    Wimberley Sidekick Shifter Block and spacer plates AP-900 AP-901 AP-902 and AP-903

    Sidekick Shifter & Spacers

    Some larger lenses require the Sidekick to be shifted further out from the ball head in order to move the lens closer to the center of gravity. Your lens may require the use of a shifter to balance it perfectly on the Sidekick. Check our lens chart to see if your lens needs a spacer.

    AP-900 ($50) Sidekick Shifter Block = 0.75" offset
    AP-901 ($65) Sidekick Shifter + one (1/4") spacer plate = 1.0" offset
    AP-902 ($80) Sidekick Shifter + two spacer plates = 1.25" offset
    AP-903 ($95) Sidekick Shifter + three spacer plates = 1.50" offset
