SmallRig Articulating Arm with Dual Ball Heads (1/4"-20 Screw and ARRI Locating Screw) 2115 can be used to mount an accessory on your camera rig firmly and flexibly. Each end features a tightening thumbwheel for easy accessory mounting, with rubber pads protecting the equipment from scuffing. Use the included small hex key to further tighten the thumbwheel if a heavy device is attached. Compared to a single 3/8”-16 screw, the ARRI locating screw is much safer with two anti-rotation pins. Both ball heads are secured using the single, large thumb lever. Compatible with a wide range of devices such as field monitor, LED light, sound gear, etc., this arm has a load capacity of up to 5 kg/11 lb. It is interchangeable with other SmallRig ball head parts such as 2132, 2134, 2211, 2114 for different mounting configurations.

I bought smaller cheaper off brand versions of this before. If you¡¯re trying to save a buck, skip that step and just get this. It¡¯s f¡¯ing rock solid when tightened and the just feels better.
Holly shit this is really awesome. I can mount it anywhere around my cage, it's strong and small.
Having seen normal magic arms used on set to support on-camera monitors, they constantly disappointed due to loosening over time and moving no matter how much you tightened them. Pleased to say this magic arm with the ballhead system is extremely rigid when tight and wouldn't budge at all. Needless to say it's also extremely versatile with other ballhead options from smallrig. hopefully it'll live up to it's performance over time.
The magic arm serves an adapter to mount monitor cage to the camera cage. It could be attached and detached quickly. Though it is very plain-looking, it is very useful. What's more, its price is very reasonable, hence a very worthwhile purchase.
