In photography and videography work, flexibility is king. You’re often at the mercy of your gear, so if you’re searching for a versatile solution that you can use on each and every shoot please let us introduce you to the Rock Solid Master Articulating Arm.

This fully adjustable arm is designed for positioning a tablet, small monitor, camera, light, off-camera flash, and many other accessories in the optimal position – long story short, it puts your gear where you want it, when you need it.

The Rock Solid Master Articulating Arm’s center lock is metal construction with locking teeth, which, once set prevents any movement or sagging.


Simple to use, the large easy-grip knob is comfortable in your hand allowing for quick adjustments, and when the center knob is loosened, all three articulation points loosen for easy maneuverability. When the perfect position is achieved, tighten the knob and the locking teeth ensure that once your arm is locked down in the position you prefer it won’t move or slip.

Need a unique solution for a tricky situation on set? The Rock Solid Master Articulating Arm has full articulation and movement. Put it anywhere, there’s no limitation on its plane – the posts move 90-degrees with 360-degree movement on the arm.

The two 5/8″ (16mm) Baby locking hex stud ball joints rotate 360º, plus a cut-out in each sleeve surrounding the ball allows the stud to be bent 90º. One stud accepts a 3/8″-16 thread, while the other accepts a 1/4″-20 thread for added versatility. Each stud has six milled flat surfaces, so whatever is mounted on the Master Arm will not rotate once secured.
