It has two lock offs, one for each side of the Arm to prevent the weights from shifting during use or accidentally falling off the jib. Standard exercise weights (not supplied) with a 1’ hole are easily rig mountable and are used to equal the weight placed on the camera side of the Jib. Once you discover correct balance, consider marking the weights for that particular camera facilitating an easier set up the next time. CAMERA MOUNTING PLATE To accommodate various manufacturers and different sized cameras, multiple slots are provided for attachment. You will need to fine tune your counterweights to accommodate camera, head and other accessories being used on the Jib Arm. MOUNTING THE PAN/TILT HEAD If you are using the remote capability of a Pan/Tilt Head, it can be easily mounted to the jib via the 4 slots located at the corners of the plate using 4 screws. Pan/ Tilt Head is not provided. This assembly is usually accomplished from the underside (bottom) of the jib camera plate. 4 PROAIM 9FT JIB WITH STAND 5 PIN FEATURE FOR TILTING SHOTS Removing the locking pin on the Center Post allows the operator to frame tilting shots by use of the control handle.
