Product Highlights
  • Custom Brackets Push-Bar Quick Release
  • Separate Tilt-Lock and Tension Knobs
  • Ideal for Use with Monopod
  • Precision-Machined Aluminum Head
  • Nearly ±90° Tilt

The Custom Brackets Tilt Head CB is a precision-machined aluminum head that was designed for use with a monopod. The head features a Custom Brackets quick-release system, which employs a push-bar to effect the release of a camera plate (not included) from the quick-release mechanism, for fast changes to your setup. The CB quick-release offers a noticeable positive feel when you install the head, confirming for you a successful rock-solid connection.

The head attaches to a monopod via the Tilt Head CB's 3/8"-16 thread. If your monopod has a 1/4"-20 stud, use a reducer bushing to make the conversion. The head features separate controls for tension (drag) and tilt-lock, which allows for extremely precise adjustments to the tilt. Tilt is possible a full 90° downward and nearly the same range upward.

The Tilt Head CB was designed for the Manfrotto 685B NeoTec monopod, but it will of course work with any other monopod – or a tripod, in case you do not need a panning capability. For the 685B, Custom Brackets offers Anti-Twist Pins for Manfrotto 685B (not included), which install on the bottom of the head to prevent the head from twisting at all once it's installed on the monopod.

      Comments about Custom Brackets Tilt Head CB:

      I used this head to build my own monopod setup for use with a Custom Brackets flash bracket. This is the same head used in the Custom Brackets Steadipod. It has both a tightening knob and a friction knob to control the amount of tilt. The unit does NOT rotate, which is something not required on a monopod.
