I've been using cheap plastic pinch type holders available on cheap tripods from sleaze bay.
I usually then attach them to a camera tripod.
I'm sure theirs a better way, or source for something that will hold my lasers securely with out scratching them up.
What do you guys use?
Thanks

I've been using the SL Clamp & Tripod set but it dosen't look like they are being sold anymore, which is unfortunate. Hopefully they are just out of stock and will start re-selling soon!

Hi Alan
Our setups look exactly the same. I checked Survival Lasers and you are right, he's out. Those plastic pinch holders seem to be the answer for now. Saw one on sleaze bay saying it was a WL product. Metal, with too many screw down adjustments. Ugly too.

Working on posting photos. Wanted you to see my 63 year old face in the same googles. LOL
Thank you. +rep

What the heck is LeHap?
Kinda of a long story. When I was a kid my father took me to a zoo to see penguins and when we heard the sound they made, it resembled a "hap" to us. Every since he's called me "LeHap" which is French for "TheHap" lol.

A little cheesy but I think it's funny ;)

Davidx, check this thread out for a variety of good tri-pod/clamp options. :)

Here is another thread showing the "Pedco Ultra Pod ll" tri-pod, this is a great tri-pod, and one of my favorites.
