The Quicksticks come with a unique spring-loaded quick release system that allows you to swap out the plate on-the-fly. Since it’s symmetrical you can also flip it and clap from both sides of the camera.
The sticks are made of hardwood (locally sourced oak) and protected by a natural oil finish. They contain hidden magnets that can’t fall out to keep the sticks closed while not in use and give you a well-defined *clap* without springback. Another very strong magnet allows you to attach a whiteboard marker. We prefer and recommend Schneider markers and include one in your initial purchase, but of course, you can use any pen.
The hinge itself is made of brass and can be adjusted in friction with a screwdriver.
The plate itself is made of 100% recycled translucent acrylic that has been engraved with your design. The engraving is scratch-proof.
We offer three different variations of plate designs:
- Standard design without customization
- Partial customization
Logo in the bottom right corner and film title as an image; and director, dop and a hidden field as a text
- Full customization
Use one of our templates and make it yours and have full creative freedom.
To get your fully custom design on the slate, use one of our templates found here, edit it using a vector program like Adobe Illustrator or Affinity Designer, and upload it in the checkout process. Please read through the instructions carefully to minimize errors and get the best result.
Caution: The black screw contains Nickel.
