Question Ultimate clamps??

I'm searching for what I've known as 'Ultimate Clamps.' I believe they were made by Ultimate Support, but I can't find any info anywhere. They had an L shaped bar about 9" long, with 3/8 threads on each end, so they needed adapters, and a big clamp in the middle that could be repositioned on the bar. I used to get them from NYC theatre shops with wireless packages for the paddles, and were the greatest thing since sliced bread - you could put them anywhere, and were completely configurable. Anyone know what I'm talking about? I fear these have been discontinued.

Not Ultimate!

if you get them from NYC theatre shops, you're talking about a very specific clamp.

They are made by K&M. That's a model 240/5.


Hope this helps.

Here for the gear

I just a Google search on this model and didn't find much in the way of N.A. dealers, if that's where you're located. I didn't do the dealer search on K&M's site, so maybe they are commonly available here. Depending on what exactly the application is, you might find the Bogen/Manfrotto Superclamp easier/faster to locate. Two can be easily joined together to achieve most angles and there are extension arms. You can often find used ones on ebay, though there are knockoffs, too, that I can't vouch for. Just a thought.

Awesome, thanks Jim and Pan! That's exactly what I was looking for. I mistakenly thought they were made by Ultimate, who I believe used to, or maybe still does distribute K&M in the US - didn't think to look there.
