The Head can be used to grasp a short boom, is tremendously helpful on still life sets, supporting everything from reflectors to soup spoonsin clamps. The cast aluminum head design has interlocking facing surfaces to keep a fixed position when supporting accessories on the steel arm in one of four 1/4″, 5/8″, 3/8″, and 1/2″ diameter channels.
The jaws open to a maximum of1-1/8″ to hold rods, dowels and studs. The channel disks pivot about the center tightening handle and is grooved to friction hold firmly.
