Question about Manfrotto 679B Monopod

Open Question

Head mount The exposed mounting screw has 2 sizes in one. The head must screw up or down to expose the smaller size, but that's the size I need most. How can I get it back since the head seems too tight to move. Thanks Carl

Does the company that makes this tripod sell the small square part that screws into the camera?

Tripod quick mount plates (the part that is secured to the camera) are specific to tripod manufacturer. A tripod without a mating mounting plate is pretty much worthless as there is no way to mount the camera to it.

You will need to contact the manufacturer (or a reputable camera store) and provide the model of your tripod and the size of the threaded mount in you camera - most are either 1/4" or 3/8".

Good luck!

How do I get a replacement for my window mount part that is stripped and is it warranted??

The warranty is expired unless you bought with extended Square Trade warranty, etc. The newer model 78-4407C is available for only 21.49 and shipping from B&H Photo Video Bushnell Car Window Mount so the cost of repairs should be weighed against that price. Consider drilling and tapping the hole to install a Helicoil or similar repair insert which will re-thread back to the original size, probably 1/4-20 machine screw. All sizes are available at auto parts stores and come with the needed tap - which may be a custom size for the insert.

I am looking for advice on how to mount a Ball Head on the plate of a regular tripod, So far I have not found a Ball Head that has the same size thread in the bottom. Is an adapter available as a solution....

The bottom threads on most tripod heafs are 3/8", but some are 1/4"/ The mounting screws on MOST tripods are 3/8", but I have seen `/4" (especially on monopods. IF:
tripod=3/8 head = 1/4 need mounting plate 3/8 female to 1/4 male
tripod = 1/4 head - 1/4 nothing
tripod 3/8 head 3/8 nothing'
tripod 1/4 head = 3/8 there is an adapter/reducer that screws into the 3/8
' female and reduces that to 1/4"

Lost screw that attaches scope to bushnell window mount #78-4405

If the screw is standard, it is probably what's called a 1/4 x 20 screw. They only cost a few cents at your local hardware store (Lowe's, Home Depot, Ace, etc.). If it is proprietary, you may need to take the scope and the tripod to the hardware store and try a couple of sizes to see if anything fits.

Of course, you could also try bushnell's website to see if you can order parts.

I have a QS-TM and I want to know if there is an attatchment to let me use this tripod for a canon camera?

Tripod mounts are standard size for most cameras, there are strictly speaking 2 sizes but it is unusual to find a modern camera with the wrong size; it should screw directly into the camera (assuming you have a "standard" mounting plate with the tripod!) If it is too large/small you need an adapter, 3/8" to 1/4" or vice versa, but that would be unusual. Most 35mm camera bodies accept a 1/4" diameter, 20 thread-count screw

I have a Swarovski tripod with a Swarovski/Manfrotto (both names are on it) head which I would like to remove to replace it with a ball head. Can anyone tell me how I can remove this? Thank you.

Extend the extension so you are able to look at the underside of the mounting flange. You will see at least three screws requiring a slot type screw driver. Loosen these screw so the head just protrudes from the flange, make sure the head is locked in a position and unscrew it from the center mounting stud. Left to loosen and right tightens.

VGB3 leg lock broke

On the velbon vgb 3, the leg locks consist of a lever, one or two pieces of metal and a plastic piece. The metal and plastic pieces rest in a depression against the lever. When the lever is pulled out, pressure against the smaller leg section is released. When the lever is pushed in, pressure against the smaller leg section is exerted, locking the legs in place. On the back side of each joint, there is a phillips head screw which acts as a stop to keep the leg section from coming all the way out. When the screw is backed out, the leg section can be removed, exposing the latching mechanism. If the only problem is that the latch mechanism came apart, it can simply be reassembled. If, however, something broke and allowed the latch assemby to come apart, that will have to be dealt with as well. My guess is that the phillips screw may have become loose, and the latch came apart.
