C-12 Installation Instructions: Gitzo 1780M


Removing the Existing Clamp:   

Remove the three cap screws with the 2.5mm hex key. Remove the mounting platform from the stem, but leave the foam inside the stem's central hole. Removal complete. .

Installing the C-12:   

Remove the three set screws from the clamp with the 2.5mm hex key. Thread the Brass Bushing into the clamp's central hole (thread it in from the bottom surface of the clamp using a penny or similar sized coin as an installation tool). Make sure the bushing is fully threaded-in and not sticking up proud. The purpose of the bushing is to keep the bubble level from falling out of the stem of the head. Replace the removed set screws with the three enclosed M3 screws by placing them into the holes on the front of the clamp. Note: There should be a piece of foam in the stem’s central hole; do not remove it. Its purpose is to keep the stem’s bubble level from rattling around. Set the clamp on the stem, matching up the three holes on the stem with the three screws. Attach the Clamp to the ball head using the 2.5mm hex key.
