"Fracolizer" Sled Weight Plate System

This is a weight plate system designed to work with Tiffen big sleds: Ultra2, Original Ultra Cine series, Vector, Clipper series sleds. Any of their full size sleds that have the dovetail bottom.

The weight plate attaches to the bottom dovetail of the sled by sliding on and it has a locking system that allows the weight to be placed fore or aft up to 5" for additional balance support if needed.

This weight plate system was made to allow the operator to balance the sled with a shorter post when desired. I built and tested a few prototype versions for about 7 months before making this one available to others. As you can see in the photos, you have 4 weight options. If the aluminum plate itself is not enough weight, you simply add one of the extra weights by screwing it on the bottom of the aluminum plate.

Approximate weights of the system are as follows:

Main dovetail system- 1.0 lb
Weight # 1- 0.8 lb
Weight # 2- 1.25 lb
Weight # 3- 1.65 lb

I will allow a 5 day trial period and if you are not satisfied, send it back (in good condition) and I will refund your money minus the shipping.

$ 650.00 Total
Shipping will be additional

To order, call or email me directly. Also if you have additional questions please feel free to contact me.

We are now offering the Sled weighted system (for a more compact post) with IDX or Anton Bauer pre drilled holes for battery plates. You can use a battery as your weight if you need the extra power. Same low price.

We still have some in-stock and for anyone in the LA area that wants to see one in person first I am working on the Paramount lot for the next few weeks or so. Glad to meet anyone for a demo.
