I was given one that is missing the camera mounting screw.

I'm not sure, but I suspect a previous owner attempted to fix the lost camera
mount screw by threading (Tapping out) the “hole” in the mounting
plate that the screw passes through on its way to the camera.

It seems the screw should be free spinning and held from the top
of the mounting plate by a counter sunk or flush washer like clip,
but I’m not sure as I can’t find a detailed photo of the same model plate.

I was hoping that if someone owns the same model they could confirm or
deny if mine was in fact altered, and if possible post a photo of their mounting
plate from above.

Thanks Guys

Sorry false alarm.

It wasn't threaded after all.

Somone rounded a nut off (And we all know how bad that can be!),
dropped it into the screw hole, then resurfaced the plate with the cork
like covering thus concealing it.

I see that I just need a thumb screw that accomadates the thickness of the mounting
plate plus a 1/4 inch, and a C shaped washer clip to hold it in.

I love this tripod :)
