AtlasIED QR-2 Microphone Stand Base Quick Release System (Black)

AtlasIED QR-2 Microphone Stand Base Quick Release System (Black)
Key Features
  • Quick Release from Base
  • Ball Bearing Interconnect
  • 7/8" Thread
  • Black
The Atlas QR-2 Microphone Stand Base Quick Release System installs between the 7/8" threaded microphone stand tube and round base. The system is intended to provide quick installation and breakdown of microphone stands, by allowing the technician to simply insert the tube into the base.

The ball bearing interconnect system provides a sturdy, secure fit. Technicians must step on the outer ring of the quick release in order to detach the tube from the base; this will also avoid inadvertent detachment during performances. The QR-2 is an ideal solution for touring situations, stage performances, theaters, and is completely compatible with the Atlas MS-10C, MS-10CE, MS-12C and MS microphone stands.

I have read the two reviews of this item. It appears they the threading is of a very close tolerance. As far as I'm concerned that is a good attribute. My question concerns the locking mechanism itself; i.e., part A tolerance to part B. If you have already bought this and have had it in service for some while, I'm asking if the joint is solid and without any free play of tolerance. Yes, I have an Atlas MS20C. It would be much nicer to have a quick connect between the shaft and base because as we all know, it is typical to separate the two pieces during transport. Also, I'm know from experience that hasty and often assembly / disassembly of the base from the shaft invites the risk of stripping threads. On paper, this device looks very useful and I would definitely buy it if I only knew that it has a very solid fit between the halves with no wobble at all. Thank you very much.

Atlas as you well know makes excellent products. I cannot guarantee the QR-2 will not have some play to it. As the connection is not a thread its ball bearing.
