The adapter connects to the binocular using a 1/4" threaded bolt with a textured thumbscrew; and the adapter mounts to any standard tripod 1/4"-20 socket. This item comes in clamshell packaging and is backed by Bushnell's two-year warranty.

    Bushnell 161002CM reviews

    Tripod Adapter for Binocular (Black) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bushnell binocular tripod adapter First off this adapter is really light duty and small. It would be good for roof prism binoculars where the barrels are close together. It would fit a lot of larger binoculars with this particular problem, but is too light and small to be very stable. Mine came with the threaded hole on the base slightly angled out of alignment with the base, and the threads were so rough it was unusable without access to a tool in my machine shop to basically re-thread it. This could be a one-off problem piece that I was unlucky to get, but I cannot recommend this adapter. If it had cost more, I would return it. As it is, I reworked the threads and can make some use of it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality, fits Vortex Diamondback 12x50 well Overall well made. Minor problem is the screw that attaches to the binos is not secured and can screw all the way out and be lost (happened before when I left my older version of this adapter attached to my tripod while hiking). After losing the screw on my first Bushnell adapter, I tried tripod adapters from Vortex and Celestron. I have a pair of Vortex Diamondback 12x50 binos. Both adapters extend into a flat paddle for finger tightening. However, due to the narrow space between the barrels of my binos, the Celestron product didn't fit at all and I needed a pair of needle-nose pliers to attach the Vortex adapter (I was surprised that Vortex made an adapter that was practically unusable with their own binoculars). I ended up going back to Bushnell: there is enough room to finger tighten the adapter most of the way and because I typically have a knife in my pocket I can tighten it the final bit without needing to carry pliers. Just have to be a bit more careful not to lose the screw.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing ever I went to Yellowstone national park and took a bus tour to see wildlife. Some had spotting scopes but with this little guy I was able to see so much and my tremor was not an issue. Thanks so much

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk -- does not fit my Bushnells Fits securely to tripod. Does NOT securely fit to Bushnell Trophy X50 12x50 binoculars. They wobble in a moderate breeze. While the adapter's screw attaches firmly to the binoculars, the screw does NOT cinch the adapter to the binoculars, leaving a small gap. This gap allows the wobble.
