Lens mount configuration

The Beastgrip Pro includes two different lens lens mount plates to accommodate different phone camera sizes and setups.

For the best lens performance, ensure that you’re using the correct lens mount configuration for your phone and remove any protective case(s).
Plate A (pre-installed)

Plate A is compatible with most smartphones. It includes two different rubber inserts:

  • One with a circle-shaped hole for single camera phones or phones with a flat camera
  • One with an oval-shaped hole for dual-camera phones like the iPhone X, XS, XS Max, XR, 8 Plus and 7 Plus
The lens mount can only be aligned with one camera at a time when using a lens with a multi-camera smartphone (usually the “main” camera).
Plate B

Plate B is for the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max and other phones with larger camera bumps or similar camera shapes, such as the Pixel 4 and 4XL.

Installing Plate B

Use the included allen wrench to loosen the screws and remove Plate A from the lens mount.

Insert Plate B into the lens mount and re-tighten the screws.

Mounting your phone

Squeeze the clamps.

Insert your phone flat against the Beastgrip Pro and release the clamps.

Attention: to prevent possible damage to your phone, DO NOT force your phone into the clamps . See “Adjusting the clamps” on how to reduce pressure from the clamps.

Aligning the lens mount

Loosen all four thumbscrews, align the lens mount with your phone's camera and re-tighten them.

Adjusting the clamps

Both the upper and lower clamps can be mounted in different configurations with the included allen wrench to adjust the amount of pressure they hold your phone with. The closer the clamps are, the more pressure there will be.

Larger phones will be easier to mount with the clamps farther apart, and smaller phones will be held more firmly with the clamps closer.

Attaching the cold shoe mount

Place the included cold shoe mount on any one of the four built-in 1/4"-20 mounts, insert the screw and tighten it with the included allen wrench.

The ¼”-20 mounts are located on the top and bottom of each handle.

Modifying the body

The Beastgrip Pro can be setup differently, based on your needs. See below for a few common examples.
