To use the M-2 mount with a standard or surveyor’s tripod, our heavy duty MEC2 column is required. Like the M-2, this column is made in the USA of 6061-t6 aluminum. The M-2 mount head bolts to the top of the column with three side screws. This eliminates rotation between the mount and column.
Add the extension column only to the mount head purchase. Mounts to surveyor tripods using a 5/8-11 bolt. All our tripods use this larger 5/8” bolt so you can tighten the column securely to our tripods. If you tripod uses a different sized mounting bolt, contact us. We can make an adapter to fit your tripod.
Note: This column is made for the M-2 mount head. The head attaches to three holes at the top of the column. So the column will not work with our former M1 mount.
