcro, should be included By Jimbo on 4/7/2017Jimbo would recommend this product to a friendBest mounting solution. I tried velcro like many others which held for a few months. Glad the price is low, but for what you spend on the powerheads, they should just be included in the box. Wish I had these years ago.
Vortech Driver Mount By Rafael on 3/25/2017Rafael would recommend this product to a friendI order this Vortech driver mount for my old MP40w it holds it perfectly fine I recommend this to everybody..
Better Than Velcro By Chad on 11/5/2016Chad would recommend this product to a friendIf you are tired of your driver not staying put get the mount.
Looks way better than a velcro strip,
It should be included in the cost of the pump in my opinion.
This does exactly what it is supposed to do By AndrewJ on 9/18/2016AndrewJ would recommend this product to a friendEasy installation with included screws and holds the driver securely.
Better then Velcro By Joseph on 7/4/2016Joseph would recommend this product to a friendI love the Vortech driver mount better than Velcro. Over time the adhesive would not stay attached to my mounting board and the driver kept falling off the board. Now I do not worry about that problem with the driver mount. This simple mounting bracket works great.
Should be included By Ilene on 6/16/2016Ilene would recommend this product to a friendI had the generation one version of the VorTech pump which was easily mounted to my wood stand - it had a slot where it rested on a nail. When I updated to the wireless version, it came with velcro tape. One side stayed stuck to my wood stand, but it would never stay stuck to the plastic controller. Glue side got really tacky and melted from the heat and humidity in the room. Not very smart for a product for an aquarium. Every night I would find the controller dangling.
This mount should be automatically included but I guess those with metal stands might find velcro more appealing, but I don't know how it would stay due to it not sticking on the controller side of unit. I am so happy to not have to keep trying to "restick" the controller everyday.
Oh by the way, the pump inside the tank itself is awesome!
huge improvement over velcro By bfrnech on 5/31/2016bfrnech would recommend this product to a friendThis product is a huge improvement over the velcro that comes with the vortechs. It works exactly as expected and securely holds the unit. No offense to BRS as they likely aren't setting the price on this, but for what amounts to a few screws and a bracket the $12 a piece thing is a bit high. That being said, a definite plus and I guess the price was worth me not having to engineer something.
Works Great! By Mark on 5/10/2016Mark would recommend this product to a friendWorks great. Purchased 3 of these for 2 VorTech pumps and the Vectra M1 that I ordered at the same time. Note to others: The Vectra DOES come with the driver mount :)
YOU SHOULD JUST GET IT By Peter on 4/18/2016Peter would recommend this product to a friendWorks great in either upright or sideways orientation. So much better than the velcro that is included with the pump. Wish these were standard issue.
How long are the (included) screws?
The screws included with the mounts are 1/2" long. You can always pick up longer screws at the hardware store should these not fit your application. The holes in the mount are 4.5mm.
Hope this helps!
Will this bracket fit the older, non-quiet drive models?
Does it fit the Vectra too
This driver mount will work with the M1 and S1 drivers but not the L1.
Does the mount also fit the original white controller or is it only for the quiet drive.
What are the dimensions for this mount?
Have a great day!
