The Lav-Rod introduces
a way to wire people in tight clothing without wasting time or having the talent
have to go to a private area in order to feed the connector down their clothing!
The Lav-Rod is made out of
a very thin, yet extremely strong carbon fiber rod. The rod can be ordered in
custom lengths, but is set at a standard 42" length (which is long enough to
wire a 6' tall person with no problem). The components of the Lav-Rod are
machined out of DELRIN (hard plastic) and used to connect the lavaliere and
assist with pushing the wire down the tight pants.
The use of DELRIN is important because the product will not get extremely cold
or hot as would using metal parts would, which makes the process of feeding a
wire down much more efficient and less obtrusive to the talent.
The components of the Lav-Rod
are connected using a coated stainless steel wire, which allows the connecting
adapter to lay flat against the rod as it is being pushed down the clothing.
When it gets to the bottom past the pant leg, it will open up making it easier
to grab and disconnect the lavaliere. Once disconnected, pulling up on the Lav-Rod
will make the adapter follow up behind the rod, ensuring that it doesn't get
caught or snagged on the clothing. There are no sharp edges or areas that may
damage clothing or scratch the talent.
The LAV-ROD works will all of the Lav-Bullet accessories, so you can interchange
all of your adapters depending on the job at hand!
