bought it to hold a small handheld VHF radio. Was unsure about the suction cup thing but saw a review about a similar product and gave this a go. Was really surprised how well it sucks to the side of my fiberglass center counsel. The box is the right size for a radio and it stays in a place. It made it so I can pick where the radio sits that is out of the way but convenient.

I bought this so I could conveniently place my handheld VHF radio near me on my sailboat. I'm tired of a blaring cockpit speaker. I wanted to be able to move the radio so this product seemed great. However, when using on the cockpit bulkhead on the first use, even cleaning the area prior to placing and allowing to completely dry, both my expensive ICOM VHF and the caddy fell and slid at a high rate of speed aft (we have an open transom) and almost overboard. Had my wife not been sitting in quarter seat it would have gone over. The radio floats but while still in the caddy who knows how the extra weight would affect it. I'm not testing it to find out.

          Comments about Communications Caddy:

          The holder suctions to any flat smooth surface. The only downside is that although wide enough, the interior depth is cut slightly by the intrusion of the suction cup nub. So my small VHF doesn't sit all the at the bottom of the cup. Otherwise it's durable and easy to move around if needed.
