i like spreaders

  • Excerpt: these are nice for manfrotto pods. I like the floor spreader better than the metal mid level ones. you can stand on them for a little added support. has a ring in the middle to help when folding the tripod up. easy knobs to open the spreader up wide.

  • Excerpt: I bought a used tripod and it did not include the spreader. I already know how well Manfrotto builds there product, and it was no problem putting it to work right away. For the price its a must for your tripods.

Fits Vinten

Drew, B&H Photo
30 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Just got Vinten 3821-3 tripod legs, and this was a great alternative to Vinten's spreaders - it fits just right. (Obviously it doesn't fit ANY Vinten, but it worked on that model.) I already have a 165MV on my old Manfrotto 501 tripod so I was familiar with the spreader - hasn't broken after years of use, and sure it's not the world's best, but it does what it does just fine at great value.

A must have for tripods

WCTV, B&H Photo
8 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Light weight, easy to install and stabilizes the tripod. We use it on our heavy duty jib tripod. This is the second one we've bought though because the first one broke when the jib fell off a doorway dolly because the students forgot to tie it down. Wish there was more metal and less plastic.
