Kupo 40″ Master C-Stand Turtle Base Overview
The 9.7′, black 40″ Riser C-Stand Turtle Base Kit from Kupo 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. With the turtle base, 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 Hex Stud is a 2.5″ grip head mounted on the end of a 40″ piece of steel tubing 16mm in diameter and finished with a faceted hex stud to keep lighting fixtures in position when they are placed on the end of the arm. The grip head consists of a pair of rotating aluminum discs attached to a 16mm 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 2.5″ grip head features an oversized ergonomic T-handle and dedicated roller bearings designed for maximum torque.
Kupo Master C-Stand with Turtle Base (Black, 9.7′)
The black, 9.7′ Master C-Stand with Turtle Base from Kupo is used for mounting lighting equipment and a variety of light-shaping tools and accessories.
The C-Stand is a steel support with two risers and three sections that fully extend to a height of 9.7′. One great feature is the “turtle” base that detaches completely from the riser, allowing you to mount a light to it. The base has the classic wide, stable “C”-type legs that accommodate easy sandbagging and straddling of obstacles, folding flat for easy transport and storage. The detached riser can be used like a “trombone” or telescoping arm with the addition of the appropriate clamp or accessory. This 40″ C-Stand features a 5/8″ Baby Stud and patented ring-locking system that enables fast setup and breakdown.

Kupo 40″ Hex Grip Arm with Big Handle (Black)
With a black powder-coated finish, the Kupo 40″ Hex Grip Arm with Big Handle has a 2-1/2″ grip head mounted on the end of a 40″ piece of steel tubing, which is 5/8″ (16mm) in diameter. The surface of the tubing is machined to create a rough texture to ensure a non-slippery 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 4 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 feature teeth that securely 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. At the end of the 40″ grip arm, you will find a baby hex-pin with 6 milled flat surfaces.
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. The grip head uses a non-slip aluminum friction disc that maintains its durability over time, offering the user positive locking strength and precise control. The grip head is constructed around a solid steel central bolt with a fixed solid pin to secure it to the aluminum casting for increased strength and durability.
