      Does not fit 680b

      By Michel P Cote

      from St-Irenee Qc. Canada

      Comments about Manfrotto Retractable Spiked Foot:

      To big. I had to glue a round plastic shim with epoxy, before putting the foot.
      I probably misread the specs... With the modification, works fine.
      Don't forget to retract spike before going indoors !

      Nice addition to Manfrotto Monopod

      By Jeff

      from North Andover, MA

      Comments about Manfrotto Retractable Spiked Foot:

      With the rubber foot retracted, you have a solid spike at the foot of the monopod. Lower it, and you have as sticky a foot as if the original rubber end cap was still attached. The foot is easy to install, and the threads on the spike are crimped to keep the rubber foot from inadvertently coming off. (Admittedly, it may look like the threads are stripped - but this is a feature, not a bug.)

            Comments about Manfrotto Retractable Spiked Foot:

            I lost the factory foot on my monopod and replaced it with this one. The retractable spike is nice because it grips well on soft surfaces when extended or hard surfaces when retracted. Also, I don't see this foot coming off and getting lost like the original.

              Best Uses

              • With Manfrotto monopod

              Comments about Manfrotto Retractable Spiked Foot:

              This has worked very well for me, especially on the hard packed clay soil in our region.
              No problems at all, just screw/unscrew rubber foot to use the spkie or screw it the opposite direction fot the rubber foot.
              Very happy with the product.

                  A small but important item - rotating foot/spike for the 681B monopod. Well made and makes quite a difference when a large lens is being used.
