Attaching a strap to the Libec T58 Tripod

I would like to attach a shoulder strap directly to a Libec T58 tripod, but am not sure where the best places would be to attach it, since there aren't any obvious places. I want to be sure that I attach the strap in places that -- with everyday use and strain -- won't damage the tripod. Thanks for any suggestions you might be able to provide!

I had a Porter-Cable that I was able to repair using three small pieces of lexan and a bandsaw. I took off one of the latches that were good and traced the pattern on the lexan and sawed out the handles. Cleaned them up with sandpaper andthen stacked them and drilled out the holes. Then I drilled two more holes for clearance for two 6-32 machine screws and nuts. Put the whole thing together and installed it - still working after four years.

I need a tripod head locking handle. This is the handle that maintains the vertical orientation of the tripod head.


Various makes of tripod head use different methods of attaching the pan and tilt handle. Try an Ebay search for spares for your particular make and model.

How can I replace the quick release head for the libec th659dv tripod. A student has lost the plate but UK retailers do not seem to stock libec replacements.


Try a plate from another tripod. I have three different tripods, and the quick-release plates are all interchangeable.

Attaching head to tripod


video cameras come with a 1/4-20 threaded socket in the.  Make sure the 3066 has this size screw projecting form the place where the camer is attached.  The two Manfrotto should be compatible
The only time fitting together becomes a problem is if you are into the heavy duty professional equipment.
We especially like the Manfrotto fluid heads and have several in our facility.

The leg is slightly off the track, which is a curved piece which fits along the tripod support rail. If you're not careful when collapsing the legs you'll force the leg to go off-track like this.
