Matthews Minivator II Overview

The MINIVATOR II 142" Geared Stand from Matthews is a taller and stronger version of the MINIVATOR stand. It has a load capacity of 80 lb, and extends from 55" to 142".

A "Rocky Mountain" leg allows individual leveling adjustment to one leg, which is useful on uneven surfaces, making the MINIVATOR II ideal for location work. 4" casters can be purchased separately, making this versatile stand available for studio and stage use.

A durable, double-cable mechanism keeps both risers traveling at equal proportions with each turn of the handle, ensuring firm and steady movement of the light fixture. Thirty-eight turns of the handle will take the fixture to full height. A "Combo" dual-purpose top casting allows for use of both Junior pin and Baby receiver fixtures.

Does the crank mechanism lock automatically and stay in the position you set it, or do you have to manually lock it in place? And when you want to lower the crank is there any sort of safety mechanism in place to ensure it doesn't slip and come down too fast?
Asked by: Michael
The crank mechanism will stay in the position you set it at and how fast it comes down depends on how the amount of cranks you apply to the mechanism.
