Can you provide the part information for the knob that fastens the boom to a light stand?
Asked by: Odell
There are two methods of securing the Baby Boom to a stand. You can either insert the Junior Pin into a Junior Receiver, or you can mount onto a Baby Pin in which case you would fasten it using a T-Handle with a 5/16"-18 threading that is .88" in length. The Matthews part number for this T-Handle is 63302.

Do you think it would be possible to safely mount an Arri 650 to this guy? based off of the weight restrictions, and counterbalance formula it looked like id be able to safely get about 4 ft of extension. Which doesn't really get me much more then just a regular C stand arm. Would appreciate any thoughts, or recommendations.
Asked by: Crozet
Yes this would support it , make sure you counter weight it and sand bags

Can I remove the part that swivels and attaches to the light stand? I am just looking for a heavy duty extending pole
Asked by: Michael
You can certainly remove that casting but we also manufacture the Steady Rest PN:B386032 which is a 2 section riser with a range of 28” to 70” with the ability to support a 90lbs load. It is also around half the price of the boom.
