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 8.5×50 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.

Bino Tripod Adapter

So I bought this Adapter and as others have said it is a little hard to get in and off. So here is what I came up with. 3/8 drive extension and 14 mm socket and it goes on and off much easer. 1/4 drive would work also. Here are some pics. I hope this helps.

Hard to get on and off

If your going to keep it on it’s great, if not I’d think about something else. At least with my diamondback 10×42’s and 12×50’s it’s difficult to get tights. In the field you want quick access to your bino/tripod setup, this is gonna take bit to get setup. Needs a different setup to tighten down for sure.

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.

Must use accessory

I bought this tripod adapter for a pair of Diamondback 10×50 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.

Functional but not practical

Quality product but not very functional. THis adapter has to be removed from your binos every time you want to put them back in your chest harness and is a pain in the butt to even get on your binos in the first place. if yuo hace chop-sticks for fingers and like to fumble around with your adapter then this might be the adapter for you. I would recomend the Outdoorsmans Bino Adapter over this one.

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.

Works great, difficult to get on and off

I got this a year ago with the summit car window mount. They both pair up nicely with my Viper HD 12×50’s. The only thing I do not like about it is it is difficult to get on and off the binos. You have to squeeze your fingers between the binos and can only get about a half a turn at a time. If you guys made a screwdriver like tool for it it would work fantastic.

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.

Nice in appearance but design is flawed.

Bought for my Diamondback 10×50’s. Unable to finger tighten sufficiently so the binoculars wobble laterally. A longer shaft and/or a universal joint would speed up installation time considerably. Raccoon fingers might help but they take too long to train.

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.

Life saver

I bought this at the turn of the year, i have used it alot. Great for helping with scouting and looking for sheds. It helped me find 3 sheds this year and save my legs from walking to a false shed alot. One minor downfall is i have 50mm binoculars, and it is hard to tighten the wing nut with my average sized hands. Other than that it is an essential part of equipment. I plan on using it on my trigger sticks this fall antelope hunting in Wyoming.

Light duty

I bought this bino tripod adapter two years ago, and it has worked well untill today. That being said I do not recommend this product for backcountry use. I leave adapter attached to my kaibabs and today I take my binos out of my pack and this is what I find. I’m still a huge vortex fan, and their glass is all I use. VIP warranty is not much good out here. Looks like I needed a heavy duty alternative.

Works good

Works good on my diamondback binoculars, but it is a little tight fit to tighten it up.

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.

Poor design…needs update fast!

Love vortex products, but this mount is very poorly designed. The ability to tighten to your binos is limited/prohibited by the short screw handle. If they extended the screw handle a couple inches, it would GREATLY improve the functionality. I bought this for an elk trip….and it’s sat in my bag the entire time. Don’t buy until they improve the design.

Bad design

I’ll start off by saying it works.. But unfortunately it’s a true pain to try and get screwed on and off. I have a pair of Viper 10×50 and the twisting element to tighten the binos to the mount comes right in between the narrowest opening between lenses, making fitting your fingers between the lenses to twist annoyingly difficult.

A must have for a western hunter

Bought this for long glassing sessions with my vortex viper hd 10×42’s. Worked perfectly, easy to use and never got loose on me. Awesome feature is if you have multiple pairs of binos, it connects quickly. My buddy was even able to put his binos on my tripod (ill leave the brand out of it) and worked great for his too.

Works well, required additional washer

At first I thought the adapter was a pretty bad design. It was difficult to attach with fingers (but not too bad with my Maven 10×42, though some binos with larger lenses might be impossible). There was also a lot of play and wobble.
HOWEVER, I took it apart and added a tiny plastic washer between where the vertical post attaches to the mounting bolt. This tightened everything up and still makes on/off attachment easy enough! Now I can recommend this adapter but without this washer, it’s very frustrating to use.

Simple, easy to use, makes binos more effective

Simple product, makes glassing with binos so much more effective. Have spotted much more game I would have otherwise missed. This method of glassing was probably the single biggest game changer for me during the 2017 hunting season. Small, light, simple, durable, and effective.

Impossible to take on and off

I have the diamondback 10×50 and this adapter is a pain. Worst design ever. Need to extend the screw. And it also does not tighten down all the way. You need to make a quick release

Not worth the money

I bought this over a year ago and it takes about 30 minutes of fumbling around to attach to your Vortex Binos. The head that you would normally turn with your fingers is so small and so poorly engineered you have to carry a leatherman with you to tighten it. It’s impossible to hand tighten. You would have to have the fingers of a 4 year old girl and the strength of an ox on steroids to possibly attach this in under a minute. Very poorly engineered.

It does it’s job, sort of

There really isn’t much to a product like this. It screws into my bino’s and mounts to a tripod. The reason I’m not giving it a very good review is for two reasons. One- it doesn’t really feel that secure when I mount my binoculars to it. Two- They are very hard to screw into my binos. This is also for two reasons, one reason being because I have big hands, the other is because there isn’t much room in between the my vortex diamondback bino’s to twist the handle. I’m wondering if the plastic handle was a little longer or not quite as bulky then I wouldn’t have to try so hard to squeeze my fingers in there to tighten it. For this reason I actually found it easier to use my bushnell tripod adapter which is more compact and fits in between the gap in my bino’s better, allowing someone with larger hands and/or narrow bino’s to tighten them much easier.

Simple and Sturdy

Used this for the last 2 years on my mountain hunts, great addition to my pack as my kidney transplant anti-rejection meds cause minor trembles making it hard to see anything at distance clearly. my only complaint is that the screw tang isn’t quite long enough and it’s hard to tighten the mount to the binos quickly and easily. it would be nice if it was shorter so I wouldn’t have to remove it to put in my chest pack when moving out.

Works well but…

The tripod adapter is durable but it is a pain in the but to attach on my Kaibab HD15s and I have to use the pliers on my multi tool to attach/detach them which takes time and can be a pain especially when you are trying to pack up your gear quick to chase after any given animal.

My suggestion, PLEASE design a quick detachment!

One it’s on your tripod though it is sturdy and makes glassing a breeze.

Great for hiking but…

I have had this adapter for 2 years now and I have loved it. I mount it to the top of my hiking pole during the hunt so I can quickly attach my binos if needed. The problem I have is while hiking the bolt rattled out and now I have to buy a new one. I wish the retaining ring was something better than just threaded. It would make this product perfect for hiking into the back country.

Difficult to screw on.

Great idea but found it very difficult to put on. Not much space between the lens housing for you fingers to screw adapter in tight. Eventually stripped out the nut trying to screw in adapter over and over. I’ve since moved to the Outdoorsman quick release and its a breeze. Still a Vortex fan but just not for this accessory.

Good Quality – Bad Design

Tried to used this adapter on multiple sets of binos. As others have said, you can’t get it tight unless you use pliers, since the end is set between the bino tubes. A stud and quick release would be better. Would be fine if you ALWAYS kept it on, but it is too tall to then fit any binos in any case/pouch.

HARD TO TIGHTEN

i put this on the crossfire 12×50 which are large and it is difficult to tighten. i ended up using a pair of needle nose pliers which ended up scratching the finish. once tightened i have had no problems but if you plan to use this i would suggest having it on your binoculars before you leave the house.

Great concept

Great concept. Design is great and strurdy. Works ok on a tripod. Only negative is that will only work with vortex brand binos and it is a little wobbly when moving binos to fit your eyes. Can’t tighten down enough.
