A staple of the film and video industry, the 5.7', silver 20" Master C-Stand Turtle Base Kit from Kupo is comprised of a two-section double riser with a removable base, 20" grip arm, and a 2.5" grip head; almost everything you need to position your lighting and grip equipment where you need it on set.

Kupo Master C-Stand with Turtle Base (20", Silver)

The Master C-Stand with Turtle Base from Kupo is a 20" Century Stand designed to support light fixtures and modifiers weighing up to 22 lb. Additionally, the stand has been given a silver finish achieved by applying a chrome plating to the metal frame.

Constructed with both strength and capability in mind, the Master C-Stand features three sections—two of which are extendable—which bring the stand's maximum height to 68.1". At its lowest, the stand collapses down to just 36.8", and is capable of supporting up to 22 lb at either height.

The stand's base is made up of a traditional three-leg configuration with each leg set at a different height to allow for stand "nesting" on set. Of the three legs, two feature a spring-loaded design which rapidly extends and locks them into place, while the third may be height-adjusted via a locking knob on the riser's main section. In order to improve strength, the base has been cast from durable zinc alloy, making it five times stronger than traditional aluminum designs. The locking collars have also been cast from aluminum in order to prevent damage and maintain longevity.

Kupo 20'' Hex Grip Arm (Silver)

Often paired with a C-Stand, the silver 20" Hex Grip Arm from Kupo has a 5/8" hex pin at one end of a 20" textured, non-slip steel tube and a 2-1/2" grip head at the other. The hex pin has 6 milled flat surfaces so that you can attach a light to it without it turning and use the arm like a mini boom. The grip head has a pair of rotating discs attached to a 5/8" receiver. The discs have 4 V-shaped jaws to accept 5/8", 1/2", 3/8" or 1/4" accessories like flags, scrims or even another grip arm. The jaws are locked down by an oversized, ergonomic T-handle.

Kupo 2-1/2" Grip Head With Big Handle (Chrome-Plated Finish)

The 2-1/2" Grip Head With Big Handle from Kupo has four V-shaped jaws, an ergonomic oversized T-shaped handle with dedicated roller bearings for maximum torque, and a non-slip aluminum friction disc. This durable grip head is made of aluminum and steel and has a chrome-plated finish.
