Why can't I find a replacement part?


Available replacement parts for Sunpack tripods are pretty much limited to new heads, mounting plates, or carry cases; take a look at what B&H Photo has to offer. You don't say what specific tripod you have, but I'd suggest a search at eBay where several are available at auction right now. Furthermore, a check of completed auction/sales shows both new and lightly used ones sold in the past month for between $10 to $50. Buy one for parts or use it as is. You won't find any part plus shipping for less than that.

Sunpack makes consumer not pro level tripods even though the term Pro may appear in some product names. When you buy a tripod that costs $400 and up without the head, you get more options for replacement parts. I have a Sunpack myself for lightest duty when hiking, but my main tripod is a Manfrotto with the grip head. The huge difference in cost makes a corresponding difference in what parts I can find online. When my Sunpack broke (in a different way than yours but equally unusable) I used gaffer's tape to hold it together until I could find a new one (on eBay for $15).

Good luck!

How do I connect a Manfrotto - 026 Swivel Umbrella Adapter (Lite-Tite) to a tripod?


Deborah
If you bought the Manfrotto #026 Lite-Tite new, it should have come with (2) brass adapters..., ((1) with male 1/4-20 & 3/8-16" threads & (1) with female 1/4-20" & 3/8-16" threads). All universal photo tripods made in the last 30 years use these (2) thread sizes. All you should need to mount this unit to a tripod is the 'female' adapter spud. If you are missing this item..., it is a Manfrotto #119 adapter (available through most photo dealers).

What do I need to attach a Castel-XL focusing rack to my DV 7000 tripod? The attachment piece with the tripod does not attach in a sturdy fashion.


The XL attahes with a 1/4 or 3/8" camera screw or via an Arca compatible QR. If it is not tight on your tripod the problem is probably in the tripod head.

I have a Solidex video tripod that is missing the shoe that the camera itself attached to- in order to set on the tripod. I know the company is out of business, but is there another one that is compatible...


Most of them are compatable as the fittings are universal.
So try to check up at Studios if there are any tripods with the telescopic damage from which the shoe pad can be salvaged.
The other way is to get this fabricated easily from a good tooling shop with a sample that can be taken from a friend for confirming the dimensions.

I need to get a new quick release mount for my VPT-360 tripod. Where can I get a hold of one?


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.

Ineed a tilt head for vivitar 914 tripod


Because of the age of the tripod, and the fact that Vivitar no longer sells or supports tripods, I think you would be better served if you bought a new tripod. Slik and Manfrotto are two that will offer you a great price, durability and in the case of the Manfrotto, parts available from a wide range of sources including the USA distributor: www.bogenimaging.us you can see tripod and parts at www.BogenTripodParts.com Otherwise you could try ebay or craigs list to find the same model and use it for parts.
