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.
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 Pano Elements Packages directly on this leveling base or install our PG-02 Panning-Gimbal head.
This leveling base is fitted with a clamp instead of a platform. This makes it ideal as a base multiple tripod heads. Now you can quickly and easily swap between your ballhead to your gimbal head or video head. No need for multiple tripods. Note that each tripod head must be fitted with a quick-release plate. For tripod heads with round bases, see our TH-DVTL-55 or TH-DVTL-40 plates. Only Really Right Stuff delivers this much versatility.
