Perfect for mounting weather stations. This universal mounting tripod fits all weather stations and is preferred over the Davis Instruments 7716 due to better materials and design.
The EZ-48-3AB-125-35 Tripod assembly is constructed of 18 gauge 1008-10 steel tubing, galvanized using the Flo-Coat (zinc-chromate-polymer) process for excellent corrosion protection.
Ungalvanized leg braces, mast collars, & connecting components are gold irridited for corrosion protection.
Mast collars feature a captive "stop-nut" design, to eliminate lock nut spin when tightened; and a mast supporting cup for additional stability. The tripod base is 33" (85.8 cm).
Tripod height 33 inches (85.8 cm). Supplied with one mast for an assembly height of 53" inches (150.8 cm), and an adjustment range of 41 to 58 inches (106.6 to 150.8 cm).
Add up to two mast extensions (see below, EZ-125-35M) to extend the height of 31" per mast extension.
Add the optional stake kit (see below, EZ-245-SK) for moderate wind ground installation.
Add the optional tar pads (see below, EZ-46-3) for roof-top installations.
Add the optional guy wire kit (see below, EZ-GWA) for configurations with two extension poles, or for locations that experience sustained periods of high wind.
Great tripod - using 1 mast extension + 24 inch stakes.
This product appears to meet ones need until one tries to tighten the bolts that hold the mail mast in place. Following instructions I attempted to screw in the 3/8" (or 5/16") cap bolts. They were exceedingly difficult to rotate. in the process, one of the bolts broke. next, I decided to unscrew all of them and apply WD-40 which helped to screw in the bottom bolts; after i replaced the one that broke. Furthermore, the extensions sold as options (female end) were not large enough. When extensions are necessary I would prefer not a compression fit (which can be exceedingly hard to disengage) but rather a bolt thru arrangement to hold the extensions together.
My Ambient Weather WS-0900-IP has been on this tripod for just over a year now and everything is just as tight and sturdy as the day I put it up.
Well made, sturdy and it is as described.
EASY TO SET UP ROCK SOLID CONSTRUCTION
Easy to install and very well built.
Just the thing I needed to mount my weather station. The sturdy unit arrived on time and is as described. The price was a little higher than I feel is necessary.
