Question about Photography
Ambico is no longer in business, it's probably more worth your time and money investing in a new tripod.

The http://www.tripodquickrelease.com site recommends the QS-14 plate. I have found a better plate for these than the QS-14, which fits but is a bit sloppy.
I took my Ambico to the local camera store and test fitted several candidates. The plate for the Promaster 7100/7150/7400/7450 is a perfect, snug fit. This plate is listed as the 3783 on the tripodquickrelease site. However, the Promasters are current products, so you can probably get a plate for any of those models from almost any camera supply (B&H, Adorama, etc) for much less than the premium prices on tripodquickrelease. I even found them at my local store for much less.

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.)

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.
