    Comments about Gitzo GS5000 Thread Adapter:

    Needed to attach a 3/8in thread quick release plate to a 1/4 inch base. Works like a charm. Nicely machined so it scews in neatly and securely. But can be removed without problems. Simple. Nice. It works.

            Comments about Gitzo GS5000 Thread Adapter:

            This is a very simple adapter for tripod threads. I hesitate to judge the effort that goes into engineering this small part but it seems very expensive for such a small item. That said it works great and is a lot cheaper than buying a new tripod!!

                          This thread adapter tops all others. It smoothly adapts the 3/8 inch screw hole to 1/4 inch size with the twist of a screw driver. The beautifully machined stainless steel adapter fits snug and acommodated and complemented the 1/4 male thread of my aging tripod. A joy to use.

                            Got this thread adapter to mount my new Manfrotto 322RC2 GRIP ACTION BALL HEAD on my old Slik u212 tripod. Slik uses a 1/4" thread, Manfrotto uses 3/8" thread. Easy to install, strong, should hold up just fine.

                                    Pretty simple device but it was essential to converting the male threads on my tripod (1/4") to the female threads on my ball head (3/8").

                                    I was unable to locate one of these locally so I turned to B and H. They never fail to have what I need.

                                    I installed the device on my tripod and threaded on my ballhead. It worked great. I did notice when removing the ball head that the the GS5000 adaptor also wanted to unscrew. I applied two drops of Loctite (Blue) to the threads and haven't had anymore trouble. It works great and the blue Loctite will allow me to remove the adaptor in the future if i need to.

                                      If You are using a Gitzo Monitor platform with any other tripod you will need this 3/8 to 1/4 adapter. Nothing special about it and gave it 4 stars because of the price. A bit expensive for an adapter.

                                      Great for adapting those 1/4" tripod threads to 3/8"

                                      It is small, and expensive but it does the job well. You will want to get some locktite, or other adhesive that temporarily binds the threads of your tripod and adapter, otherwise you may try to pan and have your head unscrew.
