- Mast Options (mast is not included in price of tripod).
- Use pitch pad kit with lag-screws to protect roof and bolt tripod to roof: Includes bolts and butyl (tar) sealant to mount on roof.
- For the 5FT tripods (including the TRIPOD5FT and the Sloped Roof Tripod SKU TRIPODSL): You will need 1.5 kit per tripod in order to have enough lag-bolts (see note below). Each kit Includes six bolts and six butyl (tar) strips [sealant to mount on roof] The "adjustable feet" of the 5-FT tripod have 3 holes per foot for lag-bolts, so that a total of 9 lag screws/bolts are needed per tripod. You should install lag-bolts in all three holes per foot to ensure that this tripod will survive wind in storms. The pitch pad kit with lag-screws/bolts that we offer above comes with 6 lag-bolts, so you will want to consider purchasing more than one pitch pad kit per tripod, to ensure that you will have enough lag-bolts. These kits are only $2.10 each.

Tripod mounts are three-legged, rigid metallic stands with a central support cup to hold a mast that will accommodate large and heavy parabolic, dish and grid antennas. Thumbscrews in these central support cups are tightened much to hold the mast tightly, so that the mast does not have to rest on the roof or ground surface.
The antenna is mounted on the mast either by using a mounting bracket or U-bolts. Our tripods feature pitch, angle and height adjustment for the antenna. Tripods are fixed on rooftops using bolts, they can also be mounted on the ground by anchoring.

- Tripod antenna mount for sloped roof
- Can be installed on roof slope or peak: Conforms to almost any roof slope.

This is a three-piece set that is easy to install: There is a bolt almost at the middle of the mast (longest leg) where you attach the other 2 smaller legs to make the tripod.
