HOW TO MOUNT SPOTTERS OR BINOS

Spotting Scopes - For spotting scopes there is typically a 3/8 or 1/4 inch hole on the bottom of the spotter. We sell 1/4 " ARCA PLATES which will screw into the bottom of your spotter. If you only have 3/8 on the bottom of your spotter please notate that within your order notes and we will include a 3/8 to 1/4 " adapter for free
