Question about Bogen Communication Bogen Manfrotto 3030G Pan/Tilt Head with Quick Release Plate (green) Tripod
How do you manage the quick release plate?
There is a very small brass arm which is either one of two positions. Where is the arm supposed to be to really "lock" the quick release plate in tightly?
Is there any way to download a user's manual for this head - I just got a used one, no product info with it however.
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.

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.
