Setting up this Head is not dicult. but reading these instructions
will allow you to get the most out of the product.
Assembling the SEVENOAK Gimbal Head is a simple matter of
attaching the Head's platform (detached to make it more compact
for shipping) to the swinging arm of the Head. Do not tighten the
platform knob unless it is mounted on the Head.
Align the platform jaws
properly with the dovetail grooves
in the swing arm. Slide the platform
onto the swing arm of the Head.
Slide the platform all the way
down until it hits the “stop” at the
    Tighten the platform knob
firmly. (The platform should lock
securely to the arm without the
need to apply extreme torque).
The platform height will be adjusted
later if needed.
    Firmly tighten the lower (pan) knob.
    Position the Head with
the spool mounting hole (located
under the spool) directly over the
threaded tripod mounting stud.
It is important to keep the Head
completely straight (vertical) over
the stud to keep the spool threads
from cross - threading.
    Screw the Head clockwise
onto the stud of your tripod until
it seats the bottom spool of the
Head and the tripod mounting
plate. Use the leverage hole to
achieve a tighter attachment if
desired (see picture on right).Loosen
the pan knob slightly and rotate
the Head to check the security of
the mount. The spool should not
loosen when you turn the Head
counterclockwise, and the Head
should not wobble at all.
If your tripod has a smaller ¼” mounting stud , check to see
if it is a reversible stud with a 3/8”-16 threaded section on the
other end. If so, reverse the stud and use the 3/8” end of the
stud. If the ¼” stud is not reversible, you will need to use a
reducer bushing to mount the Head to the tripod.

Attaching Your Lens to The SEVENOAK

Gimbal Head

Prerequisite: Sevenoak

Quick Release Plate

Step 1:
    Tighten the tilt knob of the
swing arm-make sure that the Head’s
platform is level so that the Head is
stable while you are loading your lens.
Step 2:
    Open the jaws of the quick-release
clamp wide enough so that the jaws
clear the entire width of the QR plate
attached to the foot of your lens.
Step 3:
While supporting your lens,insert
the quick-release plate on your lens into
the jaws of the clamp and tighten the
clamp securely.Make sure the
quick-release plate is seated properly
and captive in the clamp jaws before
letting go of the lens.
Position the Head's platform at its lowest position and parallel to the
ground. Tighten the Head's tilt knob. Mount your lens (with camera
body attached). Stand behind the lens/camera setup and hold the
camera body as if you are going to take a picture.
STEP 1: Preparing to Balance:
Loosen the tilt knob of the SEVENOAK Gimbal Head SLOWLY
-stand ready to catch the lens or camera body should one
end or the other rapidly tilt down! Adjust the horizontal
position of the lens forward or backwards depending on
how the lens tips (see figures below). SAFETY NOTE: Re
-tighten the clamp after each adjustment, no matter how
small! Use the two safety stop screws provided with your
lens plate or replacement foot to prevent the lens/camera
combo from sliding out of the clamp when loosened.
If the front of the lens tilts downward
you will need to slide the lens back in
the clamp, towards you.
If the front of the lens, tilts upward
you will need to slide lens forward,
away from you.
