The Kupo S742512 Master 20" C stand is used for mounting lighting equipment and a whole variety of light shaping tools and accessories. The Kupo Master C Stand with Turtle Base features a unique innovation in the world of C Stands that enables the still or moving image-maker of any skill level to open and collapse the legs of the base in under two seconds!
The Master C Stand is outfitted with a patented spring ring locking system that removes all tension from the legs so that gravity can do the work for you. A "turtle base" is an industry term where the riser section can be quickly removed from the base for easy transportation and the base can be used with a stand adapter for a low mounting position.
C Stands get their sizing from the length of their riser sections. This 20" double riser stand has two telescoping risers and one main section for a total of 60". Add the height of the base and you arrive at your maximum height. The Master C Stand features a zinc alloy casting on its base that's five times stronger than aluminum to sustain the weight of heavy sandbags and people standing on it. The hollow junior pin receiver allows debris to pass through for easier cleaning and maintenance.
The aluminum casted locking collars are outfitted with a stainless steel heli-coil that protects the aluminum from being damaged by the knob's stainless steel bolt for strength and durability. This stand is clad in a chrome plated finish.
