Question about Slik 505QF Tripod
I don't know how to unscrew the SLIK tripod head from the rest of the 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.

I found the info on the following site worked for a Slik 35D tripod, and I expect it would work for most tripods. http://eit.tamu.edu/TDD/tddtripo.htm
