DGA "COMPLETE" Ball Mount Conversion Kit for the BOG DeathGrip™ Tripod

Want a Ball Head on your BOG Deathgrip™ Tripod? Here it is! It's time to get your tripod back in action with the Ball Mount Adapter Kit from Little Crow Gunworks. In about 10 minutes, with simple hand tools, you can transform your obsolete tripod into one of your new favorite pieces of field equipment. 

All you need for installation is a 3/16" Allen Key, a rubber or dead blow hammer and a 9/16" wrench.

This kit features a robust 40mm, ARCA compatible Ball Mount(44lb rating), 1 ARCA plate for mounting optics, cameras or rangefinders, as well as our proprietary Black, Hard-Coat Anodized 6061 Aluminum center column sleeve and ARCA plate adapter for the Deathgrip™ rifle-clamp head unit.

When the BOG Deathgrip™ first came on the market, I was excited because it was a "made for purpose" piece of equipment for stabilizing a rifle in the field. I have used other BOG products with satisfaction, why should the Deathgrip™ be any different? Most of the other tripod products on the market are either very expensive, or made originally as camera equipment, which can be confusing because using tripods as a shooting rest can apply a different level of stresses on the tripod than a camera might. I was immediately impressed with the rigidity of the Deathgrip™ tripod and the design of the Deathgrip™ clamp itself. But I quickly discovered that the rifle mount would only pan and tilt, which is a problem in the field because when you pan the rifle, your crosshairs don't stay level. I used the tripod off and on for a year, hunting prairie dogs, deer and coyotes with much frustration. Well-made product, just fell short on the execution.

What the Deathgrip™ needed was a ball mount adapter. A couple years ago, I bought a ball mount and made a prototype adapter to convert the tripod. Game-changer! I field tested the hell out of this thing ever since and can honestly report that I am 100% satisfied with the end result. Our DGA (Deathgrip Adapter) pans and tilts much smoother than the OEM parts and it's a simple matter to level the reticle once you're on target. Another plus of our DGA kit is that the Deathgrip™ clamp unit can be quickly removed from the ball mount ARCA slot. Allowing you to use the two included ARCA plates to mount additional field items like a spotting scope, rangefinder, chronograph or digital camera. Or if your rifle is equipped with an ARCA rail, you can slide the rifle directly into the ARCA slot on the ball mount. Which is my preferred mounting method. The Deathgrip™ clamp mount works great, but it's best suited to rifles that you either don't have or don't want to install an ARCA rail on, like a wood stocked rifle.

If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call. This product was desperately needed in our industry as there are a lot of these tripods out there, not being used to the best of their potential.

This adapter kit flat out works! If you own a Deathgrip™, buy this ball mount kit, you won't regret it.
