The Video Tripod Manager 44 from Think Tank is a rolling case that is designed to accommodate a video tripod and head combination measuring up to 9.8 x 40.2 x 9.8" when collapsed for storage or transport. This rolling case can also be used to provide compatible camera sliders, light stands, or other support systems with reliable protection during travel.
Within the Video Tripod Manager 44's crush-resistant, reinforced side panels, adjustable cushions throughout the main compartment allow support to be concentrated where it is needed most, such as around a tripod head's moving parts. An abrasion-resistant, zippered closure extends around this rolling case's top and bottom, as well as down one side. After the Video Tripod Manager 44's rear panel is placed against the ground so that its front panel faces upward, the main compartment can be reached by opening the zippered closure. Skid rails elevate the rear panel, protecting it from abrasions and moisture. After the zippered closure is released, the front panel can be flipped open to reveal two zippered, mesh pockets which can be used to store and organize gaffer tape, cables, or tools. Included touch-tab straps form two hinges along the inside edges of this rolling case, preventing the front panel from opening upwards at an angle greater than approximately 90°. While in place, the hinges help ensure that the inside of the front panel and its pockets face the user and are easy to reach when accessing the main compartment. Multiple tie-down straps with convenient side-release buckles prevent a video tripod or other support device from shifting during transport, and the Video Tripod Manager 44's internal bottom lining features an easy-to-clean surface designed for tripod feet or other components that routinely come into contact with floor surfaces.
Eight handles are included for flexibility while moving this rolling case; a top handle, a bottom handle, and six side handles, three of which are distributed along each side. For security, an integrated cable with combination lock along the top handle can be used to chain the Video Tripod Manager 44 to an immovable object such as a pole. Also along the top handle is a clear pocket that can be used to hold documents for easy retrieval, a contents label, or owner information. In the event of loss or theft, the ID plate between the skid rails can be registered at the Think Tank website to facilitate the recovery of a Video Tripod Manager 44.
Nylon construction throughout this rolling case and a polyurethane-coated underside provide a high degree of weather resistance. The Video Tripod Manager 44's overall durability is further complemented by tall wheel housings that protect its corners from impacts to escalators as well as curbs, and if they wear out over time, the wheels are user-replaceable.
