Great for inconvenient lighting placement.

By Hunter Thomas Cinematographer

Comments about Impact 3.0" Baby Pin Wall Plate:

I mounted this to an Apple box for low mounted lights. I also set up a permanent Audition Studio, and screwed these into the walls and ceiling rather than using C-Stands. It is very helpful.

Comments about Impact 3.0" Baby Pin Wall Plate:

Buy the pin. Screw it to a 1/8th apple box. Put a sandbag on the box. Put a light on the pin. Done. You now have a extremely useful and versatile piece of equipment that isn't limited to the studio.

      Seems like a solid piece of gear

      Comments about Impact 3.0" Baby Pin Wall Plate:

      This seems like a fine piece of gear for mounting lights to walls or for attaching to reflectors so they can sit in a light stand.
      Because it's not a name brand product, I wouldn't use it overhead or anywhere its failure would put the cast or crew in danger, but it's fine for lower-weight lights and whatever else you might want to attach to it.
      In the end, we have to just trust that B&H is doing quality control.

          It seems well constructed, good price. Anyone with LED panels on a yoke should have a few of these for quick table setups close to talent. Heavy enough to not tip holding a 12"x6" lite panel.

                    Haven't mounted this anywhere or mounted anything to it, but I have plans to attach a mirror for a strong direct reflector. I don't expect this plate to ever fail - it feels incredibly durable, and I doubt I'll have to replace it.

                        A perfectly priced high quality wall plate. Mounts easily with a few screws and presto, you've saved a bunch of money. I discovered Impact's line of grip gear only recently and regret spending twice as much from one much better known company. I regret it only a little bit.

                          The design of these plates could be improved with 2 additional holes on the short ends to allow for centerline placement on a stud wall. If you hang lights from the the ceiling I would highly recommend these. In addition I would always use some plastic coated, heavy duty picture frame wire to secure the light in the event of an earthquake or metal fatigue.
