Product Highlights
  • Provides Extra Support
  • Prevents Twisting

This is the Naturescapes GSP-35 Safety Plate for Gitzo Tripods. It is meant to be used under the tripod's mounting plate, between it and the tripod head. The aluminum plate provides extra support and prevents twisting and loosening which might result in damage to valuable equipment.

The GSP-35 is designed for use with Gitzo's 2008 or prior Series 3 models; for example: GT3530S, GT3530LS, GT3541LS, GT3541XLS etc. Basically, it is compatible with any tripod that was made before 1998 in this series that employs Gitzo's SafeLock plate. The GSP-35 is also for use with Gitzo's older tripod models that begin with 13xx, such as the GT-1325, GT1348, etc.

The plate is not compatible and not needed for the latest 2012 Gitzo models such as the 3532LS etc.

        Nice fit and piece of mind. I've never had a problem with the plate loosening but there's always the 1st time. I do miss not having the hook and don't like Naturescape's suggestions. I'll have to come up with something.

                Great product and will keep my tripod and camera safe. I wish Gitzo solved this problem earlier and did recall. The instruction manual is not clear and terminology is for handyman instead of for photographers.

                    I purchased this product to give myself more peace of mind when carrying my Gitzo tripod with my 500VR over my shoulder. I am confident that my camera and lens won't be falling with this safety plate attached to the tripod.

                    The only downside was that I didn't own the wrenches necessary to remove the original brass bolt from my Gitzo tripod. Fortunately, a neighbor had the correctly sized wrench...and after that the installation took just a couple of minutes.

                                Kind of expensive for what it is, but it is machined well and more importantly fits and functions perfectly. Am I happy about buying this for an $800 tripod, you bet not. But when your carrying $6000 worth of equipment on a tripod over your shoulder who wants to take a chance.

                                  A safety plate for one of the most expensive tripods out there... Seems sort of counter-productive, but do you know what? My center post was extension was off of my tripod for a short time, and my expensive digital camera took the opportunity to dismount from my tripod at a height of about 6.5 feet.

                                  Fortunately, it was caught by someone nearby.

                                  Of *course* I bought the plate. I believe in insurance.

                                    Easily attached to my 3541LS the Naturescape safety plate provides additional security for those times when a gimbal and long lens are mounted and the rig is put over your shoulder.

                                      Comments about Naturescapes Safety Plate for Gitzo Tripods:

                                      I just bought a Gitzo 3541LS from B&H knowing about the base plate problem (the possibility of a loose base plate tension screw allowing the camera, lens and ballhead to fall off). One screw loose and you could lose everything; a really bad design flaw.

                                      The NatureScapes Safety Plate is a very simple solution to the potential problem. You just remove the hook from under the Gitzo base plate, slot the safety plate in and tighten the supplied screw with a 9/16" socket wrench. It takes less than half a minute and you never have to think about this again. The plate has beautiful build quality and is supplied with a quality S30400 stainless steel bolt, it fits beautifully and is thin, light in weight and hardly noticeable.

                                      Highly recommended for all 3 and 5-series Gitzo Systematic owners!
