I went to my local Lake Michigan pier head the other day to capture some, supposedly, 20' waves rolling in. Pictures turned out great, but I got sand all up in my business. I have cleaned it out of everything now except the ball head, which I cannot seem to get apart. The manual told me nothing and I just can't seem to figure it out. I even pulled off the insulating sticker on the bottom expecting to find some hidden fasteners, but nothing. Any ideas?

Note to self: Next time in these conditions leave tripod in the car.

Did you look in the 3/8" mounting hole? There should be two things, a slot and a very small Allen head bolt. If you loosen the small bolt, it will allow you to take a regular screwdriver and remove the main bolt. The bottom should come right out. At the least there should be a bolt of some type in the hole. Check it out.

Hmmm, I assume you mean on the bottom of it? Nothing down there on mine. Only the threads for mounting it to the tripod.

Any other ideas?
