Arizona Vortex Multipod, Complete

Arizona Vortex Multipod

The new Arizona Vortex Multipod is the next evolution of the Arizona Vortex. Named the "Multipod" because of its flexibility, it has a two-piece break-apart head that can be rigged as a standard tripod, or in advanced applications, as an A-Fram, a sideways A-Frame, or a Gin Pole. The "easel" leg allows the tripod to be leaned to form an easel A-Frame, placing anchor points closer to the cliff or structure edge. With adjustable leg lengths and a versatile third leg, the Multipod lets rescuers set up an artificial high directional in virtually any urban, industrial or wilderness location.
