Binocular Tripod Adapter

Will you be glassing or watching wildlife for long hours? Simply use the Vortex tripod adapter to lift the weight of binoculars off your arms and onto the steady support of a tripod. Using a rock-steady tripod mount will allow you to spot small details you'd otherwise miss. Quick and easy attachment.

  • ¼-inch threading at the top attaches to any tripod-adaptable binoculars.
  • ¼-inch x 20 standard threading on the base fits directly onto most any tripod and car window mounts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs Tweaking I just got the 15x56 Vulture HD which I'm very happy with. I found I can freehand on glassing up to 400 yards and closer but you most certainly want a steady base at anything further out. A flaw was I needed a pair of needle nose pliers to tighten up the Tripod Adapter as well as putting an extra washer to snug up the play that I was experiencing(not sure if I just didn't receive a washer or not?) Being its a pain to take on and off its little cumbersome and annoying to go from freehand to the tripod so it be nice to have the Adapter a bit more user friendly. Attaching to a quick disconnect is key from going to a window mount to a tripod. Hope this helps and good hunting...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Useful This adapter works great for steadying binos on a tripod. I use this with my Diamondback 10x42s. It does the trick, but is difficult to get on and off given the tight space. I would recommend these if you plan to leave the binos on the adapter full time, but not so much if you plan to put it on and take it off frequently.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must use accessory I bought this tripod adapter for a pair of Diamondback 10x50 binoculars. It can be a little difficult to install as other reviewers have mentioned, but it is definitely worth the effort. Mounting the binoculars to a tripod really increases the amount of time that you can spend glassing and by removing the shake caused by your hands, it really helps to make the picture appear even sharper. I used the tripod mount in a long range shooting competition in New Mexico and having it mounted steady not only reduced the fatigue from holding it to spot for other shooters, but made it possible to see the bullet trace on a number of the shots. I would definitely recommend a tripod mount if you are spending time glassing from a stationary position.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to attach to diamondbacks without pliers Works well but it is difficult to attach to my diamondbacks (Great Binos). There is barely enough room for the screw knob/handle. I have to use needle nose pliers to tighten.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect product This Binocular Tripod Adapter was integral to the success of my last West Texas bow hunt. We were out looking for aoudad/mouflon/blackbuck for hours on end. I mounted my Vortex Diamondback binoculars using this Vortex Binocular Tripod Adapter. It was an invaluable tool that allowed me to avoid lugging around a spotting scope while still having the ability to glass the terrain with stable optics. It was not as quick to attach/detach from the Diamondback binos as I had hoped but in the end they worked out well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good adapter It's light and compact. A little difficult to attach to your binocs if you have big fingers. The tab used to thread it almost needs to extend out past the end of the binocs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made and does the job For the price, this thing is awesome. Easy way to mount my Binos onto my camera tripod to make any kind of glassing so much easier! A few things to note: it's a tight fit on my 8.5x50 Diamondbacks, really tight. It's also a little loose fitting even after cranking it down. I might add a washer or small oring just to fit it tighter. Also to really make the most you need a quick disconnect, a standard one to mount cameras. With that you can use full range of motion for the tripod head. All around great product and I can't wait to glass for hours on end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clever Product We frequently use big box stands for hunting and resting my binoculars on the edge of the stand wasn't giving me the stability I needed for glassing out at distance. This was that perfect accessory to mount to my Viper HD binoculars to get me stable. The thumb wheel is a little difficult to work with, but it's not like this is being used under stress. Must have item for me that lives in my bag now.

Will the Vortex bino adapter work with Swaro EL binos? Do I need to purchase another part or a post to attach it to?

Asked by: cholas
Swarovski binoculars will only work with their tripod adapters. None of our products will work with those.

Is in normal for your binoculars to move side to side when on the adapter?

Asked by: Casey88
There can be a little bit of movement, but if it's excessive try tightening the tripod's connection bolt. If you can't tighten it anymore and it's still loose, try adding a rubber washer.

Unfortunately this adapter won't work, but the Ranger will screw down onto a quick-release plate.

What are the major differences between the two bino mounts for tripods and window mounts? I own the Viper 15x54 currently and have the summit tri pod kit.

Asked by: Ryan
For your Viper 15x50's you will need to go with the uni-daptor as the binocular tripod adapter will not work on binoculars 50 mm or bigger.

Hello Will this item work on my older Vortex VIPER 8.5x50s? There is little space between the tubes and am worried as to whether the attachment knob will have enough clearance.

Asked by: VB1971
Yes, this will work on your binoculars.
