The Markins TH-200 Hub is a fine tuning kit that replaces the platform hub of Series 2 G and GT Gitzo tripods reducing weight and top diameter, thereby providing a slimmer profile for better packability while further enhancing the world class sturdiness of the Gitzo CF 6X ALR tripods and vibration absorbtion.
It has an integrated bubble level and allows the use of an optional tripod hook (sold separately). By having a hook you can add weight to your tripod, thereby further improving stability. Mounting bolt included.
The TH-200 hub is machined from a block of aircraft grade 6061-T6 duraluminum, very nicely finished and hard natural color anodized.
Dimensions: Φ3.78 in x 1.96 in tall / Φ96mm X 49.8mm tall
Weight: 6.1 oz / 174 grams
NOTE: The hub doesn't come with tools for installation.
The tools that came with your tripod should be used. (Two T-25 Torx wrenches).
