Here's the Spot Dot 2000 and it's carrying case.

Here the Spot Dot 2000 is mounted on a
follow spot. 

Here's what the red dot looks like.

SPOTDOT 2000(tm)Followspot Sight
Lightweight.  New Stronger Magnetic Base.
Better than a Laser.

Direct from the Manufacturer.  Spot Dots are used around the world.  I think they are the absolute bes! And now the magnetic base is more powerful than ever before.

Accurate at all distances.  Hit your mark on the stage every time without ghosting or chalk board marks.  No one will know you're using a sight -- not the audience, not the talent, not even the LD!

Aimed by a centered LED red dot in the sight. This is NOT a laser! The red dot is NOT projected beyond the sight.  Bright dot is visible under all conditions. eg. stage lights pointing up at you or in outdoor venues before dark.  See the dot, put it on the talent and open your douser.  Perfect every time.

Zero magnification means you can watch the whole stage and use the scope at the same time.

Compact. It folds up so small you can carry it to your lamp in your shirt pocket!  Lightweight -- only 5 oz.   Magnetic base conforms to round or flat surfaces.  No need  to tape this baby down!  Powered by one readily available 3v lithium button battery which provides useable power for 40 hours.  Unit does not have to be opened to replace the battery.  Comes with high impact carrying case measuring 6x4x2 inches.

The Spot Dot 2000(tm) was developed by TOOLS FOR STAGECRAFT.  I personally use it and I love it. I never do a show without it.

Spot Dot Leash
By popular demand, I have created the Spot Dot Leash. It's a ring that goes around the armature of your Spot Dot II followspot sight which attaches to a lightweight 4" chain which in turn attaches to an angled steel plate. The plate is 2" long for a full width of gaffers tape to lay across it and tape your whole mechanism to the followspot itself. That way, should an accident occur, your Spot Dot doesn't land on the floor or worse yet in the audience 60 feet below.

Spot Handle (tm)
Just like power steering.
You must try it to believe it!

The Spot Handle(tm) is just like Power Steering on your car.

Put it on your Followspot and you won't believe how much easier it is to manuever the lamp. All your moves become much smoother.
Gives you incredible control and unbelievable ease of operation.

It's designed to attach to the long carry bar on the side of the followspot but can be mounted in many other locations.  You can even attach two (one to the front and one to the rear of the front carry bar). I do this when working ice shows and circuses where the angle is often very steep. Having two mounted at different heights keeps me from getting "hunch-backed." And you'd be surprised how two Spot Handles will make long Ballyhoos and pans less tiring.

The Spot Handle is another product I will NOT do without when running a follow spot. You won't believe how useful it is until you actually try one yourself, so why not order one today and become a believer?  Or as one roadie told me, "I don't know why it works, but it DOES!

Spot Glove (tm)
No more burned hands and arms.
Fingertip to elbow protection.

The Spot Glove(tm) is the solution to Followspot Operator Arm Burns.

Tired of getting burned on hot Followspots?  Tired of draping your Spotlight with makeshift blankets that someone always removes before you use the lamp again?  Tired of trying to hold the lever knobs with the very tips of your fingers?  The Spot Glove(tm) is the solution.

This Left-handed glove gives you protection from fingertips to elbow. And it's comfortable. The hand is made of flexible buckskin and the forearm is a tough cowhide. Not "clunky" like a welders glove. Backside of glove is fabric with a camo print.

I use the Spot Glove every time I run Follow Spot. I can rest my "douser arm" on the hottest 2.5K Xenon Super Trouper and never even think about getting burned.

The Spot Glove comes in MEDIUM ONLY for the LEFT HAND.
Please only order the Medium glove

Countdown Timer

How many times have you been doing a show on Followspot and your next cue was "down-the-road-a-bit?"  It's easy to lose track of time when you're sitting in the dark. Don't miss your cue.  With the Countdown Timer you can quickly set it for the time remaining before your next cue. Electronic "chirp" alarm is loud enough (but not too loud) and the large digital readout is easy to see in subdued lighting.
Great for Stage Managers too.
