Even if Action Products was a U.S. company, I don't think it would be an issue since the two products are non-competitive.

Garrett inspires us all with his creativity. Just a matter of time till they add a vest so workers could walk around with their tools. Finally a good use for all the old 3A arms.

So, das this mean that in a while, i can buy an arm at the local hardwarestore? Looks like the G50 to me. And i guess way cheaper.

Yeah, it looks like it could be possible in near future. You go like: I take that box of M6 screws and one of those zeroG arms, please. No bag thank you. ;-)

very cool, its an idea that makes scene. It almost seams over due. I can see that stands and hardmounts becoming much cheaper with a higher demand and increase in production.

When I was building my own rig, I brought my arm into the hardware store so I could pick out the right replacement bolts. I set the arm on the checkout counter to pay for the parts, and the clerk picked it up, turning it over in her hands to find the UPC code. I can't remember if I was flattered that she thought it was a real product, or afraid she would actually find a price tag and not let me walk out until I paid for it.
