Manufactured by Skedco, makers of the Sked Stretcher, the Sked-EVAC tripod features aircraft-grade, gold-anodized aluminum legs and a cast-aluminum head. Three heavy-duty rigging anchors, located in the center, have exceptionally large holes for easy attachment. Legs adjust in 5-in (127-mm) increments for a maximum height of 10 ft (3 m) and a minimum length for transport of 7 ft (2.1 m). The cast ladder feet swivel and come with a choice of a sure-grip rubber pad or a point for embedding in a soft or slippery surface. Holes in the feet allow the tripod to be bolted into position. A safety chain prevents leg movement and adjusts with a screw link. The optional Winch Bracket connects DBI/Sala Salalift II Winch or SRL to a Sked-EVAC Tripod.
