Securing camera to tripod

I have a samsonite tripod and a Son 35MM digital camera. I cannot seem to get the camera attached securely to the tripod. I have it screwed in the quick release pad, but it seems the weight of it snaps it right out. Am I doing it right or is there another way to secure this....thanks.

You have to push the quick release lever all the way over to lock the pad into the base. usually to the left...you will feel the base secure tightly to the tripod. If this doesn't work you may have the wrong quick release for this tripod.

It sounds like the bolt is not theading into the camcorder nut far enough. don't go more than a 1/2 inch up into the nut however. You might need a longer shoe bolt.

not sure about the brand tripod but all good ones have a 1/4 standard screw that has blank shoulder so it spins freely yet stays in place there..see your local pro camera store for a 'camera mounting screw'..... or order from samy's camera online

Try http://www.tripodquickrelease.com/Generic_Tripods.htm for that part. There is listed the widest selection of quick releases and support more brands than any other web site I’ve seen. Since the tripod is unknown they are the best bet.

My lock would not even close, so I had to buy rope to secure it on my flight. I secured it so tight that the lock actually locked on the flight. Now it's locked it won't open - not even on my code n


As long as there is pressure on a code lock, you can't open it. You should try to secure it with the rope again, so the lock is "free" then try your code again.

Hi Julie.... These tripods are often a wee bit difficult to tighten down. I use a pair of common pliers to snug down the thumb screws to be sure the tripod stays put. Joe

thanks for choosing Fixya!

I HAVE SAMSONITE LUGGUAGE , I FORGET THE LOCK PAD CONBINATION


Try asking your questions again in the proper category since the expertise in this area is tripods and cameras, not luggage. If you ended up in tripods after starting in luggage, contact the FixYa staff to correct the problem. The other categories experts will be much better at answering your specific problem than the photo guys.

Samsonite Briefcase, fogot the Combination Lock can not open it


There is no quick fix, it wouldn't be very secure if there was.

There are 999 possible combinations remaining and if you start at 001 you'd be extremely unlucky to need to go through all of them. Try 999 straight away though, sometimes the tumblers can appear to be set to 000 when they're actually at 999.

T-mount is the correct term.  Ebay, if you go that direction has some.  The other alternative is B & H Photo Video.
