If the head is loose on the tripod follow these instructions:
There are three small set screw (grub screws) that are under the head, net to the center column. You will have to raise the center column and look under the head. These are slotted screw heads and a small to medium screwdriver should work. You don ot have to remove the grub screws completely, but you should back them out at least half way. The head will unscrew off the center column. The gray part below the head is half the head attachment and half the center column end plate so it should separate in the middle line between the two.

If screws came out elsewhere, we will need to know the model number of the head that came apart.

Cannot find way to attach new Pistol Grip head


Often the less expensive tripods do not have heads that are removeble and replaceable. On the Sunpak 6600DX you have teken the head apart, but there is no provision for putting on a new one because it was never made to take one.

Remove 3130 head from 3021 tripod


The head is mounted on the base by a 3/8" screw. The head is held in place by 3 set screws in the base. Turn tripod upside down, loosen (or if completely removed, do not lose them) those 3 screws, turn tripod rightside up and unscrew head from tripod. If unable to turn head, loosen screws a little more. If scres are removed and heaf still not comeing off, Use pipe wrench or afjustable pliers wrapped in cloth to preven maring and loosen. (looking from top, or birds eye view, turn head counter-clockwise

Can't get it off the tripod, any ideas? J


These things can get on tight specially if it was factory installed. What you should be looking for is three or sometimes four set screws on the underside of the center column flange. You need to extend or remove the center column and look on the underside. You need a slot type screw driver that fits down inside the slotted thread and loose then right off I just take them out cause even a little bit of the set screw can bind it up tight while attempting to remove the head. Once these set screws have been removed lock the tripod head from moving in any direction and then remove the head by turning it, same way you would remove a bottle cap. Yes it's going to be tight but it will come off. There is a center stud in the column that you are unscrewing the tripod head from. Sometimes depending how hard it's been used or the environment the tripod was used it the head might need a little penetrating oil to help it along (a little) goes a long way. This should get that head off for you

Make sure you are loosening the 3 grub screws under the tripod head to release it from the tripod center column. there are the 3 slotted screw heads under the grey part of the tripod head. Make sure you back them all the way out before you start to loosen the head.

Head will not tighten on AF2100 Pistol grip


one of the treads in the tripodas head is broken try unscrewing the grip the other way to remove it, then examine the grip, if one of the threads on the part of the grip that screws in to the head, is broken then you might be able to get a new grip, and that might work, but there might also be damaged threads inside the tripod head, in which case you neet to replace the head if you can, but if you cant, then I do not think that you can repair that tripod

I need a replacement tripod socket for minolta stsi


Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Depending of your use of the tripod, (meaning, if your a professional photographer, or just a hobbiest = how much money your willing to invest to fix it!) there are a couple things you can do.

Purchase a clamp on head for your tripod. There are many on the web to choose from.
Or: (if you want to truly McGuyver it)
Take off the the screw so the tripod head is flat then use double stick velcro tape. Put one half on the bottom of your camera and the other on the flat part of the tripod. That will do the job for the hobbiest with for very littel money.

Hope this helps.

Breakdown Manfrotto 3265 ball head from 190xb tripod


IT SOME TIMES TAKES A LOT OF EFFORT TO SEPARTE THE HEAD FROM THE TRIPOD. MAKE SURE YOU REMOVE THE 3 LITTLE SCREWS FROM BELOW THE HEAD, AND MAKE SURE THE TRIPOD AND HEAD ARE NOT COLD. IF THEYA RE WARM THEY WILL SEPARATE EASIER.
