KEMP, Texas, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Larson Electronics has announced the release of a Navy SPAWAR specifications compliant magnetic mount aluminum tripod designed for mounting high value electronics in high stress applications. The MM-3 Aluminum Tripod with Magnetic Bases supports up to 40 lbs of equipment and provides high stability and secure placement on vehicles, equipment and metallic surfaces with three 200 lb grip magnetic feet.


The Larson Electronics MM-3 aluminum tripod with magnetic bases provides a highly secure and stable magnetic mounting platform that allows operators to attach up to 40 lbs of lighting, cameras, and similar devices to the outside of vehicles or equipment without the need for drilling holes or attaching permanent brackets.  This compact tripod features heavy duty anodized aluminum construction, three fully articulated legs to allow mounting to unusual surface angles, and three 200 lb grip magnetic foot pads for extremely secure and stable mounting.  A center post mounting platform allows vertical adjustment and accepts standard camera type mounting designs. This heavy duty tripod is popular with military personnel due to its easy deployment and ability to maintain position even under aggressive driving conditions. Common uses include mounting auxiliary lighting, night vision equipment, cameras, and other high value electronics.  An adjustable center post mounting platform provides vertical height adjustment and allows users to attach any equipment up to 40 lbs in weight utilizing standard camera type mounting designs.  These magnetic mount platforms meet Navy SPAWAR specifications and are constructed of solid anodized aluminum with stainless steel hardware to provide extreme durability and resistance to rust and corrosion. The MM-3 aluminum tripod collapses to a height of 10 inches and with the center post fully raised has a total height of 18 inches.  This magnetic mounting platform is ideal for military and law enforcement applications as well as security and hunting uses where lighting and camera equipment is often mounted to the exterior of vehicles.

"This machined aluminum tripod is designed to support high value instruments for semi-permanent mount applications," said Rob Bresnahan with  "The MM-3 was originally designed to mount stabilized night vision optics on military equipment.  This magnetically mounted tripod offers the ability for operators to magnetically attach their gear to uneven surfaces."
