Re: Simple fix to stop PMC-Eight metal bracket from sliding on tripod leg

Jennifer Shelly

First of all.  Thank you Mike Leemhuis for the ingenuity of this design.  

Benway also has one for the G-11, but the bolts were a tad bit short for the HD tripod.  I had to use a hand reamer to allow the bolts to sink inside the clamp to give me some extra threads to work with.
