The tripod can be secured to the ground or to other mounting structures. Each leg has a bolt hole that can be used to bolt the tripod to a roof top or other mounting platform. When used in the field, a screw in anchor system is used to hold the tripod in place. The anchor helps to prevent any accidental tipping of the tripod and extends the wind load characteristics of the tripod.
The legs can be quickly folded up or set into place using the removable locking pins located in each tripod leg centre mount.
Optional Items Include the 7221 lightning rod and grounding kit. If required a round fibre carry case is also available.
