Kupo’s Revolutionary Turtle Bases

Anybody who has ever tried to open or close a C-Stand (Century Stand) more than likely has had an experience that wouldn’t be described as “fast and easy”. Kupo has revolutionized the Turtle Base with it’s Kwik Kollar that allows you to open and close the base in under a second with just the force of gravity.

Watch this video to see just how easy they are to operate and how they can save you time and hassle making your set-up and breakdown a snap!

I think Sir Issac Newton must have been the first professional grip! A turtle base simply means that you can quickly remove the base from the riser section. This is great for multiple reasons such as:

#1 – Ease of transport. With the base removed, the two parts are much easier to pack for storage or transport.

#2 – Flexible use. With the riser section removed, you can insert a stand adapter, otherwise known as a butt plug in the grip world, to give you a low mounting position.

#3 – The base has a standard junior (1-1/8″ or 28mm) receiver to accept any standard junior pin. This is great news for those who already own other manufacturers of turtle base C-Stands. If you want to make your life easier, you can just buy one of our turtle bases to give your old C-Stand a new lease on life and more free time in yours! Just drop your riser section into the spring locking base and you are ready to rock and roll!
