On the bottom of your camera there will be a threaded metal socket. It should look silver in color and appear like the inside of a hardware nut -- threads that a bolt can screw into.
On the top of the tripod is a threaded bolt that fits into the socket on the bottom of the camera. Place the bolt gently into the socket, align it with the camera and gently turn it to the right (righty-tighty) to engage. Be careful not to strip the threads by tightening without aligning the bolt and the camera.
You should tighten it to where it is snug but don't force it.

Where can I get parts?
I got from friend a Velbon Victory 550 tripod. The handle that prevent the head from tilting is missing, and so is a piece of plastic that apparently held the rod upon which the head of the tripod is placed from shaking.
