Here are some more details of this tripod for your reference, another tripod featuring the flipped locks from the HERMES series.

Same with the reviewer, many people prefer this type of quick action lever locks which provide swift and efficient extending and retracting of the leg tubes, very easy to operate, plus, the tightness of the lever locks are adjustable to be what you preferred. The innovative stable leg joints design of this tripod effectively prevents loosening of the tripod legs from the apex due to frequent use, so there is no need to repeatedly tighten them. The friction but shims between leg sections are as long as 40mm maximizing isolation and mainly rigidity of the joints of fully extended legs. Max height of 143cm when it’s fully extended, easily meet the demand of most photographers. Weighs only 3 pounds with a load capacity of up to 16KG, you will be happy to take it for travelling.

Considerate extra mounting sockets on the apex provide connection to other accessories and the reversible dual-threaded stud works with any ballhead or camera.
