What to include in your Grip starter kit

I’m getting ready for an upcoming (two day) shoot and, while packing, I got to thinking about the tools in my belt. So if there is anyone out there who wants to grip, here is a list of the bare essentials you need starting out (im sure it will grow as you work but these are the minimum you probably want from the get go). 

MUST HAVE:

  • A tool belt with pouch
  • A crescent reach
  • Standard multi-tool (this will have a small screw driver, pliers and wire cutter in the pliers included)
  • A pocket knife and/or box knife 
  • C47s (AKA clothes pins)
  • Head lamp
  • Leather work gloves 
  • Ratchet with a 3/16 bit

OPTIONAL:

  • Measuring tape 
  • Small level 
  • Matte Black paper tape 
  • Black and white gaff tape 
  • (Note: don’t go buy the tape, you can usually get a used roll while on set)
  • Your own walkie surveillance

Hope you find this useful!
