Manfrotto 685B locking problem

I had the same problem with the Manfrotto 685B, and it was due to the grease from the middle section leaking into its locking mechanism. I fixed the problem by: 1. Detach the middle from the bottom section by twisting the metal hub between them counterclockwise. 2. Wipe the grease off from the middle section's locking mechanism, especially from the three gray protrusions. 3. Use a bit of dish detergent to degrease the inside shaft of the bottom section. 4. Dry thoroughly. 5. Reassemble the section back, pressing the monopod release lever to facilitate the insertion. Reclose the metal hub. Ha! Fixed!!1!1!!eleven1!!

Locking tripod leg

Sorry, the mechanism and how it is put together should be repaired my Manfrotto. It has a one yar warranty when you bought it, and if you went to the Manfrotto website and registered it then the warranty is 3 years.

Hi,I have aManfrotto 458B and on one of the legs the quick release mechaniism isnt releasing have used lubbrication oil but as yet this does not seem to be working.

Because of the way the locking mechanism works inside the tripod I would recommend that you send the tripod back to Manfrotto / Bogen for repair. None of the parts inside the legs should be oiled, as the lubrication from the factory is enough. The parts not working is a symptom of a part being damaged or defective.

Vivitar tripod V900 has a broken friction level

Vivitar has been out of the tripod business for a few years now. They may no longer have the parts. You may be able to find another V900 and scavage the parts. Make sure the model numbers match exactly. The V900SE is a different year and does not share the same parts as the V900.

The leg is slightly off the track, which is a curved piece which fits along the tripod support rail. If you're not careful when collapsing the legs you'll force the leg to go off-track like this.

One Leg has loss it's grip.

take it apart, there is a rubber ring like a belt or rubber band, either broken or missing. you will have to find a relacement for that, may have to take apart another leg to have one to compare, course I don't honestly know where you will find that piece. too take it apart just keep spinning the lock counterclockwise until it comes off. good luck.
