• Your rental must be returned to its pick up location or postmarked by your shipper before the same day cut-off time. Contact the location you’ll be bringing the return package to in advance to find out what the same day cut-off time is. Remember, local pickup spots and ship centers have varied hours!

• For your security, get a receipt from whoever you are dropping your gear off with for return.

The Manfrotto 222 Grip Action Ball Head allows you to operate your head one-handed via a grip handle which incorporates a ball lock lever. To use this unique pistol grip-style head, simply squeeze, position, and let go to be in your new, preferred position. This eliminates the step of having to lock down your position with a twist knob, like with many other ball head types. Please note that this head is not suitable for continuous tracking of moving subjects since one must always grip the lever to release the ball for free movement and thus your hand would tire after prolonged use. This ball head is ideal for stationary subjects where you need to make very quick and precise adjustments one-handed, which frees your other hand for adjusting products or directing your subject.

For a newer version of this same ball head, please see the Manfrotto 322RC2 Grip Action Ball Head.


  • • If during use you find that this head isn't holding tension well, it may be because the screw on the non-handgrip side needs to be tightened, which can be done with an allen wrench. Squeeze the handle and make a 1/4 turn to tighten and increase tension. Also note that there is a wheel tensioner on the head itself but the screw can be tightened if the wheel isn't sufficient.
  • • This ball head is not recommended for use with lenses 200mm or above. For longer lenses, we recommend the Wimberley Gimbal II.
