To mount the antenna there are various solutions available on the market, but Vantage Point Products recommend the lightest strong mount made by Ventev, known as the Terrawave Universal Articulating Mount (TW-ART-MOUNTT). You may need an adapter to mount your chosen Antenna, for instance Ventev make an adapter plate for the AIR-ANT2566P4W-R.
