The 9.7', black 40" Riser C-Stand Turtle Base Kit from Kupo is outfitted with a patented spring ring locking system that removes all tension from the legs so that gravity can do the work for you. A "turtle base" is an industry term where the riser section can be quickly removed from the base for easy transportation and the base can be used with a stand adapter for a low mounting position.The 40" Grip Arm with Hex Stud is a 2 1/2" grip head mounted on the end of a 40" piece of steel tubing 5/8" (16 mm) in diameter and finished with a faceted hex stud to keep lighting fixtures in position when they are placed on the end of the arm. The 2-1/2" grip head consists of a pair of rotating aluminum discs attached to a 5/8" (16 mm) receiver. The discs have four different sized "V" shaped jaws to accept any accessory with a 5/8", 1/2", 3/8" or 1/4" mounting stud or tubing. The "V" shaped jaws have "teeth" that grab whatever is mounted between the plates securely. The 2-1/2" grip head features an oversized ergonomic "T" handle and dedicated roller bearings designed for maximum torque. This kit also includes a 2.5" grip head and a 40" grip arm with hex stud.

The 2-1/2" grip head consists of a pair of rotating aluminum discs attached to a 5/8" (16 mm) receiver. The discs have 4 different sized V-shaped jaws to accept any accessory with a 5/8, 1/2, 3/8, or 1/4" mounting stud or tubing.

At the end of the 40" grip arm, you will find a baby hex-pin with 6 milled flat surfaces.
You can mount your light fixtures or accessories on the end of your grip arm like a mini boom. They won't rotate due to the set-screw of that fixture or accessory, locking onto one of the sides of the hex-pin. The grip head uses a non-slip aluminum friction disc that maintains its durability over time, offering the user positive locking strength and precise control. The grip head is constructed around a solid steel central bolt with a fixed solid pin to secure it to the aluminum casting for increased strength and durability.
