NatureScapes Safety Plate for Gitzo Tripods - GSP35
The NatureScapes Safety Plate for Gitzo tripods is designed for ultimate security and is in stock now!
The combination of a telephoto lens, teleconverter, camera, flash, and tripod head is very heavy. When carrying a tripod over the shoulder, this weight puts additional stress on the tripod plate. After numerous discussions and requests by photographers, we have responded by developing a product that provides additional support to the Gitzo top plate, while offering "peace of mind." Our plate is custom designed, machined, & manufactured especially for NatureScapes using aerospace industry 6061 anodized aluminum, along with two stainless steel bolts - which bolt you will use depends on your tripod model. Not pictured the plate is anodized - not unfinished as shown.
The plate is a perfect fit, positioned snugly below the existing Gitzo plate, inside the "basin." Once installed, the Gitzo plate can not move or loosen, therefore preventing the head & photo equipment from falling. The plate is also available in another size to fit the 2008 Gitzo 55 series Carbon fiber tripods as well as some older tripods; see the GSP-55 model.
The GSP-35 is designed for use with Gitzo's 2008 or priot series 3 models; for example: GT3530S, GT3530LS, GT3541LS, GT3541XLS etc. Basically, it is compatible with any tripod that was made before 2008 in this series that employs Gitzo's SafeLock plate. The GSP-35 is also for use with Gitzo's older tripod models that begin with 13xx, such as the GT-1325, GT1348, etc.
The plate is not compatible, not needed for, the 2012 Gitzo models such as the 3532LS etc.
The GSP 35 comes with two screws for installation; both are 3/8 inch in diameter. The smaller screw is 1 inch long and the longer screw is 1 3/4 inches long.
