DIY: Add a Weight Hook to Keep Your Tripod Stable

January 25th, 2012

DIY Stabilizer.jpgAn ultra light tripod is a bit of a
mixed bag. On the plus side, a nice light tripod is far easier to
carry than the alternative. The negative side of things is that
lighter tripods aren’t the most stable of things. Instructable
author Andrew Axley has a solution – the Tripod
Stabilizer Weight Hook
.

The concept is simple enough. Add a
hook to the center of your tripod, allowing you to hang weights for
added stability. With the hook there you can hang something as
simple as your backpack or camera bag – you don’t have to carry
anything extra along.

The process isn’t too terribly
difficult, but you’ll need a few tools and a little bit of know-how
to make it happen.
