    @gr8fuldoug, can you help with this one? I tried to look up the specs for the tripod, but the available info is woefully sparse, can't even tell what the stud size is on the tripod, nor the diameter of the head platform.

    OP, the LH-55 can mate up to either a 3/8" or 1/4" stud, and as long as the head base of the tripod (the large flat surface surrounding the threaded mounting stud) is 72mm or greater, you're good to go. If it's slightly less than that, you are still *probably* good to go, but I'll let Doug confirm that.
