question

My BH55 pan lock knob is stuck, and the base is unable to be locked into place. Is there a way to free the knob?
Asked by: Jeff C.
Mine came with the pan knob tightened by some someone who drinks WAY to much coffee. I wrapped the knob with a rag and used a pair of pliers to loosen it. Ended up with a small scratch on the knob. I don’t really care about the scratch as, after a lot of use, it’s not the only self inflicted blemish on the head.

How is this BH-55 head secured to a tripod without a set screw attached to the tripod?
Asked by: Derek
This head does not have a set screw, but it does have the standard 3/8" female end for attaching to almost any tripod. Once it is screwed on, it is extremely well secured.

Asked by: Lynda
Physically the RRS BH-55 head can be attached to a Befree tripod. However, due to the smaller size of the Befree and the limited weight load, it would not be recommended.
