I've been searching far and wide for a longer replacement T-handle locking knob, for my Steadicam Zephyr docking bracket. Surely there has to be a film specific company, or anyone that sells such items? Ive found a few things but nothing close enough to be right.

The thread pitch is 6-1.00mm, and the Steadicam provided one doesn't thread deep into into the dock block to secure properly without stripping.

 

Secondly does have one know what the standard hole spacing would be for a camera cheeseplate, with alternating 1/4 3/8 holes, center to center? That is the plate that would be attaching the camera to the Steadicam dovetail plate.

 

Thanks for any input or resources!

I've checked out Mcmaster.com Alan and still couldn't fine the the right grip/spacing for what I'm looking for, does anyone know of a film based company? These are common pieces on many carts, rigs, stands, surely there's ONE aftermarket company?

You mean the aircraft pin on the docking bracket? What is wrong with the original one?
