Gibraltar Upgrade Kit. Adapters Tele-Pod head to old Gibraltar tripods with large bearing hole.

Until 2002, Gibraltar tripods regulated horizontal motion via a 1½”-diameter bearing post in a plastic bushing pressed into the tripod head casting.

Current-model Gibraltars utilize a bearing system built into the horizontal plate of the Tele Pod head. A 3/8”-threaded stud goes from the Tele Pod through a 3/8” hole in the the Gibraltar casting. The new system has several advantages:

  • Bearing tension in the head is adjustable.
  • The head cannot accidentally fall off or be pulled off the tripod.
  • Sky Tour is attached to the head for horizontal motion, making a more-secure connection and avoiding wire “wind-up” from the underside connection required in the older Gibraltar.
