So i just totally messed up the bolt on my quick release plate.
I bought a new lever style one, and figured it would be an easy change. They sell it separate, no warnings or notices that you really shouldnt buy it without sending the whole ball head back for them to do the swap.
I thought it was a hex screw in the plate. Nope. So after about 5 minutes i give a call up to Vancouver and the gentleman tells me, the bolt is locktite'd in place. Its pretty easy to undue, just lock the head in place and hit the release knob with a hammer.
well that went OK.. release knob has some flat spots now but i dont plan on going back. However, the bolt is locktight'ed in at both ends.
So now i have a ball with no head, no bolt, and release plate with a bolt stuck in. I tried to undue that and messed up the threads. Crap.
Now I gotta send it ALL back up to Vancouver and get them to fix it :P
and if there was a warning or mention that its not as easy as 'unscrew, rescrew, done' I probably wouldnt have even bothered or attempted it.
