Attach Quick Release Plate

Hello,

I bought a Manfrotto 3047 Head on eBay and the seller does not have the instruction manual. I managed to remove the quick release plate, attach it to my camera and now I am trying to reattach the plate back on the head, but it is wobbling. How does the 2-piece attachment mechanism work?

Thank you.

    I'm not sure I understand your question. The quick release plate (Hex plate) should be firmly captured by the head when properly brought into the clamping mechanism. There is a small "button" that the plate depresses which releases the clamp. For reference, this linkhttp://www.bhphotovideo.com/images/large... shows an image of the head with the plate in the correct position.

    I use Manfrotto ball heads, but with the same QR plate and mechanism so I'm pretty familiar with the setup. If I misunderstood your question, please let me know. If what I've said above solves your problem I'd like to know that too.

How do you remove the quick release plate from a manfrotto quick release plate magic arm?


There should be a red button you can push and then open the lever/slide it out. You can call Spartan Photo Center (www.spartanphotocenter.com) and they can guide you through.

How do you get the head off the tripod?


There are three small set screw (grub screws) that are under the head, net to the center column. You will have to raise the center column and look under the head. These are slotted screw heads and a small to medium screwdriver should work. You don ot have to remove the grub screws completely, but you should back them out at least half way. The head will unscrew off the center column. The gray part below the head is half the head attachment and half the center column end plate so it should separate in the middle line between the two.

Bogen Manfrotto 3047 head


Dear spiderinkart,
To get the camera to secure properly to the release plate make sure that the bolt is screwed entirely into the camera bottom and then there should be a larger knob that rotates around the bolt that tightens down to the camera body. What I do to get a really tight fit is point the arrow on the bottom of the release plate labeled lens (that arrow when properly mounted should be pointed towards the front of the lens) to a 45 degree angle to the left of the lens, then I snug down the knob, and then I grab the release plate and turn it until the lens arrow is aligned with the front of the lens. As far as quick releaseing the camera from the legs when secured on the release plate you should be able to pull the lever away from the head and it should simply release the camera with the plate attached.

Sincerely,
Agent Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

3030G pan tilt head


The little brass arm is supposed to be a safety switch. In one position the release lever bumps into the brass are and will not turn so the quick release willnot come off. In the other position the brass arm is away from the lever so it swings freely and the quick release plate will come off. With the brass arm open the quick release lever shoulde lock open until you push the quick releae in place. If none of this seem to work on your head, you may be missing parts.
