Dear spiderinkart,
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.

Sincerely,
Agent Allan

SOURCE: I bought a used camera tripod that does not fit my camera

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.

Ineed a tilt head for vivitar 914 tripod


Because of the age of the tripod, and the fact that Vivitar no longer sells or supports tripods, I think you would be better served if you bought a new tripod. Slik and Manfrotto are two that will offer you a great price, durability and in the case of the Manfrotto, parts available from a wide range of sources including the USA distributor: www.bogenimaging.us you can see tripod and parts at www.BogenTripodParts.com Otherwise you could try ebay or craigs list to find the same model and use it for parts.

Missing a screw!


Hi Jonathan.
You can get the part you need (QB-4W) off the web. The part doesn't have a wheel, it's called a quick release plate. It's going to cost about 12. usd. Here is just one site you can find it.

Hope this helps.

Need part for Quantaray QSX-DigiPro 8500


This is a longshot but it may well work if you can't get one from the manufacturer mailed to you for a reasonable price, there are mini tripods at most drugstores with the base plate and screw that are pretty cheap you may be able to take the screw from one of those and use it, they are all the same thread.

I did not have any luck in locating the leg locking assembly for my Vivitar V3000. Instead, I plastic welded both that were broken on mine. So far, so good!
