Impact Super Clamp with Ratchet Handle

The Impact Super Clamp with Ratchet Handle is a versatile grip tool made of lightweight cast alloy. With a load capacity of 33 lb, the clamp can hold a wide variety of items such as cameras, lights, umbrellas, hooks, shelves, plate glass, cross bars, even other Super Clamps.

The Super Clamp can be securely mounted on any tube or pipe from 0.5" to 2.1" and is supplied with a wedge insert for clamping onto flat surfaces. The ratchet handle allows you to disengage it and tighten it down from any angle; a very handy feature when you're using the clamp in tight quarters.

Impact 59" Varipole Extension (Silver)

The Impact 59" Varipole Extension is a 59" (1.5 m) extension pole for the Varipole Support System. The maximum reach of the basic Varipole is 12.1' (3.7 m), and if that is not long enough for your needs, use the Varipole Extension to extend it with an extra 59" (1.5 m).

The Varipole Support System mounts between floors, ceilings or walls to provide support for grip accessories, reflectors or lights. This extension bar can also be used as a background crossbar, when using the Varipole system in the horizontal orientation. Varipole Extension bars come in lengths of 59" (1.5 m) and 78" (2 m), and in either a black powder or a brushed aluminum silver finish.

The Varipole Extension is solidly built and easy to set up. Simply remove the spring-loaded tube from the top of the Varipole and insert the narrow end of the Varipole Extension. Replace the tube of the Varipole and you now have more reach capability for that higher ceiling or farther wall.

question

My ceiling has is slightly tilted. Will the top of the Varipoles work with a slightly tilted ceiling?
Asked by: James
Yes, and very easily in fact.I have used/locked the Varipole in place, with the pole tilted 7 from level where I was able to secure strobes/speedlights, etc.. The poles will lock in place with any reasonable amount of resistance from any kind of ceiling which can be anything from a traditional home ceiling to an overhead rocky outcrop.Whether the pole is tilted or not isn't the issue; the issue is whether or not the stopper or pad at the top of the pole is secure enough on a ceiling's surface to adequately secure the pole in place... meaning even though a ceiling is tilted, you can effortlessly place the poles upright and just let the stopper at the top of the pole tilt. That's it!A slightly tilted ceiling is a non-issue.

question

does the Kupo Kupole Tripod Base work with this system?
Asked by: The
The Kupo Kupole Tripod Base B&H # KUKD200412 MFR # KD200412 will not work with The Impact Basic Varipole Support System B&H # IMVP712SPK MFR # BGSS-VKBS. Not only will the Autopole not fit in the Kupo base, the base is not needed. Autopoles are designed to be self-contained. This Varipole Support System is a telescopic freestanding pole, secured between floor and ceiling with a simple lever movement. Nothing else is needed.

question

Does this support variable widths? I need it to be exactly 7 feet wide. Thanks!
Asked by: Justin K.
The poles will definitely go to that positionable width, however, you will have to purchase another cross bar section or go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a wooden pole cut to the 7 ft length. The whole system is really a great thing. I have three sets!
