The Larson Electronics MM-3 Aluminum Tripod with Magnetic Base is built to provide stability and a reliable platform for mounting cameras, night vision devices and related equipment on civilian vehicles, armored vehicles, humvees, tanks, boats, and anywhere a ferrous metallic surface is available.
The MM-3 Aluminum Tripod with Magnetic Base is designed to provide a versatile and stable mounting platform for cameras, night vision devices, binoculars and other similar equipment that will withstand rugged use and handling. This magnetic base tripod can support 40lbs and will hold equipment in place even under rough driving conditions. Each 5" diameter magnetic foot pad has a 200 lbs grip, giving this tripod a total of 600 lbs of gripping force on ferrous metallic surfaces. Full tripod leg and magnetic mounting pad articulation allows operators to attach this tripod to uneven surfaces and still retain the ability to position equipment for maximum effectiveness and stability.
This tripod is constructed of anodized aluminum, with a 7.781 inch long center post supporting a 5 inch wide by 6 1/2 inch long equipment mounting platform that can be extended to increase total tripod height from 10 1/2" to approximately 18" in height. Each solid aluminum support leg is adjustable with 90 degrees of movement and each magnetic foot is connnected to the leg via a ball stud allowing 20 degrees of movement and 360 articulation. A main post platform measuring 3/4 inch thick by 7 1/2 inches in diameter provides a rugged central connecting point for the tripod legs and adjustable mounting post.
The post attached mounting platform will accomodate standard mounting cameras and other devices and can be adjusted up and down by loosening a thumbscrew located on the side of the main post platform. The mounting platform is predrilled with two 3/8 inch diameter mounting holes and two 2 inch long x 1/4 inch wide slide slots to accomodate most standard mount cameras, lights and night vision devices.
This magnetic mount tripod is built to Navy SPAWAR specifications, weighs under 3 lbs, and is constructed of anodized aluminum with stainless steel hardware for protection against corrosion.
