Quick release head QRA-667 on the Chaser EFL-3 tripod stripped

The quick release attachment listed above stripped rendering the tripod useless for my purposes. Is there a replacement for this?  The screw connection on the center rod to the QRA-667 looks okay.

Is this like a duplicate question of the one I just answered? I will pesume not.

If this is an emergency, take your equipment to the hardwre store. They should be able to sell you a nut/bolt/screw of the approximate proper size. If you can wait, visit your photo shop and have them order the parts you require.

Thanks for your question at FixYa.com

SOURCE: Where can i get a quick release shoe or platform

Velbon no longer manufactures this part. I can be ordered from a different manufacturer through www.tripodquickrelease.com or www.precision-camera.com. It may look different because it's a different manufacturer, but it is the right size and shape.

DONT KNOW HOW CAMERA GOES ON TRIPOD WILL ANY CAMERA WORK ON IT OR DOES JUST CERTAIN ONES WORK ON IT IT IS A DYNEX 60 " DIGITAL TRIPOD


It is usually obvious where the camera goes, so I am pretty sure that what you have is a tripod with a quick release plate that doesn't have the quick release plate fitted. This is very common when you buy a tripod second-hand. The quick release plates get attached to a camera and people forget to reunite them with the tripod before disposing of it.

If you bought the tripod new, then look in the packaging for a plate with a screw to attach to the normal camera tripod screw in socket. There ought to be more than one. The screw is standard throughout the world, except maybe Germany that used to use a different size. Any camera you have will have this socket on the bottom, a threaded hole about a quarter inch (5 or 6mm) in diameter. The plate will be a design peculiar to this make of tripod, and if you lose it or don't have it you will be unlikely to get another.

Try www.TripodQuickRelease.com for that part. There is listed the widest selection of quick releases and support more brands than any other web site I've seen. Because your tripod is not supported by the manufacturer; parts lists and pars are not available, you should measure the opening and see what other brand quick releases will work paying attention to the shape and locking mechanism. Otherwise just get another tripod.

How to put a camera on it


If it's a quick release tripod you need to remove the quick release plate (Usually a release lever to the side of the top of the tripod) and then fasten the plate securely to the camera and then the plate to the tripod. Older non-quick-release tripods have a knurled screw located below the flat area where the camera is attached. If the screw is missing, get a relacement from your local hardware store - 1/4" -20. (Find a way to keep the new one from getting lost.)

I bought a used camera tripod that does not fit my camera


Your tripod is a K-Mart brand item and it will fit any camera but it's clearly missing the quick-release foot which most tripods have these days. This part screws to the bottom of the camera and enables the camera to be quickly attached and removed from the tripod.

Unfortunately there is no standard foot shared between manufacturers and most tripod manufacturers don't even have a standard design foot which fits all models in their range.

You can still order a replacement foot from:-

http://tripodquickrelease.com/Focal_Quick_Releases.htm

But at US$18.99 it may be cheaper to buy a new tripod!

I hope that you appreciate the time which I've taken to research and answer your question and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.
