Gibraltar Quick Release Hi Hat Clutch
This is an invaluable clutch that works great, saves time, and is well made. Every hi hat stand should use one. It is great for easy and fast set up and take down; it holds your cymbals, and replaces any standard hi hat clutch on hi hat stands. Works with any standard hi hat rod from any manufacturer. I have used hi hat stands from many manufacturers, DW, Pearl, Ludwig, Tama, and this Gibraltar device is a must. If you are setting up and taking down frequently as I do, you will love this clutch.
The clutch installs in about 10 seconds. Simply compress the button to release the base from the clutch, remove it and the lower felt, place in cymbal hole, replace the lower felt and snap the clutch back on. Adjust felt tension nuts if desired. Place on cymbal rod and tighten wing nut to desired top cymbal height as you would any clutch. No more screwing the bottom nut off and on as you would other clutches. Once you use this, you wil never use a conventional clutch again. Once you install it the first time, which might take about 30 seconds, the next time takes 10 seconds, maybe less!
Gibraltar makes only the best hardware, and is leading the way for hardware innovation.
Complete with everything you will need to hold the top cymbal on a hi hat stand, wing nut, snap clutch, felts, etc.
