Technical Information:


Possibly the finest chair mount system available today for computer interface, the CommandCon system represents nearly 12 years of continuous development and refinement and has a host of features so unique that 17 design points are protected by a U.S. Patent (U.S. Patent number 6,702,373). The most interesting feature of this system is the unique, modular “rail mount” design with integral clamp. This feature allows computer devices to be mounted to the system in seconds and adjusted easily, anywhere on the rails. Once the thumbscrew is locked in place, the device is rigid and will not sag or flop around, yet can be easily adjusted, in seconds, with no tools. In fact, once installed (usually using only a phillips screwdriver) the user never needs a tool to adjust any part of the system.

Another unique (patented) feature is the vertically pivoting keyboard mount rail. Called a "crossrail", this rail allows for a keyboard, lighting system, racing wheel or any other device (or combination of devices) to mount in front of the user. The crossrail swings vertically up to allow easy access.

All components in the system are ambidextrous and can be mounted on either side to allow for walls or other obstructions.

There is even an optional 'counterbalance system' that attaches to the keyboard crossrail to neutralize the weight of heavy devices, such as multiple keyboards, large racing wheels, flight yokes or laptop computers. This system uses an adjustable-tension device lets you set the amount of force exerted. When properly adjusted, the weight of the crossrail will be totally compensated and the crossrail will lift and lower with the push of a finger!


Chair Mounts:

A patented clamp mounting system that will clamp around the arms of most standard designs of office chairs. This clamp will work with most "Square Armstyle chairs as well as chairs that use a "Single Post"  design. NOTE: I now have a mount available for the "C" style arm chair (such as this example picture) as well . With the addition of this mount all my systems are now compatable with nearly every style of office-type chair. It has also been successfully installed on many 'non-standard' style of chair arms.  Check out the "Photo Gallery" section for some examples. I am the only manufacturer of a game chair that can legally (patent protected) offer a clamp-on mount and my mount is highly successful in it's function. Once installed, the clamp and mount plate arrangement makes a very solid mounting surface as a base for all devices. I have been making this same mount system for over  14 years and have never had one fail to perform.

NOTE: The mount plates (large white bases that support the rails) are also very versatile for custom mounting, such as to solid chair arms. With a little imagination, you can mount this system to almost anything, including wheelchairs, automotive doors, roll around carts, even slide rails under a desk.   

A brief note on mounting devices:

      One thing that is important to remember about this system is that almost any mount can be placed on any rail, in many different locations and positions. They can also be moved around into many different configurations in just a few seconds, without tools. Just because a component is designed for a single purpose does not mean that it cannot be used for another purpose. Rear speaker mounts could be used as, say, front speaker mounts as well. A joystick Deck Block can be used on the top or bottom rail and even on the keyboard cross-rail. The polymer material used for the mounts - although strong and resilient, is easily drilled, tapped and can be glued or painted. They also glow when lighted from within or below! Use you imagination!


Modern polymer plastics:

The polymer material used  in my system is a food-grade industrial plastic that is widely used in manufacturing. Called High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), and Polyurethane they are widely preferred over steel in many of today's industries; automotive, aviation, aerospace and industrial manufacturing, just to name a few. It is strong, resilient and lightweight. In fact, it is lighter than aluminum and far lighter than steel. In our application, lighter weight means that the system will not easily make a chair top-heavy... a possibly dangerous condition.

        More importantly than weight, it also has a very good "memory" - meaning that it retains and returns to its original shape after being deformed. Because of this ability it performs exceptionally well as a friction-point (such as a pivot or clamp) with virtually no wearing or damage. Aluminum and steels commonly used for this application can be permanently deformed by a small amount every time it is adjusted. These kinds of applications can also cause metals to  wear faster than polymer - metal on metal contact is well known to cause accelerated wear, especially when rubbed or pressed against each other with force (as in a pivot or clamp).  If over stressed (such as an over tightened bolt), the polymer material will 'give' slightly and reform to its original shape... steel and aluminum will bend and not fully return to its original shape and position. This condition is aggravated by stresses caused from use and readjustment. Metal also is subject to fatigue... cracking or weakening around holes and joints. Again, polymer does not suffer from this malady. The eventual result of this? Metal parts will, by their very nature, wear at the pivots and clamps causing the mounts to eventually lose their ability to grip, allowing them to slip and sag - slippage.

        Finally, because of its inherent natural memory, the polymer mounts work like a 'friction clamp', holding pressure against the mounting screws, allowing them to be hand-tightened while at the same time preventing them from loosening up over time. Metal to metal clamps and pivot surfaces require locking nuts and washers that need tools to tighten and loosen.  Anyone who has ever had a metal shelf or swing set has most likely seen this problem. Polymer can also be threaded, shaped, painted and is much easier to work with than metal.

        What this means is that in this application, polymer will outlast and outperform steel and aluminum and do it with less weight! Years of experimentation and development have proven this to me over and over again. I've tried them all over the years, including many of the designs my competitors now offer. Many other systems that are made of steel will wear far faster than mine and require tools to assemble, adjust and maintain. Even screws threaded into a metal part can 'strip' threads and ruin the component. Once more polymer is superior by being much more 'forgiving' of incorrect threading and can even be rethreaded without a threading tap! Try doing that with metal.

         So in many ways polymer is superior to metal for this use and will give its owner years of trouble free, reliable use. All of my original systems, made in the mid 1990's, are still in use and work as well now as they did when new!

      We build them with pride and we build them to last. We are the best.
