SAFETY TIPS
Please review the following tips before using
the EZFX Jib, so so you can use it safely.
1. Before using the JIB in a professional setting,
practice the set up and operation of the jib in the
convenience of your studio. Include any personnel that
will be using the JIB and make sure that they understand
how to use it safely.
2. The use of a leg spreader with the tripod is required
when using the JIB. Either a floor spreader or midlevel
spreader will tie the legs of the tripod together and
strengthen the tripod.
3. Always rest the camera end of the JIB on to a solid
surface when assembling or disassembling the JIB.
You are working with a counter balancing system, with
that in mind, remember that removing weight from either
side can cause the other side to drop.
When assembling the JIB mount the camera first,
then add the counter weights. When disassembling the
JIB, remove the counter weights first then remove the
camera.
4. Never remove any weight from either end of the Jib
when the Jib lift brake locked. Never force the Jib to
move when it is locked in either the lift or swivel
position.
5. Extending the legs of the tripod gives additional
height to the JIB, but creates additional safety concerns.
Use clamps such as the Super Clamps shown in our
brochure to reinforce the tripod leg clamps and prevent
the extended leg from slipping.
6. This extended configuration requires 2 people for set
up. In this high configuration the camera will not rest on
the ground even at its lowest position. Use a chair, table
or spotter to support the camera during the set up and
break down of the JIB. This will reduce the stress to the
joints of the JIB and prevent it from tipping over.
7. There are many pinch points on the JIB, be careful
with your fingers or cables that may be running to the
camera.
8. Don’t try to move the tripod with the JIB, camera and
counter weights unless you have it on a rolling dolly.
And even then, always roll the dolly with the camera in
the low position and always have a spotter at the camera
for security. If you have to move the JIB without a dolly,
take the time to remove the counter weights and camera,
then reposition the tripod.
9. Finally, be aware of your surroundings, especially on
indoor locations. The end of the JIB extends out in
opposite directions and may knock things over or
simply obstruct your shot.
Be safe, not sorry. Know your equipment
well so
you can operate it confidently and safely.
How To Set Up the EZ FX HANDLE
NOTE: All italisized parts can be identified on the
EZ FX Handle diagram (FIG. 1) to the right of the instructions.
. Unfold the EZ FX Handle from its folded position and remove the
lotted plate from the rest of the EZ FX Handle. When unfolding the
Handle, the hand grip should pass between the two vertical arms.

2. Sandwich the Slotted Handle Plate between the Camera Plate
and Pan/Tilt Wedge plate as shown in the diagram. Use the 1/4 X
3/4 inch screws that were provided and stored on the EZ FX Handle.
This should be a one time only process. The Slotted Handle Plate
an remain with your camera plate at all times for future set ups. The
T- Knobs are removeable and can be stored in the threaded holes on
he upper mount plate of the EZ FX Handle.
NOTE: When using Bogen / Manfrotto heads, a special set of
1/4 x 3/4 screws. Call 800-541-5706 if they were not provided.

3. Attach the EZFX HANDLE to the EZFX Jib.
Snap the pan/tilt quick plate back into the pan/tilt head mounted on
he end of the jib. Remove the mounting knob from the mounting post.
Run the screw through the hole at the base of the camera platform on
he jib. Be sure that the swiveling mechanism and mounting post are
n the proper configuration as shown in the drawing.
Attach the Upper Mount Plate to the Slotted Handle Plate via the
T Knobs. Loosed the T Knobs and slide the slot on the Upper Mount
plate then tighten the T Knob to secure the plates together.
NOTE: When using a Bogen / Manfrotto head with the hand grip
style claw ball washer & knob combo, an alternate knob & washer
will be needed to prevent interference with the EZ FX Handle.
Vertical Adjustment
4. Fine Tuning the EZFX HANDLE
The objective here is to form parallels between the camera plates
Parrallelogram
and lower arm. Do this by moving the lower arm up or down via the
adjustment slots in the vertical arms. Also, form a parallel between the
vertical arms and the imaginary line formed between the center of the
pan/tilt head and the swivel mechonism of the HANDLE. Do this by
liding the upper mount plate forward or back in it’s glide track.
Remember, the objective is to create a parallel-o-gram between the
orizontal and vertical arms. These are one time adjustments that
Horizontal Adjustment
should not change unless you use a different size pan/tilt head. You
may want to place markings on the EZFX HANDLE and plates once
adjustments are made.

HELPFUL HINT: Operating the EZ FX Handle requires two hands.
One on the hand grip of the Handle for moving the camera and one on
he JIB to counter act the other hand’s motion. Try alternating hands
o find your preference. With a little practice you can master it.
