Without knowing the make and model of the tripod and the type of the camera, I can only be general/

The camera may be too heavy for the tripod head. Heads are rated to hold so much weight. If the camera/lens combo is too heavy for the head. it will tip forward. Many department store grade tripods can handle only light cameras.

The locking mechanism may be damaged/broken.

If you need more info, please repost the question, specifying the make and model of the tripod and the type of the camera. If it takes interchangeable lenses, also include the make and model of the lens.

Ball slipping


Check out this page and see if there are any parts here that might be what you're looking for:
http://www.bogentripodparts.com/parts/head322RC2.htm
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

The screws on my tripod will not tightened


Take out the whole Camera Plate. there is a plastic cap on the top of the tripoid, right by the end of your tripod extender, that comes out with a little pulling it. Now, have a look at the end of the knob housing from which your screw accidentaly came out. You will see a perfect spot in wich you need to re- insert the nut that came out. Once you do it, all you need to do is to re- insert the knob back into place, and it will "bite" the nut again at the end of the housing. Re- install the whole plate back on top of your tripod. Finally, put the plastic cap back at the top. You might need to gently tap it in. Done deal . Problem resolved ! Enjoy your tripod !

How do you properly attach the camera to the optex t465 tripod...there was no manual to go in...i want to make sure it's secure so i can have the camera vertical ...second question...i seem to have it...


Hi Julie.... These tripods are often a wee bit difficult to tighten down. I use a pair of common pliers to snug down the thumb screws to be sure the tripod stays put. Joe

thanks for choosing Fixya!

If you twist the panning arm on most tripods this usually locks the position.
