RM1A (RM1A/M) and RM1B (RM1B/M) C-Clamps for Ø1" (Ø25 mm) posts each have two mounting points located 90° apart for perpendicular mounting of components. One of the mounting points has a tapped hole while the other has a counterbored through hole. Alternatively, the RM1C (RM1C/M) has one mounting point with a rotating threaded mounting stud. The C-clamp design allows the clamp to be slipped on and off the post easily. Simply loosen or tighten the brass tipped (non-marring) setscrew that locks the C-clamp to the Ø1" (Ø25 mm) post.
The RA90RS clamp allows a Ø1/2" TR post to be mounted perpendicularly to a Ø1.0" RS post. The design, which is based off of the RA90 Right-Angle Post Clamp, combines a highly stable clamp flexure lock with a thumbscrew locking mechanism to provide a solution that enables a Ø1/2" post to be mounted perpendicular to a Ø1" post. The center-to-center distance between the Ø1.0" and Ø1/2" posts is 1" for the imperial version (25.0 mm for the metric version).
RM1D (RM1D/M) Variable Offset C-Clamps for Ø1" (Ø25 mm) posts have a mounting surface that can be varied in position over a range of 0.4" (10 mm) in addition to a fixed position tapped mounting hole on the backside of the clamp. The variable position mounting surface has either a tapped or counterbored through hole (model dependent) and it is locked in place using a thumbscrew. The C-clamp design allows the clamp to be slipped on and off the post easily. Simply loosen or tighten the brass tipped (non-marring) setscrew that locks the C-clamp to the Ø1" (Ø25 mm) post.
The C1026 (C1026/M) and C1060 (C1060/M) relief cut clamps for Ø1" (Ø25 mm) posts are designed to support 30 mm and 60 mm cage systems, respectively. Two parallel cage rods can be placed in the clamp and with a single screw they can be locked in place. In this way, complete sections of cage systems can be supported by a single post as can be seen in the application image at the top of the page. The clamp itself has a precision Ø1" hole bored through it with a relief cut. A 1/4"-20 (M6) caphead screw can be tightened to compress the gap created by the relief cut, which results in the C10 Series being secured to the Ø1" (Ø 25 mm) post with a great deal of force.

Thorlabs’ Mounting Joists provide valuable space-saving mounting options, ideal for crowded optical tables or breadboards. These mounts are compatible with our Ø1/2” and Ø1” posts and allow multiple optics may be mounted close together on a single joist, eliminating the need for multiple posts and post holders.
The PJ301(/M) enables centered-mounting (optics may be placed on both sides of post center) and features a centered, counterbored hole for an 8-32 (M4) cap screw for post mounting and counterbored slots for an 8-32 (M4) cap screw and #8 nut (M4 nut). This joist allows an optic to be offset by 0.40" - 1.40" (10.16 - 35.56 mm) from post center.
The PJ302(/M) enables offset-mounting (optics may be offset to one side only) and features counterbored slots for an 8-32 (M4) cap screw for post mounting and a counterbored slot for an 8-32 (M4) cap screw and #8 nut (M4 nut). This joist allows an optic to be offset by 0.40" - 2.70" (10.16 - 68.58 mm) from post center.
Please Note: Imperial nuts only fit the imperial joists; metric nuts only fit the metric joists (nuts included).
