Rapid-Latch Angle adjustment system
The Rapid-Latch Angle adjustment system allows you to quickly set the angle of each leg independently, even when wearing gloves. All three legs are detachable, allowing you to use the quick levelling system, with optional accessories, as the base for a high hat for low angle shots, or for working on a tabletop setup. Each detached leg can be used as a monopod or as a boom arm. The Rapid-Latch angle adjustment system was designed to be easy to use, even for those with impairments or those wearing thick gloves.
Levelling Base with Friction adjustment
The levelling base incorporates a bubble level and allows you to quickly level your head on the tripod, even when working on uneven terrain. A D-ring on the bottom of the base enables attaching the weight to the legs for increased stability and also allows you to adjust the friction on the levelling base.
With three detachable legs, the Mike tripod can be converted to a tabletop tripod by using optional 3LT footwear, and the legs can be used as monopods or boom arms
The twist-lock leg locks feature 3 Legged Thing's O-Pads, which provide improved grip, torque, and water displacement
