Studio Side Kick STA-06-090 (Lighting)
The STA-06-090 (Lighting) is designed for the Professional Photographer and engineered for daily use. The STA-06-090 (Lighting) is supplied with a steel safety tether cable designed to hold overhead Strobes and LED Continuous lighting. A conventional lighting stand or C-stand is the gold standard but has several drawbacks that are just accepted. For example: 1. You cannot position the strobe close to the ground. 2. They both require a lot of fiddling to set-up which uses a great deal of your valuable studio time. 3. They are both difficult to re-position easily, they have to be dragged or lifted. 4. It's impossible to make small vertical adjustment for fine tuning 5. They are not designed to support a dual or triple strobe set-up. The STA-06-090 (Lighting) provides functionality and saves time: 1. It allows you to position the strobe using the pistol grip anywhere along the vertical column. Either very close to the ground or at the top. 2. One knob opens and locks the base. 3. Locking casters allow quick re-positioning and are supplied as standard. 4. The pistol grip allows very fine vertical adjustments to be made easily. 5. The STA-06-090 (Lighting) is designed to be expanded by adding a second or third pistol grip. The STA-06-090 (Lighting) side kick column material is made of STEEL not Aluminum. The side kick provides a payload capacity of 20kgs/44lbs, which is more than double when compared to other stands. Stands with Aluminum columns dent, ding and scratch more easily when compared to STEEL. STEEL is stronger, 2.5 times more dense than Aluminum, less likely to warp, deform or bend under weight and force. The heavy-duty Pistol Grip Platform with attachment stud, easily guides a Strobe up or down the column. The heavy-duty Pistol Grip includes two locking knobs. The first locking knob prevents unwanted vertical movement when set. The second locking knob secures the attachment spigot / stud. When the center column is set to the lowest position or in "Parking Mode" the side-kick remains stationary on a flat surface without locking the casters. Use "Parking Mode" when small movements are needed to find the best position. A perfect stand for fashion, portrait and event lighting. One heavy-duty Pistol Grip platform with attachment stud is supplied with the stand. Additional heavy-duty Pistol Grips are sold separately for dual strobe configuration.

PACKAGING with Recyclable Materials: Studio Titan respects the environment. When selecting packaging materials, Studio Titan prefers using materials that are recyclable to reduce the environmental impact of its packaging. The column box blue outer plastic material is Polypropylene, abbreviated as PP, is a recyclable thermoplastic polymer widely used in many different products. PP is rugged. PP's resin identification code is 5, and it is recyclable. Product boxes and protection edges are made using corrugated cardboard which can be recycled at depots, in municipal curbside collection programs and through private recyclers. Internal securing foam blocks are made of PE (Polyethylene Foam) – Recyclable. Polyethylene foam products are 100% recyclable. Plastic bags are made of LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene) – Recyclable plastic (check Local Authority) LDPE can be recycled. However, check with your Local Authority to ensure it is recycled in your area. This is described as a hard flexible plastic. LDPE’s identification code is 4 and it is recyclable. Yellow plastic strapping is made of PET (Polyethylen-terephthalat) – Recyclable. It is fully recyclable and commonly used in logistics.
Recycled Materials used inside the products: Studio Titan respects the environment. When manufacturing products, Studio Titan prefers using raw materials that are mixed with recycled materials to reduce the environmental impact of the products. For the Aluminum components: Vertical column, Horizontal column, Legs, Die cast carriages, base, cap and head-mount plates. The typical percentage of recycled aluminum metal to raw aluminum metal is 70% recycled to 30% raw. This globally adopted ratio provides good strength and finish. For the Steel components like: circular or square columns, hardware, casters, gears and counterweight. We have confirmed that the steel is made up of recycled materials combined with raw materials. We are not able to provide the actual percentage of recycled to raw on these components. Each product uses a different ratio based on its particular end use.
