Double socket arm works great!
The entire line of RAM Mounts products revolutionized this micro industry. Where other products are, for the most part, flimsy, unreliable, and not bult to perform on motorcycles or other harsh applications, the RAM Mounts line performs beautifully. This double socket arm is one piece that connects a ball mount at the base to a ball mount connector which holds the device (in this case a phone). There are many (many) options in connecting these parts together, so take your time and think through what it is that you are trying to accomplish.

Limited Travel makes reduces its usefulness
If you'll look at the picture on the top and bottom there are notches which allows the mount to swivel about the ball joint. However, there are just two notches on top and bottom and they both face the same direction. So swiveling your device around so that it is in a good position is very limited. In fact, if you're using the setup that I have with the "RAM Mounts Universal Cell Phone Holder" your only option is to tilt it forward or backwards. You cannot tilt it left and right at all because the notches are the wrong direction. If you twist the mount to have the notches the correct direction, then you cannot tilt the "RAM Mounts Universal Cell Phone Holder" in a direction to allow you to see the device.

Very frustrating. It does lift the phone up high enough off the handle bars to fit, and does have the limited amount of travel. So it is still useful and recommended. But it isn't as good as I was hoping for.

Works perfectly with RAM mount handlebar mount
Purchased to go with the RAM mount handlebar mount and the finger grip phone holder on a 2006 Ducati monster s4r and it does it's job perfectly, tightens securely and i've gotten no spin or looseness even at speeds above 80.

Works well does what its intended for.
I bought this arm as part of the complete Ram Mounts kit *Grip, Mounting kit, Double Socket arm*. Its a pretty stout little piece. \
My only complaint is that you have to buy all the pieces separately but other than that Ram Mounts are awesome and I would purchase again when/if I need it.

Bought the small arm
Ram mounts are used and abused at my work everyday. They do not fail.
Difference to note:
The small does not contain the spring to hold the two halves apart when loosening. Makes it slightly harder and may require two hands to prevent the arm falling off when removing attachments. Not a problem though. I might buy the medium to give the extra length although small i'd assume is sturdier.

3 different lengths
This product comes in 3 different lengths. I have the small and the medium. Between the two sizes, it keeps the phone away from the gauges depending on which length I use. The largest one would be too big for my bikes.

This, and the clutch/brake mount kit, combined with the universal gripper cellphone mount, put my phone right next to my left hand on the controls, so I can use it as a GPS without it being distracting. Comes off quickly to be stashed in the luggage, too.

need it for my ram mount
CBR4LIFE on Apr 24, 2016
These were used to mount my iPhone 6 to my R6. Still experimenting in finding a good spot to put the mount. I tried bolting the mounting ball in one of the wing mirror mounting bolts which worked but it just about covers the entire speedo/cluster. I have a Scott steering damper installed as well, so moving it into that position should also be a bit tricky but doable.
In case anyone is concerned with the sturdiness of these mounts. They're rock solid and I have no fear of my phone falling out.

So this is to connect two 1 inch balls? one on the handle bar and then on that holds my iPhone?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This item is the linkage between the mount on your handle bar and any Ram accessory. To hold my phone I use the X-Mount. Both Ram mounts and accessories have 1 inch balls standard.
Will it fit on a 1 inch ball?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Made for one inch ball.
