AVX Tripod base measurement new
      #6382568 - 02/18/14 11:01 AM

Hi--I'm looking for info on the AVX tripod. I'm wondering about storage in my garage. If two tripod legs are against a wall, how far does the third leg stick out? (In math terms I'm asking for the height of the equilateral triangle formed by the three feet. At least I think that's what I'm asking. I was an English major.) I'm not looking for the height of the tripod.

Thanks in advance for pulling out a tape measure....

I measured with the tripod collapsed (with the legs in all the way) I get 27 1/2 inches. if it needs to be exact.
