- For Monopods with 3/8"-16 Socket Thread
- Adds Stability to Monopods
- Folding Legs for Convenient Transport
- Integrated Locking Ball-Joint
The SBM-001 Stabilizing Base for Monopods from Robus screws into most monopods with a 3/8"-16 threaded socket and offers enhanced stability while shooting with a monopod. The three folding legs open and lock into place when it's time to shoot, then conveniently fold up along the monopod for easy transport. Nonslip rubber feet provide extra traction on slick surfaces like gym floors or pool decks. The integrated ball joint allows the camera to be swiveled and tilted without losing the advantage of the monopod's stability. The ball joint lock prevents the monopod from tilting under a heavy load for greater control and can lock to a fixed position for extra control and stability. The ball joint's friction control allows the base's flexibility to be adjusted to suit the weight of the camera and lens combination. The legs unlock with the push of a button for rapid deployment, then fold up along the monopod, adding only minimal length to the rig. When removed from the monopod, these lightweight legs fold up to a compact 6.3", so they'll easily fit into a gear bag, back pack, or even a jacket pocket.

What compound can be safely used to lock the male ...
What compound can be safely used to lock the male threads of the three legged base (they're metal) to the female threads of a Robus monopod (they're plastic)? Thanks to the community for your help!
The manufacturer does not list a recommendation for a compound to lock the threads of the Robus SBM-001 Stabilizing Base for Monopods. While not an item carried/recommended by B&H, a compound that is designed for use with metal and plastic such as the Loctite 42540 Blue 425 Assure Plastic Fastener Threadlocker may work for your stated usage needs.
