Stainless Steel C-Stand with Grip Arm Kit

Part Number: CSS

From $225.99



The Savage Stainless Steel C-Stand with Grip Arm Kit is a full suite production solution! A patented junior receiver on the lowest leg gives this stand a leg up from the competition. This feature allows users to place a second light or modifier low to the ground, and position the stand into a corner for optimal output in compact spaces. Do more with less gear in the way!

An included 20″ (51cm) riser with junior to baby pin stores away along the side of the main riser when not in use, and can be mounted into the leg’s junior receiver for double action. Mount two lights or one light and a scrim onto both risers to get maximum use from one C-stand. Remove the junior to baby pin from the secondary riser and drop into the leg junior receiver for ultra-low positioning. Transfer either riser from the center to the leg junior receiver to move a light snugly into a corner. Adjust the secondary riser through the foot of the lowest leg to level the stand on stairs or uneven surfaces.

Fast-acting, foldable legs on a turtle base open/close and lock easily with a pull of the release knob.

Included in this C-stand kit is a 40″ (102cm) steel grip arm with an aluminum gobo head and our unique gobo clamp to more easily secure reflectors, scrims, flags and other accessories. The jaws of the gobo head can be clamped onto a variety of different objects from 8mm to 35mm wide. Spigots on ends include one 3/8″-16 male threading and one 1/4″-20 male threading.

This two riser stand is a heavy-duty stainless steel support that can secure up to a 25 lb. (11.33kg) load (more than the competition!) and handle rugged usage in the studio or on location.

Stand includes an adjustable hook for hanging cables and controllers (when mounted high on the column) or sandbags and ballasts (when mounted low) and can fold up alongside the riser when not in use.

Enjoy the convenience of a Rocky Mountain leg and turtle base in one stand.

    This C-Stand met with a bit of typical online consternation when it first was introduced. People were saying, "Why do we need another C-Strand?" Well, there are many reasons. It is built like a tank. The soft blue rubber grip is a big welcome when carrying it. Initially we were looking for a C-Stand that had a rocky mountain leg, and came apart so the bottom of the stand could be stored in our van and used as a turtle stand. There wasn't anything from Matthews, American, Kupo or Manfrotto that would do this. After watching Savage's demo video I was hooked. Self leveling leg, a short separate stand and adapter mount. All wonderful features that have been useful. The ability to slide a light unit completely into a corner of room can be a lifesaver when lighting in small spaces. The newly designed grip head, made like the jaws of a Cardellini clamp is more useful than traditional style grip heads, in that it can hold foam core, reflectors and round extension with ease-not damaging them in the process. I use the hook to hold the power supply for Aputure 300 lights. There is only a couple little things I do wish fo in the future. It would be nice for the hook assembly to fold up and lock in place. Currently it is loose and sometimes gets in the way when not needed. Also, although very stable and very well manufactured, I'd like to see some of the edges of the metal pieces be a little smoother in fit and finish. Otherwise, this is truly the evolution of the standard C-Stand. A great piece of grip kit, and I will surely get more in the near future!

Our c-stands are produced from #202 stainless steel which consists of approximately 19% chromium and 5% nickel, two elements that are important for corrosion resistance. Our stands have been tested in wet environments over a 2+ year period successfully with no corrosion. Other competitor stands use steel with chrome plating, so that if/when the chrome plating is chipped, the steel under is highly susceptible to rust. Our stand tubing is all stainless steel, so heavy-duty use that could result in chipping will not increase the chance of rusting.

Our black coated c-stand is produced from #304 stainless steel. Most competitor black c-stands are only powder coated with black paint and have no other protection from rust. Given the rough treatment c-stands often receive in use, we believe the likelihood of ours  rusting is far lower than the likelihood of another brand chrome plating chipping and consequently rusting.
