Universal Leveling Base
SKU: TA-U Leveling Base
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 designed to be compatible with all tripods. It has a 3/8"-16 socket on the bottom, allowing it to be screwed on to any mounting platform with a stud of the same size and thread call-out (3/8"-16). Screw the leveling base onto the platform of your tripod, or any mounting platform onto which you want to mount a leveling base to. Twist the handle to lock & unlock the base. The fluid motion allows smooth and fast leveling, no matter the load. 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.
