SKII and a Glidecam Vehicle Mount?

I have a Steadicam SKII. And I'm looking to hardmount it. Anyone know if the Glidecam vehicle mount will accomodate this.

I guess the real question is: are the holes on top of the glidecam mount the correct size to safely slide in the SKII's arm post?

Thanks,
Lonnie

The Glidecam, dual-pin socket block system is not compatible with any Steadicam systems (unless they've been modified). Look to Jerry Hill or Walter Klassen for good hard mounts.

Best,
Afton

Try Steadicam accessory model number 078-7401-02. It's a vehicle mount for the Provid series, and it says in the description on the pricelist that it works with the SK2 also.
