Question about Tripods & Monopods
The leg adjustment lock broke. The lever I have..The plastic main housing that attaches to the alum. legs broke. No luck in finding a replacement. With legs extented height is about 55" and you can crack up the center appxo. 10"-11".
Assuming you still have the female part with the treads in tact, you can do what I did. I used a hose clamp, the kind used on radiators, but larger. First, take off the lock down knob, then put the hose clamp over the broken plastic housing and mark where the knob would screw through. Then remove the hose clamp, placing it on a sturdy surface and use a 5/16 drill bit to make a hole where the lock down know will pass through. Place the hose clamp over the plastic housing, insert the knob, tighten the hose clamp (but not so much that it restricts the tripod leg from moving) and you are done! I can send you pictures of the process and the final result. It saved me from buying a new tripod! I can be e-mailed at email@example.com if you have questions.
