I have lost the lever that tightens the camera mount plate in place on the Verbon CX 570 tripod's head. Where can I buy a replacement for this part?
I tried the Verbon site but they referred me to an outfit whose phone has been disconnected and whose site doesn't list Verbon as a supported product manufacturer so I suspect the whole Verbon thing is out of date. I figured someone out there must know who is doing support for Verbon tripods so here I am.
I was looking for a part for my Verbon tripod and I came across this posting. I hope you have found the part by now. But if not perhaps you could try this spot. I found what I was looking for in just 2 days.

the quick release plate, that you are calling the "mount piece" will just snap onto the head of the tripod - if you aren't sure, a good way is to take off the QR plate from the camera, and then, with the screw threads face up, see how it fits into the head - many times, you have to engage the spring lever, so when you set the plate inside the head, it will snap locked into place. Then, re-mount it on your camera, and do the same thing, and there ya go.
it is a quick release plate. there is usually a button or lever to release the plate. you then screw the plate into the bottom of your camera or camcorder and mount the plate back onto the tripod. you can leave the plate on your camera when you store it to allow for faster setup.
Unfortunately not. It's a budget, no-name model with absolutely no back up support so you have no chance of buying a replacement quick release plate. The plates themselves are not standardised and are not only unique to each manufacturer but often not even standard within a single manufacturer's product range.
You'll only get the kind of support you're after from established brands such as Velbon, Slik, Benbo, Manfrotto to name just a few.
If the basic tripod is still solid though you can usually unscrew the head from the tripod and replace it from another one (doesn't usually have to be the same make/model) which has suffered leg damage. To remove the head on most models you tighten the locking screw which prevents the head from panning and then turn the head firmly counter-clockwise. The screw thread which holds the head assembly is usually a universal one.
If you have ALDI or LIDL stores in your country they regularly sell surprisingly good tripods with a no-quibble three year international warranty for around £10. They come complete with a carry bag and spare quick release plate. Neither company has any at the moment but they regularly reappear in their weekly specials listings.
I hope that you've found this posting to be of some help even though it's undoubtedly disappointing news. Please return the favour by rating my answer.
To get the camera to secure properly to the release plate make sure that the bolt is screwed entirely into the camera bottom and then there should be a larger knob that rotates around the bolt that tightens down to the camera body. What I do to get a really tight fit is point the arrow on the bottom of the release plate labeled lens (that arrow when properly mounted should be pointed towards the front of the lens) to a 45 degree angle to the left of the lens, then I snug down the knob, and then I grab the release plate and turn it until the lens arrow is aligned with the front of the lens. As far as quick releaseing the camera from the legs when secured on the release plate you should be able to pull the lever away from the head and it should simply release the camera with the plate attached.
