Camera mounting
7
The camera is attached to the head by means of a slide plate (17), which is provided with a springloaded locating pin (5) and 1/4 in. (6) and 3/8 in. (19) screws. When not in use, the screws are stowed in the
camera mounting platform (7). The slide plate (17) is loaded from above into the side-loading clamp
mechanism, and a clamp (2) is provided to hold the slide plate in position. The release button (1) allows
removal of the slide plate (17) from the head.
Pan bar
8
Pan bar mounting points (16) are located at the rear of the head, on either side of the camera mounting
platform. The pan bar (9) is attached using a pan bar clamp, with angular adjustment available on the mount
serrations. A single fixed pan bar (9) is supplied. A second pan bar may be fitted.
Pozi-Loc tripod
9
The Pozi-Loc two-stage tripod (Fig 1.2) has aluminium legs and a 75 mm levelling bowl (20). It is fitted
with the highly-efficient Pozi-Loc leg clamp (21), which provides quick set-up and easy adjustment.
Tripod spreaders
10
Depending on which Pro-6HDV system was purchased, the tripod is supplied with either a floor spreader
(Fig 1.2) or a mid-level spreader (Fig 1.3). Both tripod spreaders increase the rigidity of the tripod.
Pro-6 HDVF system
11
The Pro-6 HDVF system utilizes a floor spreader (Fig 1.2) which, being flexible, compensates for
uneven ground, protects floors and carpets and prevents the tripod legs sinking into soft ground. It should be
used at all times.
NOTE:
Always use the spreader where possible as this increases rigidity of the tripod. Being
flexible, the spreader compensates for uneven ground.
It can be removed and a dolly fitted.
At the fullest extension of the spreader and with all legs fully retracted, the tripod can be
used at its lowest operating height. Although the tripod can be set up lower than this
without the spreader, it is NOT recommended as the tripod geometry becomes unstable
12
Each arm is of the spreader is adjustable for length (23) and the tripod feet are secured by rubber
straps (24).

General
1
Protouch products are robustly made to high engineering standards and little attention is required to
maintain serviceability save regular cleaning. Attention to the following points will ensure a long and useful
service life with minimum need for repair.
Cleaning
2
During indoor use, the only cleaning required should be a regular wipe over with a lint-free cloth. Dirt
accumulated during storage may be removed using a semi-stiff brush. Particular attention should be paid to
the ball mounting face of the head, the space between the tilting assembly and the base and the mounting
bowl of the tripod.
3
Use out-of-doors under adverse conditions will require special attention. Salt spray should be washed
off with fresh water at the earliest opportunity. Sand and dirt acts as an abrasive and should be removed using
a semi-stiff brush or vacuum cleaner.
NOTE:
Use only detergent-based cleaners. DO NOT use solvent- or oil-based cleaners, abrasives
or wire brushes to remove accumulations of dirt, as these damage the protective surfaces.
Routine maintenance
4
During use, check the following:
4.1
Check the illumination of the level bubble. Replace battery if the switch (13) is illuminated red.
4.2
Check the effectiveness of the pan brake. Reset as necessary.
4.3
Check the effectiveness of the camera slide plate clamp. Reset as necessary.
4.4
Check the effectiveness of the tripod leg clamps. Reset as necessary.
