SOURCE: I loaned out my Slik Universal U212 tripod. It was returned without the nut and clamping mechanism for the pan handle. Any idea where I might find replacements. Slik's site doesn't have them. Too

http://kenkooutlet.com sells the parts. Part diagrams are at http://www.thkphoto.com/support/SLIK_Parts_Diagrams/SLIK-U212DX.pdf.

SOURCE: Missing munting post for SLIK U212 Tripod?

Hope you figured it out by now, but I just purchased a used SLIK U212 and was having some difficulty with the quick release. In the picture, it appears that your quick release is upside down in the hole. Release the tab and turn your tripod over to dump out the quick release mount.

I'm looking for an elevator crank handle for a slik master classic tripod 6857u


By elevator crank handle I presume you mean the centre column adjuster. May be available from the manufacturer or importer, otherwise try Ebay or your local friendly camera service centre.

I have a slik pro series 400 dx tripod, however i have lost the vertical tilt handle and wondered if spares are available


Your best bet is probably either Ebay, or the manufacturer. You may get lucky with a tour of your local camera stores, especially those that deal in pre-owned gear.

Missing Tripod parts


Without knowing the brand of tripod i cannot help. There are some brands of tripods that are made for the retailer and the name is licensed, so the name brand does not support or stock repair parts. Especially if the tripod is an inexpensive one. Because of the model and make of you tripod, I would recommend you throw it out and buy another one. In my opinion Slik and Manfrotto are two very good ones. Slik for the lesser expensive and Manfrotto for the more durable, expensive, parts are almost always available unless is it really old tripod. Find some Manfrotto tripods at: www.BogenTripodParts.com

How to Unscrew SLIK tripod head from the rest of tripod?


Below the tripod head you will see what looks like a "sandwich" of two chromed pieces of metal.  The lower one is the top of the tripod's center column.  The upper one is the bottom of the tripod head. Using wrenches or other tools, unscrew the upper one counterclockwise to separate it from the lower one. There is a 1/4" threaded stud which holds them together.
If you plan on replacing the head with a pro head like a Manfrotto, you will need a reducing bushing.  Most heads expect a 3/8" stud, and this tripod's thread is a standard 1/4" stud. The adapters are available through Wolf, Adorama, B&H, and the like.
