Can this be used in reverse? As in, using it to attach to a lighting grid when you need to bring lights closer to the ground when hung from a lighting grid
Asked by: Shane
Yes you can use this in reverse. It is always important to use a safety cable when you are rigging overhead and you would need to use a safety on it as well as the light.

question

I am looking for something like this but with a baby plate to mount to the ceiling instead of mounting two parts with a separate baby plate. Do you sell any telescopic extensions with baby plate?
Asked by: Ken
If looking to bolt the plate into the ceiling, you may only do so by using a separate baby plate like the Matthews Baby Plate - 3 B&H # MABP3 with this extension.

How much weight could this hold if i decide to use this as a boom arm?
Asked by: Justin
This extension is not recommended for use as a boom arm, therefore the manufacturer would not offer a load capacity in this case. Matthews does offer the Matthews Baby Boom, B&H # MABBM which can fit light stands with a 5/8" pin, specifically C-stands or roller stands. https://bhpho.to/2ZCoRhS
