The Upper L-bracket attaches to a Pole Tripod Adapter Upper Unit. The Lower L-bracket attaches to a Nodal Ninja rotator, Pole Tripod Adapter Lower Unit, or the pole base directly. Upper L-bracket requires new batch of Tripod Adapter for Pole 1/ 2/ 3 Upper Units (SKU ending with L), that have 4 anti-twisting sockets added. Older tripod adapter can be easily modified by drilling 4 sockets.
Each bracket adds a 3/8" socket for mounting the tripod adapter/ rotator/ pole base to the tripod top plate in 90 degree angles. The pole is oriented horizontally when mounted. Two tripods are needed for operation.
The Pole Tripod Adapter Upper Unit allows the pole to pass through and be locked. The Lower L-bracket is tightened to the base of the pole. A supported rotator can be mounted in between for indexed rotation. A MECHA automated rotator is recommended to drive the pano head or camera directly at the other end of the pole while the pole is locked from rotation.
Travel Pole is less rigid and is not recommended for horizontal application. However, a plastic adapter ring can be made for using Travel Pole on Tripod Adapter for Pole 1/ 2. Contact us or your dealer for a special order.
Tripod Adapter for Travel Pole is not supported. Use one for Pole 1/2 with custom adapter ring instead.
