A leveling base on your tripod is the perfect foundation for gimbal heads, pano gear, fluid heads and even ballheads. Each leveling base offers 15° of leveling capability and locks solidly with just a twist. Choose a leveling base with a flat platform for direct mounting of a tripod head. Or choose a leveling base with a clamp if you want quick-change convenience for multiple tripod heads on the same tripod.

This Leveling Base is for Really Right Stuff Versa Series 2 tripods.

Remove the top plate from your tripod and replace it with this robust leveling base. Twist the handle to lock & unlock the base. The fluid motion allows smooth and fast leveling, no matter the load. At only 11.7 ounces, this is the lightest leveling base of its class on the market.

The unique design of this leveling base allows the tripod to get as low to the ground as possible. This was accomplished by replacing the handle which falls below the apex of the tripod with a relatively low profile locking mechanism that resides above the apex. Additionally, this locking ring gives the user greater leverage for better lock-up.

This is the perfect base for all Really Right Stuff panorama gear used on an RRS Series 2 tripod. Build our Ultimate-Pro Packages directly on this leveling base or install our PG-02 Panning-Gimbal head.
