Good news! You can fix this very easily! The threads for tripod to camera mounting have been standardized for decades!

What you require is a 1/4-20 bolt of any type. You can go to any hardware store and find a huge selection.....many will even have a knurled knob on the end for hand-tightening. Places like Home Depot have large bins with just about every type bolt imaginable.

THE most IMPORTANT thing is choosing the correct length. Too long, and overtightening can damage your camera. Along with your bolt purchase, get a matching 1/4-20 nut to act as a backstop so you do not screw it in too far. You only need to have the bolt screw into your camera about 1/4" to secure it. You can also add a 1/4 inch flat washer to keep the nut off your camera's finish. Your bolt needs to be long enough to go through your tripod mount and then into your camera.

FYI- The "1/4-20" designation means that the bolt is 1/4 inch in diameter, with a thread "pitch" of 20 threads per inch.

Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

I'm looking for the Velbon Videomate 601 instruction manual for my tripod.

Is a manual or instruction leaflet really necessary ? Tripods are actually amazingly simple to use. You spread the three legs (three legs - 'tri'-pod) and place them firmly on level ground. Then you attach the camera, camcorder, spotting scope or whatever to the top, and use the equipment as desired.

Ahoo.comI've got a Star Tracker Telescope from Toys R Us. Although I have the instruction manula I cannot get the telescope to attach to the tri-pod, wondering if I am missing a peice....or is it one...

It probably just screws onto the tripod-- this is a very simple telescope. Read myu tips on my profile page-- take it back to Toys R Us if it will not attach-- and never buy that brand again. We receive the most complaints with that telescope.

I bought a used Galileo FS-120DX reflector telescope on a garage sale. It is missing the eye-piece, instruction book, screw to attach the scope tube to the tri-pod and possibly some weights that attach to...

You may be able to call Galileo telescopes and order the parts.

If not and if the eyepiece is a 1.25 inch (measure the hole in the focuser), then you can buy eyepieces and weights from several different retailers on-line:

The screw you can find at a well stocked hardware store.
