3 Legged Thing Announces Docz2 Monopod Stabiliser and Mini Tripod
The British tripod manufacturer adds new product features to extend the versatility of its monopod base and turn it into a mini tripod.
Wednesday 15th May 2019 – Stagsden, England
Following the huge popularity of its Docz foot stabiliser, which was available both as a standalone product and as part of a kit with either its Alan or Trent monopods, 3 Legged Thing is releasing a brand new version of the product.
3 Legged Thing has developed Docz2 in response to feedback from customers, and the updated product adds functionality and extends the versatility by exchanging the main 3/8”-16 mounting point on Docz for a 1/4”-20 thread mount on Docz2. To ensure compatibility with a wide range of products, Docz2 also ships with a 3/8”-16 adapter.
Danny Lenihan, Founder & CEO of 3 Legged Thing commented: “The success of Docz has been incredible since its launch last summer, and after a lot of feedback from customers we are delighted to now offer this product with dual threads, making it a versatile and credible alternative to low-level and table top tripods, as well as increasing compatibility with more tripods and monopods.”
This feature change enables monopods with either 1/4”-20 or 3/8”-16 threads in the foot to be used with Docz2. The addition of the smaller mount will be welcome news for owners of 3 Legged Thing Leo, Punks Brian, and Punks Corey tripods, as their monopod legs will be compatible with the new version of the popular foot stabiliser.
As well as increased monopod compatibility, the 1/4”-20 thread mount on Docz2 turns it into a mini table-top or low-level tripod, allowing users to attach their camera directly on to the ball mount. The positioning and tension of the ball mount is adjustable via the rubber foot in the base of Docz2. Users who prefer to use a tripod head, can still do so by using the bundled 3/8”-16 adapter.
With the release of Docz2, 3 Legged Thing will also update its monopod kits to include the new product. AlanKit2 – featuring 3LT’s professional, carbon fibre, travel monopod, Alan, and TrentKit2 – which includes 3LT’s ultra-tall Punks aluminium monopod, Trent, will both be released at the same time.
All three products will be available from 1st June 2019. A list of 3 Legged Thing retailers is available here. Docz2, AlanKit2 and TrentKit2 will also be available to buy from 3 Legged Thing’s website.
