The Manfrotto 204SCK3 Suction Cups with Retractable Spiked Feet (a set of 3) fit on their "D20.4" carbon fiber 20.4mm outer diameter tube found on the 055CX3 and 055CXPRO3 tripods.

The suction cups increase the 055 tripod's effective footprint by ~20x, yielding a significant increase in stability when needed for certain surfaces.  Retract the rubber cup to reveal a steel tip which provides a firm footing on soft ground.

These tripod feet can be removed and replaced at will, even in the field.

Fits the 055CX3 and 055CXPRO3 tripods
Broad, rubber feet great for hard, slippery surfaces

    Suction Cups/Retractable Spike Feet (Set of 3) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Helpful... Until You Lose One I love having these big suction-cup feet on my tripod! The key element here is that the rubber foot attaches by fitting over/around a (retractble) metal ball. (Similar to the ball head you might have on top of your tripod.) At its best, this allows the foot to easily swivel and adapt to almost any surface you may encounter. For example, setting up along the edge of a river where the bank consists of baseball-sized stones: instead of having to search for a spot that the feet would be stable, I mostly just had to look for where the shot would look best. Wherever that happened to be, it was simple to set the tripod in place, because those rubber feet just swiveled to the perfect angle, gripped onto the sides of the stones. Easy. Now, The Warning: The same design that makes these rubber feet easily moveable also makes them easily REMOVABLE. Which is fine when you choose to take them off. It's less pleasant, however, when you're hiking to your destination and then, without you noticing at all, they brush up against something (a branch; your arm) and one of the rubber feet just comes right off. And if one does fall to the ground, you may have quite a challenge finding a small, round, bouncy, dull-black object. Overall, the feet coming off wouldn't be quite so frustrating if replacements were available -- I would just keep a couple extra in my bag -- But They Are Not. There is no way (that I've found) to order just the rubber feet. At this point, if you lose one rubber foot, replacing it requires you to purchase an entire retractable spike foot unit. So, if you get these, you'll love them. But be very careful not to lose one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maximized grip perfect for any surface Replaced the original cups with these and they make my older bogen/manfrotto tripod much more steady. It just increases the surface area to grip to the ground because it conforms to the angle of the surface whether it is flat or not. The difference is huge. I do weddings videos and these will work great in all venues. One aspect that seems a bit worrisome is that these are flexible rubber material and the part between the pivot ball and the rubber cup can come off with slight pull. Many times I carry lighting stands and other tripods in a cart and I am sure these rubber cups will bump off at times. If manfrotto had made them in abs or metal and just added the rubber layer on the bottom would have worked better in my opinion. Over all, an excellent upgrade to my tripod and I am satisfied with its firmer grip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement! My new Manfrotto carbon fiber tripod had plastic feet that kept slipping in wood and tile floors.� After some research I found these replacement suction cup feet.� They are not truly suction cups, but they are large, wide and add stability / traction on slippery surfaces.� They also have retractable spikes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice upgrade for old tripod I have the older Manfrotto 3021BN. I measured the diameter of the legs and bought the correct size of these feet. Wow, a great upgrade from the ancient round plug/covers that were on my tripod. Now the legs don't slide on the floor. So far I've only used these indoors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suction Cups/Retractable Spike Feet I use the feet on my Manfrotto Tripod for extra support and reduce movement! Things that I like about them is that they increase the contact area and support that the tripod rest on! Which help against camera shake!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would purchase this product again Great for replacing the rubber feet that come with the tripod. It really stabilizes the tripod on most surfaces. They are a little bulky, but I knew this when I purchased them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good product This is a really good product, but the only pros is that if you have a very thin tripod legs it won't be able to install it because it bigger
