This 3 ft. satellite dish tripod is nice and compact for travel. Tripods are excellent for helping your satellite dish clear railings, fences, trees and other obstacles. RV'ers love them, and apartment dwellers keep their landlords happy with them. These tripods are heavy duty and high quality and are a popular item.
We got this tripod for our dish at our camper that we leave set up year-round. It’s a full size DirecTV dish. We do of course have this staked to the ground but it has withstood very windy weather off the Tennessee River. If you already have a dish and you’re just taking your box with you this is the way to go. We have since learned that some of the satellite companies will let you have an additional box and they will set it up for you for a minimal fee.

Works after modifying leveling hardware
Setting this up the first time was quite a challenge. The bolts used to level the mast have two loose nuts on them through unthreaded holes. We finally removed the extra nut on the outside of the hole and were able to use the nuts to level the mast. If the inside nuts had been tack welded to the holes, it would’ve been much easier.
Plenty sturdy and a great value
Good value. Plenty sturdy. Easy to install. The short mast is a larger diameter on one end and a smaller diameter on the other end to accomodate different antennas. I have an old Cushcraft R7 amateur radio vertical antenna mounted on this tripod and it works great. All the hardware is included, but I used my own bolts to mount to the roof as I put additional 2×4’s under the roof deck in the attic for more strength. Also be sure to use roofing cement under and over the bolts to seal the shingles back up to orevent leaks.
Very sturdy tripod
After years of being mounted on my patio roof the DirecTv dish worked it’s way loose and I got tired of propping it up with bricks. It took a reasonable amount of time to install and this tripod is very sturdy. Have had gusts of wind over 40 mph and it has been rock solid. Wish I would have had this tripod 25 years ago when I installed this dish.
Strong very good for the price and more.
even in 40 mile an hour winds this has held my antenna in place with out trouble. Strong, good product
Was missing one bolt but other than that is great.
I love the stand and the universal mast
This product more than met my expectations. I love the stand and the universal mast. My only issue was that it was missing one washer. No big deal but all of the other screws and washers were in place except for that one which means manufacturer knew it was missing when they sealed the box. Outside of that..it is a great buy and it did not effect performance. I would buy agsin.
worked as described and made our camping life so much easier
This fit the ticket it folds up for traveling or storage and for such a low price it is amazingly sturdy. It works great for us
It did exactly what it was suppose to do. We needed a portable unit for the camper. We had the dish already but needed the tripod to hold it up. This fit the ticket it folds up for traveling or storage and for such a low price it is amazingly sturdy. It works great for us.
