Question about Tripods & Monopods
I would like to replace the head and post of this tripod with an oversize plate. Something to give more stability for a fairly heavy camera.
SOURCE: Benbo 1 ball head sticky
"NeverSeeze" available at most hardware and auto parts stores. A little (very Little) goes a long way. Smear a small amount on the ball and start to work it around in its socket. will come out as new with a little effort.

I have the national geographic branded version. Here is how you remove the head.
(1) remove the center post from the tripod
(2) lock the ball head with the trigger lock
(3) grasp the body of the ball head with one hand and the center column with the other.
(4) turn counter clockwise.
If you're intending to replace the ballhead, be warned that the thread is non-standard. I have a new "plug" with a standard 1/4" thread made for free by the machinist at my job. I don't know how you would go about adapting it without such a capability.
