The Leki Photo Adapter allows Leki Trekking Poles to be converted to a tripod quickly. Really easy to fit, simply remove the standard plastic top from the walking pole using the funky red plane and then screw this one in place complete with 1/4 inch photo adapter screw. It can stay in place all the time, as it is designed to fit exactly onto the handle of the pole. If you get fed up of it, then it is just as easy to put the old cover back on the pole. The hole process only takes 2 minutes.
