Z-Rail Accessories and Top Grips

The top of your camera can often be unused space, but it's ideal for accessory placement and adding (or replacing your camera's plastic grip with) a solid, secure, multi-purpose Top Grip. Complete your rig with our Z-Rail, Rail Accessories, Recoil Handle top grip, and camera specific top mounts.

Rails and Accessories

We offer three different rail options to fit your camera. Our 3" Z-Rail attaches via (2) ¼” 20 screws (included) that are spaced 3/8" screw center to center at their closest to 2" 5/32" at their furthest. The 5" Z-Rail attaches via (2) ¼” 20 screws (included) that are spaced 3/8" screw center to center at their closest to 4 1/8" at their furthest. We also offer a 'T' style version combining two 3" rails. 3zrail5zrailzrailT

The accessories pictured below and all our other Z-Rail mounts attach at any point along any Z-Rail or our Halfcage Rail (pictured below). Use them to keep your accessories close and to quick-release them easily and quickly from your rig for set-up and break-down. zrail_slidezrail-rodlockzrail-rodlock90zrail-zmount

Grips and More

Our universal Recoil Handle attaches to any of our rail accessories - the three basic rails listed above, our Halfcage Rail which attaches to our VCT Universal Baseplate (perfect for DSLR and mirrorless set ups), and our camera specific top mounts. recoilhandle3f5_topplate_01halfcage_rail_04helmetkit_01
