    • You're not thinking hard enough…

Magic Arm

Magic arm

  • Mounts to a Super Clamp (via 1/4"-20 thread or 5/8" baby stud receptor) or any 1/4"-20 bolt
  • Rigid when locked, but imprecise

  • Can hold a lightweight camera, LCD monitor, LED light panel, umbrella mount bracket, etc.

DIY

  • Screw it to a wall, ceiling, 2x4, plywood, etc.
  • 5/8" baby stud holds lights, Super Clamp, umbrella mount bracket, etc.

Don'ts

  • Don't overload the clamps or the threads. Those 1/4"-20 bolts can break off. Fasten via 5/8" baby stud when possible.
  • Most of these devices should only be finger-tightened, not hand-tightened or wrenched.
  • A grip should be resourceful, but not cocky enough to take stupid risks with B) expensive camera equipment, but more importantly A) dangerously heavy or hot equipment that could fall and injure someone.
