Question about Photography
The platform broke (possible dropped) through the outer ring of the top axle. can we get a new head or replace this part? Not professional, just family use. Thanks!
Send some pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org and we might be able to see what the issue is. Unfortunately, Slik doesn't carry spare parts so if the entire pan-head is broken you may need a new tripod.

Below the tripod head you will see what looks like a "sandwich" of two chromed pieces of metal. The lower one is the top of the tripod's center column. The upper one is the bottom of the tripod head. Using wrenches or other tools, unscrew the upper one counterclockwise to separate it from the lower one. There is a 1/4" threaded stud which holds them together.
If you plan on replacing the head with a pro head like a Manfrotto, you will need a reducing bushing. Most heads expect a 3/8" stud, and this tripod's thread is a standard 1/4" stud. The adapters are available through Wolf, Adorama, B&H, and the like.

- the part was cheap but the shipping was too high in my case. Good luck.
