Use the RigMount XL Camera Mounting Platform with Sidecar and Hostess Tray from RigWheels to mount your camera on the metal or glass side of a car, boat, or moving vehicle. The mount consists of two RigPlate cheese-style platforms, sixteen magnetic mounts, eight A-Cup suction mounts, six rig-mounting axles, and all the required connection hardware. The durable metal platform provides stability and weight distribution for large-format cameras, and the provided components are designed to mount on the side of a car or moving vehicle.
At the center of the mount are two versatile RigPlates, each providing ten 1/4"-20 and five 3/8"-16 threaded holes in addition to four 5/16" and five 3/8" pass-through holes for mounting your camera and accessories. The six axles connect to the plates with thumbscrews and can be adjusted in any configuration to balance your camera. The sixteen magnets and eight suction mounts can be used separately or intermixed to create a solid connection with the metal surface. The magnets have a thin, rubber coating to protect the surface and provide up to 50 pounds of vertical pull resistance for a secure bond.
Since the mounting kit components are modular, they can be used in various ways such as a hi-hat mount configuration, or more components can be purchased such as additional magnets for attaching to a glass surface, wheels, and dolly rails. All the hardware required for attaching the mount components is included.
RigWheels RP01 RigPlate
The RigWheels RP01 RigPlate serves as a resourceful component of the camera mounting hardware. Its first function is to serve as a mounting plate for attaching RigWheels. The RigPlate and 1 set of RigWheels (sold separately) provide with smooth movement as a tabletop / skater dolly that can be used on any smooth or hard surface.
Using the RigPlate as a pipe dolly gives a scalable slider / dolly option for the new generation of mid-size and compact cameras. Attaching 2 RigPlates together creates a captive-rail camera carriage that allows secure camera movement at any angle. Using the RigPlate in conjunction with RigAxels (sold separately) adds even more capability to this simple system with a more traditional tabletop dolly setup and a robust pipe-dolly option.
The RigPlate is a camera support platform and can be used for much more than camera movement. A variety of several different mounting points allow you to attach a myriad of accessories. There are ten 1/4-20 and five 3/8-16 threaded holes (industry standard sizes) in addition to four 5/16" and five 3/8" pass-through holes.
The RigPlate can be turned into a rock-solid suction mount by adding the A-Cups or B- Cups (sold separately).
RigWheels RA01 1-RigAxle
The RigWheels RA01 1-RigAxle is designed to be used in conjunction with the RigPlate (sold separately). It allows for several different additional configurations that provide with even more options for getting smooth camera movement with the RigWheels system (sold separately).
With the custom inline wheels (sold separately) attached to the ends, you can use the RigAxle to convert the RigPlate (sold separately) into a more robust tabletop dolly with a larger footprint. This is a suitable solution for larger camera setups. Moreover, you can pivot the RigAxle to get curved dolly moves. If used with both RigPlate and RigWheels, it adds a bottom bar to make a captive rail pipe slider.
The RigAxle and RigPlate can be used together with the RailRunner configuration. Four 1/4"-20 holes allow for easy attachment of the RigMount (sold separately) and A-Cups (sold separately). In this configuration, the RigAxle can serve as mounting points for the camera gear as well as stabilization outriggers when using the RigPlate as a camera mount.
RigWheels Rig Mount Magnetic Mount Long (Single)
Designed as a magnetic alternative to a suction cup for the RigWheels RigPlate, this long stud version of the RigWheels RigMount provides the advantage of reduced vibration and immunity to extreme temperatures. Made of earth magnets and featuring a rubber coating to protect your mounting surface, it securely and safely attaches to metal surfaces and supports payloads up to 50 lb (in a vertical pull).
Four or more are recommended to be used with the RigPlate at the same time to provide the security of balance. The RigPlate is sold separately.
RigWheels A-Cups (4-Pack)
The 4-pack of RigWheels A-Cups includes four industrial grade camera suction mounts with industry standard 1/4"-20 studs that screw directly into the optional RigPlate or RigAxels. Of the three different versions of suction cups that RigWheels offers, the A-Cups are the most general purpose and most cost effective model.
