***Note: The latest revision of the Bolt receivers (fanless) are thicker and do not fit this cage. If you have one of these receivers, please see the Fanless Bolt cage.
The original Bolt SDI and SDI Pro receivers will fit this cage. ***
This is a bracket to hold a Teradek Bolt HD Receiver on the back of a TV Logic VFM-056WP 5.6" HD monitor. Requires the use of 4x M3 x 8mm screws to screw into the threaded holes on the back of the monitor. If you already have a battery plate for your monitor, you already have these screws.
You can also screw your existing battery plate onto this Bolt cage (so the cage is sandwiched between the monitor and your battery plate.) You need 4x M3 nuts (they press fit into the ears that stick out) and 4x M3 x 10mm screws to hold the cage and battery plate together. The photos here show my customized battery plate (also available for sale—see here
) attached onto the Bolt Cage. The customized battery plate has a cutout for a voltage display as well as a cutout for a 2-pin Lemo receptable, to power the Bolt with a short jumper cable. See Battery Plate
for more details.
The Bolt cage has cutouts for the two HD-SDI ports, the Lemo connector, USB and mini-plug. The antennas in the Bolt receiver are in the top portion of the unit, and they remain clear of obstruction for good signal reception.
The lug on the left side is meant to accommodate the tapping and installation of a 1/4-20 helicoil. This allows you to use a 1/4-20 nylon thumbscrew to lock the Bolt in place.
Black Strong and Flexible is the recommended material; you should give the final 3D print a coat of satin-finish water-based polyurethane to seal the dye in place and provide some scuff resistance. Photos of actual 3D print above show the cage with a coat of satin-finish water-based polyurethane. The material is porous so it soaks right in.
