Ball Heads

As you can imagine, we love tripod ball heads. Is your Ball Head Compatible?

If your ball head has a locking knob that extends past the bottom as it rotates, hitting the Platypod, try pulling the knob, like a watch, to lock it using a lever motion. If you aren’t sure, contact us at and we will let you know if your equipment is compatible.

Platypods work well with almost any head but here are a few ball heads that we own, have tested and highly recommend.
