Velbon Panhead Reference

Before you order any quick release check the head number first.  The Panhead number is actually more important than the tripod number since many of the tripods made in the past may have more than one style of head attached to the same tripod legs.

 If your head does not have a number listed, then the tripod number will suffice and can be found below in the other reference chart.

Velbon Quick Release Reference
Many of the old tripods made in the past may have more than one style of head attached to the tripod legs. Some tripods (old models) may not have a head listed.  The ones that we know of we have listed with multiple quick release numbers, depending upon the head that is installed on it.  If your head does not have a number listed, then the tripod number will suffice.

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.

Trade in your old tripod that doesn't have a useable head, or a broken leg, or no quick release.  Why throw it in the trash when we will separate the metal and recycle it.  Why keep it around if it is broken or unusable?
