The Halfcage Rail attaches to the Zacuto VCT Universal baseplate. It creates a solid, universal cage structure around the side and top of your camera rig and is adjustable to work with all camera shapes and sizes. It creates great stability, giving your camera a sturdy side grip and the ability to add a top grip.

An included 5" Z-Rail attaches along the side of Zacuto's VCT Universal baseplate with two ¼” 20 screws. The Halfcage Rail then attaches via a ratcheting, quick-release clamp at any point along the 5” Z-Rail.

At its most compact height, the Halfcage Rail has a clearance of 5.5”. Expand the cage via four Allen screws on the handle side and the maximum clearance grows to 9”. The handle side has two rows of ¼" 20 tapped screw holes and a quick-release 15mm rod port to attach accessories. The handle itself is hand tooled, fine, three-quarter maple.

The top portion of the Halfcage is a double-sided Z-Rail to attach a top handle or Z-Rail accessory. There are four threaded ¼" 20 screw holes for threaded accessories. The Z-rail is double-sided so accessories can be mounted on top or under slung.

Like the video states, it is the last cage you need to buy!
Use this primarily on my sony mirrorless with the xlr audio hotshoe attachment, the combo with this cage is a great setup. Part of my studio setup, making it easy to mount various items like mics, lights, and the seinheiser receiver. Wood handle are reversible and sturdy without being slippery. The height adjustment makes this compatible with all your different cameras.
