    This is some random pic, so hopefully this helps. In the lower right hand corner you can see the yellow circle. That's where I had the small d ring installed. The screw and hole were hidden behind the sunglass holder. I'll still look for pics when I get home but hopefully this helps.

    You have an FJ case? Is that why the 4x4 switch?

    My bad, thought it was a random pic of your truck, not specific to the screw you were talking about

    You do - that's why I have the 4ft stored under my back seats. Put that thing in when I'm actually using it...

    Thanks for sharing. Not a bad spot. Why did you do this instead of just dangling off the rear view mirror?

    How does the handheld attach to this?

    The only way I could think of to attach it to the mirror is by typing some paracord around the mirror base, than clipping it to that rope. This looks better IMO.

    It's a noose type string that loops around the circle on the back of the hand set.

    You won't be disappointed! I just got home from work and am going to see if I can find some pics of my old set up.

    Nope! And if you need to, you can choke up on the string so it's shorter. In those pics it's the longest it can be.

    I wonder if you can just clip it directly to the visor hinge?
