Broken quick release plate lever on Vanguard PH-32 3-way Photo Magnesium Alloy Panhead.

Unfortunately, Vanguard does not sell replacement pieces, you may have to ship it off to them in order to get it fixed. It's either that or you can buy a new pan head or quick release adapter. You can find those at, sometimes though pan heads don't come off of a tripod.

I have a SLIK Single Action Panhead Tripod. How do I mount the camera on the tripod?

it is a quick release plate. there is usually a button or lever to release the plate. you then screw the plate into the bottom of your camera or camcorder and mount the plate back onto the tripod. you can leave the plate on your camera when you store it to allow for faster setup.
