Question about Manfrotto 3005D Tripod
I was unable to find a picture of this tripod and head arrangement so on experience only I'll suggest how to do this. All of my Manfrotto tripods whether round tube or octagonal center post design work the same way. At the the bottom of the center post is a cap, it might be a rubber plug, twist lock type with a hook, or a rectangular stopper. Which ever this plug/cap can come out will a little effort. It's there to prevent the user from inadvertently pulling the center post out while extending to maximum height. You need to loosed the tension scree/lock off loose but not necessary to remove the screw. Then remove the center post by pulling it right out of the tripod housing. Now invert the post and reinstall it from the bottom side up, the tricky part is to realign the friction/tension lock and sometimes I use a pen/pencil to hold it over to the side while I insert the center post. once in place tighten the friction lock. The draw back I had at first was using the camera upside down. I've since solved that problem with a C type bracket. Hope this helps
