Ball slipping


Check out this page and see if there are any parts here that might be what you're looking for:

However, I'm not sure there's a way to fix a ball head tripod due to how the tension works for the ball that it rests on. You can also order a new head from the same website. If you have any questions, shoot us an email at email@spartanphotocenter.com

Monopod is slipping


If the monopod is slipping and getting shorter as you use it, then find the clamp that is not secure. flip open the clamp lever and using a small socket wrench, turn that nut about 1/8 of a turn. Test the slippage. if is still slips give it another 1/8 turn. Do this until is is not slipping. Do not over tighten the nut or you may damage the clamp or leg tube.

If it is the head, I will need more info as to which head you have on that monopod.

The tripod legs on my manfrotto 3433 slip. the clamping apparatus doesn't have enough grip and just the weight of my video camera is enough to make the legs start sliding down. I see an allen socket...


Hi toolroom347,

There are different clips on the tripod which allow you to adjust the settings for a firmer grip, you also need to extent the gap between the legs of the tripod for a firmer grip, this will help you to set the optimal settings for your tripod which will be fair enough to carry the weight of your camera.

Also a simple solution to stop this slip problem is to carry a small piece of cloth which has guide good grip or a rubber material and then place your camera on it , this will work excellent for a firmer grip.
This has definitely worked for me.

Hope this helps you as well...:)

The knob/screw that loosens and tightens to move the brace up and down the center base broke off. I've only had this tripod for about a year and have hardly used it.


very cheap tripod. might want to find a better tripod.. they don't have a long life expectancy as they are made for cheaper camera systems and not suited for heavy cameras,, have you thought of buying a better tripod. i don't want yo uto think i am making fun of your tripod but quantaray anything is usually not that good.. quantaray products are usually sold in packages that you buy on-line when you buy one of their lenses and they pitch a tripod in which are chinese tripods and made very cheaply.. i would not trust one of my cameras on top of a quantaray tyripod ever.. they are just too unstable.. sorry . but you may want to try a kalaimar or a manfrotto or go to craigslist or ebay and buy a used bogen or manfrotto (same tripod) for a fraction of the price of a new one and they are considered to be professional and will last for many years.. i have used the same one for over 20 years and it still works as good as it did the day i got it..

A couple of the lever locks on my Manfrotto 055XB tripod are no longer sufficiently locking the legs so they slip. How do I tighten them?


Use an 8mm, I believe, socket and tighten 1/4 turn the nuts on the lower half of the leg lock. For instance, the top leg lock is connected to the top and middle leg. Tighten the lower 2 nuts (located on the middle leg half of the lock) 1/5 turn. If that does not do it, tighten 1/4 turn again. Be sure not to over-tighten.

My QSX 2001 tripod is missing the handle that tightens the camera platform. Are parts available?


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.

Manfrotto Tripod Ball-grip Head 322RC2


If you look on the ring that goes around the ball, on the side by the red tension gauge, you'll see an indentation. It is just barely visible on the product shot above.

In the hole, you'll find what looks like an odd shaped bolt. It is actually a threaded post inside a nut.

Use an Allen wrench (hex key) to tighten this post.

Be careful though, a little tension here goes a long way. You should probably turn it no more than 1/8 to 1/4 turn and then test it. If it still isn't tight enough, repeat until you are satisfied.

You should probably also talk to a trained technician at somepoint to see if the loosening is indicative of a larger problem. I really wouldn't know one way or the other. I just discovered the calibration post by taking mine apart.
