Davis & Sanford Traverse TR-553-228 Tripod wi... Overview

The Traverse TR-553-228 Compact Aluminum Tripod with Ball Head from Davis & Sanford combines a lightweight (2.6 lb) tripod with a ball head that can hold 10 lb, and reach a maximum height of 53". The tripod's legs can be inverted 180­° so that the ball head is concealed within the legs, making the folded height only 12" long.

The Arca-type compatible ball head has a locking knob to control the ball movement and a separate locking knob for the panning movement. It sits atop five-section aluminum legs which have twist locks, allowing for quick adjustment to their height. The center column's height is also adjusted by twist locks, and it has a ballast hook on the bottom of the column for extra stability. A padded carrying case is included to protect your tripod during transport.

The ballast hook allows you to hang a weight, such as a sandbag or camera bag, providing additional stability when you're operating with heavy loads, on uneven ground, or in windy conditions.
Each leg is independently adjustable, and can be locked in three different angles.
Ball head features one bubble level to help achieve level horizons.

I have just returned from my trip to Alaska, through my excitement, I lost my quick connect plate. I have tried to find a replacement. What type do I need?
Asked by: Suzanne
The Davis & Sanford Traverse TR-553-228 tripod is compatible with any brand of QR plate as long as the plate is Arca Swiss compatible. The Induro PU-50 would be very similar in size to the plate that came with your tripod. Please take a look at the following link: https://bhpho.to/2CdgXR3

Planning on using this for backpacking/wildlife/scenery photography. With a Canon T5 and Canon IS 100-400 lens, will this tripod be able to hold the weight with the lens extended to the 400 length without tipping over??
