Ask Megan: AirHed Anatomy

AirHeds are one of the most important components of your Tripod System. As with our tripods, our AirHeds have multiple functions and detachable clamps that can be used on any 3/8″ thread. Incredibly hardy and stable, our AirHeds are equipped for the vast majority of set ups, and our 360 head has a top-down load capability of 200kg alone. Being one of the most fundamental parts to your system it’s important to know exactly what your AirHed is made up of. Below are some diagrams labelling the full anatomy of our AirHeds. Should any issues or concerns ever occur with your AirHed please contact us immediately via email: support@3leggedthing.com


AirHed 360 – The AirHed 360 is our flagship ball head. One of the most functional and versatile tripod heads in the world, it features base pan, detachable, panoramic clamp, security sockets and spirit level, plus a beautifully fluid ball with powerful locking.

AirHed Switch – The AirHed Switch is our answer to quick-release. With Arca Swiss compatibility, the detachable Switch clamp is adjustable to accommodate different plate profiles, and can be configured for left or right handed use.

AirHed Neo – The AirHed Neo is our smallest and lightest AirHed. With Arca Swiss compatibility, the AirHed Neo is powder-coated and hardened to make it robust and resilient.

AirHed Mini – the AirHed Mini features just two controls; the release plate clamp knob, and a combined panning and ballhead tension knob, which allows you to make composition and position changes using a single control.
