I am also missing the quick release for my Vivitar 980 tripod. I ordered the ''replacement'' straight from Vivitar, but they didn't fit. They were too small and didn't slip under the lip. When I look at the seat, it looks like the quick release should have one end that slopes into the seat. Can you tell me where I can get one or two quick releases for my wonderful tripod?

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.

Can you tell me where I can obtain a quick release shoe for a Vivitar V3000 Tripod With thanks


Hi there.

You can order the quick release separate. According to this link, http://www.tripodquickrelease.com/Vivitar_Quick_Releases.htm#QS-14 you need the QS-14 [$12.99] quick release.
Hope this helps,
Andrew

I bought a used camera tripod that does not fit my camera


Your tripod is a K-Mart brand item and it will fit any camera but it's clearly missing the quick-release foot which most tripods have these days. This part screws to the bottom of the camera and enables the camera to be quickly attached and removed from the tripod.

Unfortunately there is no standard foot shared between manufacturers and most tripod manufacturers don't even have a standard design foot which fits all models in their range.

You can still order a replacement foot from:-

http://tripodquickrelease.com/Focal_Quick_Releases.htm

But at US$18.99 it may be cheaper to buy a new tripod!

I hope that you appreciate the time which I've taken to research and answer your question and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.
