Replace All Those Nuts And Bolts On Your Lighting Rig!


Recommended Posts

My triangular truss on two tripods requires me to fasten and unfasten 3 bolts to join the two halves of truss together and two bolts at each stand to secure it. I have also replaced all safety locking pins with the same. This also means I have to carry an allen key, similar tools and spares.

 

I have replaced all of these bolts with bicycle quick release seat clamps and believe I have reduced setting up and taking down time by 5 minutes on each. I also use these on some less heavy led lighting effects and I have also replaced all safety locking pins with the same.

 

If you have no idea what they look like, view this link.

adds a bit if colour if you don't just want black...... and some of my dj friends have copied the idea so I thought I would share.
