TA-2U Leveling Base
Adding to bag… The item has been added



The RRS TA-2U-LB improves in nearly every respect over our popular TA-2 and TA-U leveling bases. As always, these improvements are the direct result of listening to our customers and their invaluable feedback.

First and most obviously, the size. We've shrunk the overall height by nearly 30% to improve packability and strength of any tripod with leveling base and head setup.

Second, despite this smaller size there is now more freedom to move. As is industry standard, our TA-2 and TA-U can tilt up to 15 degrees from level in any direction. The new TA-2U-LB moves 33% further at 20 degrees. This can mean a world of difference in achieving desired photo composition in steep terrain.

Third, the TA-2U-LB locks up to 15% more, and with less effort. Now you can more confidently position and secure valuable rigs at any angle.

Finally, the ergonomics and usability have all gotten better. The triple-lobe lock lever means that the position of the thumb pads relative to your tripod legs remains the same no matter which leg faces you. The placement of these thumb pads reduce the needed effort to achieve lockup. With a removable male mounting stud, the TA-2U-LB can attach to any tripod platform with a male 3/8"-16 stud, a RRS Quick-Column tube, or directly into a 2 series Versa Tripod SureGrip apex. The TA-2U-LB can even be loosened or further tightened in place with the aid of a 5/32" hex key placed in the 3/16" holes around the base's bottom.
