    I am missing the quick release part of an Ambico tripod (which is at least 10 - 11 years old, & not sure what model it is). I checked e-bay for release parts, but had no luck yet. Anyone know if the release part from a new tripod would fit an older one, or another place I could check?

    I also need a quick release and the company doesn't really care that we need the parts. I have 2 of them. One I fell over and bent and the other needs a quick release. Maybe I should offer them for parts

The http://www.tripodquickrelease.com site recommends the QS-14 plate. I have found a better plate for these than the QS-14, which fits but is a bit sloppy.
I took my Ambico to the local camera store and test fitted several candidates. The plate for the Promaster 7100/7150/7400/7450 is a perfect, snug fit. This plate is listed as the 3783 on the tripodquickrelease site. However, the Promasters are current products, so you can probably get a plate for any of those models from almost any camera supply (B&H, Adorama, etc) for much less than the premium prices on tripodquickrelease. I even found them at my local store for much less.

This site posted by Lissa713 was a great site for finding my tripods quick release plate:

http://www.tripodquickrelease.com

I found my quick release for my Vanguard AK-4 on this site quickly and easily. The price was reasonable as well.

I recommend this site to any one who needs to find their quick release as well.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a quick source for parts for Ambico tripods (: I have one. Fortunately, they are not very expensive- eBay had several for less than $10 starting bid.
I got parts for my Velbon tripod from: http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZspartanphotocenter
You may wish to contact them, perhaps they have a source for you.

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.

I lost the camera attachment for my Ambico trypod. Where can I purchase a replacement?


Try www.TripodQuickRelease.com for that part. There is listed the widest selection of quick releases and support more brands than any other web site I've seen. Because your tripod is not supported by the manufacturer; parts lists and pars are not available, you should measure the opening and see what other brand quick releases will work paying attention to the shape and locking mechanism. Otherwise just get another tripod.
