Home About Us I Have A... I Dont Know... Other Items Repairs



Note to our customers who have Ambico Tripods: We DO NOT manufacture Ambico tripods, we are NOT affiliated or connected with them in any way.  We do have 2 quick releases that will fit SOME of their tripods and that is all.  Don't blame us if you bought it and are dissatisfied with it.  We didn't make it; sell it to you, nor did we tell you to buy it and we don't deserve the abuse heaped upon us for your decision. Thank you.

Ambico Quick Releases
Measure the width of the opening of your Ambico tripod. 
If it is  either the standard 46mm opening using the QB-4W or the standard 42mm opening in the 3502. 

We do not have individual tripod models listed because of variations in the sizes of the openings on the same model heads. 

Measure the opening of the tripod head front to back and side to side; choose a quick release with a slightly smaller dimension.

Openings that are 45.5mm or 46mm square will accept the QB-4w which is 45mm square.

Openings that are 40.5mm or 41mm square will accept the 3502 which is 41mm square.

Openings between 45mm and 41mm are not accommodated at this time.

Please note that we use "Quick Release Plate" as our standard terminology for these parts.  They are often called other things such as: quick receivers, quick shoes, quick plates, quick release shoes, quick release plates, quick release pads, tripod tops, tripod mounting plates, tripod shoes etc.

Not all parts listed here are the original manufacturers.  We will substitute quick releases from other manufacturers at our discretion, as needed to replace those that are not available. Not all tripods or quick releases listed here are current and many are, in fact, no longer available from the original manufacturer.  All our substitutes have been checked against on original to ensure it exactitude.  Those that are questionable are marked as such.  Any parts that are used will be clearly marked.  As such this site rarely sells used items unless there is no availability for new parts.  Used parts will be marked as such.   We add brands, models and parts as we find out.  If you have any info for us, please let us know.  We will use it to help somebody else later.
