Safety Plate for Gitzo 5 & 55 Series Carbon fiber tripods

Select quantity:   

Safety Plate for Gitzo tripods is designed for ultimate security.

The combination of a telephoto lens, teleconverter, camera, flash, and tripod head is very heavy. When carrying a tripod over the shoulder, this weight puts additional stress on the tripod plate. The plate is custom designed, machined, & manufactured especially using aerospace industry 6061 anodized aluminum, along with two stainless steel bolts - which bolt you will use depends on your tripod model.

The plate is a perfect fit, positioned snugly below the existing Gitzo plate, inside the “basin.” Once installed, the Gitzo plate can not move or loosen, therefore preventing the head & photo equipment from falling.

The GSP-55 is for use with the GT5541LS and the older GT1548.

Beautifully machined, fits like a glove to the tripod. Gives extra stability to the weak spot.

A good quality safety plate, very quick delivery to the UK, easy to Install. Would have liked the new bolt to have been counter drilled to take the original Gitzo hook. (Maybe a future design change? Many thanks for some great gear over the years..

Very pleased with this photographic firm,an essential safety plate which is required which fits perfectly, and solves the problem Gitzo have ignored,and not rectified for the older tripods,allowing large lenses to fall off the tripods, the plate a bit expensive but cheaper than paying for a new lens. no UK supplier makes these so grateful this company came up with the solution, the postage charge is very commendable and realistic from this firm considering other USA companies were charging nearly as much for postage as for the plate itself,and this was delivered quickly to the UK.hopefully Gitzo have learnt from their design fault ...

Simple to fit (given a decent socket set) and seems to do exactly what it says on the tin. Happily not tested in anger yet!..
