I need help from all the pro arm owners out there.

I´m about to use a Pro arm for a four day shooting next week, and the guy I´m rentin it from does not have the wrench to reverse the arm ( I´m using a DSD and he uses a Master vest) since I haven´t seen this wrench I don´t know how it looks like, Any Help?

It is a spanner type wrench. 2 little pins about 1 cm apart that stick out of a flat piece of alluminum. You could probably get it off with a circlip plier.

Depending on how much the pin caps were torqued you will need 2 of these wrenches. (PRO Arm Wrench) Actually always use two, it's way easier.
If you use any other tool it will scrach up the pin caps and/or the A link. I'm sure the owner wouldn't apprechiate that.

Also if you don't torque them down enough, you will lose the caps... in the worst case scenario the vertical axle will fall out too.

You could give GPI a call (818-982-3991), maybe they can send you a set.

Or if not...

Where do you live?
Send me your FedEx Number and I can send it out to you.

Let me know.
