NatureScapes Safety Plate for Gitzo Tripods - GSP55
The NEW NatureScapes Safety Plate for Gitzo tripods is designed for ultimate security.
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 and prior Gitzo 35 series Carbon fiber tripods as well as some older tripods. See the GSP-35 model.
The GSP-55 is for use with the GT5541LS and the older GT1548. It is not compatible with, not needed for, the latest 2012 models such as the 5532LS etc.
The GSP 55 comes with two screws for installation; both are 3/8 inch in diameter. The smaller screw is 1 1/4 inches long and the longer screw is 1 3/4 inch long.
