Promaster XC-M 525 Column Tilt Adapter

Overview

The ProMaster 4028 Column Tilt Adapter expands the capability of your XC-M 525 or XC-M 528 tripod (both aluminum and carbon fiber versions) by giving its center column the freedom to tilt 180° (90° up & 90° down). This adapter essentially converts your XC-M's center column into a multi-position, adjustable boom. Just unscrew the weight hook from the center column, loosen the center column twist lock and slide it out of the tripod. Replace it with the 4028 Column Tilt Adapter, tighten the twist lock, and open the flip lock on the Column Tilt Adapter. Insert the center column and close the flip lock. This conversion can easily be done in less than 30 seconds! Once your XC-M 525 or XC-M 528 has been converted, you can reinstall the weight hook to the bottom of the adapter and add weight for more stability. A second, retractable weight hook is included with this adapter which you can use at the end of the boom (end of the center column) to counterweight your camera. To operate the boom, loosen the main knob on the 4028 Adapter while holding your camera, and then tilt the assembly into whatever position you like before tightening the knob. To rotate the boom, loosen the twist lock on the yoke of the tripod and spin the adapter. To extend or retract the boom, use the twist lock on the column to adjust its upper stage. This adapter has a number of teeth machined within its joint to provide excellent holding power in various tilt positions. Be sure to tighten the adapter's main knob before you release your camera to prevent it from falling.
