PRO Arm Bumpers
Posted 18 December 2014 - 02:42 PM
I've been struggling with the rubber bumpers that are on the PRO Arm elbows. They just never stick well and keep falling off or sliding so that they become useless.
I even replaced them with different bumpers or softside velcro pieces that didn't work out.
What do people do to resolve this issue?
Any recommendations to stop your arm from getting banged up?

I struggled with that too. I ended up just using tape (not even fancy rubber tape, just 2" black gaffers tape... and it's not even put on neatly).

I've just covered the "wiggler" in the elbow and the part next to the socket with 2" velcro, soft side. The adhesive lasts forever, it's "padded" so it offers a small buffer, and we've always got lots of it laying around on set so you can replace it. Also, should you work on a show and need to be *GASP* tethered, you can run the BNC up the arm and use hard side velcro to pin the BNC cable in place.
