Re: Travel tripod

I have the same tripod with the QHD-53D head and I have swapped the plate for a cheap arca swiss compatible clamp, the bolt was glued in, but a bit of brute force sorted that out! You can then bolt up through the ball into a new clamp, the bolt I had available could do with being 5mm longer to engage all the thread in the base of the clamp, but it works fine for now.
