    I'm glad to  hear it can be fixed but I already took it to a camera shop here locally and their repairment don't fix tripods.  I live in the Fort Myers, FL, area.  Any suggestions as to where I can go?

    Thank you.  My husband is working on the tripod now.  He was able to get the quick release post off but isn't sure what to do now.  Can I get back to you in awhile if he needs more help?

    Thank you. My husband wasn't able to fix it so we will try the places you recommended to find a shop than can. At least now we know it can be fixed.

Yes, take it to a camera repair shop and they should be able to fix it for you if you don't feel comfortable doing it, probably a spring or a broken piece inside the latch.

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.

Securing camera to tripod


It sounds like the bolt is not theading into the camcorder nut far enough. don't go more than a 1/2 inch up into the nut however. You might need a longer shoe bolt.

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).
