Features

Holds A Variety of Optics

The VTL-KT is a pen tool specifically made to pick and place optical components like lenses, filters, and mirrors. The kit contains one each of the following: 3/16", 3/8" and 1/2" dia. non-marking suction cups each for picking up the many sizes and shapes of various optics. 

How Does it Work?

To operate the pen tool, simply assemble the pen, adaptor and suction cup together, depress and hold the side panel on the pen, then release it after the suction cup is on the optic. The vacuum created but the pen allows the suction cup to grip the optic.  To release the optic just press the side panel again.  The VTL-KT is easy to use and requires no batteries or power source.
