Leg Loks for Manfrotto 190 Pro, 290 Pro, 055 Pro and BeFree Tripods.
NEW UNIVERSAL MODEL FOR ALL TRIPODS!

I first came up with the Leg Lok idea over 4 years ago and have been refining the design over a period of time and test shooting using various prototypes. I wanted to make it lightweight, easy to fit but with repeatable results.

Currently over 200 LEG LOKs are now in use by Google Photographers worldwide, and trusted by the largest Agencies in both the UK and the US. My Tip Kit is standard with the USA’s largest team of shooters… Business Photos America headed by Frank Clarke

4 versions are now available one for the Manfrotto 190Pro, 290Pro and a larger one for the O55pro and Manfrotto BeFree, all work exactly the same, they feature a unique design with 6 degree leg rests to bring those legs in under the 8mm lens FOV. The NEW UNIVERSAL MODEL works with 95% of all tripods and has a large range of column adjustments.

They are quite complicated to print and both have an inner retaining O Ring which stops it from moving on your Centre Column. The price reflects the time it takes to produce each one and the ABS used in their creation. Each one is Test Fitted to my own Tripods so I know you will love them when they arrive at their new homes.

If you have a different tripod or may be thinking of changing your tripod in the future then LEG LOK UNIVERSAL is the daddy for 2016!

HOW IT WORKS 190pro, 055pro & BeFree models

Each LEG LOK is 3D printed to order and may take up to 10 days to produce from ordering.
All orders go into a queuing system, first come, first served basis
Due to the nature of 3D printing some pieces may differ slightly but this is completely normal and will not effect the operation of the product. I have several years experience designing and printing 3D parts and each piece has been designed and made for strength, hence why LEG LOK 190 takes 2hrs to print and LEG LOK 055 takes nearly 3hrs Each piece is solid ABS for strength and your LEG LOK and available in black.

You now have a choice!! If you have a 190 pro, 290 pro, 055 pro or BeFree you can use the standard models for these. They are quicker to fit, easily moved and cheaper.

The new LEG LOK UNIVERSAL will fit both the 190 pro and 055 pro and many other tripods so much more versatile. It is more expensive, once fitted it’s locked in place and needs a screwdriver to be removed. The choice is yours!

HOW TO FIT
PLEASE CHECK YOUR TRIPOD BEFORE ORDERING!!!
The Manfrotto 190 and O55 use a standard size Centre Column, The LEG LOK fits onto the centre column!
Normally most 190 and O55 tripods have a small push in button which you simply push in and slide the LEG LOK up into position.
Stacks Image 4659
Some O55 Pros have a screw off Centre Column, you unscrew the bottom and then remove the whole column and slide the LEG LOK through the top of the pole, then simply re-assemble. If you are unsure about your tripod please email before buying so we can check you will be able to fit the device.
Unscrew the bottom of the O55 pro Centre Column

LEG LOK UNIVERSAL

Universal means Universal… I have been working on this model for some time, 19 Prototypes, 3.5 hours print time,16metres of filament, 3 bolts, 3 Nylocks and 3 Endstops goes into each Leg Lok Uni. It’s finally here and I love it!

Designed for a wide scope of tripods, they work on round aluminium tripods, manfrotto hex column tripods, carbon fibre tripods with a working diameter range of 10mm to 36mm. Tested on Manfrotto, Velbon, Gitzo, Benro to be honest every tripod I’ve got it on, it fits and works as it should!

Here you’ll find out which model to choose and why I think the new Universal works so well with a variety of tripods.

FITTING LEG LOK UNIVERSAL

The Leg Lok Universal Kit comes fitted with the standard 20mm bolts and end caps which is the ones needed for standard Tripods such as the 190pro up to 055pro (24mm - 28mm or larger) It also comes with extra 15mm bolts and 25mm bolts. Use the 15mm bolts if your Tripod column is larger than 30mm and you use the 25mm bolts if your centre column is smaller than 18mm. Bolts are just unscrewed out of the Leg Lok with a screwdriver and new ones fitted, end caps are unscrewed and replaced and you get an extra set of 3 end cap protectors just in case you lose any.
Unscrew the Bolts until the the Leg Lok slides up onto your centre column.

Start evenly tightening the screws, evenly count how many turns for each screw to tighten the three bolts up evenly.

ONCE IT STARTS TO TIGHTEN ONTO THE COLUMN, ADJUST THE LEG LOK TO SUIT YOUR TRIPOD BY MOVING THE NLEG LOK UP AND DOWN THE COLUMN AND BY USING THE INNER OR OUTER RESTS A MASSIVE ADJUSTMENT CAN BE MADE FOR ANY TRIPOD UNTIL IT’S PERFECT FOR YOUR CAMERA/LENS & TRIPOD COMBO.

ONCE IN THE CORRECT POSITION FOR YOUR CAMERA AND LENS COMBO, LOCK ALL BOLTS UP TIGHT.

TO BRING THE LEGS IN OUT OF THE FISHEYE FOV AND OUT OF THE FRAME.

BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVER TIGHTEN IF YOU HAVE A CARBON FIBRE TRIPOD. IT NEEDS TO BE TIGHT SO IT DOESN’T MOVE BUT NOT TOO TIGHT THAT YOU CRACK THE CARBON.

THE ABS ENDSTOPS ENSURES NO DAMAGE OR MARKING OCCURS TO THE TRIPOD COLUMN.

ONCE FITTED YOUR RESTS ARE PERMANENTLY READY, SET IN THE EXACT POSITION ON EVERY SHOOT!
