My Necky Manitou 14 has this curious mount in front of the cockpit. Any idea what it is for?
It looks like one half of a locking camera mount. You could detach it and look for a manufacturers and or patent number on the bottom. Without the top half it’s difficult to say, but an image search turns up dozens of equipment mounts that are similar. It could also be half of a mount for something like a GPS, stopwatch, speedometer, etc.
It does look like one of the GoPro mounts. There are thousands of slightly different kinds of them, so matching something to it might be impossible. Replace it with a matched upper piece when you decide you want to put something there.
Demount put it on white background take picture and Google the picture.
