To get the camera to secure properly to the release plate make sure that the bolt is screwed entirely into the camera bottom and then there should be a larger knob that rotates around the bolt that tightens down to the camera body. What I do to get a really tight fit is point the arrow on the bottom of the release plate labeled lens (that arrow when properly mounted should be pointed towards the front of the lens) to a 45 degree angle to the left of the lens, then I snug down the knob, and then I grab the release plate and turn it until the lens arrow is aligned with the front of the lens. As far as quick releaseing the camera from the legs when secured on the release plate you should be able to pull the lever away from the head and it should simply release the camera with the plate attached.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Your tripod is a K-Mart brand item and it will fit any camera but it's clearly missing the quick-release foot which most tripods have these days. This part screws to the bottom of the camera and enables the camera to be quickly attached and removed from the tripod.
Unfortunately there is no standard foot shared between manufacturers and most tripod manufacturers don't even have a standard design foot which fits all models in their range.
You can still order a replacement foot from:-
But at US$18.99 it may be cheaper to buy a new tripod!
I hope that you appreciate the time which I've taken to research and answer your question and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.
