    i was gifted a "Model #46984044 Sears tripod". but the
    Quick Release Clamp and pad is broken. i cant find a replacement or the size for a new one and then glue(mock) it to fit and stay. it has everything, case, box, and the spring pad works great. nice steel legs,

    Sorry if this is in wrong spot, not sure..

    Ebay maybe your friend here with this problem.

    Or depending on your skills, can you remove the old damaged head, and replace it with a new head from another brand, or a different type of head.
