My tripod did not come with an instruction manual. Want to know whether the same is available as pdf? Could you tell me how to remove the central column so that the low angle holder can be fixed. Also why does it have an allen key?

Asked by: Lightbeings
Hello- There is not a PDF version of the manual, you can call the Service Center at 800-875-3322 x120 and a manual can be sent to you. At the bottom of the center column, there is a plastic bottom that needs to be removed to them remove the center column. The allen wrench is to adjust the tension of the leg locks.

Hello I would like to know if that rotating center column can be tightened into position as its being rotated from the top to the bottom. Thanks. 

Asked by: Mac25
Hello- We would not recommend it being used in that way,as the center column can not be tightened enough to prevent slipping.
