Simple, Effective Mounting Accessory for Lights, Mics, and Cameras



Ian Pack, creator of the Gel Clip, has come out with a new gear accessory that might make your next photo shoot a little easier; the 1420 VAL Spigot.  This is a threaded stud connector (like you’d find on the end of a light stand) that is capable of attaching to the end of a common painter’s extension pole.  If you’ve ever needed someone to manage the position of your off-camera flash while you were busy shooting, you’ll know why something like this can come in handy.

Pack has been developing this product for awhile.  Early in 2014 he added a ¼” 20 turn UNC thread to the ⅝” 16mm spigot making it even more versatile, opening up a whole range of additional products and accessories that can be used with it.

Key Features

  • Standard 16mm 5/8″ Spigot
  • Standard 1/4″ 20 UNC thread
  • Inline and transverse 3/4″ holes for attaching to painters extension poles etc
  • M6 x 20 thumb screw for secure fixing to extension pole etc
  • Lightweight aluminium weighing less than 80g/3.5oz
  • 80mm long x 30mm diameter approximately!
