This Universal Grip Bar from ikan is a standard component that's necessary for many ikan camera support rigs. The bar is 5.06" long and covered with foam for a comfortable grip. It's threaded on both ends with a 1/4"-20 threaded socket. The included D-ring can be used to mount the grip directly to ikan Elements components. The 1/4"-20 threaded stud can also mount any device with 1/4"-20 socket such as a camera, a light, a monitor, etc. You can also transform this grip into a remote pistol-grip for your shock-mounted microphone by adding a 3/8"-16 bushing (not included) or use the ikan Elements Cold Shoe Adapter (not included) for microphones with an integrated shoe mount.

Length 5.06" (12.85 cm)

      I love this thing! I walked all through many hiking trails using this grip on my rather heavy CANON EOS M camera with the 18-55mm zoom lens and the video was smooth looking. I also could hold it over my head and rotate using two hands to avoid seeing people in my shots. For taking self-portraits with my wife it was very ergonomic to hold the grip, and looked less obvious than holding the camera body. The grip absorbs moisture well since I have sweaty hands. The bottom is also threaded to allow a light or the included sturdy clip ring. I still need to get a heavy duty belt clip to hang it off of but the grip wins on all aspects of performance.

      It's a fairly inexpensive grip. Used it to hold my mirrorless camera for handheld videos. Does the trick. Quality of product isn't all that great but for the price it's ok. The foam grip feels cheap but still comfortable to hold. Problem with the grip is that the foam is not secured to the core so it will spin when tightening. Also when holding the grip with camera on an angle the weight of the camera could spin the core. Other than that I don't have any issues with it.

        Center Rod Moves in Grip Bar

            The looks and quality of this product is good, but if you have any weight like a camera on it, the center rod moves so the grip will turn 360 deg. I needed to glue the rod in to have any assurance that it will hold my device. I am telling you this because, I almost lost my camera and lens due to a surprise twist.PS I hope the glue will hold and I will NOT have anything expensive on the grip.

              This handle bar is lightweight and inexpensive, but still very well made, and is very useful for me. I can rig it under a small camcorder for smoother shots, and sometimes use it to hold a small LED light. Works great.

                Worth the money

                from Memphis, Tn

                Comments about ikan Universal Grip Bar:

                Pretty decent little handles... I bought two of these to use on my basic video rig with some 90 degree 15mm 1/4-20 clamps. Planning to only use them temporarily, I was expecting cheaper build (since they are advertised as accessory handles). Definitely not top notch, but I will probably use them longer than I expected. My only complaint, is the foam comes off pretty easily, but could easily be glued in place. In my case, that actually works out better because the rods fit in a 15mm clamp and may be useful later on. I would definitely recommend these guys, esp for the price.

                    I have a Nikon D800, which is a little on the heavy side. This is true whether I'm shooting still photos or creating a video. With respect to the latter activity, however, the grip bar is worth its weight in gold. It helps me to stabilize the camera, with little or no effort on my part, and to focus my attention on the subject that I'm filming.

                      This grip is nice but in my opinion overpriced. But it would seem most 15mm rig accessories are so maybe it's just me. I just wish they could find a cheaper way to make a small aluminum rod with a hole in it.

                          I bought this handle to use in a somewhat nonconventional manner. I needed an inexpensive, rear positioned "third leg" for a shoulder rig (in addition to the two front handles) that would alleviate weight on the shoulder pad when the rig was set down. It also keeps the pad from getting dirty when the rig has to be set on the floor or ground. I use the 1/4" 20 screw to attach it to a 15mm rail block at the back of the rig and it helps support about 20 lb. worth of camera and accessories with no problem. It's strong and the added weight is negligible. I may even use it as a handle one day.
