It has rack pinion that will rack out to the double extension and then the screw adjustment extends the camera to triple extension. Other features include a double swing back, swing front, reversible back, no hinges, focusing glass protected. Available in six sizes: quarter plate, half plate, full plate, 10 x 8, 12 x 10, 15 x 12.
