    Need extra long 1/4" screw for bogen quick release

    My Bogen quick release adapters all have to short of a screw to engage the tripod socket on a new camera. Anyone know if they make a special long screw version or some such?

    It takes a 1/4" screw and needs to come off the adapter another 1/4" - 1/2" or so ideally.

    For a manafrotto head? I bet you could just prowl the hardware store and get a 1/4" screw with a big enough head. It's not a special thread or anything. Or is it?

    I don't think they would make a long screw version, because it might wreck a 35mm type camera. But you can take the circlip off and remove the screw and replace it with a longer bolt from the hardware store.

    One of these:



    The thread itself has a D ring on the bottom so you can screw it in and out with your fingers. I suppose I could just attach it permanently if needed though with a wrench

    Wish mine could be screwed with my fingers. Always need to remember the screwdriver.

    I use long screws on my tripods. I put a wingnut reversed on first. Then I screw into the camera base lightly and the wingnut tightens against the tripod bottom.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    I like Home Depot. But in this case take the camera and QR adapter to a real hardware store where you can try and buy what you need and it doesn't come in plastic bags.

    I was able to find a 3/4" long screw that works good. Only complaint is that I need a wrench to remove it - but it only cost $0.10!
