A non-linear mount is described having a capability of protecting against severe shocks and also giving isolation from very low vibration levels. This is achieved by two stiff mounts of different characteristics acting in series with each other, between which the file is suspended. One mount includes clamping grommets to accommodate sway, and the other mount surrounds a low friction rod allowing the grommets to act. Total movement of the file is controlled by the clearance between two stops and the other mount.
