Quote:Interesting, thanks Nippon. So gently snugging the set-screws did the trick for you? What was the nail polish for?
Quote:just my 2 cents here, i think this mount is a very poor design. i had one about a year age and nothing worked proper right out of the box. i should have shipped it back but stubborn me i started to work on it. i kept the tripod and tossed the head. good luck with yours. don

Funny, I threw away the tripod and kept the mount and it is now riding on a CG5 tripod.
