So one thing about a slider dipping; my solution

So I bought a slider, and was using it on a tripod, but I had horizontal dipping, so without buying anything else, (heaven knows I don't need more stuff) I came up with this solution. It's probably not good on the mechanics of the heads, but it'll work for now.

Re: So one thing about a slider dipping; my solution

If you have two light stands you could do the same thing no? I have found a solution using one tripod but utilising magic arms and super clamps coming off the tripod legs and attaching to the ends of the slider using a suitable manfrotto adaptor. All stuff I already had. Works perfectly but is heavy. It does still make it easier to reposition than a stand at either end though. Whatever works though right?

Using 2 tripods?
That is what I always do.
It solid and safe.

I've got 2 the same manfrotto tripods for this purpose with a center column I can raise at least 40 cm. So I can adjust the height easily. I added levelheads to both, so I can make sure both ends are level. Even with the terrain is uneven.
