SOURCE: I am also missing the quick release for my Vivitar

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.

Vivitar 980 leg lock replacement


Who are these people designing the leg locks. These are the poorest examples of engineering. Even a child could see that the leg lock begs to be broken. Maybe Vivitar should stick to flashes

I need a replacement for the part that holds the camera on the tripod. Its the square piece with a screw. the tripod number is V-2400GX


It's called a Quick Release Plate and they come in different sizes and shapes. V-2400GX is an older model made by Vivitar right? A Vivitar QB-4w Quick Release is the closest replacement available I do believe. QR-3 and QR-2 are rare as far as I know, you might find one in a resale shop someplace. I hope this helps!
