This kit is truly one of the most versatile accessories for using your tripod on any kind of terrain. Simply remove the standard feet and install the stainless-steel spikes into the threaded port found at the bottom of each XC-M leg. These spikes are great for solid footing on ice, dirt, grass, and more. Attach the sand/snow baskets directly to the spikes for excellent stability on soft ground. Also included are three soft tips for use on delicate surfaces such as wood floors. The soft tips push onto the spikes and can be applied either with, or without the sand/snow baskets in installed.
