            Used to attach a Nikon 10x50 Action Extreme ATB Binocular (model # 7245) to a Manfrotto mounting plate. Can't really tighten very well with these particular binoculars. It is not a big problem, and I don't know the reason. Perhaps a rubber washer is needed. Nevertheless, it works well. It is made of metal (it looks like cast iron).

            Comments about Barska Binocular Tripod Adaptor:

            I use with 16X binoculars on a Vanguard tripod. This device allows me to FIRMLY place my binocs onto tripod w/o wiggle. The male screw that goes into most female binoc. screw thread is not long enough and will not allow a FIRM tightening of binoc to adapter. This adapter has a slightly longer male screw so that you may firmly attach same! CAUTION! Do not overtighten or you may de-thread the binoculars fem. thread. Use caution and "touch" when screwing into binocs and you'll be fine. Most people reading this probably know this w/o having to be told however, there is always a neophyte or two amongst us thus,...use with aforeto-mentioned caveat!

                  This is a rugged adapter. But be sure you've got room to use it with your binoculars.

                  The mount is fully 0.400" thick and may interfere with pushing your binoculars in to the lower interocular limit. The thumbscrew is a bulky 0.850" and may not even allow the binoculars to be mounted at all.

                  wanted product for using Nikon 10x50 Action Extreme binocs to look at distant birds and moon, planets, and star formations. Found it easy to attach to binocs and tripod. Steadiness depends on mass of tripod used: my binocs are fairly heavy, so need a big tripod (I have a SLIK U-212). Cost was only $ dollars.

                            A tripod is pretty essential when using binoculars for stargazing, and for the low price, this Barska tripod adaptor fully fits the bill. I do not have huge binos (only 8x40), so my requirements were not terriby strict.

                            I am using it with a Vanguard Endeavor ED 8x42, and am very pleased with its quality design, materials, workmanship, and price. I have added a thin rubber washer (purchased separate from Home Depot) in between the adopter and binocular to keep the binocular steady with the adopter. I like it so much so that I purchased another of this adopter for my second binocular, replacing a Nikon branded tripod adopter.

                                It makes stargazing a pleasure. Now my binoculars and tripod are as solid as a rock. (No shaking.)

                                  This Barska model is made of metal and seem's like it will hold up well. These binocular tripod adapter mount's are useful when you are using high powered binocular's. They are also useful (providing your binocular has a screw off cap hiding the threaded socket on the front of the hindge bridge?) when you are going to be watching a specific target for long period's of time. Say a bird's nest, an animal's den, a backyard bird feeder, etc. Especially as you get older and your hand's may tend to tremble a little. [For me: that happen's when I try to hold really steady a pair of good 10X42 binocular's, or my 10X50 binocular's.] I can hold steady my 7X42 or my 8X42 binocular's pretty much with no problem. But, 10X or larger just magnifies every little tiny movement so much you loose focus and clairity. This mount really help's if you have a need for it? You have to make sure it fit's between the barrel's of your binocular's when mounted, and also let's you close down the barrel's close enought to fit your eye's? It takes a little bit of doing & time to put it on and take it off, and reajust everything each time if not left on all the time. And it's really just too bulky to leave on all the time. Like they all are, except maybe for the Meopta quick release model. (But, the Meopta is pretty darn expensive at [$] something dollars! The Meopta is very well made & designed though.) You should mount this, or any binocular tripod adapter mount to a quick release plate for whatever tripod head you are using. This way you can quickly disconnect it from your tripod and hand hold your binocular's when you need to. When you're done for the day, you can unscrew the adapter and store it in whatever pouch you may have for it. And your binocular's will then fit back in thier case, if that's were you store them for protection. All in all it's a pretty neat little piece of equipment if you have a use for it? And at under [$] dollar's from B&H Photo, why not give it a try.

                                        This one is very solid all metal at a great price.

                                              This item is great. It is metal construction, sturdy, and holds my 70x144 binoculars fine. The device fits on the binocs perfectly, which is a bonus since these binocs have very little space between the tubes because the optics are so large. If you are interested in these, you may wish to order them QUICK because they have been discountinued by the manufacturer. The construction of the item sent by B&H was metal, a light alloy probably aluminum but definately NOT plastic.

                                                This binocular tripod adapter was exactly what I needed to be able to use my 20x100 without having to hold them, making my star gazing much easier and much more comfortable. I've used B&H several times before with the same results--excellent service, on time delivery, and the right product for my needs. I'd recommend them to anyone who needs anything they sell.
