Yep, http://www.kirkphoto.c​om …Quick-Release-Clamps.html (external link)

You should be able to get one that fits the thread of the head you've got there, just check the size of the thread.

Looks like a 1/4-20 thread on top. You will probably need a 3/8 - 1/4 reducing bushing for the new clamp. Kirk has the bushing.

Thanks for the suggestion, but just not worth to use in this tripod. the price of clamp plate can purchase a new budget tripod.

Thanks for advice. I will survey the cheapo clamp made in china.

I imagine one of those disc-shaped clamps would work well. I've got one on the way to try on my Tiltall.
