Product Highlights
  • Convert 3/8"-16 Thread for 1/4"-20 Screw
  • Replacement Part for Oben Tripod Heads

This 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 Reducer Bushing from Oben allows you to convert any standard 3/8"-16 thread for the insertion of a standard 1/4"-20 screw. This way you can, for instance, mount a professional-style head with a 3/8"-16 threaded hole on a tripod that has a 1/4"-20 screw.

The bushing is a replacement part for Oben heads, and it will work with all Oben monopods and tripods also.

            Comments about Oben 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 Reducer Bushing:

            I bought a SIRUI ball head with a 3/8"-16 thread for a Slik Carbon tripod with a 1/4"-20 mounting screw. I also bought this reducer to convert the 1/4" thread to 3/8" thread. This fits perfectly to hold the ball head ridgidly.

            It fit, so therefore it worked.

                Not all tripod screws are the same, so you need a reducer adapter thingy to make things work.

                    I used this reducer to adapt a pistol grip tripod head to and existing tripod. It worked perfectly. Installed easily. There is nothing that isn't great.

                        When you need it you gotta have it,cant use the tripod without the proper adapter.

                              It's an adapter bushing. It fits nicely into what it's supposed to and it's machined well. What else is there to say?

                                I bought an Oben tripod that came with a bushing that was garbage, it literally fell apart. This one seems to be much stronger

                                    Extremely simple to use and very economical. Only wish this was included with every device (i.e., tripod/monopod heads) that is 3/8" as all DSLRs are 1/4".

                                                it does what it is supposed to do. It is far cheaper than the Gitzo one, does the same job.

                                                        Used this to attach a "Manfrotto 128RC QR Micro Fluid Head" to a "CowboyStudio Shoulder Support Pad for Video Camcorder Camera DV / DC." Worked great.

                                                              If didn't work, they wouldn't sell it. It's a bushing. I do like the slot for a flathead screw diver.
