The 2.96m, silver 101.6cm Riser C-Stand Turtle Base Kit from Kupo is outfitted with a patented spring ring locking system that removes all tension from the legs so that gravity can do the work for you. A "turtle base" is an industry term where the riser section can be quickly removed from the base for easy transportation and the base can be used with a stand adapter for a low mounting position.
The silver, 2.96m Master C-Stand with Turtle Base from Kupo is used for mounting lighting equipment and a variety of light-shaping tools and accessories.
The C-Stand is a steel support with two risers and three sections that fully extend to a height of 2.96m. One great feature is the "turtle" base that detaches completely from the riser, allowing you to mount a light to it. The base has the classic wide, stable "C"-type legs that accommodate easy sandbagging and straddling of obstacles, folding flat for easy transport and storage. The detached riser can be used like a "trombone" or telescoping arm with the addition of the appropriate clamp or accessory. This 101.6cm C-Stand features a 5/8" Baby Stud and patented ring-locking system that enables fast setup and breakdown.
The 2-1/2" Grip Head With Big Handle from Kupo has four V-shaped jaws, an ergonomic oversized T-shaped handle with dedicated roller bearings for maximum torque, and a non-slip aluminium friction disc. This durable grip head is made of aluminium and steel and has a chrome-plated finish.
With a black powder-coated finish, the Kupo 101.6cm Hex Grip Arm with Big Handle has a 2-1/2" grip head mounted on the end of a 101.6cm piece of steel tubing, which is 5/8" (16mm) in diameter. The surface of the tubing is machined to create a rough texture to ensure a non-slippery surface. The 2-1/2" grip head consists of a pair of rotating aluminium discs attached to a 5/8" (16 mm) receiver. The discs have 4 different sized V-shaped jaws to accept any accessory with a 5/8, 1/2, 3/8, or 1/4" mounting stud or tubing.
The V-shaped jaws feature teeth that securely grab whatever is mounted between the plates securely. The 2-1/2" grip head features an oversized ergonomic T-handle and dedicated roller bearings designed for maximum torque. At the end of the 101.6cm grip arm, you will find a baby hex-pin with 6 milled flat surfaces.
You can mount your light fixtures or accessories on the end of your grip arm like a mini boom. They won't rotate due to the set-screw of that fixture or accessory, locking onto one of the sides of the hex-pin. The grip head uses a non-slip aluminium friction disc that maintains its durability over time, offering the user positive locking strength and precise control. The grip head is constructed around a solid steel central bolt with a fixed solid pin to secure it to the aluminium casting for increased strength and durability.
