Wimberley Plamp Stake - PP-300
The spike has been designed for quick and easy placement without the need for a hammer. The Extension Tube is a high grade UV resistant plastic pipe which is designed to hold the spike.
Introducing the Plamp Stake. If you are out in the field, this is the Stake you will want to have to use along side your Plamp.
The Plamp Stake can be anchored in a wide variety of ground types, creating a stable, stand-alone pole for attaching your Plamp. This opens up new creative possibilities and isolates your subject from unwanted vibrations and movements coming from your tripod and camera.
The Plamp Stake is a device which allows the Plamp II to be secured independently in various ground types. The Plamp Stake consists of two components: the Ground Spike and the Extension Tube. The Ground Spike is a high-quality custom screwdriver. In our extensive search we found nothing that compared in terms of functionality and cost effectiveness. The spike has been designed for quick and easy placement without the need for a hammer. The Extension Tube is a high grade UV resistant plastic pipe which is designed to hold the spike.
Inserting the Device: Hold the handle of the Ground Stake and firmly push into the ground. If additional control and leverage is desired, the Plamp Stake can also be pushed into the ground with extension tube attached.
Storing The device: Wipe dirt and debris from the Ground Spike. Remove the spike from the extension. Insert the spike into the extension as shown below until it is securely seated. The Plamp Stake is now ready to be stored in your gear bag
Adjusting the Ground Spikes fit inside the Extension: Time and various conditions may affect the fit between the Ground Spike and Extension. Therefore the spike has been designed with an adjustment screw so that a snug but not excessively tight fit can be achieved. This adjustment can be made with a standard slotted head screwdriver. You can use the tip of the spike to adjust the screw if you have multiple stakes.
The Plamp Stake has been designed to allow the Plamp to be secured on the Ground Spike as well as up to 12” above the ground with the Extension Tube. If greater height is needed consider these options: Use multiple Extension Tubes (part# PP-232) connected together. Keep in mind that as the height of the tube increases, rigidity decreases. Use a 3/4”Schedule 40 PVC pipe with bell end or coupler to fit on the end of the Extension Tube. Off-the-shelf schedule 40 PVC pipe and couplers are compatible with the extension. In a pinch this pipe can be used to extend the Plamp Stake or replace a lost Extension Tube.
