  • 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.
  • Pros: Easy To Use

  • Excerpt: Working great so far. I have a Sachtler with spikes. They are slightly off when connected to the spreader, but not enough to be concerned with. Especially given the price.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well, Improves Tripod Function

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.

  • 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.

Pretty solid so far

  • Excerpt: I've only had this for a few weeks but so far it's been much better than the mid-level spreaders I've had on my Manfrotto 546B legs. Creates a smaller footprint and I don't have to lift up the tripod to close in the legs a bit to lower the bottom risers.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well, Improves Tripod Function
  • Cons: Plastic

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.

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.
