Doesn't match the Nato spacing on their own handle

By Joe

WC's NATO rails are pricey but well built. What quality metal pieces aren't absurdly expensive in the cinematography world anyway. The bigger drawback, and one that might help others make decisions, is that this appears that it might fit same spacing as WC's own cheese handle, but it doesn't. And maybe that's not possible, since the spacing is pretty close on the handle. I had just hoped the set screw might fit in the rear so that it could lock into a hole that lined up but it doesn't. Stopping twisting was important for me as I put it on the side of my handle for the monitor. For my use I cranked the set screw into the handle. Using my Titan arm for leverage I tested it. It moved, so I cranked it tighter and it held. Longterm I'm not sure how well it'll hold, especially during our summer. I'll probably put some threadlocker on it so I can be more confident in it. If you're using this in a way where twisting is less important, you'll be set. It'd be great if it were just a little larger to match two of the 3/8s on the handle. Or perhaps one of the screws retaining the safeties, which are perfectly centered over the next 3/8 holes—could be replaced with a screw that has a larger head to lock into that 3/8 hole?

I use these with Noga arms for quick release and repositioning. They're super handy and reliable.

Lock 'n Load

I purchased the Wooden Camera NATO Lock Kit to help mount a smallHD 501 monitor/Sidefinder HD on my SONY FS-100 rig. The NATO quick release lock is mounted on the 1/4-20 end of a Bright Tangerine Titan-11 arm which then clamps to the NATO rail mounted on the smallHD Sidefinder. Very solid set up. Appreciate having the quick release function. Anything that makes my set-up and tear-down easier is well worth the price. I used to custom build Harley choppers back in the day so I appreciate quality machining and craftsmanship. This is definitely a case of getting what you pay for. Yes you could buy cheaper, but you'll likely end up spending more in the long run when a cheaper unit fails and you decide to do it right. Wooden Camera has stellar customer service and they always respond quickly to my inquiries. Very professional and very deserving of your business.

I have an F55. I love these. I stumbled across this page while buying my third set. I had Cine-Locks (by16x9 Inc) for years. They would often stick. These are a great improvement. All of my camera rigging is by Arri, Wooden Camera and Vocas. I recommend all three.
