Where can i buy a quick release mount for my Slik Able 300DX

Try for that part. There is listed the widest selection of quick releases and support more brands than any other web site I've seen.

I have a SLIK Single Action Panhead Tripod. How do I mount the camera on the tripod?

it is a quick release plate. there is usually a button or lever to release the plate. you then screw the plate into the bottom of your camera or camcorder and mount the plate back onto the tripod. you can leave the plate on your camera when you store it to allow for faster setup.

Inherited a Slik u2i2 but has a head that I can't

I think you shuld take your Tripod down to the hardware store and have someone evaluate and assist you to solve this challenge. Take your camera with you also.

The quick release tab is on the top but there is no plate for a camera to mount on to...guess it's lost. no serial number on the tripod. Brushed aluminum legs and it's got to be about 8 or 9 years old. Can...

Unfortunately not. It's a budget, no-name model with absolutely no back up support so you have no chance of buying a replacement quick release plate. The plates themselves are not standardised and are not only unique to each manufacturer but often not even standard within a single manufacturer's product range.

You'll only get the kind of support you're after from established brands such as Velbon, Slik, Benbo, Manfrotto to name just a few.

If the basic tripod is still solid though you can usually unscrew the head from the tripod and replace it from another one (doesn't usually have to be the same make/model) which has suffered leg damage. To remove the head on most models you tighten the locking screw which prevents the head from panning and then turn the head firmly counter-clockwise. The screw thread which holds the head assembly is usually a universal one.

If you have ALDI or LIDL stores in your country they regularly sell surprisingly good tripods with a no-quibble three year international warranty for around £10. They come complete with a carry bag and spare quick release plate. Neither company has any at the moment but they regularly reappear in their weekly specials listings.

I hope that you've found this posting to be of some help even though it's undoubtedly disappointing news. Please return the favour by rating my answer.
