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 tried to use a grip arm as a mini boom by mounting a light fixture at the end of it, only to find gravity pulling it downwards because the set screw wasn’t strong to hold up its weight? We’ll now there’s a simple solution.
