Ultra the flat tripod during a hike


Ultra comes with four “feet," which are screws that grip on uneven or rocky surfaces. Often you don't need any.

  1. Use one feet for grip on uneven surfaces.

  2. Use two feet to hang on objects like rocks. Even vertical objects like fences and car windows.

  3. Use three feet on really uneven surfaces.

  4. Use four feet to spike Max into soft surfaces, like grass and sand.

Each stainless steel screw is 2 inches long with heavy-duty rubber caps and locking nuts. Ultra comes with a wallet case to hold the feet together.
