It really sounds as if the head is not clamping correctly. Or it is a very lightweight tripod intended for a point and shoot camera. Those are not heavy lenses so do not have a lens mounting foot which is placed at the balance point for either heavy bodies or light bodies(there are usually two mount threads to balance either light or heavy cameras).
What brand and model head do you use? An L bracket is not needed for direct camera mounting in landscape mode.
Most heads have adjustments for setting the range of tightening pressure exerted on the ball. Yours might not be adjusted to fit the ball of your head.
