Painter's poles are inexpensive and expand quickly to your desired length. As such they are the perfect option for a hand held boom. The Kupo Painter's Pole Adapter consists of a machined aluminum black anodized adapter with a female 3/4"-5 thread that's common for most painter's poles. On top of the adapter is a removable 1/4"-20 male threaded screw. You can remove the 1/4"-20 male screw from the top of the adapter with a screwdriver. The painter's pole adapter includes a baby 5/8" pin with 1/4"-20 male thread that allows you to mount lights, cameras, microphones, etc.
