  • Excerpt: I'm old school, I prefer a ground spreader. This one works well enough until it breaks. Fortunately it's inexpensive enough to just replace and then you have one for parts.

Replacement for broken piece

  • Excerpt: I bought this to replace the spreader that came on my manfrotto tripod. Never thought much about the spreader until I forgot to lock the last leg one day. The leg slipped, twisted the spreader and it snapped.

The usual good quality from Manfrotto

  • Excerpt: My mid-level spreader broke and I bought this ground spreader as a replacement. Works better than the mid-level spreader. Decent part and holds up to hard use.

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: Only good for simple, non active shoots. Cheap plastic broke in Alaska immediately. No way of repairing either. I had to throw the old one away!

Needed it and worked well!

  • 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

  • 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...
