Set the tripod to working height.

1) Level two legs with a post level on the center column between the legs.

2) Then level the third leg.

Your description is unclear. How do you level a tripod leg?

Very easy and quick after you have done it a couple of times.

I use this one:

It comes with a rubber band for attaching to the column.

Your actually leveling the center column.

Ps. Harbor Freight also has a post level.
