Part for O'Connor Tripod Head

Recommended Posts

I have an O'Connor 1030B Tripod head that needs a part. The mounting point between the pan handle and the head itself has been worn down over the years and now slips when tilting the camera. Does anyone know the part number or where I could find it? Please see picture for the exact piece I am talking about.


Thank you.

There are some drawings you can download from O'Connor. If you can't find them I can send them. In that case PM me with your email. If for some odd reason you can't get your part from O'Connor you could try Transylvania Films, they overhaul a lot of old O'Connor and have parts.

The rosette is the only part of OConnor fluid heads that get worn off. Not sure about the part number though. You need to contact Oconnor through their site ocon.com or you can check any of your resellers Filmtools/Abel cine etc.

They still look good. I have seen worse…no teeth!


The part that is worn down on the left is the platform handle spline p/n 1030-129. It is now composed of a plastic material.


The part that is worn down on the right (part of the arm) is the handle head p/n 1030-084.


Remove the arm and you will need an Allen key to remove 3 screws p/n 04298 holding the platform handle spline. Along with it is a roll pin p/n 00506 which is a little difficult to remove. It’s best to get one – it is very cheap compared to the spline and the handle head.


If you ever break the Kipp lever (the little arm that you pull out to tighten the arm down) its p/n 09119 along with a washer and screw, if needed, p/n 04294 and p/n 08434, respectively. I’ve seen them get broken when the tripod/head is placed in a narrow case.


These parts should be available from a pro or broadcast camera shop.
