The CLEAR Advantage: High Security / High Visibility Partition Windows

by on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 12:35:00 PM


The reliable performance of the partition between the officer area and the prisoner area is critical. Any visibility hindrance can compromise the officers reaction time. Any failure to contain the prisoner in the rear zone can compromise the officer's safety and the safety of the general public. With these two issues in mind, Jotto Desk carefully designed the High Security/High Visibility Window to exceed the level of performance deserved and expected from a vehicle partition window on its already impressive Patented Space Creator Vehicle Partition offering (U.S. Patent No. 8,690,216.)

Jotto Desk HS/HV Window In-Vehicle ImageClear rear view and greater security from prisoner incidents the High Security/High Visibility
(HS/HV) Window Vehicle Partitions offer Officer safety and comfort.

A High Security/High Visibility (HS/HV) Window gives officers the best of both worlds - tremendous sight lines, whether looking out the rear view or turning around and also knowing that the prisoner can't attempt to escape through the window opening. The 4”H x 11”W window allows for communication or passing of information but there won’t be anyone that will squeeze through this opening. If a prisoner spits/bleeds/smears the window – it is still easily cleanable…not so with “expanded metal”.

The HS/HV window increases the visible area by a whopping 41% vs. older style windows. When someone sits in the drivers seat and looks through the rear view mirror for the first time, the natural reaction is to turn and look to see if a partition is installed…because the view is so clear.

Side by side partition comparison.Side by side, it is easy to see the advantage of our HS/HV window. An increase of 41% better visibility when
compared to traditional partition windows and also prevent “crawl-through” incidents by prisoners.

The Jotto Desk HS/HV Vehicle Partition is widely available for most late model public safety vehicle models. Please see the list below for more specific ordering information and to directly visit the individual product pages online.

New Heavy Duty Laptop Mounts From Jotto Desk

by on Friday, March 18, 2016 12:59:00 PM

Jotto Desk® is excited to introduce the NEW Heavy Duty (HD) line of computer laptop mounts. These HD Mounts offer the next level in ruggedness and durability…making this the premium solution for securing a laptop in a law enforcement or fleet vehicle. They feature a heavy duty vehicle specific mounting base, rugged pole/stand for height adjustment, swing arm for horizontal adjustment, a tilt/swivel plate and are capped off with our new A-MOD Desktop.

425-5630 with 450-4138.jpgHD Mount for 13+ Ford PI Sedan (425-5026) with A-MOD Desktop (450-4138)

The NEW HD Mount has been designed from the ground up with heavy duty fleets and less than ideal road conditions in mind. We realize many fleets are driving vehicles on roads that have seen better days or the driving conditions demand more – so Jotto Desk set out to create our Heavy Duty Solution. The vehicle specific base - made of 7 gauge steel – has been re-thought to incorporate multiple OEM mounting locations. All too often we have seen other products in the field that appear to be solid, yet they perform poorly. The cause could usually be tracked back to the base. Jotto Desk recognized the laptop at the top of the mount…can only be as strong as our base – so we emphasized this in our design. The height adjustable stand has not gone unchanged or ignored, as we have designed a 15” lower tube (2” OD with .218 wall thickness) to mate with the 6” upper rod (1.75” OD with an impressive 1.375 wall thickness) for excellent strength. The Swing Arm allows for simple adjustment of the laptop while secured to the A-MOD Desktop. The Swing Arm can rotate 90 degrees at the shoulder, the A-MOD Desktop can rotate 75 degrees at the wrist and Tilt/Swivel plate allows for a 25 degree adjustment. As is typical with all Jotto Desk mounts (traditional or HD) – we always provide you with everything you need with one simple part number…and this solution is no different.


The A-MOD Desktop (Adjustable-Mobile Operations Desktop) has been created to be the ultimate desktop solution to secure a laptop computer in a mobile environment. The A-MOD desktop features a lightweight, yet rugged design that incorporates both high strength aluminum and composite materials where it makes sense. All of the Side and Rear Clamps are made of case-hardened steel and the lock is a high security, solid brass tubular lock giving you peace of mind knowing that your laptop is secured. The laptop can quickly and easily be removed with the turn of a key and the pull of a handle.

The NEW HD Mount with the NEW A-MOD Desktop combine to provide superior ergonomics and a strong base.

NEW Adjustable Mobile Operations Desktop (A-MOD)

by on Monday, October 19, 2015 8:49:00 AM

Jotto Desk is extremely excited to announce two NEW Universal Desktops to the numerous markets we serve…the Adjustable Mobile Operations Desktop (A-MOD and A-MOD XL). We have worked closely with several key distributors and agencies to evaluate current needs, strengths and weaknesses. The culmination of this information was then utilized by our Engineering Department and implemented into these new A-MOD Desktops to create what we feel is the ultimate desktop solution to secure a laptop computer. The Jotto Desk team has worked to ensure that the products they introduce, to its' customers, stand up to the high demand for quality, durability and functionality. We are proud to offer these new desktop options.


NEW A-MOD Desktop (450-4143)

These A-MOD Desktops feature a lightweight yet rugged design that incorporates both high strength aluminum and composite materials where it makes sense. Conversely, we have mixed in steel where there is no substitute to the strength, structure and ruggedness that it provides. All of the Side Clamps and Rear Clamps, which hold down the laptop, are made of case-hardened steel and for our lock we chose a high security, solid brass tubular lock. There is no real security when a lock can simply be jimmied or the clamps can be easily bent out and the laptop stolen. With this mixture of elements and the other changes, we are confident that the A-MOD Desktops provide the most rugged, safest and most flexible universal desktop to secure a laptop computer in a mobile environment.

Jotto Desk's NEW A-MOD Desktop

Jotto Desk customers past, present and future will be able to enjoy the benefits of the A-MOD Desktops. Older Jotto Desk laptop mounts that utilized the ACD Desktop can be retrofitted with these new A-MOD desktops simply by ordering the part numbers listed below…kind of like putting a new engine in an older car. Present customers that are buying our laptop mounts with the old desktop can experience another level in security, convenience and adjustability with the A-MOD. Future customers that desired a locking mechanism, not offered on the old desktop, will now be able to evaluate the total Jotto Desk solution. The combination of our Laptop Mount price, ergonomics, quality and ease of installation with the New A-MOD Desktop make Jotto Desk the easy choice as your laptop mounting solution.
