User Manual



TBH ball head has it all: Security, versatility, and ease of use. Its universal, 38-mm quick shoe plate with clamp knob not only allows for hassle-free use with other standardized tripod heads, but it also enables fine camera placement adjustments when attached without risk of accidental release thanks to its built in safety pin. An oversized, easy-to-grip lever can be repositioned easily for comfortable use and provides unwaveringly secure locking, so your gear stays in place, no matter the angle. An oxidization anodized surface on the ball ensures it will remain scratch free and provide ultra-smooth and precise movements.

Does the TBH 40 for 69.99 on your website include any quick release plates (QS 60)? Also on your website there is a link for a mail-in rebate for a tripod hod with a purchase between 6/1/15 and 8/31/15. Is that still applicable?

Asked by: abz11
Hello- The TBH-40 comes with 1 QS-60. If you require any additional they are available from our Service Center at 800-875-3322 x120. The rebate from last year is not applicable any longer.

In what weighs does the Vanguard TBH-40 differ from the Vanguard differ from the Vanguard TBH-100? And how does the TBH series bullheads differ from the SBH series bullheads?

Asked by: Joseph
Hello Joseph- The TBH-40 and TBH-100 differ in max load capacity, weight and height of the ball heads. The TBH-100 will be bigger, hold more weight, and be taller. The main difference between the TBH & SBH series is the TBH series is Arca Swiss compatible. The SBH series is not.
