This works fantastic it all aspects. It is solid, easily holds the largest of the dutch ovens even with a full load of chili. The only problem I do have with the product is the size: 50" makes it...

While on my last camping trip, I packed a hacksaw, and stopped at a hardware store on the way to the site, and picked up three 1/2" couples (2 inches long) and picked up a 1/2" dye. I also already had a MAP gas torch (lazy mans way of lighting a fire). So when onsite the modification project began: 1) Cut the legs about half way 2) threaded each of the cut ends with the dye 3) Checked for fit/thread depth 4) Used the MAP gas torch to heat up the threaded ends till they glowed red 5) Dipped the hot threaded ends in oil to prevent rusting. 6) Let them cool, and assemble the threaded ends into the couple. 7) Test it out by cooking your favorite chili recipe. As long as you get the 2" long couples, and thread to at least 3/4" f a inch, you don't loose any structural integrity, but gain a tripod that is easy to transport. It even fits nicely into a backpack.
