How do I keep the button down when screwing the camera on


I suspect that this is the tiny locating button that sits beside the screw on the tripod.

Check your manual to find out how to remove the quick release sled. There is usually a small lever that needs to be rotated out of position and the sled lifts out.

Once you have the sled out, turn it over and you should see a small flap of metal that can be folded up and this is the means by which you screw the threaded part into your camera. Once it is tight, flip down the metal flap and then refit the sled to the tripod , taking care to rotate the lever again.

Some tripod levers remain locked while the sled is removed and they slip back into place when it is replaced in the tripod head.

Hope this helps.

My tripod is actually cx640 did not see it on the list, missing thing camera screws into.


Try this site: http://www.tripodquickrelease.com/Velbon_Quick_Releases.htm#Old%20Velbon%20Reference

Based on your Tripod CX-640 the quick release you need is Velbon QB-5LC. The website gives you pictures to verify.

I am looking for advice on how to mount a Ball Head on the plate of a regular tripod, So far I have not found a Ball Head that has the same size thread in the bottom. Is an adapter available as a solution....


The bottom threads on most tripod heafs are 3/8", but some are 1/4"/ The mounting screws on MOST tripods are 3/8", but I have seen `/4" (especially on monopods. IF:
tripod=3/8 head = 1/4 need mounting plate 3/8 female to 1/4 male
tripod = 1/4 head - 1/4 nothing
tripod 3/8 head 3/8 nothing'
tripod 1/4 head = 3/8 there is an adapter/reducer that screws into the 3/8
' female and reduces that to 1/4"
'

I cannot figure out how to get the plate off the head. I end up either putting camera on, then twisting the whole thing onto the tripod, or putting the head on the tripod and twisting the camera around to...


Sounds as if you haven't unlocked the quick disconnect plate from the 222 head.

Release the quick disconnect plate from the 222 pistol grip with the thumb release it will click open and pop the release plate up a bit to remove it. The affix this plate to the camera tripod socket 1/4 x20 female thread on the camera bottom. The underside of the quick release plate has a "D" ring to screw it to the camera, fold over the "D" ring and when you pit it back on the 222 set the edge under the lip and set it down the brass pin then will snap the thumb release over and lock into place.

See my diagrams

And the release plate

How do i place the camera on the tripoid as it does not have a screw connection on top


The tripod comes with a quick shoe, which has a screw connection. The camera, with quick shoe attached, is then inserted into the slot in the pan head.

Hi. The telescope itself became disattached from the tripod. How do I connect it again? There seems to be a screw, but it is not screwing in tight. THanks. Maria.


The female end may be stripped. You will need to re-tap the threads, and probably also buy a replacement bolt at any well stocked hardware store.

How to put a camera on it


If it's a quick release tripod you need to remove the quick release plate (Usually a release lever to the side of the top of the tripod) and then fasten the plate securely to the camera and then the plate to the tripod. Older non-quick-release tripods have a knurled screw located below the flat area where the camera is attached. If the screw is missing, get a relacement from your local hardware store - 1/4" -20. (Find a way to keep the new one from getting lost.)

Leg lock broken


Assuming you still have the female part with the treads in tact, you can do what I did. I used a hose clamp, the kind used on radiators, but larger. First, take off the lock down knob, then put the hose clamp over the broken plastic housing and mark where the knob would screw through. Then remove the hose clamp, placing it on a sturdy surface and use a 5/16 drill bit to make a hole where the lock down know will pass through. Place the hose clamp over the plastic housing, insert the knob, tighten the hose clamp (but not so much that it restricts the tripod leg from moving) and you are done! I can send you pictures of the process and the final result. It saved me from buying a new tripod! I can be e-mailed at [email protected] if you have questions.
