Comments about Slik Slik Quick Release Post for U-212 Deluxe:

I have had a Slik Universal 212 Deluxe for better than 16 years and find it to be a very stable and reliable tripod. I like the fact that the head can be removed from the top of the column and placed on an attachment point on either one of the legs or the bottom end of the column. This makes it good for getting down low to the ground.
As I am 6'2" the column extends to a comfortable height for me to use.

The only drawback to it is that at six (6) pounds, it is rather heavy, so carrying it around in the field can be a bit tiring.

This item would be better if it was to be attached to some wire or chain so it would not be lost.I find that at times if you take it out of the tri-pod it can be lost.This is the third one that I purchased.

Comments about Slik Slik Quick Release Post for U-212 Deluxe:

The post is a piece of a Slik tripod system. If you use multiple cameras to shoot you can very quickly detach and attach a camera to a tripod by having multiple posts, one for each camera you need to mount on the tripod, already attached to your camera. Not really that different from other plate and clamp tripod systems but smaller, easier, and less expensive to do than for many other tripod systems.

I have not been able to use my tripod since the early 1990's, becuase I lost that piece. Not that I have it and one extra incase I loose another, I can enjoy my tripod because it is a heavy duty and sturdy tripod. Thanks for having that part I have been searching for for so long.
