The Magic Carpet Carriage comes equip with a lockable brake for safe transport and portability.

Quick release legs
The Magic Carpet comes with fully adjustable ‘tool-less’ quick release legs – enabling quick-setup – that also fold away for transportation. Precise levelling is achieved using the feet for fine height adjustments.
Mount the Magic Carpet straight onto your tripod legs or tripod head using either the
1/4″ UNC or 3/8″ UNC thread. Both the short and long tracks come with multiple mount points to attach your tripod(s). Use one tripod in the centre or two at either end (recommended) for greater stability and heavier payloads.
Interchangeable carriage end caps
The end caps & carriage are universally designed to be interchangeable between the short and long length tracks. This enables the flexibility to easily upgrade to a longer or shorter length track without the need hiring another full slider system.
Reversible camera thread
The Magic Carpet comes with a reversible thread so you can quickly switch between a 3/8″ UNC thread and a 1/4″ UNC thread. This allows for either attaching a camera straight to the slider or using a ball head or tripod head for larger video cameras.
