Greetings Steadicamers,

First timer on the forum...hope this is the right place for this question.

We recently purchased a Handsfree-Transporter to use with our ProVid 2 and Flyer. The hardmount for the Transporter has a Master Series block, so I'm having to convert our ProVid 2 Arm to accept the Master Series Mount (parts 078-2078 & 300-7823). I was able to remove the access cover with great difficulty and stripped out one screw...ugh. Now I'm trying to figure out how to remove the pin that holds the old ProVid2 block so I can attach the MS block. Does anyone here have any experience and guidance for this operation? Please help.


Many thanks,

Patrick :unsure:

Fold the old hinge block over so you can see the back of it. You should see a hole, in which there are usually two tiny grub screws, one ontop of the other. These screws keep the pin in place. Unscrew them, slide the pin out, swap the block and re assemble. Done.

Greetings Rick,

Thanks for your reply. I got the two grub screws out...it was hard to see that they were on top of each other. The pin came out with ease. My dilemma now is that the new hinge block is 1/8th inch shorter that the old hinge block...is this correct or did I get the wrong hinge block from STEADICAM?

Thanks,
Patrick
