Title: TRIPOD
Abstract:
The invention relates to a tripod, comprising a tripod head (3), a shaft (1), which is fastened to the tripod head (3) and which is formed from telescopic shaft parts (1.n, 1.m) and can be locked by means of a locking mechanism, and at least three support legs (2), which are mounted on the shaft (1) for swinging out, the support legs (2) being connected to the tripod head (3) by means of tension elements (10), which can be wound and unwound by means of a reel (11) rotatably arranged on the tripod head (3) and which can be tensioned by means of a tensioning element. According to the invention, the reel (11) has a restoring spring, which acts in the winding direction of rotation of the reel (11), and a coupling mechanism, which can be transferred by means of an operating element from a rotation mode, in which the reel (11) can be rotated in an unwinding direction of rotation and, by means of the restoring spring, in a winding direction of rotation, into a tensioning mode, in which the reel (11) can be locked relative to the tension elements (10) and the tension elements (10) can be tensioned by means of the tensioning element.
