The Filmtools Magic Mount Kit
includes, 3 Manfrotto Magic Arms, 3 Filmtools 6" suction cups, and the Filmtools cheese plate.
The Filmtools Suction Cup
has a spring-balanced pump that ensures a consistent vacuum level and a red-line indicator warns if there is any drop in holding power. Just a few strokes on the plunger will remove the air from between the mount's vacuum pad and the mounting surface. As long as the mount maintains a reliable hold, the plunger remains partially hidden inside the pump and the red line is not visible. If the red line appears, another stroke or two will restore full holding power. A firm push or pull on the rubber tab at the edge of the pad releases the mount.
The Aluminum Filmtools Cheese Plate
comes with 35 3/8" diameter holes spaced every 1". All corners are counter-sunk 82 degrees. It only weighs 1.65 lbs. The plate measures 7 1/2" x 6" x 3/8".
The Manfrotto Magic Arms
each weigh 2.3lbs, with a load capacity of 6.7lbs. They measure 21" long with a diameter of 7.8", made of high quality aluminum.
