  • Single DIN mounting holes

    I am trying to make a generic single DIN mounting adaptor for my car. I know the DIN size is 7"x2", but does anyone know where the locations of the various mounting holes / screw holes should be so that any single DIN device can be used?

    that's kinda a trick question, pretty much every auto maker uses a different set of locations for mounting. best bet is to get good measurements of what you have.

      More info would be helpful... what are you mounting? What vehicle? Are you making a custom single DIN kit for something that doesn't already have one? Just trying to figure out your question... its kinda vague.

      TTYL!

        I am making a single din converter that will fit in my glove compartment. I am planning on mass producing them so I want it to be compatible with any aftermarket mp3 / DVD player. This will be for a device in addition to the stock radio. It is meant to be used in conjunction with a xenarc screen for DVD players mostly.

        It will look something like this. I made this just for my USB sound card, but I want to do the same thing, but for Single DIN devices.

        What I want is the positions of the centers of the ISO mounting holes relative to the front and bottom of the device and thier diameters.

        If anyone has an single DIN device laying around with these kinds of holes in it and would be so kind to measure them, I would be most appreciative.

        i.e. the locations of the 5 "ISO" holes shown in this picture:

          ummmm since you will be doing this mass production thing and have aparently done lot's of research, you should have a set of calipers laying around to measure the holes with dont you?

              Hmm- I'm not sure if those side mounting holes are standard or not but I've seen a couple ISO mounting cages that used bendable tabs in several locations for mounting. They work very well and fits all vehicles because of the numberous tabs you can bend down.

                If I had access to a single DIN device, them my problem would be solved. I do not, but thanks for pointing out the obvious.

                I purchased a DVD player to prototype with already that I'm already going to sell cause I have no other use for it, but alas it turns out it's not a standard single DIN w/ ISO mounting holes and I would really like to avoid putting more money into this project then its already taking. I will be putting mounting holes in the mounting for this DVD player since its only 6" deep and fits very nicely and looks real cool, which is the reason I went with this model, didn't realize it wasnt standardized then though.

                  Do you have any pictures or links to such things?

                      Those side holes are stock Toyota mounting holes. They are standard and can be found on almost every aftermarket radio. I do not have the figures to tell you the exact sizing, but you could hit Walmart, buy a cheap stereo, measure and return it.
                      Take my advice: Do not try to build a system that includes EVERY feature. Start with the basics, build it to a bug free state, and THEN add on.

                        Looking at one of my pioneer units, sitting on a shelf above my desk :

                        It has only 3 holes in the same place as the five you indicate (working from the left in your diagram) it has 2,3 and 4.

                        3. and 4. are dead centre height wise (1" or 25mm from bottom)

                        2. is 1 7/16" or 35mm from bottom

                        Now from the front it is difficult. the pioneer fits into a cage. At the front there are two small lugs which stop the cage going forward (or the stereo back)

                        from this the holes are:

                        2. 7/8" or 22.5 mm
                        3. 1 1/8" or 29 mm
                        4. 3 1/4" or 83 mm


                        Hope this is of some help.



                        *note I have another stereo (Ford) sitting around somewhere, when I find taht I will measure that too.

                          These are pictures from a Pioneer DEH-1600. The vehicles that use an ISO mount are all a little different that's why there are a few holes. If I get a vehicle in today that uses factory ISO brackets I'll take a picture to show you some more examples. Note that where I have the tape measure lined up isn't where you would normally line the deck up to the factory. It is just for reference. The front of the factory radio will usually line up with the front of the aftermarket deck when it's face is off. P.S. A Ford radio doesn't have ISO holes.

                              dammit! the festive foodstuff baked in a pastry shell is right, the ford stereo has no ISO holes.
