If you can take the 3-way head out, just replace it with a cheap ball head (since you mentioned that quality was not a criteria). For cheap ball-heads, look around several shops at the Peninsula area, or look on ebay.

Your model of Slik tripod does not have a removable head. My advice, if you really fed up with it, is to dump it and then budget for a good ball head + tripod for about $150 thereabouts.
