the monopod fix

Posted by Jeremy (Creator)

Hello everybody!

I am happy to give this update that many of you have been waiting for! The monopod reinforcement parts have arrived, which means I can finally get out those last orders that many of you have been waiting so patiently for. 

The part that I designed  is an aluminum 'collar' which secures to the bottom of the monopod. It fixes the issue of the monopod's bottom screw coming loose, and even the occurrences of the monopod's platic base plate cracking. Because of the wider base and solidity it also increases the overall stability of the monopod and helps it attach more securely to the base of the Revolve Dolly.

The collar has a center hole that threads directly onto the monopod's bottom screw, and 4 set screws which tighten onto the very bottom of the monopod tube structure just above the plastic base plate.

As you can see in the comparison above, the bottom mounting point becomes much more robust once the collar is installed.

I am very happy with the way this reinforcing collar functions. I think it looks pretty good too!

At the beginning of next week, I will begin shipping the remainder of the international orders who opted to wait for this part to arrive before their order went out. I want to thank you all for your outstanding patience! If you have any last minute address changes, please let me know ASAP!

For those of you who already received your orders with monopods and are just waiting for the reinforcement part- I will ship the part out to you as soon as possible. Many of you have already contacted me letting me know you would like the part, so if there is anyone else who needs it please let me know and I will get it to you.

Thank you again for your amazing support and patience! I have been getting great feedback from you guys and have already seen some pretty cool footage made with the Revolve. I hope to continue seeing your awesome results, so please continue to share!

Best-

Jeremy

      Hi, Still waiting in Australia. Just want to check I'm actually on the list. The link to the backers list on the non-Kickstarter Revolve website does not bring it up. Hopefully the dolly (no other extras were ordered so that should not have caused any delay - no?) will arrive before Santa does!

      Thanks!
      I received my Revolve dolly, the updated monopod, and a friction arm.
      The package was left at the door. No customs, duty or taxes.

      Anxious to get my order. Is there any way to track the shipment?

      Just saw this update and would like to get this part as well. Monopod ran into the problem within a few minutes of using it.

      Michael- you were on the list, and your part has gone out.

      All of the parts have been shipped, everyone should have them in their hands shortly if they don't already.

      For those of you who will be getting the part by itself to install, you will need a 1.5mm hex key to tighten down the set screws. If you don't have one, just visit the nearest hardware store with your monopod and 'borrow' one of theirs for a moment!

      I wanted to make sure I was on that list. I requested to be on it when this issue first arose. Thanks!

      Thanks everyone, your parts are either on their way, or will be going out within the next few days!

      Very much looking forward to getting my kit! Would also appreciate a confirmation that it's on the way. I assume you've gone through a lot of orders already...
