Tripod and Head Questions
1) I am having trouble releasing the 3/8" adapter from the ball head. Should I consider using the "Red Loctite and bolt" method to remove the adapter? I asked particularly that all my tripods and monopods have 1/4" base plate, so I don't really need to remove the adapter. Please help.
2) I am having trouble tightening another head onto a monopod via a 3/8 adapter. When I tried to use a regular 3/8" bolt to insert into the head, I found that the bolt stopped turning after a couple of turns, and could only be turned if I used a ratcheting wrench. Does it mean the internal thread of the head is stripped? Should I use some lubricant to assist in the tightening?
Thanks in advance.
