    I usually don't write reviews, but this product is so GREAT, I had to share the experience. I needed a rig that I could mount two small cameras on one tripod head (for recording sporting events where I needed a wide angle shot and a close up shot that tracked together). I know this is NOT the intended use of this product, however, if you are using small lightweight cameras and a heavy duty tripod with a solid head, this works great! Up until now I was using a homemade rig out of spare parts, and was eventually going to make a custom platform that was more sturdy. Then I discovered the Manfrotto 131DDB Accessory Arm. This item is everything I was looking for and more. It's extremely sturdy, incredibly functional, and easy to set-up and tear down!! The camera mounts, slide horizontally as well as pivot (i.e. tilt) on the arm to allow for easy alignment of two cameras. It also has mounts on both ends to mount additional accessories. All of the screws are 3/8-16 inch so you will need 3/8-16 to 1/4-20 screw adapters to mount standard accessories. I purchased (from B&H) two Desmond DTR-1 3/8-16 to 1/4-20 adapters that were a perfect match with this accessory arm. If you are going to mount this to a standard quick release plate, you will also need a reducing bushing (i.e. Manfrotto 148KN Reducing Bushing, or equiv). Again, keep in mind that this is NOT the intended use of this arm, but for light weight cameras and accessories, along with a good sturdy tripod, it worked for me fine. I would also recommend purchasing a small tripod bag to store the accessory arm and for easy transport to field events. This is one of the best purchases and pieces of equipment I own, and I'm sure it will be used extensively and diversely for many years!!

    The Manfrotto 131DD Cross Arm is a useful device for either mounting multiple cameras on one tripod or providing a means aim one or two cameras directly down. There are two "carriages" on which tripod heads may be mounted and slid back and forth so that, for example, two different cameras can be used to photograph the same scene. In addition, the ends of the arm have 3/8" screws onto which one or two other tripod heads may be attached. These could support cameras pointing down, or alternatively by rotating the head 90 degrees support two more cameras upright. Once set up properly, this device can be very versatile and useful.
    The overall construction is quite rugged and well made. However, there are some glaring oversights in the execution of the design. Normally, Manfrotto products are well thought-out, but someone really dropped the ball here. Fortunately, it is not too difficult to arrive at some work-arounds to deal with these shortcomings:
    1. The two movable carriages and the center cross arm holder all consist of two separate pieces of metal held together at one edge by two fixed screws, and on the other edge there is a single screw with a handle to open the pair to allow motion or to lock the screw to fix the carriages the cross arm in place. The problem is that as delivered the two sides are not well aligned, with the result that there is no well-defined surface on which a tripod head can be solidly affixed. In simplest form, there is a high spot at the dividing line between the two halves, so the tripod head can rock back and forth across this ridge, no matter how hard one tries to tighten the screws by hand.
    2. This problem is easily solved, at least as described above. For the carriages, loosen the hand screw completely and using a 4 mm Allen wrench loosen the two affixing screws just barely enough to allow the two halves to move slightly. Place a tripod head with a flat bottom on the carriage and tighten the center screw to pull the head firmly into place. This will assure that the two halves of the carriage match at the interface. Now tighten the two Allen screws completely, preserving this alignment. This is the first-order solution to the ridge problem.
    3. Now tighten the hand screw that would fix the location of the carriage on the arm. In turn, this brings to light the second ridge problem: In tightening the hand screw, the two pieces of metal bend a little and that splays out the two halves, forming a new ridge that is now "part of the design."
    4. If Manfrotto had been consistent in their tripod design, there would have been three grub screws on the bottom of the carriage. Their center posts have them, and affixing a tripod head to a center post is made very solid by tightening these screws that rest in little valleys on the bottom of the tripod head. These prevent the head from coming unscrewed in use and it also assures that it does not rock. However the carriages do not have such grub screws, and one is stuck with a "high center."
    5. The "right" design would have four screws at the top to clamp together two flat surfaces. This or some other method would give a useful lever arm to resist tightening the bottom hand screw and the concomitant effect at the top. This flexing may be the reason that grub screws are not used, because their efficacy would depend upon how much the hand screw was tightened, and it is possible that excessive forces could be applied to the head when tightening or loosening the hand screw.
    6. A simple, but crude fix is to make some small shims to put between the bottom of the tripod head and the top of the carriage. A discarded film box was cut into two pieces round the outside to match the circle of the carriage top and leaving a gap of about 2 cm between the two pieces for the ridge. These could be affixed with rubber cement to the top of the carriage to keep them from running away. At least for my unit, this fix was sufficient.
    7. There is a similar problem for the center support. The simple mismatch of the assembly can be addressed as above. When the hand screw is tightened, again there is no flat surface offered to the tripod column and there is severe wobbling. However, the shim solution described for the carriages will not work here, because it is not possible to hand tighten the affixing screw sufficiently to prevent the whole assembly from rotating on the tripod in use. Because of the long lever arm, even modest forces on the arm – or camera – are enough to overcome the friction of the center screw. In this case, however, one can use the grub screws of a Manfrotto tripod to provide more security. However, once again Manfrotto did not follow its normal design, and there are no little valleys on the bottom of the center support to provide positive restraint against rotation. Now one must rely on brute force to tighten the screws enough to keep things snug but not do damage either. There will most likely still be some slippage during use, because of the large lever arm. One must just live with it. (Yes, this solution conflicts with the previous speculation on why grub screws were not used for the carriages. I don't see an alternative here, however. In any case, the force that the simple screw tightened by fingers is much less than the screw with the handle.)

    Some side notes on the use of the cross arm:
    1. The arm and carriages slide very smoothly, and it appears that this may be in part due to what looks like talcum powder on the felt lining of the bearings. This is a very clever way to provide lubrication without a sticky mess. In the long run, however, it could be that the talcum needs to be replenished, but this is just speculation.
    2. Care must be exercised when loosening either the carriages, or especially the center holder to slide things. The reason is that if the load is unbalanced, the cameras may lurch forward or backward as the arm/carriage itself becomes free to rotate as well as slide. This would not normally be a problem with small, light cameras, but it could be serious with something large and/or heavy, particularly if they are "looking down," leading to an unbalanced load towards the front.

    The bottom line is that with the investment of a little hand work, this can be made into a very useful device, but without that investment, the wobbly nature will be unsatisfactory. Keep in mind that securing the center part depended upon the grub screws of the Manfrotto tripod design. The results may be less satisfactory if the arm is used with another tripod that does not have this facility or a logical equivalent thereof.

      great when in the studio or out and about....i put my camera on one side and my laptop ( on a table) on the other side....now i can see the focus and composition much clearer, since i'm viewing throught the macbook...when using lightroom, you can just concentrate on the larger screen image and trigger your camera from there...i'm tethered of course....definitely a winner...

        Great, solid piece of gear. I needed an option for mounting two cameras with limited real estate - and this option from Manfrotto filled the bill. Rugged, metal construction. Lots of flexibility. Might need to pair it with a couple of camera mount/plate options. Or a couple of simple head options. But, all-around, well worth the investment!

            Rig a laptop and your camera to a tripod. Let your client ooh an ahhhhhh in real time. Problems, additional weight and cell phone etiquette. Expect people to pull out a cell and take a pick of your monitor, effectively loosing sales or being disappointed before retouching. Still well made and I love it.

This would not normally be a problem with small, light cameras, but it could be serious with something large and/or heavy, particularly if they are "looking down," leading to an unbalanced load towards the front.

                  The bottom line is that with the investment of a little hand work, this can be made into a very useful device, but without that investment, the wobbly nature will be unsatisfactory. Keep in mind that securing the center part depended upon the grub screws of the Manfrotto tripod design. The results may be less satisfactory if the arm is used with another tripod that does not have this facility or a logical equivalent thereof.

                  Solid construction and many configuration options. You will have to buy or construct a spacer plate attachment to lock the thread in. I had a 3/8 inch panning base that I used to attach an iPad in a

                      This accessory arm is just the ticket if you need to mount multiple items on your tripod. It's rock-solid, and the large wheels and levers making tightening and loosening a snap. It's heavy, but that's a plus for stability.

                      Terrific product. Allows for mounting of ballheads on both ends plus Double platforms. The platforms can be removed independently of each other. Great flexibility in usage.

                        I use the 131DDB along with a 131DB for a tethering setup as well as unconventional tripod angles. It's sturdy and versatile.

                          This is a great addition to my tripod and has made it a lot more versatile in the ways i can set it up and use it. I also purchased the other Manfrotto arm and both together are unbelievably useful.

                            This is great for when you need to mount two cameras on one head. The piece is very well made, solid. The only thing I would change is that the middle piece is a little wide so the cameras (I was using 5D's) can't get as close as I would have liked.

                            I've been using this for mounting two and three cameras on. Really easy to use. Great construction. Stable. Glad I went with this one over other brands that were less expensive. Fits my Manfrotto heads tripods and acessories.
