About Teenie Weenie
In the past, the film industry standard, as far as rigging goes, has often been 5/8″ piping and numerous connectors and accessories that work with it. But as filmmaking equipment has gotten gradually smaller – the cameras, the lights, etc – we now have the ability to use light weight aluminum rods.
This is where Teenie Weenie Grip Gear comes in. A treasure trove of modular pieces, all designed to interact with the 3/8″ standard. There are mini grip heads, rods, receivers, and adapters, both threaded and non-threaded. The threads are 3/8″-16, same as the larger of the two industry standard tripod thread sizes.
