I have a VT - 87 HQ Solidex brand black camera tripod, Excel series. The crank handle was broken off by an overly curious child. Is there any way to replace it? Thanks. Lisa

I found this tripod, new, on Ebay. It looks like it would serve your purpose. I'll keep checking for you, but take a look at it- it was posted on the 22nd of May, so you have plenty of time to check it out and buy it, if you choose. Good luck, hope this helped!

Solidex is not a tripod for which parts can be gotten. Most of the Solidex tripods do not have removable heads. Try anther brand. You can find a bunch of very good tripods at: itripod.com UI like the Sirui brand

I need the quick release plate that holds the camera on the tripod for the Solidex tripod # VT-92XT model. Where can I find one? I live in the Seattle, WA area. Thanks.


As far as I know Solidex is out of business and since most of there parts are not standard to the other major manufacturers you sould either buy a new tripod or search for the same (exact same) model on ebay or craigs list to find the same model and use it for parts.

Solidex camcorder tripods


OKAY!! Thanks to the reply of "Baldwink", I was able to locate the product he suggested here in the U.S. from several dealers. This is the plate that mounts to the camera and allows easy removal/attachment to the tripod.

For the Solidex VT-90 tripod (the one I have and may fit others), order the Cullman CU-40470 Quick Release Plate. This is also described as the "Cullman Medium Quick Release 42mm" plate.

If you don't have the VT-90, measure the shoe plate area on top and remember that there will be at least one beveled (angled) area. Mine measured exactly 42mm square, so I am confident that the Cullman plate will fit. Also, the standard thread size for camera mounting is 1/4", but there are some cameras that use 3/8", so you might want to double check your camera for this spec.

I googled "cullman 40470 quick release" and found several U.S. dealers. The best price was from Adorama.com at $14 plus $5 ground shipping. Some dealers want as much as $33.

After nearly 20 years, I can use my Solidex VT-90 again!
