The RigWheels Aluminum RigPlate is one of the most versatile pieces of camera mounting hardware you can own. Versatility is king at RigWheels. The first function is to serve as a camera mounting plate to attach RigWheels to. One RigPlate and one set of RigWheels provides you with smooth movement as a table-top / skater dolly that you can use on any smooth hard surface. Using RigPlate as a pipe dolly gives you scalable slider / dolly option that is tailored for the new generation of mid-size and compact cameras.
Attaching two RigPlates together creates a captive-rail camera carriage that allows secure camera movement at any angle. Using RigPlate in conjunction with RigAxels adds even more capability to this simple affordable system with a more traditional table-top dolly setup and a robust pipe-dolly option.
RigPlate is a great camera support platform and it can be used for much more than camera movement. With the amount and variety of mounting points there are an endless variety of accessories that can be attached. There are ten 1/4-20 and five 3/8-16 threaded holes (industry standard sizes) in addition to four 5/16" and five 3/8" pass through holes.
A RigPlate can be turned into a rock-solid suction mount by adding the A-Cups or B- Cups. The suction cups can also be attached to the RigAxels providing an option for 'outriggers' for camera stabilization.
