The Kupo Master C Stand kit consist of a Master C Stand, Grip Head and Grip Arm. 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 two seconds! 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. A "turtle base" is an industry term where the riser section can be quickly removed from the base for easy transportation and the base can be used with a stand adapter for a low mounting position.
The 40" Grip Arm with Big Handle Grip Head is a 2 1/2" grip head mounted on the end of a 40" piece of steel tubing 5/8" (16mm) in diameter. The surface of the tubing is painstakingly machined to create a rough texture to ensure a non-slip surface. The 2-1/2" grip head consists of a pair of rotating aluminum discs attached to a 5/8" (16 mm) receiver. The discs have four different sized "V" shaped jaws to accept any accessory with a 5/8", 1/2", 3/8" or 1/4" mounting stud or tubing. The "V" shaped jaws have "teeth" that grab whatever is mounted between the plates securely. The 2-1/2" grip head features an oversized ergonomic "T" handle and dedicated roller bearings designed for maximum torque.
C Stands get their sizing from the length of their riser sections. This 20" double riser stand has two telescoping risers and one main section for a total of 60". Add the height of the base and you arrive at your maximum height. All Century Stands feature a unique base specially designed with three varied leg heights. This enables the user to stack or "nest" the stand bases so that the risers are just inches apart from one another for use in close proximity mounting of lights and other grip equipment and easy storage.
The Master C Stand features a zinc alloy casting on its base that's five times stronger than aluminum to sustain the weight of heavy sandbags and people standing on it. The hollow junior pin receiver allows debris to pass through for easier cleaning and maintenance. The aluminum casted locking collars are outfitted with a stainless steel heli-coil that protects the aluminum from being damaged by the knob's stainless steel bolt for strength and durability.
