Unless I am the one confused, yes!?? As far as I am aware it just screws on....someone please correct me if I am wrong!!

I think these things have std threads 1/4", 3/8" etc. The head should screw straight onto the tripod with one of these two threads being used. I have ordered a 1/4" to 3/8" thread increaser which I know I will need somewhere along the line, if only to connect the head to camera, which has a 3/8" hole.

You've got me worried now...
