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.

Dentists and Hygenists Have Discovered SnakeClamp Flexible Gooseneck Arms!

We have seen a surge in order volume among dentists and dental hygienists due to the Coronavirus pandemic. SnakeClamp flexible gooseneck arms are now being used to mount and position polycarbonate protective shields, suction devices and high volume evacuation systems that reduce aerosols.

Here is a Double Clamp SnakeClamp supporting a suction device:

Unfortunately there are many different dental chair brands and arrangements, so you will have to choose the attachments, flexible gooseneck tubes and mounting bases to best fit your situation. One size does not fit all. Some customers have used our Microphone Clips to support their suction devices or evacuation funnels while others prefer our 3 Finger Clamp.

Here a SnakeClamp Table Clamp, 24" flexible gooseneck arm and 3 Finger Clamp are used to support a high volume evacuation suction device that is meant to reduce aerosol.  This frees up the hygienist so that they can use both hands for treatment: 

SnakeClamp high volume evacuation suction that is meant to reduce aerosol so that a hygienist doesn't have to hold it on his/her own and can use both hands for treatment

While we don't recommend splicing flexible gooseneck tubes together because they don't support very much weight, we did have several dentists do that. This one also happens to be very mechanically inclined and created his own suction holder device and figured out a way to attach directly to his chair!  In his own words "The heavy duty goosenecks are perfect for positioning and stability."

Here we have another dentist that is very happy with his setup:

I equipped six treatment rooms with your products, they worked great to keep vacuum lines in place!! Thank you for making these wonderful products, they look absolutely professional. My staff really loves it and appreciate the safety that my creation is providing them.

He used two 24" flexible gooseneck arms splice together with our 1" threaded stud and mounted on our super-strong magnet base.  The 3 Finger Clamp is supporting the vacuum lines.

In this example a dentist was able to support his evacuation hose to a nearby tabletop using our table clamp, 18" light-duty flexible gooseneck and microphone clip:

In this example a dentist drilled larger holes in our Angle Mount and attached it to his equipment using u-bolts:

And here is the other end showing a suction device being held by our Microphone Clip:

Note also that the flexible gooseneck arm above has been coated with a clear heat-shrink material for easy cleaning.  More info on this below.

Some customers have inquired about "cleanable" coverings for the flexible gooseneck tubes.  While we can do that for you it would be a custom order with a minimum order quantity of 250-500 units. We have two other recommendations:

  • You can purchase 2:1 polyolefin heat shrink tubing which is available by the foot from CableTiesAndMore.com.  Choose a diameter that will slide over your flexible gooseneck and then shrink it with a heat gun (available at your local hardware store).
  • You can purchase clear or black PVC tubing at your local hardware store to slide over your flexible gooseneck.  PVC is flexible and easy to clean.

Should you need any assistance in finding a "third hand" flexible arm solution for holding protective shields, suction devices or high volume evacuation systems in your dental environment please call us or send an email.

The dental flex arm conveniently attaches to the back of any dental chair with an extra strong suction cup, and provides a "helping hand" for holding the HVE, blue boa, saliva ejector or your ultrasonic hose.

SnakeClamp Webcam Stand Supports Logitech Webcam at Eye Level

A very pleased customer recently sent us pictures of her SnakeClamp supporting her Logitech webcam at eye level. This webcam is used in conjunction with a desktop PC monitor that does not have an integrated webcam. 

Shown is our 18" medium-light duty flexible gooseneck arm which is great for lightweight webcams.  It can support 1/3 lb. without bending.  Attached to the end of the flexible gooseneck tube is our stainless steel Camera Mount Adapter.

I’m so glad I found your site in a Reddit discussion thread! The gooseneck is perfect for repositioning my webcam. Now I'm at eye level with my clients instead of looking over their heads! Thanks so much.

 Here is a view from the front:
