Adjustable bracket to attach two video cameras

OK I have done a quick search but can't find anything. How can I mount two video cameras alongside each other to fit onto my Satchler tripod?

Has anyone like Manfrotto manufactured such a mount or will I have to make my own?
Thanks
Steve

Monfrotto does manufacture something like that. I seem to recall a flat bar type attachment that went to either a QR on the main head and then you mounted 2 heads one on either end for the cameras but can't find that one. There is another type of mount on their website that might work. It's the #131 I think. It's under video tripod accessories, clamps and brackets. I went to copy the URL to it and my fingers slipped on my keyboard
:-( so I not only lost it but almost shut down my laptop, sorry.
GOT IT!!!! Here it is. tripods, heads, monopods, light stands, camera supports, lighting supports, professional tripod 131DD - CROSS ARM,DBL END+DBL HD SUPPR
Number 131DD

Thanks Don that looks pretty good. I am unsure how I would fit it to a quick release but it's got to be doable. PLus I can slide the cameras to different settings.

Thanks
Steve

Interesting tool. Here are some reviews. Though I think I'd find these tools easier to use.

Steve, it appears that the bottom is flat and I would assume (although I hate to do that cause you know what people say about assuming anything) that the bottom is tapped with a 3/8 hole to thread on to either a center column or ball the same as you would attach a typical head. So if thats the case, simply attach the slide plate to the bottom and attach to the tripod head on the tripod as you would a camera. Depending on which QR plate would work either the 577 or 357 (longer plate). I believe the plates can be purchased seperately but I might be wrong about that.

Thats more like it. A bit more sturdy than the Manfrotto.
Thanks

Just found this on Ebay and ordered one. So cheap it's worth a look. Feedback on the item seems very good.
