Valve Index Base Station Tripod

Sharing is caring!

The Valve Index base station tripod is a great way to make sure your VR experience is as immersive and comfortable as possible.

The tripod has three different heights that can be adjusted with the included toolkit, which makes it easy for any user to find their perfect height. Whether you’re playing a game or watching a movie, this item will help keep you at the moment while also being able to adjust your own position easily.

The new Base Station tripod is designed for the Valve index and has a height of about 2.4 meters with an adjustable height range from 1.3 to 3.1 meters, depending on how you want it set up.

It is made out of aluminum alloy material, making it lightweight but also durable enough to withstand heavy winds or any other outdoor conditions that might come your way while using this tripod mount for your camera equipment, including the device itself.

This base station will allow you to take high-quality photos and videos quickly by locking in place with one hand by simply pressing down on the blue button at the bottom of the base station.

The telescoping legs adjust according to what needs are needed for different shooting situations so you can get just close.

What is a valve index tripod stand?

The valve index tripod stand is three-legged support designed to hold valves in place while they are being tested.

It was originally developed by the Scientech Corporation, but there have been other companies that have replicated this design using different materials and methods.

This device is made from aluminum alloy for durability and strength so it won’t break when holding heavy equipment. The three legs of this tripod fit together with a simple twist so no tools are necessary to assemble or disassemble it.

Tips for setting up SteamVR Base Station 2.0

Setting up the SteamVR Base Station 2.0 is a pretty straightforward process, especially if you have already done it before on an older version of the HTC Vive.

The only difference in this new model is that they added a sync cable to make things easier with fewer wires and cords hanging around. It took me about five minutes to set mine up and I was ready to go! Here’s how it works:

  • Download SteamVR Base Station 2.0 from the Valve store.
  • Connect your computer to a power source and plug it in.
  • Connect your laptop to an HDMI port on your TV or monitor.
  • Plugin the USB cable that came with the base station into one of its ports, then plug another end into a USB port on your laptop.
  • Turn off any wireless connections on both devices (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth).
  • Launch SteamVR from within Steam by clicking Library > Tools > VR Mode > Launch SteamVR.
  • Click “Play” when prompted by Windows 8 for drivers installation and wait for all components to install before continuing with the setup process.
  • When prompted, select “Yes” to allow access through the firewall if necessary.
  • Select “Set up New Station” when prompted and follow instructions until complete (should take about 5 minutes).

Valve Index base station tripod adapter

The Valve Index base station tripod adapter is a must-have for any VR headset, and the perfect accessory to enhance your gaming experience.

The base station tripod adapter turns any standard camera tripod into a high-quality Vive Pro 360 degree camera rig with adjustable angles.

The design of the adapter allows it to be easily mounted on top of existing tripods which means you can use your own equipment. This ensures that the adapter fits perfectly onto virtually anything from small compact cameras to heavy DSLRs.


Can the Valve Index base station be mounted upside down?

Yes, you can mount it upside down. You should be able to fit a VESA 200 x 200 pattern on the rear of your stand or wall.

Is the Valve index compatible with Vive base stations?

Yes, it is! Just be mindful that the controllers might not function properly when you’re in a Vive base station setup. You will need to manually adjust their position for them to work correctly.

Can you use 1.0 and 2.0 base stations together?

That depends on what kind of base stations you’re using. I recommend getting 2.0 base stations if possible, but some 1.0 base stations support 2.0 signals as well.


The Valve Index Base Station Tripod is a sleek, low-profile tripod that makes it easy to use your new VR headset.

If you’ve just picked up the latest generation of SteamVR headsets and are looking for someplace to put them down when they aren’t being used, this could be an excellent solution.

You can place your newest hardware on its own dedicated stand or mount it onto any desk with ease thanks to the included mounting bracket.
