    5Great Little Adapter for an Old Tripod
    By Alan Smithee
    A family member recently gave me an old, sturdy video tripod (from the 80s), and an important latch on the tripod head busted shortly after I started using it. This adapter allowed me to put my newer, fluid head unit on those super-sturdy tripod legs. I did remove the rubber ring, though, since the resistance would cause the adapter to loosen up when panning left. That caused a sudden, jerky motion during those pans, and simply removing the ring completely solved that issue.

    4good fit.
    By OhNoBillS
    4.5 stars. well made, good fit .. I only wish that the knurled ring had a larger diameter ... 2" would have been great, this one is only about 1.25", making it a bit difficult to grip when trying to tighten or loosen it.

    4Gits 'er done for under $10
    By P.K. Frary
    I own two of these 088LBP adapters, one I bought over 20 years ago and one I just received. So are there differences? Functionally, none whatsoever. They both adapt a 1/4" stud to 3/8". There are minor physical differences: the ancient one has a cork gasket whereas the new one sports neoprene. I prefer the neoprene due to its superior grippy non-slip character. However the nickel (?) plating of the ancient one is applied much better: shinny, smooth and just like new. The new one, not so much: plating is uneven and flaking off, revealing the underlying brass. Not a biggie but details are telling of the level of quality control a manufacturer practices. Hopefully Manfrotto heads and tripods are held to a higher standard. Nevertheless, for under $10 I you can't complain much: it works and that's what matters.

    The ancient 088LBP has lived on my Manfrotto 679B monopod for 20 years, adapting ball heads, tilt heads and Arca clamps without flinching (or flaking). Hopefully the young upstart 088LBP will do its duty as well while it serves on my wee Giottos table top tripod, allowing my Manfrotto 494 to sit comfortably on its 3/8" stud. Not a hard job and I suspect the upstart adapter will do just fine.
