Summary: These leg spikes are easily installed on your Gitzo, and come with two sizes of washers and removeable rubber feet for indoor use on delicate surfaces. They are a MUST when used outdoors, as the original bouncy rubber feet do not provide a steady platform on loose surfaces or in the wind. They should be listed in the "Accessories" column of every Gitzo tripod model since most people are unaware of their availability.
Pros: Compact, Fits Well, Good in mud or snow, Improves Tripod Function, Lightweight, Steady on loose surfaces
Summary: Dont let the warning fool you, I bought these for my 1530 gitzo pod and they work fine. The screws fit snugly and the feet Really hold onto the spikes when you first get them. Little bit of WD40 fixed that!
Pros: Fits 1 Series 1530, Fits Well, Improves Tripod Function
Summary: Contrary to other internet comments, these spikes work perfectly on my Gitzo 2530 tripod. They screw in snugly and don't seem to come loose. I will carry a 1/2 inch open wrench or cresent wrench with me in case they do come loose in the field. Very happy.
Pros: Don't melt like rubber, Fits Well, High Quality, Improves Tripod Function
Summary: Being Gitzo I was expecting them to be good, but these are really good. Comes with two sizes of washers and rubber end caps, I'm guessing to match the ends of your tripod. I use a GT3541XLS, which I assume means has a "0" end section, and the smaller size washer/cap matches.
Summary: This is a really useful accessory - and in some conditions it's pretty essential. All the more pity, then, that Gitzo doesn't supply it as part of the original monopod purchase!Mine stays fitted to the monopod most of the time. The covering rubber cap fits well, but can be readily removed (best done with a firm twisting motion). My only word of caution is, if you're travelling by air with your monopod in your hand luggage, do remember to remove the spike first.
