I am probably missing something very basic here. Based on the
earlier posts about replacing the head mounting screw, I went to
Lowe's Hardware and bought both a 1/4 x 1" and 3/8 x 1" bolt. Both
of them will not fit into the bottom of my Giottos MH-7001 head.
The 1/4" diameter bolt will fit but will not screw in.

I have the Giottos 9170 and the MH-7001 head. Since the 1/4" and
3/8" diameter bolts did not work for me, does anyone have any other
suggestions for the proper size bolt? Thanks for all help and any

Sounds like you got the right size but the wrong thread pattern.
