The Gorilla Tripod is a flexible tripod with legs that are designed to bend and wrap. A traditional tripod only allows you to set up on even surfaces. The Gorilla tripod is designed to be used in areas that are impossible for a traditional tripod. The feet of the flexible legs are made with rubberized grips to ensure stability on any surface. The camera attaches via a secure locking ring, allowing you to stabilize and secure the camera. Even though the legs are flexible, the pod will not become strained under the weight of the camera.
