WHERE ARE MY ACCESSORIES?
Every 3LT tripod comes with some basic tools (this varies according to model). These tools can be found in a hidden pocket, just inside the rim of your bag, or clipped directly to the tripod.
I'VE LOST A...
Lost one of your rubber Bootz? Or your release plate? No problem at all - they are available to purchase from our online store or a retailer near you. If you've lost an internal component, please contact us.
LOST OR BROKEN CHICKEN LIPS
Inside the leg mechanism there are plastic shims (we call them Chicken Lips). If you lose or break one you'll need to contact us with your tripod or monopod range and model number so we can help you.
Our tripods are designed in such a way that they can be disassembled for cleaning and servicing. We have a page of How To videos which provide guidance for you on the most common technical needs.
RETURNS & REPAIRS
If you think your product needs to be returned to us for repair or servicing, contact us via the email at the bottom of this page, and provide a brief explanation of the issue.

HOW DO I?
Our aim is to design products that are compatible with standard mounts and profiles. To discover compatibility with your camera or tripod with our plates, L-brackets, and footwear, choose below.
PLATES, HEADS, CLAMPS & FOOTWEAR
Learn more about our versatile selection of accessories, and compatibility with your camera or tripod.
Our release plates are all Arca Swiss compatible
QR4: Square Plate, standard Arca Fit, includes security screws which, if removed provide Peak Design Capture compatibility
QR7: 38mm x 70mm Plate, standard Arca Fit, full slot, security screws and strap connector
QR11-LC & LG: 110mm Universal L Bracket, standard Arca Fit, Long slot and security screws, cable access and strap connectors on both sides
Our Ball-heads are universally compatible.
|We don’t use proprietary technology where a universal solution exists, because we know our customers may have built up their gear over many years, and won’t want to upgrade or change from a trusted item. 3 Legged Thing’s AirHed range of ball-heads have a standard 3/8" UNC socket in a flat base which makes them compatible with any tripod with a flat mounting plate and a 3/8" UNC bolt.|
|Our clamps have a universal base with a cross socket, to be retro-compatible with most ball-heads. Our clamps also have the unique feature of being mountable on any 3/8”-16 device, such as a monopod. The clamps bear two sockets for compatibility with plates that have security screws (like our QR4, QR7, QR11-LC and QR11-LG), Ellie, and Zelda, and will fit any standard 38mm Arca-style release plate.|
|All current 3 Legged Thing tripods have either 1/4”-20 threads, 3/8”-16 threads, or a 1/4” thread with a 3/8” sleeve, for dual compatibility. Our footwear options all have the same dual threads and will fit any tripod that has standard threads.|
SO, WHICH ELLIE DO YOU NEED?
So, which Ellie is right for you?
With four versions to choose from, we've devised a simple two-question form that will tell you which Ellie version is the best option for you. You'll need to measure the gap between the centre of the hole under your camera, to the edge of the battery door for a correct fit.
ELLIE & ELLIE PD BOTH HAVE IDENTICAL 85mm BASE LENGTH, AND ELLIE SHORT & ELLIE SHORT PD HAVE IDENTICAL 70mm BASE LENGTH SO THE IMAGE PACKS BELOW REPRESENT BOTH STANDARD AND PD VERSIONS.
