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:

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:

 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.

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:

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.

Creating Beautiful Light Fixtures with SnakeClamp Flexible Gooseneck Tubing

We recently received some pictures from a woodworking customer who used our 18" Heavy-Duty Flexible Gooseneck Tubes in Black to fabricate a custom flexible arm light fixture.  To say that we were impressed is an understatement!

SnakeClamp 18" heavy-duty flexible gooseneck tubes used to make custom light fixture

This custom fixture was made from a 14' long piece of driftwood found on the shores of Lake Huron.  Although our flexible gooseneck tubes have female threaded end adapters, you can use our lamp nipples so that you can pull wires through and attach the gooseneck with a nut.

Here is another view of this beautiful fixture:

Should you find yourself on the southern end of Lake Huron in Canada, stop by Lake Life Studio (a glass studio) and see it for yourself!

Here is one more view of Lake Life Studio:

Flexible Gooseneck Arm Used to Position Vacuum Hose Dust Collector In Workshop

A customer recently sent us pictures showing how he is using a SnakeClamp flexible gooseneck arm with a 3 Finger Clamp to mount a vacuum hose - dust collector in his workshop:

SnakeClamp flexible gooseneck arm and 3-finger clamp supporting dust collector vacuum in a workshop

"Black walnut wood dust is extremely toxic to woodworkers' lungs. Since I would be producing very fine dust doing the finish carving with a rotary tool, I wanted an additional vacuum source as close as possible to the carving bit on the log in the photo. As you can see, I already have a general dust collector. But I also wanted something I could easily position and re-position depending on exactly where I was using the rotary carving tool (not pictured). The SnakeClamp products provided the means to build one."

 

In this setup the customer utilized our steel Plate Mount for attaching his flexible gooseneck to a piece of wood.  Then a 90 Degree Angle Adapter is used to "hang" the 3 Finger Clamp and suspend the vacuum hose below.

Here is a close up look at how the versatile 3 Finger Clamp is attached to the vacuum hose:

The 90 Degree Angle Adapter usually connects a flexible gooseneck arm with our Rigid Arm, but in this case the customer chose to attach it directly to the 3 Finger Clamp.  This required our 2" long Coupling to do that because both the 90 Degree Angle Adapter and 3 Finger Clamp have male threads.

Here is another look at the vacuum system which utilizes our 18" Super Duty flexible gooseneck arm:
