Hi there, welcome to FixYa.

That screw is just screwed into the top plate. Just unscrew it. If it's really difficult, you can use a pair of pliers to hold the screw, then turn the pliers. - Make sure you don't damage the threads that screw into the camera. You can help prevent this by using a cloth like a t-shirt. The cloth will help prevent damage incase you have to grip it hard. Just remember to be carefull.

Thanks for coming to FixYa.

Your best bet is probably either Ebay, or the manufacturer. You may get lucky with a tour of your local camera stores, especially those that deal in pre-owned gear.

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

How to Unscrew SLIK tripod head from the rest of 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.
