A few months ago Kupo announced an exciting innovation in grip arm design called the 40″ Hex Grip Arm. It’s a standard 40″ Kupo Grip arm but at the other end of our 40″ grip arm, you will find a baby hex pin with six milled flat surfaces machined into the surface. Now, you can mount your light fixtures or accessories on the end of your grip arm like a mini boom. They won’t rotate due to the set-screw of that fixture or accessory, locking onto one of the sides of the hex pin. Here is a short video so you can see it in action!

Hex Pin Detail
Normally you would have to use a long pin through the grip head to mount your light fixture or accessory, but we figured why not take a standard grip arm and make it that much better? When using the 40″ Hex Grip Arm, you should always place one of the legs of your stand in line with the grip arm. I would also suggest using a sandbag opposite the load so it won’t tip over.
The 40″ Hex Grip Arm is available in silver or matte black.
Have you ever struggled to open or close a C-Stand and almost wanted to give up despite the great versatility it offered you once you finally got the legs open? Well if you have, you certainly are not alone! The only guys that make it look easy are professional grips who certainly have the experience of opening and closing many of them on a daily basis. How would you like a C-Stand that you can open and close in under a second, hassle free? While other crews are still struggling with their C-Stands after a long production day, you’ll already be at your local bar with an ice cold drink! Check out the following video to see how.
The Kupo Master C Stand with Turtle Base features a unique innovation in the world of C-Stands that enables the still or moving image-maker of any skill level to open and collapse the legs of the base in under a second! The Master C-Stand is outfitted with a patented spring ring locking system that removes all tension from the legs so that gravity can do the work for you.
The Kupo Master C-Stand with Turtle Base comes in 20, 30 & 40″ double riser versions. Each size is available in a stealthy black powder coat or a chome plated steel finish.
