This Sidekick was demonstrated at a tradeshow or workshop, and as a result has seen light use. Wimberley has refurbished the Sidekick as required. At 1.3 pounds and small enough to be easily packed, the Sidekick converts your ball head into a gimbal head in seconds. Simply slide the Sidekick into the quick-release of your ball head. The Sidekick's elevated tilt mechanism and side-mounted quick release allow the lens to rotate around its center of gravity.
This provides the same action and ease of use found in the original Wimberley Head at greatly reduced size, weight, and cost. Remove the Sidekick and your ball head is ready to use with smaller lenses. About the AK-100 Sidekick Safety Plate Adapter. The AK-100 attaches to original Wimberley Sidekicks produced BEFORE May 2018, providing a dovetail width that conforms to the limited clamping range of lever-style clamps.
Traditional twist-knob clamps will work with the AK-100 as well. Sidekicks produced after May 2018 have a built-in anodized dovetail plate with a safety stop screw and do not require the AK-100 for Arca-Swiss lever-style clamps or use of safety stop screw feature.The AK-100 also provides a stop-screw to insure that the Sidekick cannot accidentally slide out of your ball head?
