Three Opening Angles
Each leg mount is equipped with a "Lock Lever" to lock leg position at either of [high], [middle] or [low] positions. Each leg can be set to different opening angles to make an elevator column vertical even in uneven or rough sea ground.
Friction when opening/closing legs can be adjusted by tightening/loosening fixing bolts on joints.
Center Column Type Elevator
The center column type elevator consists of two parts. Removing lower elevator enables to put combined camera position down close to the ground when opening angle is set to low position.
Remove the Lower Elevator Column You can get lower height. Extra "Lower Elevator" can be jointed on the original Lower Elevator to extend total height at 145mm/5.7in.
It is also possible to hang down a camera system by attaching the elevator upside-down for extremely low angle shooting or shooting a subject just underneath of the tripod.

Bundled "2-Way Ferrule" offers two configurations either rubber or spike tip. Ferrules are to be screwed on ball-joints on tripod leg edges. Turning rubber parts upwards will have spike tips to accommodate to different circumstances.
More Stability with Weight
There are several options to enhance stability of the tripod system including hanging a dive weight from the strap hole or jointing a dive weight by using a ball-joint on a tripod leg besides using a stone bag.
