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.

What do I do to attach the camera after attaching it to the mount piece?


the quick release plate, that you are calling the "mount piece" will just snap onto the head of the tripod - if you aren't sure, a good way is to take off the QR plate from the camera, and then, with the screw threads face up, see how it fits into the head - many times, you have to engage the spring lever, so when you set the plate inside the head, it will snap locked into place. Then, re-mount it on your camera, and do the same thing, and there ya go.

DONT KNOW HOW CAMERA GOES ON TRIPOD WILL ANY CAMERA WORK ON IT OR DOES JUST CERTAIN ONES WORK ON IT IT IS A DYNEX 60 " DIGITAL TRIPOD


It is usually obvious where the camera goes, so I am pretty sure that what you have is a tripod with a quick release plate that doesn't have the quick release plate fitted. This is very common when you buy a tripod second-hand. The quick release plates get attached to a camera and people forget to reunite them with the tripod before disposing of it.

If you bought the tripod new, then look in the packaging for a plate with a screw to attach to the normal camera tripod screw in socket. There ought to be more than one. The screw is standard throughout the world, except maybe Germany that used to use a different size. Any camera you have will have this socket on the bottom, a threaded hole about a quarter inch (5 or 6mm) in diameter. The plate will be a design peculiar to this make of tripod, and if you lose it or don't have it you will be unlikely to get another.

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.

Quick release plates on all tripods are in two pieces. One stays on the tripod and provides a locking mechanism to secure the camera and the other stays connected to the tripod socket on the camera.

I have a SLIK Single Action Panhead Tripod. How do I mount the camera on the tripod?


it is a quick release plate. there is usually a button or lever to release the plate. you then screw the plate into the bottom of your camera or camcorder and mount the plate back onto the tripod. you can leave the plate on your camera when you store it to allow for faster setup.

Securing camera to tripod


It sounds like the bolt is not theading into the camcorder nut far enough. don't go more than a 1/2 inch up into the nut however. You might need a longer shoe bolt.

Screwing camera onto tripod quick release


Usually the camcorder has a hole next to the mounting screwhole. The plastic nub fit into the unthreaded hole, the mounting screw screws into the threaded hole. The nub is to help prevent the camcorder from rotating while you are using it on the tripod.

Bogen Manfrotto 3047 head


Dear spiderinkart,
To get the camera to secure properly to the release plate make sure that the bolt is screwed entirely into the camera bottom and then there should be a larger knob that rotates around the bolt that tightens down to the camera body. What I do to get a really tight fit is point the arrow on the bottom of the release plate labeled lens (that arrow when properly mounted should be pointed towards the front of the lens) to a 45 degree angle to the left of the lens, then I snug down the knob, and then I grab the release plate and turn it until the lens arrow is aligned with the front of the lens. As far as quick releaseing the camera from the legs when secured on the release plate you should be able to pull the lever away from the head and it should simply release the camera with the plate attached.

Sincerely,
Agent Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
