What is the Tether Table?

ta·ble  noun:
a piece of furniture consisting of a smooth flat slab

What if we told you a table can be so much more than just a piece of furniture?

The Tether Table Aero is a tool, solution, and multiple utility piece. Pieces of furniture can’t travel with you, but the tether table can. It’s not only a table for photographers to use when tethering. It’s for makeup artists, on-location computer users, script supervisors, presenters and much more!

The Details


The sleek and attractive Tether Table is made completely of a lightweight T6 Aerospace Aluminum, brushed in either a silver or non-reflective matte black. There are multiple Tether Table Aeros that come in various sizes to fit the laptop and workstation needs of each individual user.


Each Tether Table features the LAJO-4 ProBracket, allowing multiple mounting options on any 1/4″-20 and 3/8″ thread, 5/8″ stud as well as Arca-style mounting.  These receptors are common for tripods and traditional studio stands. Adapters are available for music and other industry stands.



The Tether Tables are less than 3.5 lbs (1.58kg) with a maximum load capacity of 30 lbs (13.5kg) and there is very little flex, which helps with stability. Each Tether Table is backed by a Tether Tools Lifetime Warranty.
