Century Stands, or simply known as C-Stands, have been the most common type of grip equipment used by the filmmaking industry for decades due to their strength and flexibility. Used on their own, or in combination with a grip head and grip arm, the C-Stand is used for mounting lighting equipment and a variety of light shaping tools and accessories.
The Kupo Master C-Stand with Sliding Leg features two legs that are spring loaded to open in fixed positions while the third leg is height adjustable by loosening a locking knob and sliding it up and down the main riser section. This enables the user to raise one leg higher than the others to level out the stand on an incline or uneven terrain. This feature provides optimum support of lights, reflectors, and gobos.
All C-Stands feature a unique base specially designed with three varied leg heights. This enables the user to stack or nest the stand bases so that the risers are just inches apart from one another for use in close proximity mounting of lights and other grip equipment along with easy storage. The 40in Master C-Stand has a chrome-plated finish and a zinc alloy casting on its base that's five times stronger than aluminum to sustain the weight of heavy sandbags and other equipment. The aluminum cast locking collars are outfitted with a stainless steel heli-coil that protects the risers from damage.
