Can someone help out. I have a 058 model tripod, a good old work horse, I want to take the head off and replace it with a #268. the problem is, how do you remove the head? I have removed the 3 small screws from under the base, but nothing gives. What am I missing?? Thanks. Geoff.

I am looking for quick release plate for a Radio Shack RST-84V tripod made in the 90s. I looked all over (local radio shack stores and corp. head quarters) but no one has any info.

I am using the vivitar vpt 2400 tripod with my "guerilla" paint box [9"x12"x6" deep & @ 10#] the box has a metal universal plate receiver for the bolt on the plastic quick release head [QRPER] I work on a painting on the back of the opened box which is attached to the tripod The stress /racking sheered two of the four plastic "teeth" off of the QRPER head I need a metal version on the head, I think...is there one? What do you recommend?


Hi,\015\012\015\012Looking at the type of work you do , I would recomend for a metal version as the plastic would keep sheering the teeth. Yes the weight would increase by triffle and may be anoying while travelling but its worth it. ... Digital Cameras

I inherited a Manfrotto tripod with a a Manfrotto 3130 head attached. I purchased a very large lens and need to change the head, but I can't get the first one off. This is partially because I don't know how it is attached to the tripod. I would have guessed it simply screws on, but nothing moves when I try to unscrew it. Help please. Thanks, John

Canon Sx120 IS camera will not zoom closeup from a tripod at 19" set at macro!!! Instructions say the camera cannot focus in the range of the yellow bar, well how do you get away from the yellow bar?
