This is a steel replacement for the poor plastic original Binnacle Mount that is split or broken in many Landrovers. Powder coated in satin black to match its surroundings. This component supports the Binnacle which holds the speedometer, gauges and the heater controls in a Defender.

This part has been produced by Raptor due to constant requests from Defender owners for us to manufacture a replacement for their broken one.  When we took this part out of our Defender, we were surprised to find how weak the original part is. On removal one of the tabs that hold the Binnacle in place was already broken off and when testing the strength of the remaining tab we were able to break it off between finger and thumb.

Our Binnacle Mount is suitable for both RHD and LHD vehicles

    Great product relatively easy to fit without removing wiring from the gauges. 8mm ratchet ring spanner was a godsend. I’ve now replaced the binnacle and mount with Raptor and the whole thing is now bombproof.
    Only improvement would be to come with new screws bolst and u-clips.
    Well done Raptor.

    Fitted this today along with a raptor binnacle, excellent build quality and finish, easy direct replacement for original part, would like to point out that when fitting the binnacle mount you are best loosely fitting the rearmost two fixings first, followed by the front two before pinching up all four fixtures. would certainly recommend this product and will be fitting another to my partners vehicle.

    I bought one of your Raptor binnacle mounts in autumn and handed the job over to my local independent Landrover workshop.

    When I collected the Landy his actual words were “I don’t know what you paid for it but it was worth every bloody penny.”

    Fitting praise from a lifelong Landrover fan and fixer and testament to a superb product that’s a perfectly designed and crafted product that’s the ideal solution to combating a common Landrover problem.

    Well done! to all concerned at Raptor and long may you carry on innovative creations for Landrover .

    Great replacement part for my TD5, as others have said, it works, it fits, it looks good and is much sturdier than the original. Also especially good customer service from Raptor, they will know what I mean !

    A fantastic product. It is well made – no sharp edges, powder coated and the stainless steel allen key fittings are excellent. It fitted in 1st time round – no messing about. I wonder why Landrover didn’t think of this in the 1st place. Well done Proctor. 5 Stars out of 5 Stars!

    Very well made and simple to fit. Massive improvement over the original which had already split and just fell apart when removed. Excellent product.

    Easy to order, quick delivery, quality product, well made, nicely finished. Managed to install the binnacle mount without having to disconnect any of the wiring or clocks – a bit fiddly but that’s down to my lack of expertise and not Raptor Engineering’s excellent product. Will gladly recommend this product to replace the original (flimsy plastic) binnacle mount which practically disintegrated when removed.

    Just received my binnacle today. In common with everyone else, I’d just like to say thanks for a great product – very well made and fitted in less than an hour – what a difference (the old part was literally falling to bits!). The dash binnacle, especially now that it’s been fitted in conjunction with a new instrument panel, has cured a lot of my dashboard rattles and the whole assembly now feels really solid. Thanks again for a first class component!

    A great bit of kit and well thought out, nice touch with the pivoting lug holes and the alan key (enclosed) to adjust position, shipping was super fast. Will not hesitate to recommend and may well come back again at a later date. Well done guys and girls you really are the Mutts Nuts

    This what Landrover should have put into the Defender in the first place. Easy to fit and now the heater and vent controls can be used without feeling like they are going to fall off!

    Man that looks like the one Safari HP has been selling for years. Great copy guys. Comment from Raptor. It will be the same, if it was not the same it wouldnt fit would it. Its a copy of the plastic one that has been fitted to the Landrover for years. It actualy says its a copy of the original on our web site. I didnt know Safari HP existed. Good thing we didnt copy the price.!!

    Great product. Fits well with a quality looking finish. My only question is when will you be able to produce a metal gauge binnacle as my plastic one has also snapped like the original binnacle mount?!
