I am not sure when it may have started, but there is a 1/4-20 threaded
"hole" (actually 2) underneath the foam handle on my Arrow.  I was able to
screw in a bolt from one side through to the other.

So if you have a tripod, you could replace the stock bolt on the quick
release part with a longer one and screw it in through both sides.  I would
think you *could* get away with doing only one side, but I would attempt to
get both sides.
