Can I replace the head on my tripod?
As the previous replies note, heads on cheap tripods are not meant to be removed. Even if you can, you can’t replace it since the mount is not anything standard. There won’t be any head you can buy that will fit.
Which type of tripod head is best?
Ball heads are the most popular tripod head for photography. The rotating ball lets you position the camera in almost any way imaginable, with a locking screw letting you lock the ball in position.
How do you tighten a tripod head?
Tighten the pan knob on the new head. Just like with removing the old head, all the parts on the new head need to be locked or it won’t screw on properly. Turn the pan knob clockwise until it stops to lock the head in place. If there are any other adjustment knobs on the new head, tighten them as well.
