It can not only be used as a normal camera stand / tripod to use, but also can be used for climbing stick when you hike.
For the tripod, you need to attach the tripod legs upside-down to the monopod stick with the metal screw.
For the hiking stick/monopod, you need to attach a rubber tip which screws into the bottom of the monopod.
The whole tripod can extend to the maximum height of 69-70 inches,but at that height if you attach a heavy SLR body and lens,
it is advisable to hold the tripod - as while the metal strength can hold the weight,the tripod legs are short and lie low on the tripod,
hence won't be as stable as a regular tripod with much longer legs.
The tripod folds up pretty small for travel,as all of it fits into an 18-inch length bag with a drawstring closure.
Once the crank is jammed, rotate the triangular central shaft can make the crank loose and get it back down
