Summary: I bought the Nikon binoc-U-mount for my Leica 10x42 Trinovid, which doesn't have a screw mount on its own (odd for such an expensive and high quality piece of optics). The tripod adapter that Leica offers is very pricey (generally 3x this one) and I haven't seen very good reviews of it. In contrast, the binoc-U-mount works just fine for most viewing. I can see that it won't work with very small binocs, since the entire leather/velcro assembly would be just too big.
Summary: Ordered a pair of these after a couple of searches showed nothing comparable. We have two older binocs that we love and neither is rigged with the socket for adapting to a photo tripod. The Binoc-U-Mount is fairly simple and straightforward in concept - essentially it is a leather strap fitted with a standard 1/4x20 metal socket for securing to a tripod head, with Velcro on the flexible strap ends which wrap around and secure your binocs in place.
Summary: Reference for this item are my Zeiss Dailyt 10x40B T* and Barska 7x42, both are roof prism binoculars armored water resistant/proof. Tripod is a Slik U212 Universal. Product was compared to similar binocular tripod adaptors by Leica and Zeiss via Amazon and the web, no actual physical/hands-on comparison because of the lack of local retail. Pros: Quality construction of top grain cow hide body with treaded metal female 1/4" post. Weaved nylon straps (2) with Velcro.
Summary: I purchased this "universal" tripod adapter for a Brunton binocular that I've owned for many years. I needed something to take the load off my arms as I watch great blue herons for long periods of time...they're nesting at a nature preserve. Unfortunately, I discovered that the loop portion of the velcro which was supposed to secure my favorite binos to the mount would not work because the binos only measure 5" across (to fit my face) and the sticky loop part was...
