Pedestal Guards

My pedestal has no guard and I'd like somewhere to mount an Ipad. Searching online it seems Edson and Navpod are the only two I can find. (edson ones are a little more $$ than I had expected. Are the Navpod straight guards just as good from anyones experience? Are they fairly simple to instal? (either of them)

https://navpod.com/product/sg125/

Thanks for any input!

Re: Pedestal Guards

We found a curved length of SS pipe and had a local outfit weld plates on the ends. We then bolted it to the seats on each side of the cockpit. It Keeps the sheets from fouling on the binnacle and serves as a rail for holding on to and for mounting displays.

Photos of above setup. The broad curve keeps lines clear of the binnacle and doesn't catch any on the guard either.

If you aren't in a hurry, look at consignment stores for used edson guards, they will be much cheaper than the navpod you have listed.
