Thank you to Stewart Tsuji who sent us a picture of his Vivitar VPT-30 to identify the correct quick release plate.  It is the QS-47.

Thank you to Robert Heiligman who helped identify the correct quick release plate to fit the V1000.  It is the QS-03.

Thank you to David E. who helped us correct an error on our page.  Thanks, we cannot do it without y'all/

Did you know that some of the Vivitar tripods have removable heads?  If the head is damaged and you can screw it off leaving a threaded screw on the top of the tripod; you can replace it with another brand of pan head or ball head and keep your tripod legs.

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.
