The Platypod Pro Base Twin Pack is constructed of a 4mm thick plate of aircraft grade aluminum measuring 3"x5". Solidly welded through this base is a 3/8 inch titanium screw to accommodate most professional tripod ball heads. This allows one to attach the plate to the ball head by simply rotating either one, tool-free. Bolt placement is ideally balanced to allow mounting of a pro tripod head. This will easily accommodate professional DSLR's. Large telephoto lenses can be used as well but mounting with the tripod collar ring of such a lens is recommended. Attachment to a piece of 3/4" plywood with common wood-screws will support even the largest sports lenses! A second, 1/4" titanium screw is attached at the other end of the plate to allow placement of smaller devices such as a video mike, transmitter, flash accessory shoe, etc. There are three threaded holes in the plate to optionally attach small spike/screws with small rubber caps allowing the photographer to balance the plate sturdily on an uneven surface such as a boulder. The plate also has four un-threaded holes to allow permanent or semi-permanent attachment of the plate to any wood plank, table, wall or ceiling. In fact, the Platypod Pro can used as a base for any device with a 3/8" or ¼" tripod type threaded hole. This includes/umbrella brackets, Smartphone/tablet supports and professional microphones using the appropriate adapters.
