      I use this screw on my steadicam merlin.

      I bought my merlin used, and the seller had apparently lost the original mounting screw and had replaced it with a screw from the local hardware store. I figured it'd be worth attempting to go with something closer to the original equipment, so I purchased this screw. This screw from steadicam doesn't hold the camera in place any tighter than the generic screw I had been using, but I do like that its slot is large enough to allow it to be tightened using a coin.

      I use this with my Merlin steadycam for my Canon XH1 and it does the job okay. I slips off after much use and is one of the reasons I had to buy another one. I put plummers tape around it and it still slips a little but not as much.

      This screw is vital to anchoring a camera in a steadicam Merlin. It works as it should, is of high quality materials/machining and arrived promptly.

                        I misplaced this screw for my SteadiCam Merlin and figured I could use a typical household screw I had in my toolbox.....NOT!!!!! Because of the design, you are forced to use a flush/flathead screw so the mount for your receiver plate will adapt to your Merlin. I did however find the same screw at my local hardware store for $0.29 and I bought a dozen of them. The only downfall, the screw I bought was about .75mm to long and I had to cut them down and shave off the sharp edges. They work great now!!!!!

                            If you have a Merlin steadicam, you already know how important this little piece of magic is. Shipped quick too. It did arrive in a 11x17 envelope which i still don't understand but, very happy with this purchase.

                            The Stedicam Merlin (and we have the vest/arm upgrade) all comes down to this one screw. If you have it you are in business, if you don't you aren't. A team member turned in this rig missing the screw and a hunt around town at hardware suppliers was a bust...it has a shallow head that fits into the mounting plate and no one locally had a suitable screw. So while it seems pricey for a screw -- without it your expensive rig is screwed. Buy several to have spares!

                                This screw is amazing! It's so good in fact, I paid for two of them! The only downfall is they can easily be lost in the backseat of a rental car if it is around midnight and you are not careful. Be careful and take precautions.

                                        This screw is integral to the working of the Merlin. I would highly suggest you have two on hand. The one I bought originally with the steadicam wore-out after a year of moderate use. Tightening it with a screwdriver wears it out each time. Eventually you just strip it so that it can't be used any more because it won't tighten.

                                              I use this screw on my steadicam merlin.

                                              I bought my merlin used, and the seller had apparently lost the original mounting screw and had replaced it with a screw from the local hardware store. I figured it'd be worth attempting to go with something closer to the original equipment, so I purchased this screw. This screw from steadicam doesn't hold the camera in place any tighter than the generic screw I had been using, but I do like that its slot is large enough to allow it to be tightened using a coin.

                                              It is just the perfect screw - just like the one that we lost. Which we then found in the sink.[$]

                                              I use this with my Merlin steadycam for my Canon XH1 and it does the job okay. I slips off after much use and is one of the reasons I had to buy another one. I put plummers tape around it and it still slips a little but not as much.

                                                  [...]fits with the Steadicam Merlin. I had to buy one after I lost the original.
