Kevin,

I believe you should unscrew the tripod head from the tripod itself. This will expose a 3/8" bolt coming vertically out of the top of the tripod. The UA mount should screw onto this bolt.

There needs to be a vertical post of the right size to match the T-mount light like the one Bill mentioned on your tripod. I am not familiar with that particular tripod so I am not sure what it has, but below is a link to the Oberwerk website showing the mounted T-mount light. I hope it helps.

I have the T-mount. As NW said, you need to screw the mounting post directly onto the tripod. Larry (UA) does different mounting posts, internally drilled and tapped for different tripods. Photographic tripods usually have a 1/4" or 3/8" thread (I think all the Bogens have 3/8"); surveyors usually have a 5/8".

You might find the UA Yahoo group to be useful:
