Custom-Made Flexible Gooseneck Arm Bedside Reading Lamps

A crafty customer recently sent us pictures of his custom bedside flexible arm reading lamps built with SnakeClamp components:

Custom bedside flexible arm reading lamps built with SnakeClamp components

 

While the lamp head is not ours, these were made with our Square Base, 12" Rigid Arm and 24" Flexible Gooseneck Arms. To allow for internal wiring our Lamp Nipples were also used.

Here is another view:

Note that our Square Base does not come with mounting holes (but our smaller Plate Mount does), so obviously if you want to build your own custom reading lamps you will need some basic metalworking skills!

These custom lamps just look awesome!  If you have pictures of your project built with SnakeClamp components please send them to support @ snakeclamp.com so that we can inspire others to build cool stuff.

Flexible Gooseneck Arm Microphone Mount Used in Gaming Setup

A gaming customer discovered how well our Microphone SnakeClamp works to support his microphone in his awesome gaming setup:

Microphone SnakeClamp flexible gooseneck mount used in gaming setup

Shown here is our 18" Super-Duty flexible gooseneck arm attached to a desk with our Table Clamp.  The microphone is supported with our Microphone Clip attachment (which includes a threaded mic adapter).

In our customer's own words:

I’m using my snakeclamp for my microphone which I use while gaming. Previously I had a microphone arm that took up a large amount of desk space and was awkwardly placed. The snakeclamp is a massive improvement and feels very solid! Thanks for making a quality product, my pictures are attached.

Here's a close-up of the microphone in the microphone clip:

In addition to the flexible gooseneck, the mic clip can also be tilted up and down.

Gaming has become very popular these days and if you want to be at the top of your game you will want a quality microphone stand.  What makes SnakeClamp unique is the many flexible gooseneck tube and mounting base options.  We likely have a solution to hold your microphone exactly where you need it.  Build your Microphone SnakeClamp here.

Flexible Arm LED Lamp Inspired by Adam Savage's One Day Builds

A customer contacted us with pictures of a flexible arm LED lamp that he built using SnakeClamp components.  He was inspired by Adam Savage's One Day Builds via his Adam Savage's Tested channel on YouTube.

VILTROX Light Panel on 24" Flexible Gooseneck Arm

This is a VILTROX L116T CRI95+ Super Slim Dimmable LED Light Panel,Bi-Color 3300K-5600K LED Video Light with LCD Control/Light Mount available at Amazon.

Our customer built this task/project light using our Round Weighted Base, 24" Heavy-Duty Gooseneck Tube Arm and Camera Ball Head.  The VILTROX L116T has a variable brightness/color light and is great anywhere you need bright, high-quality lighting.

If you watch the Adam Savage video you will see that the Loc-Line flexible arm material isn't all that strong.  That's why he had to install aluminum armature wire to stiffen it up.  Not a problem with our 24" flexible gooseneck arms - it supports up to 1-3/4 pounds without sagging!  And if you need extra reach you can always splice it onto one or more of our 12" Rigid Arms.

Portable Gaming Monitor Supported by SnakeClamp Flexible Gooseneck Arm

Today we have some pictures submitted by a gaming software developer.  Although the ASUS ROG Strix XG17AHP portable gaming monitor came with a tripod stand, this customer wanted a solution that didn't take up valuable desk space.  So he turned to SnakeClamp:

ASUS ROG Strix XG17AHP portable gaming monitor mounted on SnakeClamp flexible gooseneck tube arm and Megaclamp

This monitor has a standard 1/4"-20 tripod thread on the back so it can easily be attached to our Camera Ball Head.  An added benefit of our ball head is that you can tilt (up to 90 degrees) and swivel it in combination with the flexibility of our  gooseneck tube arms.  The monitor is shown here supported by our 18" Heavy-Duty Flexible Gooseneck in black.

This customer chose our Megaclamp mounting base option which can attach to either a round object such as a pipe or railing or a flat object such as shown here:

In this photo you can see that the ASUS portable gaming monitor is attached to the desktop with our Megaclamp with

 Additionally the Megaclamp has two mounting holes so that the flexible gooseneck arm can be attached either to the top or the side depending on your requirements.

UPDATE: Another customer duplicated this setup and discovered that at 2.33 lbs the monitor is a little too heavy for the 18" Heavy-Duty flexible gooseneck.  This monitor actually requires our 18" Super-Duty gooseneck which can support 2-1/2 lbs.
