Over this summer the heat build up within my car has caused my PDA holder to steadily open up, resulting in one or two worrying dives from my Ipaq.



The holder is the one supplied with the TomTom kit and has two sprung side arms. The back of the holder is easy to remove being held on by five posi-drive screws. I opened the holder and made two simple modifications, which so far have worked.



Firstly I took the "brake blocks" out by unscrewing the brake wheel. I used the point of a sharp knife to add some tread marks into the brake block surface by just pushing the knife in to form small edges.



Secondly I increased the force of the brake spring (the one at the end of the release button) by glueing a small (about 4mm cube) piece of wood into the release button spring channel.
