Re: That is a good idea

I can see where that would make it 10x more sturdy (and safe). I'm going to head out to Lowes and pick up a bolt as well. The only downside I could see is not being able to use the built in 3-way head with just the camera attached and without the additional head screwed on to the top of it (which for me adds about 4 inches of height)... but how many times would you really want to do that anyways? I can't see too many scenarios where you would need to do that.

I couldn't see where that tripod could get anymore rugged and sturdy than it already is... but that little extra piece of mind couldn't hurt.
