Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a quick source for parts for Ambico tripods (: I have one. Fortunately, they are not very expensive- eBay had several for less than $10 starting bid.
I got parts for my Velbon tripod from: http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZspartanphotocenter
You may wish to contact them, perhaps they have a source for you.

possibly try http://www.tripodquickrelease.com/Ambico_Quick_Releases.htm

I have a Ambico Onyx Videophile V-0541 that the quick release plate is missing.  The square one shown on the above web page appears to be the one I need / want.  F.Y.I., I have a older Samsung Tripod that the quick release plate is a few hairs to small.  The camera bounces / moves slightly when I use the Samsung QRP in the Ambico Onyx Videophile V-0541.  Any who it appears a new version of the Samsung is sold at Curcuit City, if that will help any one.  A little putty may keep the QRP from moving.

SOURCE: Screwing camera onto tripod quick release

Usually the camcorder has a hole next to the mounting screwhole. The plastic nub fit into the unthreaded hole, the mounting screw screws into the threaded hole. The nub is to help prevent the camcorder from rotating while you are using it on the tripod.

I need one large and one small leg clamp for my Ambico Tripod.


Parts are not available for that tripod. Unless you find the exact same tripod (Ambico model numbers are often wrong and reference different models) then you cannot get parts.

My handle that raises the tripod mount broke. Ambico has a lifetime warranty but I cannot find any contact info. Is Ambico legit?


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

The screws on my tripod will not tightened


Take out the whole Camera Plate. there is a plastic cap on the top of the tripoid, right by the end of your tripod extender, that comes out with a little pulling it. Now, have a look at the end of the knob housing from which your screw accidentaly came out. You will see a perfect spot in wich you need to re- insert the nut that came out. Once you do it, all you need to do is to re- insert the knob back into place, and it will "bite" the nut again at the end of the housing. Re- install the whole plate back on top of your tripod. Finally, put the plastic cap back at the top. You might need to gently tap it in. Done deal . Problem resolved ! Enjoy your 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.)
