Call us at 800 735-4373 if you are in the USA. From your description of the problem the answer is no. We would have to know which tripod and exactly what broke.

Why can't I find a replacement part?


Available replacement parts for Sunpack tripods are pretty much limited to new heads, mounting plates, or carry cases; take a look at what B&H Photo has to offer. You don't say what specific tripod you have, but I'd suggest a search at eBay where several are available at auction right now. Furthermore, a check of completed auction/sales shows both new and lightly used ones sold in the past month for between $10 to $50. Buy one for parts or use it as is. You won't find any part plus shipping for less than that.

Sunpack makes consumer not pro level tripods even though the term Pro may appear in some product names. When you buy a tripod that costs $400 and up without the head, you get more options for replacement parts. I have a Sunpack myself for lightest duty when hiking, but my main tripod is a Manfrotto with the grip head. The huge difference in cost makes a corresponding difference in what parts I can find online. When my Sunpack broke (in a different way than yours but equally unusable) I used gaffer's tape to hold it together until I could find a new one (on eBay for $15).

Good luck!

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.

Pretty standard cookies. Goto your local camera shop with your trippod they will have generic ones that should fit!

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.
