- Magic Finger
A 5/8" Baby Pin mounted on a Ball Head which can be mounted to the top of any Baby Stand. Will lock tight at any angle between 360 degrees in the pan and 90 degrees tilt. The new Extended Magic Finger allows the mounting of a 2-1/2" Happy Head or Grip Head in addition to a Baby fixture.
- Meat Axe
Originally designed for use on studio catwalks; it is now commonly used in television studio grids. The attached C-Clamp mounts on the grid or railing of the catwalk, and allows the mounting of a flag or cutter via its 2-1/2" Grip Head. For safety reasons, neither the arm nor any of the attachments are removeable.
- Menace Arm
Menace. A noun. 1) Something that threatens to cause evil, harm, injury, etc.; a threat: Air pollution is a menace to health. 2) A person whose actions, attitudes, or ideas are a menace.
In movie terms, a menace arm is just what the word describes. A menace. A possible danger; a threat.
Before MAX, a Menace Arm was a jury-rigged arm usually built on set and used to place a light or camera in an otherwise difficult position. This was not only very time consuming to build and very dangerous if not constructed or used properly.
Hence the Max Arm designed by Key Grip Richard Mall and built by Matthews is safe and time efficient, capable of lifting and placing a light or camera from a negative six feet to positive 17 ½ feet with a horizontal reach of 17 feet.
- Mombo Combo
Redesigned for greater strength and safety the new Mombo Combo is capable of reaching new heights. At its full extension of 27 feet, we strongly recommend the use of the new Guy Rope set that is now available and Anchor Pins if no other safe attachment is available.
