The ever-growing selection of lighting accessories on the market demands a mounting system that's highly expandable, flexible, and streamlined. In answer to this need, the second generation of our 1-inch ball arm system provides improved ergonomics and versatility in a lighter, sleeker package. Possible combinations are virtually endless, with opportunities to mount an additional lightweight accessory almost anywhere along the length of an arm.
The 1-inch Ball Arm System Mark II features 1-inch ball components with a groove and o-ring to prevent slippage for improved holding power with less force. While underwater, clamps may be finger-tightened to keep lighting in place yet allow repositioning without loosening the clamp. All parts are hard coat type III anodized for a long lasting, scratch resistant finish.
The new slotted design allows for the attachment of a lightweight accessory in the middle of the arm extension. The Sliding Ball Mount is a perfect mate, with a three-pronged wing nut for easy adjustability. Just loosen slightly and the accessory is able to move up and down the length of the arm for quick repositioning during a dive.
Almost twice as good as a standard two-ball clamp, the new triple clamp allows you to branch off with two of the same—or two different—lighting accessories. The Triple Clamp can be used anywhere you would put a standard clamp.
The base plate of our Clamp with Auxiliary Mount has a threaded mounting point for the addition of an extended ball mount right to the middle of it. Perfect for adding a spare modeling light or video light.
Old and new Ikelite 1-inch balls and clamps are interchangeable. For the best performance, we recommend combining like components within a single clamp (two balls with grooves, or two balls without grooves). Ball components with an o-ring groove should have an o-ring installed at all times.
The Ball Arm System Mark II also works with 1-inch ball arms from Aquatica TLC, Ultralight, Nauticam, and others.
