Help: Manfrotto 190CXPro4

Finally went for that one as I had Jessops vouchers (via Tesco)

Bloody Jessops probably gave me a ex display model. Only noticed when I arrived home as I did not open it in shop. No tag, no user manual, incomplete packaging.

Anyway, I can't figure out what's the function of one on the loose plastic type hook near the head. Essentially there is a "knob" on each of the three sides. One is to control the central column, the second one is a hook for weights, but I can't figure out what's the 3rd bit is for.

If anyone has a Manfrotto similar to this can you please elaborate what is it for?

I have an 055. There is a tool to tighten the leg hinges on it. That might be your mystery item. On mine it is part of the column control.

Well no,

it looks like a hook with a piece of loose plastic plug

It's to connect one end of the (optional) carrying strap to.
