CG5 (as?) tripod - how to attach something else?
Posted 17 January 2013 - 02:45 PM
I would like to be able to attach something else to the tripod for a head occasionally. Like my paragon bino mount for instance.
How can I get a normal 3/8 or 1/4 tripod bolt sticking out the top?
Research on this topic just confused me....

With just a smaller bolt there, would be no leg spreader. Some all-thread of the right length and or something could be made up into a longer assembly to get that attached also...basically just replace the central rod with a 3/8 one...

Also took a very thick walled 3" ABS plastic cap and drilled a center hole in it - using that as a top plate as a head I wanted to try on it didn't sit right on the cg5 tripod itself.
Works out well and now have a multi-use tripod.
