Pakpod: Tripod with Ninja Feet for SmartPhone/GoPro: Pak Pod: Pakpod: The Stake-able, Packable, Riggable, Waterproof, All-Terrain Tripod. Stake Out Your Next Adventure.

iCrowdNewswire - Oct 19, 2015

Pakpod is more versatile than any tripod on the market today. Weighing less than a pound and constructed from the same durable stuff as bike and ski helmets, Pakpod is easily stashed in your backpack. And it’s fast. The patented locking system secures all three legs in wildly asymmetrical positions with the twist of a single knob. It’s the first tripod that lets you stake securely into grass, dirt, sand and snow. This ground-breaking new tool helps capture the shots you might otherwise miss with standard issue tripods.

STAKES… WHY STAKES?

Pakpod stakes can help secure and stabilize your valuable gear, but they do more than just stick into the ground. The slotted Standard Stake makes a great ‘jam cleat’ for bungee cords and ¼-20 bolts fit through it nicely. The Quarter-20 Stake has two ¼-20 threaded holes for attaching all kinds of accessories with ease. The Safe Stake is perfect for aspiring young photographers and future film makers.

HOW DOES PAKPOD WORK?

 IS PAKPOD WATERPROOF?  Yes.

Pakpod is much more than a tripod. Transform it quickly into whatever you need - above or below the surface.
