      The level came with no instructions so it took a few moments to figure out where to mount it. It's also smaller than I expected so I was skeptical of it's utility. In use, however, it exceeded my expectations. It's easier to see than a bubble in the head while you're setting the legs. Good addition to the tripod that saves $$$.

      Purchased this for my Gitzo 2531 Mountaineer tripod. Installation is straightforward, just unscrew the cap at the bottom of the center column, insert, and screw the cap back on.My version of the bubble level was a little hazy, possibly from the glue used to attach the bubble to the holder itself.

          Comments about Gitzo Bubble Level for Series 2 Tripods:

          I'm not sure why a bubble level is not built in to the base of the Gitzo tipod in the first place, but if you are doing panoramas, this is a good add-on.

          It's made of plastic, but up to the task when mounted to the underside of the tripod's centre post.

            Comments about Gitzo Bubble Level for Series 2 Tripods:

            I never realized how much I use this until it was gone. At some point the level popped out of the plastic and was missing so I have had to order a second one. It had lasted me several years until then.

              Perfect addtion to my Gitzo tripod just one more feature which makes my setup a bit more streamlined. No more guessing on level. This and my new spiked tripod feet make my Gitzo tripod very versitile if you don't have the spiked feet your missing out on a very nice addition. the pkg comes with 3 spikes that screw in and can tighten with a wrench, for those of you who lose the rubber feet this will not happen again with the spiked feet.

                      Easy to install
                      Just unscrew weight hook on bottom of center column and slip it on
                      and replace weight hook.
                      I find it works well enough side my tripod doesn't have a built in level
                      and neither did my head.

                            Purchased this hoping it would work in ground level set config (or while using a Markins base instead of the center column), only to learn that it only fits over the center column. I'm perplexed why my $200 Manfrotto aluminum legs had a built-in level yet my $600 Gitzo legs do not :(

                            Does the job. Rated 4 instead of 5 for 2 reasons

                            1. Pricey
                            2. No instructions on where to install it.

In use, however, it exceeded my expectations. It's easier to see than a bubble in the head while you're setting the legs. Good addition to the tripod that saves $$$.

                                  It was this or a new tripod with a level in the head. Works fine, still allows the legs to fold normally around the level. Allowed my to do panos and get excellent alignment.

                                    A great add-on for series 2 or old series 1 tripods without a built-in level. (I added mine to a 1227.) This level just slips onto the bottom of the center column. You must remove the hook, then re-attach it after attaching the level. Nests between the legs when the tripod is folded, so it takes no space. What could be easier?

                                      I used this Level with a Benro Tripod which was pretty much a knockoff of a Series 2 Gitzo. Since they are pretty much the same, it worked perfectly.
