Grip Hardware

2D House can provide a wide assortment of grip hardware items for your upcoming production.


Heads & Arms

Grip Head - The standard 2.5" grip head is the strongest and most popular in the industry. Plates feature 3/8" and 5/8" mounting holes.

Lollipop - Large 4.5" grip head with a 2K spigot for use with 2K receiver stands.

Grip Arm (40" or 20") - Made of stainless steel with a grip head is attached to one end. T-Handles are ergonomically designed to allow for fast, efficient, safe tightening with little effort.

Manfrotto Magic Arm - A fully articulated arm with 90-degree pivotable and 360-degree rotatable ends, and an elbow that rotates 360 degrees. The knob allows partial loosening for safe and precise positioning of a light head or camera. It has 5/8" studs on ball joints at both ends with 3/8 and 1/4" female threads. Available for rent with two Super Mafers or Grip Head attachments.

Clamps

Cardellini Clamp (2" End Jaw, 6" End Jaw, 3" Center Jaw, 3/8" Mini) - Provides strong, solid gripping of round, square, or rectangular tubing and many other common and irregular shapes. Features ergonomic handle design and reinforced jaws, and the shaft is 1010 chrome plated steel.

Super Mafer Clamp - Strengthened to withstand greater clamping pressure than any other clamp of its kind, the Super Mafer Clamp is now even more diversely effective. The protective pads in the jaws have been reformulated for better gripping action. One pin included with each clamp.

2K Pipe Clamp - Has a uniquely designed hook molded into the clamp which keeps the clamp on the pipe even with a light fixture attached while the bolt is being tightened. The 2K Pipe Clamp terminates in a 2K receiver and also has a safety chain and cotter pin attached.

Duckbill Clamp - Also referred to as a Quacker or Platypus Clamp. Ideal for positioning foam core or bead board.

Scissor Clamp - Made to attach to the dropped ceiling tile support rails found in many offices, the Scissor Clamp affords the mounting of small lighting instruments on its baby pin without the need for a stand.

C-Clamp (2", 3", 6", 10") - Used for holding wood/cribbing, metal, or other work pieces in place.

Big Ben Clamp - A "cheeseboro" clamp with a 1-1/8" pin attached to it serves multiple purposes. Use it with a piece of pipe with a diameter of 1-1/4" to 1-1/2" as a temporary overhead grid.

Hard 90 Grid Clamp - Also referred to as a Right Angle Grid Clamp. Exceeds tensile strength at 17,000 pounds.

Swivel Grid Clamp - Virtually unbreakable when the ultimate in strength is required. Clamp will grip 1-1/4" pipe (1.660) OD minimum diameter, to a maximum of 1-1/2" Pipe (1.990) OD.

Double Ear Clamp - Used for hanging two parallel frames at a consistent 10" separation on all sides either vertically or horizontally on just two lighting stands. The Double Ear Clamp was designed to simultaneously hold LED lighting panels or tubes and parallel diffusion, guaranteeing even light dispersion while offering easy re-positioning. It also offers versatility in applications where more than one light modifier such as gels and diffusion are required on a light source. The Double Ear Clamp construction features offset bends for easy maneuvering, thick welded gussets for strength, and accepts 1" - 1.25" square tubing to accommodate standard European and American frames.

Plates

750 Plate (3" Straight or 12" Right Angle) - This piece of equipment has almost as many names as it has uses. Originally designed for mounting 750 fixtures to the top of set walls, they are also used as the world's lowest stand, and can be nailed to the floor or cribbing.

2K Plate - Functions very much the same way as a 750 Plate, but it's made with a heavier plate and a 1-1/8" Posi-V-Lock receiver for larger lights.

Adapters

750-2K Adapter - Machined from solid steel, the 750-2K Adapter is exceptionally strong. Used to convert 750 male to 2K female. Sometimes referred to as a "butt plug" in the industry.

Speed Rail System

Grid Pipe - Aluminum 2" (with an inner diameter of 1.5") Grid Pipes. Pipe lengths of 2' to 20' available.

Pipe Joiner - For connecting two pipes together to make a longer pipe.

Menace Arm Kit - Provides the ability to boom a lighting fixture into position while keeping the light stand out of camera view.  The system can also be configured to hold cameras and gimbals with optional adapters. Kit includes ear with 9.5” anti-sag center post, dual 750 pin front mount, rear counterweight receiver with d-ring on top and bottom, and one ratchet strap.

Other Hardware
