Tripod plate leveler thumb screw

The thumb screw which should allow me to adjust the tripod head plate to variable angles on my Velbon VEF-3 tripod no longer grips. That means I can only use the tripod head in the horizontal position. Any suggestions on how to remedy this problem will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have a slim af2100 tripod head. How do you adjust the grip on the top plate as its slipping and won't hold the camera firmly?


The plate should screw to the camera, and the tighting screw would provide the right amount of tensio to hold the camera. Make sure the rubber gripper on the top if the quick release is not missing, if it is, then there is nothing to grip and it will slip.

How adjust the vertical viewing


are you just mounting a camera to the tripod itself? - you need to purchase a head as well - the head screws onto the top of the tripod, and then the camera fixes to the head, usually with a qr plate.

How much weight will the Velbon Victory 250 Tripod hold?


The tripod will certainly hold this weight. However the limiting factor is the head. Without knowing the head you have mounted on the tripod I'm afraid I can't tell you whether it would hold your camera and lens.

What do I need to attach a Castel-XL focusing rack to my DV 7000 tripod? The attachment piece with the tripod does not attach in a sturdy fashion.


The XL attahes with a 1/4 or 3/8" camera screw or via an Arca compatible QR. If it is not tight on your tripod the problem is probably in the tripod head.

I cannot figure out how to get the plate off the head. I end up either putting camera on, then twisting the whole thing onto the tripod, or putting the head on the tripod and twisting the camera around to...


Sounds as if you haven't unlocked the quick disconnect plate from the 222 head.

Release the quick disconnect plate from the 222 pistol grip with the thumb release it will click open and pop the release plate up a bit to remove it. The affix this plate to the camera tripod socket 1/4 x20 female thread on the camera bottom. The underside of the quick release plate has a "D" ring to screw it to the camera, fold over the "D" ring and when you pit it back on the 222 set the edge under the lip and set it down the brass pin then will snap the thumb release over and lock into place.

See my diagrams

How to remove pan head from velbon 530, it feels very tight


I have the Hakuba HG-503MX which came with basically the same pan head you have already attached to the center column. First remove the center column from the tripod, with the pan head attached. Tighten the knob that prevents the pan head unit from rotating 360 degrees on the center column and gripping the head with one a hand and the center column near the plastic plate firmly twisting the head counter clockwise. The pan head will unscrew from the plastic plate which sits on top of the center column, given enough force. My pan head was also very tightly screwed onto the shaft, since it came already attached to the tripod. Hope this is helpful.
