I have a Kamerar Led unit with a broken light stand mount. After fabricating an aluminum mount utilizing this stud. My light is back in service and better yet I don't have a $350.00 paperweight. There are a number of similar studs out there, but very few that are this short, and fewer yet with 3/8 inch threads.

I should buy these nuts and bolts by the dozen. You might need to use some fender washers to shorten up the length of the threads going into monitors or ball heads. Otherwise, take a belt sander to it and grind it down to three or four threads.

Mucho handy piece of gear.

This thing is so handy! I really like having a few of these in my kit. It's very solid and there are so many uses for this lil guy. I can throw it in a grip head for an extra baby pin or thread to anything 3/8 to have a baby pin just about anywhere I dang well please. I also love the safety pin holes. Better safe than dead pops used to say.

Totally Awesome!!!!!

I use these with my Westcott Scrim Jim Kits & Parts. The 1 Tubing has 3/8-16 Threads in the center of each piece. This Mathews Baby Pin threads into the 1 tubing perfectly!!! Mathews could not have made a better product.

Excellently Machined!

I bought 6 of these for use with my Westcott Scrim Jim Cine kits. The frames have a 3/8 threaded insert in the middle of each 4' piece and each 2' piece of the frame, and now I can screw this Baby Pin into them. These pins work best with the 4'x4' frames because the 3/8 threaded hole is in the middle of each side. With 6'x6' or 8'x8' frames I still use Cardellini End Jaw Clamps.

Does the 5/8" pins pins have the "Anti-Twist Knurling"? Or is it just "glossy and smooth" without this rough surface where the screw should be screwed into the pin?
