PO-120 Wimberley Sidekick Pouch ($20.00)

The Wimberley Sidekick Pouch fits the Sidekick. Custom manufactured by LensCoat, the soft neoprene protects the Sidekick from scratches during traveling and in the field. A pull cord closure allows easy access. Flattens for easy storage. Stress areas reinforced with cordura nylon.

The Sidekick pouch is available only in Black, branded with the Wimberley name.


AK-100 Sidekick Safety Plate Adapter ($43.00)

Weight……..1.2 oz
Height……...2.75 in
Width……….1.5 in

The AK-100 attaches to the Wimberley Sidekick, providing a dovetail width that conforms to the limited clamping range of lever-style clamps. (Traditional twist-knob clamps will work with the AK-100 as well.)

The AK-100 also provides a stop-screw to insure that the Sidekick cannot accidentally slide out of your ball head’s quick-release clamp.

F-6 Sidekick Bracket ($152.00)  

This bracket consists of modules M1 & M3. It positions the flash above the lens when using side-mounted gimbal heads such as the Sidekick.

Note: If you want a bracket that will work on the Sidekick and on your ball head, the F-1 Telephoto Bracket can be configured for either task.

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
