The tripod sweep is an effective technique from open guard. However, sometimes your opponent counteracts it by moving their foot around yours and keeping their balance.
When this happens, the angle and positioning you are in, allows you to transition into a lasso guard, which not only provides you with solid control of your opponent, but also with a variety of options.
One of these options is the sweep that Sensei Douglas Santos performs in this video. Pay attention to the positioning of grips, legs and hip angle. Keep in mind that you need to release the grip as soon as your opponent hits the floor in order to avoid the bicep slicer.
