How to Use GripTight Video
Attach GripTight Mount to GorillaPod Quick-Release Clip
Start screwing the quick-release clip into the bottom of the GripTight Mount. Use a coin to securely tighten down the screw. Make sure the quick-release clip is in line with the GripTight Mount's grip pads for fast and easy setup.
Stabilize Left & Right with Two Legs
Secure one leg to the left of your phone, and then secure one leg to the right of your phone. By positioning one leg on each side, you prevent your phone from slipping sideways. The broader the stance of your GripTight GorillaPod Video, the sturdier it will be on uneven surfaces.
Prevent Slipping with Third Leg
Use the third tripod leg to provide stability for your phone by bending it into an angle and having it rest or push off the surface where you're setting up your shot. This leg position will counter-balance the weight of your phone, preventing it from slipping forwards or backwards.
Adjust Pan and Tilt Handle
Press the small blue button on the side of the videohead to adjust the angle of the pan and tilt handle so you can easily access it. You can lock the handle into eight different positions so you can use it in even the trickiest of setups. Press the blue button again to fold the handle flat for easy storage.
Secure on Vertical Poles
Wrap one leg around the front of the pole, wrap the second leg around the back of the pole, and position the third leg in an arc directly below the phone with the foot of the tripod perpendicular the pole. This will prevent your phone from slipping down the pole. Be sure to align the omnidirectional ballhead with the horizon line to get a straight and level panning shot.
Get Smooth Pan & Tilt Shots Easily
To record the smoothest panning shots possible, use one hand to maneuver the pan & tilt handle and use the other hand to hold the GorillaPod in place. Either hold onto the silver part of the videohead or hold onto the GorillaPod legs to keep it sturdily in place while panning and tilting.
Magnetic Feet for Better Pan & Tilt
Use the magnetic feet to secure your GorillaPod on metal poles or railings. Securing the magnetic feet on a metal surface will also make it easier to achieve smooth pan and tilt.
Designer Tip: For less resistance when panning, warm up the pan and tilt head. Use the handle to spin the head around in a circle for 30 seconds and then set up your shot.
