I have just come into possession of a T 120223AB Vanguard tripod, but the part which you attach the camera to is missing. What's the name of this part and where can I get hold of one?

    hi emily, I have just got the same tripod on ebay with the same problem. Did you find out where you can purchase the quick release plate from?

    I have bought the same Tripod and have the head/horseshoe/quick release part but my camera does not screw on securely. I think it must be something to do with the thread size.I think mine is quarter inch and it needs to be three eights to be a tight fit.Does anyone know where I can get an adaptor for this?

    Solved my own problem. I do not need an adaptor. I was trying to screw the camera onto the thread instead of screwing the horseshoe thread onto the camera from underneath the horseshoe.

Manual for vanguard mk4 tripod

Do you really need a manual for a tripod ? Easy to use - just move the legs to their widest extent, to ensure stability, mount camera on top, attach remote release to camera, aim camera at subject and shoot.
You can download a manual for almost any equipment by Googling the make and model followed by the word Manual, then follow the appropriate link(s).

We had our camera stolen, it had the part to the Vanguard VT126 connection that connects camera to tripod. Where can we get another one of these parts?

Try for that part. There is listed the widest selection of quick releases and support more brands than any other web site I've seen.

Does anyone know what quick release plate I need for a Vanguard T-120223AB Tripod

Inside the flat that accepts the quick shoe you should see "QS- 03". This is the part number of the shoe you need.

Vanguard vt438 help!!! urgent

Think you'll find its a QS29 adaptor which is used on other models. At least the one on mine is labelled QS29 and the pictures look the same. They seem to be available.
