The HD-M1 holster was built to hold and secure the Dino-Lite handheld microscopes onto a pole. It is great for custom applications where the user may have a compatible existing stand, or want to create a custom stand for the Dino-Lite. The HD-M1 holster holds the Dino-Lite microscopes snuggly at the location above the magnification dial with a thumbscrew. Simply by tightening the thumbscrew, you can secure the Dino-Lite onto the holster. Another thumbscrew secures the holster onto any pole that is 10mm or 8mm in diameter.
