order this extension rod for my video light. it is very solid and well made. shipping is very impressed and it 5 days faster than BH photo and video.
Good quality materials. Very pleased
I am trying to use the Alzo extensions with an old Slik tripod for a laser level.
The rods have a nice finish. Everything about them is nice.
For my application, the extension rods are too small in diameter.
They are the same diameter as the Slik quick release post.
The tightening mechanism is a cam where the QR post pulls the "camera"
against the tripod plate. Since the rod is the same diameter as the QR post,
the tightening doesn't work.
I was able to get the tightening mechanism to work by
put a piece of plumbers "tape" (hanging strap) between the QR post
and the extension rod. Looks real ugly. Sorta works.
This works just as i expected. I was not disappointed. I’ve been looking for an item like this for a long time.
Simple requirement for a 1/4" 20 extension tube that was accomplished at a reasonable price. Build quality exceeded expectations.
