    Vortex 400 reviews

    Tripod Adapter (for Binoculars with a 1/4"-20 Threaded Tripod Socket) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could Be Better I purchased the Vortex Viper HD 15x50 binoculars and this tripod adapter simultaneously. There is nothing structurally wrong with the adapter other than that it is difficult to attach to the 15- power binoculars because of the diameter of the 50mm objective lens. The tolerances are tight especially for individuals with larger fingers. The adapter can be attached and secures the binoculars well once attached, but it does take more time to attach them than it probably should. I don't think this would be a problem with the lower power binoculars because the gap between the lenses is greater on the lower-power binoculars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful Product This product works well for its intended purpose. I have used it with my Vortex Viper HD 15x50 binos to glass for game animals, and I have no difficulty sitting behind this setup for 8-12 hours a day. My biggest problem with it is that it is difficult to apply to the 15x50 binos because the space between the larger objective lenses is pretty tight, and it is difficult to get it screwed in because the knob is slightly too large for this application. If the knob were more narrow, it would save some frustration while applying this adapter. Overall it is a good adapter and well worth the money; it is just a little difficult to apply to a pair of binos with a large objective lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Useful This adapter works great for steadying binos on a tripod. I use this with my Diamondback 10x42s. It does the trick, but is difficult to get on and off given the tight space. I would recommend these if you plan to leave the binos on the adapter full time, but not so much if you plan to put it on and take it off frequently.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs Tweaking I just got the 15x56 Vulture HD which I'm very happy with. I found I can freehand on glassing up to 400 yards and closer but you most certainly want a steady base at anything further out. A flaw was I needed a pair of needle nose pliers to tighten up the Tripod Adapter as well as putting an extra washer to snug up the play that I was experiencing(not sure if I just didn't receive a washer or not?) Being its a pain to take on and off its little cumbersome and annoying to go from freehand to the tripod so it be nice to have the Adapter a bit more user friendly. Attaching to a quick disconnect is key from going to a window mount to a tripod. Hope this helps and good hunting...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must use accessory I bought this tripod adapter for a pair of Diamondback 10x50 binoculars. It can be a little difficult to install as other reviewers have mentioned, but it is definitely worth the effort. Mounting the binoculars to a tripod really increases the amount of time that you can spend glassing and by removing the shake caused by your hands, it really helps to make the picture appear even sharper. I used the tripod mount in a long range shooting competition in New Mexico and having it mounted steady not only reduced the fatigue from holding it to spot for other shooters, but made it possible to see the bullet trace on a number of the shots. I would definitely recommend a tripod mount if you are spending time glassing from a stationary position.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the price The adapter does not come with a thumbscrew as shown in the image. Instead, it has a twist blade. My item was received with multiple nicks and dents possibly due to it being sold in a thin plastic bag. Overall, the surface finish is poor. Lastly, my 20X60 binoculars are easily twisted out of position due to the minimal surface contact of the adapter.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to attach to diamondbacks without pliers Works well but it is difficult to attach to my diamondbacks (Great Binos). There is barely enough room for the screw knob/handle. I have to use needle nose pliers to tighten.
    Date published: 2017-07-08
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as the Binoculars You might see my Vortex Binocular review as well. My only knock on these, to me, is a big one. I got the adapter with the flat blade thumb screw even though the picture looks like a round knob. It is nearly impossible to get my fingers between the lenses to tighten the screw to my binoculars therefore when on the tripod they are not stable. In my mind that is the reason to put them on a tripod for the stability. I gave them two stars only because they do work, they just don't work well at all. Wish I could recommend these but I can't.
