The TAP Slide is for exclusive use with the Zacuto Tripod Adapter Plate. If your tripod head does not have forwards and backwards balance adjustment, it may be difficult to find correct balance with the Tripod Adapter Plate and particularly front or back heavy kits. Add the TAP Slide to have additional back and forth adjustment between the TAP Slide and Tripod Adapter Plate.
Slide your Zacuto Tripod Adapter Plate into the TAP Slide. Line up the Allen screw holes that can be found on both plates and screw the included 10/32 Allen into place. This will act as a stopper so the Adapter Plate cannot slip out of the TAP Slide unexpectedly. Once in place, the Tripod Adapter Plate can slide freely for balance and is then clamped securely in place with a red lever.
The underside of the Zacuto TAP Slide has three 1/4 20 screw holes, two 3/8 16 screw holes and a locator pin port to accommodate the wide variety of tripods, monopods, sliders, dollys etc..
