has introduced a new ball joint designed to interconnect Line-8
profiles at any chosen angle. The units may be fitted onto the end,
or to the side flank of any Item profile with an 8mm slot. They will
secure against a 2 Nm moment, and thus provide a means of securing
light weight equipment requiring infinite angular adjustment to any
frame. One option is provided with a clamping handle and thus is
ideal for mounting monitor screens, cameras, and lights, or anything
requiring frequent adjustment, to a frame.
the simple screw-secured version might be used where adjustment is
required less frequently. A typical example of this would be mounting
a ball joint on both ends of a strut to provide easy fixed bracing to
any frame. This is possible even where the frame members themselves
run at irregular angles and in different planes to each other.
ball and the two socket-body halves are made of die-cast aluminium.
Tightening the clamping screw has the effect of heavily
spring-loading the ball and socket joint. One notable feature is that
the clamping force can be adjusted such that it is possible to adjust
the position of the joint by applying a little manual effort without
having an impact on the ability of the system to resist further
