Hi all,

Here are the pix.

As you can see this tripod c/w a tighten tool, to adjust the tension of the tripod legs.
Is design to be clip on to the tripod, but I don't feel is safe enough, So I got myself a flex cable with a screw lock and I just secure at my Optech tripod strap as is shown on the next pix.

Same things happen again.
The black color but caps has came out very easy.
So I remove all of them and keep at a very safe place.
(Saw other guy also feedback about this as well)
Anyway I had emailed them about this matter couple months back. But till now no feed back or replay from them… So I had given up on them now…

There is a knob to tighten the centre column.
The sliver is a release lever the adjust the tripods legs (open and close)
There is a hole there is for hooking the strap.
