Question about Slik U-212DX Tripod

1 Answer

Replacement knob needed

I am missing the adjusting knob used to tighten the head on top of a vintage SLIK MASTER DELUXE TRIPOD. Without it the head will not remain in position on top of the tripod. I have a photo available of the tripod head showing the place for the missing knob. Where to purchase a replacement part? Substitute part? Help? Thanks, Keith

By elevator crank handle I presume you mean the centre column adjuster. May be available from the manufacturer or importer, otherwise try Ebay or your local friendly camera service centre.

Missing Tripod parts


Without knowing the brand of tripod i cannot help. There are some brands of tripods that are made for the retailer and the name is licensed, so the name brand does not support or stock repair parts. Especially if the tripod is an inexpensive one. Because of the model and make of you tripod, I would recommend you throw it out and buy another one. In my opinion Slik and Manfrotto are two very good ones. Slik for the lesser expensive and Manfrotto for the more durable, expensive, parts are almost always available unless is it really old tripod. Find some Manfrotto tripods at: www.BogenTripodParts.com

Head will not tighten on AF2100 Pistol grip


one of the treads in the tripodas head is broken try unscrewing the grip the other way to remove it, then examine the grip, if one of the threads on the part of the grip that screws in to the head, is broken then you might be able to get a new grip, and that might work, but there might also be damaged threads inside the tripod head, in which case you neet to replace the head if you can, but if you cant, then I do not think that you can repair that tripod

SLIK 512QF tripod


Carole31,
I have the same tripod, and the screw shown in the photo you posted is to lock down the rotation of the tripod's head, i.e., what a video camera uses to pan (horizontally) across a scene. The large knob is used for the same in the vertical direction (up and down motion).

How to Unscrew SLIK tripod head from the rest of 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.
