      Comments about Manfrotto 319SH Short Hi Hat Locking Handle:

      Great product, really sturdy construction, shipped fast, does exactly what it's supposed to do. Not sure why Manfrotto even bothers having their standard longer handles.

      That's about it, pretty good, nothing exciting, I mean it didn't save my marriage or fix my hip or anything but it does it's job exactly like it's meant to.

        Comments about Manfrotto 319SH Short Hi Hat Locking Handle:

        We do a lot of commercial work with the camera getting down and low. With our hi-hat we can mount the Sachtler or Manfrotto heads and never worry about it.

              Comments about Manfrotto 319SH Short Hi Hat Locking Handle:

              I bought this item as a replacement handle for my 100mm half ball that we use with our 5' MYT Slider. The handle that originally shipped was a bit longer, but when lost and needed replacement I found this gem. It's smaller and leaves less of a footprint in my bag. At first sight I was unsure if it would thread through the entire screw attached to the 100mm half ball, but rest assured it did. The price is great as well. Thanks B&H!

              3.5" long - Perfect Fit for Risers

                  Comments about Manfrotto 319SH Short Hi Hat Locking Handle:

                  After discovering that the stock handle on my Manfrotto 504HD (at 5.5" long) won't fit into the Varavon Half Ball Riser I needed to mount it on, I contacted B&H to find a shorter handle.Just got this one - it fits perfectly and has the build quality I expect from Manfrotto. Really, I have no idea why the stock handle needs to be so long, as this is ideal.In case anyone's wondering (as neither I nor the guys at B&H could find the info anywhere), this handle is a total of 3.5" long (including the locking plate).

                              Purchased to complement mounting my Manfrotto 509HD video fluid head to a Cinevate hi-hat. Original handle for regular set of sticks will NOT fit. This smaller handle will however fit in the space provided, adhering snugly to the base of the 100mm bowl and provided a firm grip allowing for pan and tilt uninterrupted. Could not be Happier. Thanks BandH.

                                  Comments about Manfrotto 319SH Short Hi Hat Locking Handle:

                                  I was unable to use my Manfroto Tripod head (526) with several High Hats.
                                  The mounting handle is too long, and prevents the high hat board from a level footing.
                                  Although the original handle makes for a quick level while on a standard tripod, this replacement will always be with me for low angle shots.
