How can I replace the quick release head for the libec th659dv tripod. A student has lost the plate but UK retailers do not seem to stock libec replacements.


Try a plate from another tripod. I have three different tripods, and the quick-release plates are all interchangeable.

How to put a camera on it


If it's a quick release tripod you need to remove the quick release plate (Usually a release lever to the side of the top of the tripod) and then fasten the plate securely to the camera and then the plate to the tripod. Older non-quick-release tripods have a knurled screw located below the flat area where the camera is attached. If the screw is missing, get a relacement from your local hardware store - 1/4" -20. (Find a way to keep the new one from getting lost.)

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.
