I purchased a Manfrotto brand tripod (190CXPRO3), and it came with this doohickey. I have no idea what it is or its purpose. I don't have a manual either because I bought the tripod used.

Please someone tell me what is this thing and what does it do. Appreciation will be given. Thanks you.

I haven't seen this before, but my guess would that it's be a counter weight for your camera when you use the center column in a horizontal position.

Here's a link to the spares parts of your tripod but I don't see that part anywhere : http://www.manfrotto.c​om …/1/190CXPRO3_20​080122.pdf (external link)

It certainly looks as though it is meant to replace the centre column and the ballhead mounts on it.

I've done something home made for my 055 to do exactly that.

Send the photo to Manfrotto and ask them.

I've seen that part before but cannot remember what it is meant for. I know that nothing like it came with my 190.

What size is the thread on it? If it's 1/4X20, it's probably something that goes into the tripod socket on the camera. If the thread is 3/8X16, it's likely the head mounts to it in some fashion.

Could it be part of the quick release mechanism for the Manfrotto 3263 (external link) head, or one of its predecessors?
