Providing flexibility and precision, grip heads and arms are essential tools in film, television, and photography. Grip arms and heads are primarily used for mounting, positioning, and supporting various types of lighting, modifiers, or other grip accessories. These items provide flexibility and precision in controlling the position, angle, and height of the equipment.

Grip heads are multi-functional clamps with various-sized holes and a locking mechanism for holding accessories. They are designed to hold accessories such as grip arms, diffusers, scrims, or umbrellas, and can be mounted on grip stands or C-stands. Grip heads come in several sizes, with the most common being 2.5 inches and 4.5 inches.

Grip arms are adjustable metal rods that attach to grip heads, extending reach and positioning for equipment like lights, flags, or scrims. There are different types of grip arms available, with some featuring telescoping designs or swiveling heads for added versatility and precision.

Proper use of grip equipment contributes to the overall quality of the final production, whether it be a photograph, film, or television show. Grip arms and grip heads are essential for achieving the desired lighting or set design and are available in a wide range of options to suit your production needs.

What Is a Gobo Head?

Gobo head is another term for grip head or knucklehead. It is a multi-functional clamping device used in film, television, and photography industries for mounting, positioning, and supporting various light stand accessories and grip equipment.

How Do Grip Heads Attach to Stands?

Grip heads can be mounted on grip arms or grip stands by fitting them onto the stud and tightening the locking mechanism, ensuring a secure and stable connection. While grip heads are generally designed to be compatible with most grip arms and stands, it's important to check the specific dimensions and compatibility of the grip head and grip arm you plan to use together.
