plate alignments.
Pan and Tilt Action
You can control all of the pan and
tilt action with just one hand. To
make any horizontal or vertical
adjustments, twist the handle
counter-clockwise to free the pan
head’s movement. When in desired
position, twist handle clockwise to
lock.

Caution
To prevent unnecessary damage to your optics, take a few seconds to
remove your optic from the tripod before you move to a new location.
Spotting scopes and other optics may become damaged if carried
while attached to the tripod. The quick-release plate makes this
easy—and quick!
TIP: Purchase additional quick-release plates for your optics so it is
easy for you to switch equipment.
