      This adapter is great. I use it attached to a monopod. It allows me a relaxed view through my porro-prism binocualars that are 10x and in need a steady hand.

      They have also allowed me to pretend I've got a 600mm telephoto camera lens. I just hold my camera phone, a Blackberry, to the rubber cup of the binos after focusing, and snap. Without fixing the binoculars to something steady via this adapter, such an opperation would be very difficult, if not impossible.

      Next purchase will probably be a tripod to free up the second hand that is quickly becoming occupied with wildlife cameraphone photography.

      It came with 2 screws. Tread on the screw with larger head is too bit to fit into the binocular with standard 1/4-20 socket. The others screw with smaller head was to tight for standard Allen key. I was very disappointed for the poor product quality, especially, that it is a Nikon branded product with a premium price.

            Comments about Nikon Tripod Adapter (for Binoculars with a 1/4"-20 Threaded Tripod Socket):

            This is a solid but lightweight adapter that works perfectly not only on Nikon binoculars but any binoculars with a standard 1/4"-20 threaded socket between the two objective lenses. I'm using this adapter successfully with my Pentax 10x50 PCF WP II binoculars.This will interest only a minority of people but I use a ballhead with a quick-release mechanism on my tripod. I've mounted a flat quick release plate on the bottom of the Nikon tripod adapter so that I can rapidly switch between having my camera vs my binoculars on the tripod. The Nikon tripod mount has a standard (1/4"-20) thread so you should be able to do this whatever brand/type of quick-release plate you use on your cameras.

              This is an inexpensive little accessory which is easy to carry and use. It is sturdy and well made. It fits the common photographic tripod and I have used a similar one with 15x70 binoculars.

              Great for binoculars that are just abit too heavy to hold hold steadily or for viewing fixed or slow moving objects.

                    If you want to mount your Nikon on a tripod, this is a necessity. It is a bit awkward to mount to the binoculars since the space is very limited, but it only takes a minute or two.

                      This adapter is a huge help when you are glassing for many hours at a time. Using it with a decent tripod takes all of the shake out your binos, even in high winds. Be sure to bring a multitool with a flathead screwdriver to get the best tightness out of the screw joint. Because most binos don't leave a lot of room between the objective lenses, it can be tough to hand tighten the screw unless you have one.

                          What can I say about a Nikon binocular tripod adapter other than it works as designed.

                          What is impressive is that - once again - BH has come through for me with flying colors. The correct product arrived at my doorstep in record time! In this day and age of slapping it together and calling it "good enough", this sort of attention to customer needs and satisfaction is exceptional.

                          BH is among my top "go to" companies and should be so for everybody.

                                              Strong and elegant enough.
                                              Holds my Action 12x50CF very nicely.
                                              Easy to use.

                                                Purchased adapter to use with monopod with swival tilt head with quick release plate. Plan to swap binoculars and cameras on top of monopod during cruise land tour to Alaska. Fits non-Nikon binoculars and accommodates user with narrow inter pupil distance.

                                                  I bought this binocular tripod adapter so I could use my tripod to hold my binoculars steady. It works great and you can get a much better and longer look without any movement of the binoculars. It is much easer on the arms for long time viewing. It also works good with another pair of larger binoculars that I have.

                                                    Easy to install and includes a socket for the twist-prevention peg that's included in some tripod heads.
                                                    Useful with a monopod as well as with a tripod.

                                                      I use this with my 12x monarch binos and it works good. My only comment is that my wife and I have different spacing between are eyes so when moving the width of the binoculars back and forth it becomes loose.
