    Aluminum Short Column for the RoadTrip Tripod is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MeFOTO Short Column for the RoadTrip Quality piece of machined aluminum that enables the Road Trip (RT) tripod to hold the camera as low as 7 3/8 inches above the surface (when bypassing the built-in stop-clicks), providing a platform to get low angled perspective shots. Takes less than 30-seconds to swap between the standard and short column. When using the RT's monopod configuration with the short column, the overall length is reduced by eight inches. The short column fits nicely in the interior zipper compartment of the Road Trip carrying case. A must-have accessory to expand the versatility of a quality tripod.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Addition For getting That Low To The Ground Shot! Unfortunately when you put the legs out to the widest setting on the MeFOTO RoadTrip tripod you have to raise the center column to keep it from hitting the ground keeping you from getting as low as you could with a shorter column. This short column lets you get that lower angle. I would have given it 5 stars but with the short column on you cant fold the tripod up all of the way to fit it into the bag the tripod comes with.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great with the monopod leg! I ordered this as I did not like the additional length the center column added when used in combination with the single leg as a monopod as it would not allow me to use it comfortably sitting on the ground. This allows it to be used much more comfortably and if you are just bringing the monopod with you a much more compact collapsed size. The only downsize is that there is not a carbon fiber version, however since it is relatively small in size it does not add much weight.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from DOES AS STATED! TO USE THIS YOU MUST REMOVE ANY HEAD FROM LONG SHAFT THAT CAME WITH TRIPOD AND THE SHAFT FROM TRIPOD. YOU MUST RE-INSTALL THE HEAD ON THE SHORT SHAFT RE-INSTALL ON TRIPOD.REVERSE THIS TO PUT THE LONG SHAFT AND HEAD BACK ON THE TRIPOD. THIS SHAFT IS MEANT TO GET YOU AND YOUR TRIPOD AT NEAR GROUND LEVEL. DOES THIS VERY WELL.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from handy accessory This short column is especially useful for making the Roadtrip into a monopod. It makes the monopod more normal with the padded grip in a mostly normal position (near the top), and the monopod not so ungainly. I do think they should include it with the tripod, but for the price it is worthwhile to get, I think.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge difference Something as minor as switching out your standard column for this short column makes a huge difference in terms of the angles you're able to achieve. With this you don't have to reverse your column to get that low angle shot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical accessory Very practical little accessory for the MePhoto travel tripod. Definitely adds to its versatility. And it fits just fine in the zipper pocket of the tripod case. Works with the tripod as well as the monopod conversion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fine option The short column is a great accessory for the MeFoto RoadTrip when the need arises to get low to the ground...the combination of the standard center column with the short column provides great flexibility.
