An isolation mounting device or assembly is used to mount items or components to a structure in an environment susceptible to vibrational energy, such as a vehicle. The isolation mounting device includes a damping portion, such as a piece of elastomeric damping material, bonded to the surface of the structure to isolate the mounting device and the component from vibrational energy transmitted through the structure. A support base, such as an aluminum block, is bonded to the damping portion to support the component. A fastener engaging portion is fixed to and extends from the support base to engage a fastener that secures the component to the support base. For example, an assembly can be crimped into an aperture formed in the support base so that an internally threaded snap nut post extends through the component and receives a bolt that secures the component to the support base. The component is then easily and removably mounted to the structure without enhancing the transmission of vibration.
