Under base boards or tables. In furniture, book cases, etc. Between bricks, blocks, etc. In door jambs. ...There are hundreds of places to stick this handy gadget where another type of clamp simply won't work or at least wouldn't work as simply. A welcome piece in my bag of tricks.

Must Have For any Set

Super sturdy, fits hundreds of crazy places, and is strong enough to hold a good sized soft box. A few days shooting on location we would have been dead in the water without a few of these. Very creative solution to several lighting problems.

I'm too curious... why is there a putty knife with this pin?
Asked by: Etienne
The putty knife with 5/8" pin is used to mount a small, lightweight fixture with a 5/8" receiver. The putty blade is wedged under a lip or into a crevice such as the siding on the exterior of a home, a doorjamb, or a ceiling beam. This is normally a quick fix when other rigging is limited due to time or gear restraints. Anytime anything is rigged overhead it must be safely secured.
