DIY [#16] Gear/Kit–Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 RainCover [w/doors], 03/13

I sometimes begin a DIY by fashioning a model as I have here for “rain doors.”

I knew I would build some type screen to protect the tripod tray from rain. Today, using cardboard and a wood disc, I know how I will construct my so-called “rain doors.”I’ll use black high-density polyethylene cut to the triangle shapes you see and connected to a wood disc at the top by a single hinge for each.They will be behind the orange rain cover, overlapping the tray on the sides so water runs off. The disc will fit over the bottom of the tripod head. Stay tuned…
