Hold the yellow trigger in slightly to release the ball head, then rotate the section with the ball clock wise until the grip on the ball suits your camera setup.

I have a slim af2100 tripod head. How do you adjust the grip on the top plate as its slipping and won't hold the camera firmly?


The plate should screw to the camera, and the tighting screw would provide the right amount of tensio to hold the camera. Make sure the rubber gripper on the top if the quick release is not missing, if it is, then there is nothing to grip and it will slip.

How do I adjust the grip to hold the camera firmly when I angle it to the side?


There is a release / lock switch. If put to the lock and it does not hold your camera, you should turn the rubbed large column axe to fasten it more (with light cameras you can release it a little) It is the middle section opposed of the trigger knob.

The tripod legs on my manfrotto 3433 slip. the clamping apparatus doesn't have enough grip and just the weight of my video camera is enough to make the legs start sliding down. I see an allen socket...


Hi toolroom347,

There are different clips on the tripod which allow you to adjust the settings for a firmer grip, you also need to extent the gap between the legs of the tripod for a firmer grip, this will help you to set the optimal settings for your tripod which will be fair enough to carry the weight of your camera.

Also a simple solution to stop this slip problem is to carry a small piece of cloth which has guide good grip or a rubber material and then place your camera on it , this will work excellent for a firmer grip.
This has definitely worked for me.

Hope this helps you as well...:)

How does a battery grip works exactly in a camera like nikon D60?


First of all, Nikon doesn't make a battery grip for the D60 so I'm going to assume you mean any of the available third-party grips.

The grip fits into the battery compartment, replacing the battery, and attaches to the bottom of the camera, screwing into the tripod socket. It can hold two battery packs, doubling the battery capacity. Some grips also let you use AA batteries instead of the normal Li-ion battery packs. It also has a tripod socket of its own, so you can still mount your camera on a tripod.

Some people also find it more comfortable when turning the camera to shoot in portrait orientation. The grip gives you another shutter release button and some of the other controls so you still hold the camera with your hands in more-or-less the same position whether you shoot in landscape or portrait.

Of course, there is a cost for all this. The grip adds significantly to the bulk and weight of the camera.

Head will not tighten on AF2100 Pistol grip


one of the treads in the tripodas head is broken try unscrewing the grip the other way to remove it, then examine the grip, if one of the threads on the part of the grip that screws in to the head, is broken then you might be able to get a new grip, and that might work, but there might also be damaged threads inside the tripod head, in which case you neet to replace the head if you can, but if you cant, then I do not think that you can repair that tripod

HOw to reverse Tripod reversible 3/8" - 1/4" screw


Hi there, welcome to FixYa.

That screw is just screwed into the top plate. Just unscrew it. If it's really difficult, you can use a pair of pliers to hold the screw, then turn the pliers. - Make sure you don't damage the threads that screw into the camera. You can help prevent this by using a cloth like a t-shirt. The cloth will help prevent damage incase you have to grip it hard. Just remember to be carefull.

Thanks for coming to FixYa.

Manfrotto Tripod Ball-grip Head 322RC2


If you look on the ring that goes around the ball, on the side by the red tension gauge, you'll see an indentation. It is just barely visible on the product shot above.

In the hole, you'll find what looks like an odd shaped bolt. It is actually a threaded post inside a nut.

Use an Allen wrench (hex key) to tighten this post.

Be careful though, a little tension here goes a long way. You should probably turn it no more than 1/8 to 1/4 turn and then test it. If it still isn't tight enough, repeat until you are satisfied.

You should probably also talk to a trained technician at somepoint to see if the loosening is indicative of a larger problem. I really wouldn't know one way or the other. I just discovered the calibration post by taking mine apart.
