The GeoMeasure Pole Claw that is designed to avoid damaging your pole. The claw is designed to be the perfect diameter to firmly hold onto your rover pole, without allowing over tightening the claw. The built in compass and level bubble offer a certain degree of flexibility that you do not find on the level bubble of your regular rover pole.
With several preset positions on the claw for the cradle, there is no need to fiddle around with a ball and joint to get it into the ideal position. It quickly snaps into position and is firmly held in place by a metal pin. There is no extra movement, no extra parts that can break. The very simplicity of this cradle is what makes it so versatile.
