The 3 Legged Thing Alan Carbon Fiber Monopod is a 5-section support that can be used for videography and sports photography, and can be used in areas where tripods are not allowed or cannot travel. Each of the 5 sections has a twist-lock that opens with a 1/4 turn, and fully extended, the monopod reaches a maximum height of 58.7". To travel with the 1.3 lb monopod, it collapses to a closed length of 17.7", which is suitable to store in any baggage or suitcase.
The top of the support features a Tri-Mount plate that allows accessories to be attched to any of the three open spurs, and a 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 reversible thread helps to mount either a head or camera to the top. A large rubber grip with water channels disperses moisture to maintain a firm hold on the monopod. In addition, a 3/8"-16 socket located at the bottom of the monopod allows a microphone or other accessory to attach, for use as a boom pole.
