On the bottom of your camera there will be a threaded metal socket. It should look silver in color and appear like the inside of a hardware nut -- threads that a bolt can screw into.

On the top of the tripod is a threaded bolt that fits into the socket on the bottom of the camera. Place the bolt gently into the socket, align it with the camera and gently turn it to the right (righty-tighty) to engage. Be careful not to strip the threads by tightening without aligning the bolt and the camera.

You should tighten it to where it is snug but don't force it.

SOURCE: Missing Tripod piece (Quick release)

What you can do is find a local welder or metal shop in your area. Take the tripod with you, and ask them to fabricate a aluminum or steel replacement "shoe" for your tripod. Also have them drill a hole in the center so you can later insert the proper threaded screw that will mount to your camera. You may want to take your camera and get the proper threaded bolt first before you get the shoe made, so they can make the hole the correct size. You can go to any hardware or home improvement store and ask for assistance to find the right thread for you camera equipment. The bolt should not be any longer than1 inch, so it will mount tight on your plate.

** Note you want a flush mount type bolt that when tightened on the plate is smooth on the bottom** This is so when you mount the shoe in the head, it will be properly seated.

I lost the plate to my TG-5060TR tripod I called the company and they were not very helpful Can anyone help me get a replacement plate for cheap


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.

you can hang your camera bag from it so the light weight tripod has more mass attached to it so it is more stable.

I have a TARGUS TG-5060TR tripod. The plate that connects to the camera broke when it fell over. Any chance I can purchase a replacement plate.


My mounting plate broke as well when it fell over. There is a vendor on Amazon who sells them, but they are 7.99, and shipping is 7.00, not Prime eligible, so just the plate comes out to 14.99, which is about the price for a new TG-5060. I'm going to ditch the mount and drill a hole through the tripod quick release, then use a piece of bolt with the head cut off and a wing nut to attach it. It's either that or through the tripod away, and I hate to waste things that can be fixed.

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. Targus parts exactly will be hard to get so you may have to measure the opening of the quick release hole and work from there.
