I recently took a trip to Utah and Arizona, photographing slot canyons and some national parks. I disassembled the BH-40 from my gitzo 2541 (I removed the center tube permanently and directly mount my ballhead to the tripod. I am short, no need for the extension). When I went to reassemble the ballhead and tripod, I was unable to get my ballhead to mount flat so it felt unstable. I quickly made some modifications to render the unit useful- basically could not pan.
Now that I am back home, I am trying to figure out what I did wrong. I have the unit reassembled and it is loose on the tripod.
Please help. The unit did not come with assembly instructions. Thanks, Alison

This is one of the many reasons why I like this website. This trick worked perfectly. Thank you, Jimbert! You saved me a shipping back to RRS. Collectively, the knowledge and resouces of this group is so impressive. Alison
