Matthews Max Menace Arm

Matthews Max Menace Arm


The Matthews Max Menace Arm will support lighting fixtures up to 175 pounds and allows you to place fixtures almost anywhere on set – back lights, over set walls and in places where lifts are restricted such as rooftops and balconies.  

The Max menace arm will support a 75lb light fixture up to 17.5ft on the horizontal and over 20ft in elevation. Its horizontal plane can be adjusted from 7-10ft and at an extension of 8ft it has a capacity of 175lbs. 

The max menace arm can be counterbalanced with either shot or sand bags or by using standard weight plates and can be moved around easily on flat, level surfaces.

Key Features:

  • Can be positioned flush against a wall, into or around a corner.
  • Works below the horizontal thus eliminating the need for scaffolding.
  • Can be positioned parallel up to a 10′ ceiling.
  • 16′ extension without adapter. 17.5′ extension with adapter.
  • Self-leveling head with Baby Pin and Junior Receiver.
  • Fast and easy setup or tear down.
  • Easily movable at full extension on level surfaces.
  • Angles are adjustable with light fixture attached.
  • Use for lights, flags, frames, branch holders or even cameras.
