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.
