  • Drop-In Installation and Removal of Lens Tubes

  • Accommodates C-Mount Extension Tubes or Ø1" Lens Tubes

This lens tube clamp is designed to enable easy installation and removal of C-Mount extension tubes from optical systems. To remove an extension tube, simply unscrew the 3/32" (2.5 mm) hex clamping screw, flip the mount open, and lift the tube straight up and out. This feature is useful for users who, because of tight space constraints, do not have the room to slide the entire extension tube out of a mount. The clamp can easily be mounted to any of our posts using the #8 (M4) counterbore on the bottom of the clamp. We also offer clamps for our Ø1/2", Ø2", and Ø3" lens tube systems.

  • Ø1.2" Bore Supports Outside Diameter of SM1 Lens Tubes and C-Mount Extension Tubes
  • Compatible with 30 mm Cage Systems
  • Nylon-Tipped Setscrew and Double Bore Securely Hold Lens Tubes
  • Not Post Mountable

The CP36 cage plate is designed to allow our SM1 Lens Tubes or C-Mount Extension Tubes to slide into the cage plate and be locked in position with a nylon-tipped 8-32 setscrew. This is ideal for situations where it is not desirable to thread the lens tube into one of our threaded cage plates. It will also allow our Ø1.2" free-space isolator packages to be integrated into a 30 mm cage system. A double-bore design gives three points of contact for stable and secure mounting. Each cage rod through hole is accompanied by a side-located locking M4 setscrew, which can be secured using a 5/64" (2 mm) hex key or balldriver.

Please note that this cage plate does not feature a tapped mounting hole, unlike many of our other cage plates. Due to the bore size, there would be interference between the threaded stud on our Ø1/2" posts and the clear aperture of the bore. Therefore, this cage plate cannot be used directly with Ø1/2" Posts, and a cage system utilizing this plate must be supported using a different method. For a post-mountable solution, consider our SM1RC or SM1TC lens tube clamps, but note that these parts are not cage compatible.
