OUR TECHNOLOGY

Since our inception in 2010, we have indulged in a single pursuit - to make the most technologically advanced camera support systems on the planet. Here is a short guide to the unique construction & engineering, our award winning innovation and design, and our unparalleled features & modular functionality.

CONSTRUCTION & ENGINEERING

The first thing that many new customers notice about our tripods is the build quality. We are universally recognised as being a premium brand, and we've earned it. Here's what makes us so special.

WEIGHT BALANCED LOCKS

Each of our patented Parallel Locks has had 26 g / 0.91 oz of weight added to lower the centre of gravity and optimise the rigidity and stability.

LOAD TO WEIGHT RATIO

Our load capabilities are upwards of 4x greater than most tripods with an average load to weight ratio of 17:1, higher than any other brand.

100% PURE CARBON FIBRE

3LT's  Stealth Carbon Fibre is unique, 100% Pure, Japanese Pre-Preg. We use 8 layers, cured at 150°c for 3 hours, and rested for 7 days at 37°c.

CHICKEN LIPS

We use a single, "C" shaped mechanical shim, constructed from nylon, and naturally lubricated to ensure smooth opening, and stable locking of legs.

INNOVATION & DESIGN

In just seven short years we have found ourselves at the forefront of tripod technology, introducing new features and designs never before seen on tripods.

PARALLEL LOCKING

Parallel locks are up to 40% wider than conventional friction locks, giving greater torque and better grip, for unbeatable rigidity

TRI-MOUNT PLATE

Our patented Tri-Mount plate offers six 1/4" and one 3/8" threaded holes for multiple devices, and three convex, hollow spurs for accessory attachments.

MULTI SECTION COLUMNS

We were the first to introduce telescopic centre columns that are completely reversible and removable, giving unparalleled versatility.

DYNAMIC RANGE

Thanks to the modular functionality of our tripods, all of our tripods can be lowered from full height to as low as 12cm / 4.5".

FEATURES AND MODULAR FUNCTIONALITY

In just seven short years we have found ourselves at the forefront of tripod technology, introducing new features and designs never before seen on tripods.

DETACHABLE MONOPOD & BOOM

One leg can be detached and converted to a monopod, camera boom, microphone boom, lighting arm, selfie stick or other similar function.

INTERCHANGEABLE FOOTWEAR

Each of our beautifully crafted foot accessories has a 1/4" stainless steel thread, with a 3/8" sleeve adapter for universal compatibility.

OPTIMISED ANGLES

Every tripod across our ranges operates to three specific leg angles, 23°, 55° and 80°, for optimum stability and maximum dynamic height range

DETACHABLE MODULAR CLAMPS

Our professional clamps are detachable, universally compatible, and can be used independently of a head via the 3/8" female threaded centre.
