US based photographer and Flash Havoc follower John Kasko has developed the new Stand Loop.
A beautifully simple, lightweight, and practical solution to the surprisingly common problem of simply attaching gear, sand bags, or mounting battery packs etc conveniently to light stands and tripods etc.
And the Stand Loops are available to back now on their Kickstarted campaign, (which has already now reached the minimum funding goal).
The Stand Loops attach securely to the light stand or tripod using a simple slip knot system, and then provide 2 means of attaching further gear.
The closed ring with carabiner will hold up to 1200lbs, locked in securely.
While the hook will also handle a respectable 70lbs, and allow belt clip battery packs like the Godox PB960 to also be clipped on directly.
While super clamps are the regular go to option for attaching gear to a light stand, and incredibly versatile for what they are, they can also quickly add considerable weight and bulk to the kit you have to try and schlep around.
Where the Stand Loop provides a very lightweight and compact alternative, which may not be as rigid, though can also be very strong and versatile.
And the Stand Loop can be conveniently left on the stand etc, ready for whatever use may be needed.
The Stand Loops provide a simple and relatively inexpensive solution to the often surprisingly awkward task of attaching gear securely to the light stand or tripod etc.
They may not be rocket science technology, though a very convenient simple solution made well.
Each Stand Loop kit comes with 2 loop straps and a carabiner included.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
The Stand Loops kits are available to back now from $12 through the Kickstarter Campaign.
And are expected to start shipping within 7 weeks of the campaign completion.
