What exactly are the key differences between the microphone-style clip and the magnetic mount for the 4910LR?
L-Tron team member, Nate, weighs in on the pros of each style mount for the 4910LR DL Reader.
The NEW 4910LR Magnetic Mount
L-Tron is pleased to introduce the Magnetic Mount for the 4910LR Drivers License Reader. The Magnetic Mount was purpose-built from the voice of Law Enforcement. The mount can be used to keep the 4910LR scanner in a convenient, fixed location for consistent scanning. The magnetic mount optimizes the safety and efficiency of the (already helpful) 4910LR DL scanner. It quickly engages with the 4910LR and automatically self-centers – holding the scanner firmly in place. The magnetic mount is offered exclusively from L-Tron Corporation for $29.50.
“The new magnetic mount makes mounting the 4910LR DL scanner fast and easy anywhere in the patrol car. You can keep your eyes forward during traffic stops because the scanner will automatically lock into place whenever the scanner is near the mount. You no longer have to worry about getting the scanner clipped in just right to avoid it falling off on a quick stop or sharp turn.”
– Nate Leibensperger, L-Tron Team Member
Features of the 4910LR Magnetic Mount:

- Reduces distractions.
- Improves your safety.
- Purpose-built for rugged environments (aka your patrol car).
“Anybody that’s used these old mounts with the plastic knows that they can break off. Sometimes you’ll see the scanners in a cup holder, or sometimes they fall on the seat, & it’s not a good idea to have to go looking for it while you’re at a traffic stop. Having [the scanner] closer to you, and not able to move – those magnets are really strong – it makes me feel better at least”
– Officer Ed, New York State Police Officer

The standard 4910LR Microphone-style clip
The standard 4910LR Microphone-style clip features a protruding clip that the scanner uses to “snap” into place, similar to a mic-mount Overtime, this clip can snap off or wear down. This can result in your 4910LR DL scanner sitting in your cup holder, or knocking around the floor of your patrol car. This can create a safety issue in the event of a crash or if you are unable to locate your scanner at a traffic stop.
The magnetic mount was built from your voice. The microphone style clip comes standard with each 4910LR scanner, while the magnetic mount an add-on accessory and is only an additional $29.50.
