This mounting option is suitable for attaching lightweight objects such as the iPad Mini and lightweight cameras and video cameras. For attaching heavier objects such as iPads, check out our heavy-duty Multiclamp  We call this mounting option a Multiclamp because it can be used for attaching your SnakeClamp to many different objects: flat surfaces such as tables, desks, headboards; as well as round pipes/rods/railings including wheelchairs, hospital bedrails, etc. This is our strongest and most versatile clamping option.  It is built from two massive alloy claws for grabbing onto flat surfaces up to 1-1/4″ thick or any round pipe/rod/railing from 1/2″ to 2″ in diameter.

FLEXIBLE GOOSENECK AND RIGID ARMS

We offer 7 different model flexible gooseneck arms in stock and ready to ship:

  • 9", chrome-plated
  • 13", black e-paint
  • 18" Light-Duty, chrome-plated
  • 18" Heavy-Duty, chrome-plated
  • 18" Heavy-Duty, black e-paint
  • 18" Super-Duty, chrome-plated
  • 24" Heavy-Duty, chrome-plated
Flexible Gooseneck Arm Our flexible gooseneck arms feature either a durable chrome-plated finish or a black e-painted finish. Each end of the gooseneck has an adapter with 3/8"-24 (24 threads per inch) female threads. NOTE: 3/8" screws, washers and a 7/32" Allen wrench (for 3/8" screw) are included with all SnakeClamp attachments and mounting bases. THEY ARE NOT INCLUDED WITH THE GOOSENECK but can be purchased separately (see item SCP-HP Hardware Pack). Both end adapters include a 4mm set screw to hold the 3/8" screw firmly in place. A 2mm Allen wrench (for 4mm set screw) is also included.

Our 9", 18" Heavy-Duty, 18" Super-Duty and 24" Heavy-Duty gooseneck arms are very stiff. The exceptions are our 13" and 18" Light-Duty goosenecks which are much more flexible but do not support as much weight. Gooseneck arms are strongest in the vertical position. In this orientation all of our gooseneck arms can support 6 lbs. However with the 18" Light-Duty gooseneck the weight must remain centered over the mount. With the gooseneck arm mounted horizontally, it's weakest orientation, the 9", 18" Heavy-Duty and 24" gooseneck arms can support 2 lbs. without bending; the 18" Super-Duty can support 2-1/2 lbs. and the 13" and 18" Light-Duty goosenecks can each support 1/2 lb.

You can splice two goosenecks together for additional length with our 1" Threaded Stud (SCP-STUD1), sold separately. However a spliced gooseneck will not support as much weight as a single gooseneck.

Rigid ArmOr you can combine our 12" Rigid Arm together with flexible gooseneck arms for even more possibilities. Flexible gooseneck arms are limited in reach and strength - but by splicing together rigid arms and flexible gooseneck arms you get the best of both worlds. Use our rigid arms to get the reach you need, then add a flexible gooseneck arm to provide the flexibility. Each rigid arm is 12" long and features the same 3/8"-24 female threads on each end. Rigid arms are hollow and weight 0.35 lbs. Each end has a 4mm set screw and we include a 2mm Allen wrench. One 1" threaded stud is included (SCP-STUD1) with each rigid arm for splicing to a flexible gooseneck arm or another rigid arm.
