    I have tried the search function but can't find an answer to my ???
    I recently purchased a Slik 88N from a yard sale for $10.00 ( Can't go wrong with that price) It is in excellent condition, however it is missing the quick release post.
    I have found one online but not sure if it will fit this unit.
    Any info on where to find or tech info so I can build would be a great help.
    Thank's

    You might find that the rapid release shoe is specific to the head so without being able to try the thing out first there is no guarantee it will fit.
    Your best bet would be to try and get a new head unit. Most Slik units should fit as well as ones by other manufacturers like Cullmann.
    Just check the mount and trawl e-Bay.

    If you can point me at where you found one on line, I should be able to give you an ID on it, assuming there's a photograph accompanying it. I've got one of the 88N's back in the UK which I've had since Adam was a lad.

    Yep, that definitely looks like it. You should be safe to buy that one.
