Arm Post Adapter & Balance Spud

The Steadimate comes standard with a post block and balance pin to fit arms with 1/2" posts. If you plan to use the Steadimate with an arm post that is not 1/2" you will need to get the proper arm post adapter and balance spud to accommodate your arm post size.

Key Features:

  • Take the load off the operator'??s arms for longer durations of operating without the fatigue.
  • Effortless tilting via the pivot on the Steadimate.
  • Increased stability & z-axis stabilization for the smoothest shot possible.
  • Quick interchangeable use from handheld operation to Steadimate operation.

How it Works:

  • Attach the Steadimate adapter to the handlebar of the motorized gimbal.
  • Balance the Steadimate System.
  • Connect your Arm and Vest.
  • Enjoy the operating benefits!


Motorized Gimbals with handlebars that are 25 mm, 25.5 mm, or 30 mm in diameter.

The Steadimate comes standard with a post block and balance pin that fit arms with ½ inch posts. Operators can purchase accessories that adapt the Steadimate to fit arms with 5/8 inch? and ¾ inch? posts.

The weight capacity for the Steadimate depends on the weight capacity of the motorized gimbal, arm, & vest being used. For operators who already own an arm & vest, the Steadimate can be purchased on its own. For operators in need of a complete kit, Tiffen offers Steadimate Systems in two weight classes.
