      This spiked foot set allows me to replace the rubber tips that came with my Manfrotto tripod with spikes for shooting in the outdoors on slippery surfaces, while a twist later I can use the tripod indoors. The ability to remove the spiked tips quickly, allows me to re-install the rubber tips which are allowed on airlines while the spike feet travel in my checked-in luggage.

      Ok for outdoor, not for slippery floor

      I'm disappointed it slips on the floor. But I'm sure it's great when used outdoors.

          Great addition to new 055CXPRO4. If you carry your tripod hiking or just wandering around in the woods these feet offer better traction than the rubber feet.

            Back in the day these were standard on many Manfrotto tripods. They provides better traction outside. I used my tripod on uneven granite boulders and it stayed in place. THe rubber ubber feet are at least good as the ones that came with the 190CXPRO3. The only draw back is they add noticablyt to the weight of the my carbon fiber tripod.

              Comments about Manfrotto Retractable Spiked Foot Set (3):

              My tripod slides on certain surfaces like ice or packed snow, now it can dig in. The 190 tripods are light to start with, so any stability device is welcome. They can be a little boring too, but these feet make them seem more impressive.

              Installation is easy, but I was a little concerned how tight I could go before something stripped. They look metal in the photos, but are actually a hard plastic. The rubber feet are a durable rubber.

              Overall I'm happy with them. A simple item to improve a simple tripod.

                  I bought the 190XB tripod legs for my heavy spotting scope. The tripod is super sturdy-I'm so excited to have these spiked feet for the legs. 90% of the time, I use the tripod outside in the mountains. The spiked feet make my tripod even more stable in the uneven terrain.

                    Too bad Manfrotto don't include these on their tripods. I feel they are a must if you take your tripod outside at all.They work great, old feet a little hard to get off (they are glued on.These attach ouite easily, they do make the tripod slightly longer.

                      I have had my manfrotto tripod for many years in difficult and varied situations where due to hard use and accidents I had gradually lost all of the feet and was reduced to using the rubber caps. The caps are almost worthless and then I finally ordered in the replacement retractable spiked feet. I had forgotten how good they were. I use mine mostly with the spikes fully retracted but there are occasions when I need the spikes and I like the versatility of that. They work really well, were a snap to install and now I carry the little phillips screwdriver to keep them tight. I can change from spike to rubber foot in about 30 seconds if I need to. These were not cheap, but they appear to be quality and so far are working well.

                          I quite often photograph fungi in wet conditions and find the feet are great for preventing the tripod from slipping or sinking into soft, wet ground. The feet are really a must for all outdoor photography with a tripod.

                            The carbon fiber 190CX3 tripod should have come with spiked foot. Probably to keep the weight and cost down. Retractable spiked foot is very necessary for outdoor photography specially in rough terrain. A must for HDR photography. This attachment works great. Would have given 5 star if it was not so costly.

                              I shoot mostly Landscape Photos so I believe the spiked feet are just an accessory that Manfrotto forgot to include, proably because it would make the tripod weigh a slight bit more. How ever IMHO I think the added function far out weighs the weight increase.

                                I order it for my tripod 190XB with 802RC4 head.
                                The construction is strong and it fit perfectly to the legs of the tripod.
                                I find it also easy to install.
                                Efficient for outside and in house purpose.
                                It was the piece missing to be entirely satisfied by my tripod.
                                Now I am!

                                    Fit and finish is very good. Easy to install. A bit afraid of overtightening )cand cracking fiber tube) or undertightening (and losing in mud). Considering drilling hole through and inserting small pin to prevent easy off.

                                      This spiked foot set allows me to replace the rubber tips that came with my Manfrotto tripod with spikes for shooting in the outdoors on slippery surfaces, while a twist later I can use the tripod indoors. The ability to remove the spiked tips quickly, allows me to re-install the rubber tips which are allowed on airlines while the spike feet travel in my checked-in luggage.

                                        I don't see how anyone using a tripod outdoors can get by without spiked feet on their tripod. The situations I photograph in require the traction these spiked feet provide.

                                            I'm disappointed it slips on the floor. But I'm sure it's great when used outdoors.
