DIY rubber booties for tripod

I wanted to protect my Sirui N2204 tripod feet from sand and dirt. It has rubber feet and spikes, you turn the feet to expose the spikes. It dosen't need grit especially sand in the threads.

So I cut three sections of a bike tube to approprate length, six to eight inches I guess. I also cut three sections about 1/8 inch. Inner tubes make great heavy duty elastic bands, you may have hear them called "ranger bands". The long sections slide on get folded over and ranger banded to the tripod. Tried it yesterday in the sand, it worked great and Mr Pod came home with nice clean feet.

Oh, good idea. I have plenty of old bike tubes laying around that I could cut up.
