    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

    CK-550 Soft-touch Knob Conversion Kit ($10.00)  

    This kit allows you to replace the round tilt knob on older Sidekicks and Original Wimberley Heads with a 5-lobe, soft-touch knob.

    *Not compatible for use as a replacement for new Sidekicks and WH-200s that already have 5 lobe soft-touch knobs. These knobs have a different thread pitch. If you need a replacement knob for these products or any other part, please contact us.

    Wimberley AK-100 Sidekick Safety Plate Adapter

    AK-100 Sidekick Safety Plate Adapter ($43.00)  

    The AK-100 attaches to Wimberley Sidekicks produced BEFORE May 2018, 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.)

    Sidekicks produced after May 2018 have a built-in anodized dovetail plate with a safety stop screw and do not require the AK-100 for Arca-Swiss lever-style clamps or use of safety stop screw feature.

    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.
