The Ground Plamp is an articulating arm used to hold macro subjects and other useful objects. The stake
is inserted into a variety of ground types and held by the pipe sheath connected to the arm. The other end (with the smaller black clip) grasps the object you wish to hold.

How to use your Ground Plamp:
To use the ground plamp, first remove the stake from the sheath then rotate and insert into the sheath with the blade facing out. Then grasp the sheath and insert the blade into the ground.
Using Reflectors and Diffusers:
The Ground Plamp will hold 12” reflectors and diffusers in any position without problems.
20” reflectors, which are generally held in a relatively vertical position and not fully
cantilevered out, can be held and positioned confidently with a single Ground Plamp.
20” Diffusers can be cantilevered above your subject using one Plamp, however
it is pushing The limits of the Plamp’s holding capacity. It might take some
Experimentation to find a position that will hold. Aggressively bending
the joints of the Plamp back and forth until they start making a louder
squeaking noise will temporarily increase the holding power of the Plamp.
For diffusers larger than 20” in diameter we suggest using Two Plamps.
