In March 2022, Greg Flores of Grip Rigs contacted us with a brilliant product – Apple Box Dolly idea:
My idea is to make these smooth dollies for camera operators to sit on when they are handheld. The dollies will be able to include a seat kit from you or use apple boxes. The base dimensions are 14-1/2″ x 20″, with the Mitchell mount on the center and a lift handle on both sides. There will be six wheels (3 on each side), and the wheel has a stem size of M10*25mm.
The base will need two additional layers that will support all apple box sizes, which are universally 8″x12″x 20″
From his idea
Custom Easy and Greg quickly started with Apple Box Dolly’s first version. After two weeks, we run the prototype for testing and re-check all specifications and mounting dimensions:

- 20″ long x 14″ wide x 5″ tall
- 420lb weight Limit

Who will need it?
Yeah, camera operators in the studio will need it. And now, filmmakers can not change the height shot conveniently if the director requests it. This smart product helps you to save your back and knee on set.
