I have the same problem and came across this solution http://www.birdforum.net/archive/index.php/t-33708.html, basically tapping and replacing the threads with a stronger steel insert. Haven't tried it myself yet but plan to.

How do I change the thread size on my monopod?


You should not need to change the thread size on your monopod. All tripods, monopods, cameras and other accessories have standard fittings. Check that you haven't accidentally crossed the threads on your Panasonic which would make it difficult to locate the threads to tighten it.

Also, check that you are not trying to screw the monopod into the hole. Some cameras have a smaller hole beside the tripod thread.

You may be able to contact your monopod manufacturer in case they supply an adapter that wasn't supplied with your monopod.

Ball slipping


Check out this page and see if there are any parts here that might be what you're looking for:
http://www.bogentripodparts.com/parts/head322RC2.htm
However, I'm not sure there's a way to fix a ball head tripod due to how the tension works for the ball that it rests on. You can also order a new head from the same website. If you have any questions, shoot us an email at email@spartanphotocenter.com

Head will not tighten on AF2100 Pistol grip


one of the treads in the tripodas head is broken try unscrewing the grip the other way to remove it, then examine the grip, if one of the threads on the part of the grip that screws in to the head, is broken then you might be able to get a new grip, and that might work, but there might also be damaged threads inside the tripod head, in which case you neet to replace the head if you can, but if you cant, then I do not think that you can repair that tripod

Can't figure out how to straighten and level the camera


if you have lost a srew or wing nut, it will be loose where there should be one. set it up and then try to raise or move it around in one spot. iof it moves than look for a screw hole. the handle itself sets the rotation try unloosing the handle..

On the bottom of your camera there will be a threaded metal socket. It should look silver in color and appear like the inside of a hardware nut -- threads that a bolt can screw into.

On the top of the tripod is a threaded bolt that fits into the socket on the bottom of the camera. Place the bolt gently into the socket, align it with the camera and gently turn it to the right (righty-tighty) to engage. Be careful not to strip the threads by tightening without aligning the bolt and the camera.

You should tighten it to where it is snug but don't force it.

Manfrotto Tripod Ball-grip Head 322RC2


If you look on the ring that goes around the ball, on the side by the red tension gauge, you'll see an indentation. It is just barely visible on the product shot above.

In the hole, you'll find what looks like an odd shaped bolt. It is actually a threaded post inside a nut.

Use an Allen wrench (hex key) to tighten this post.

Be careful though, a little tension here goes a long way. You should probably turn it no more than 1/8 to 1/4 turn and then test it. If it still isn't tight enough, repeat until you are satisfied.

You should probably also talk to a trained technician at somepoint to see if the loosening is indicative of a larger problem. I really wouldn't know one way or the other. I just discovered the calibration post by taking mine apart.

Need parts to repair pan handle


I just had this problem! I took it to Ace hardware and the guys helped me out, big time. I have a PH-358 panhandle and the same piece fell of during a shoot into some brush and dirt outside.

We (they) fixed it using a #6 metric bolt and butterfly wing nut along with two grommets (3/8 ID and 5/8 OD). It worked perfectly! Not only does it hold the handle together but you can tighten or loosen the handle as well using the butterfly wing nut.
