Hmmmm, got my new Ikelite 6130.1 today. The handle appears to be extremely well connected to the tray. Anyone out there with this housing using non-Ike strobe arms?

OK, found the answer while sorting through ULCS's website. ULCS has a new part (BA-IK) that clips into the new Ike quick disconnects.

Yeah, you can get the small balls from Ikelite as well.

Or, you can get a large ball to small ball clamp, from ikelite.

Hmmm, wasn't aware that Ike made any 1" balls -- I'll have to look into that. I know they make the 1" to 1.25" clamp. However, I like to use a triple clamp right next to the housing to hold the slave sensor on my DS-125. If the sensor is farther up the arm, I have to keep playing with it to make sure it is aimed properly!
