Question about Velbon Ultra MAXi Tripod
I really love this tripod because it's super compact and portable, but has great height when fully extended. So I'm trying to salvage the one I have now. The problem is the legs lock into place by turning the legs clockwise and unlock by turning counterclockwise. One of the legs seems to have lost some piece that keeps the segments together. When I extend that particular leg, it will slide all the way out of the tripod leg cylinder. There are three segments to the leg, so each segment, except for the last segment closest to the tripod, can slide directly off the tripod when loose. Any solutions besides buy a new one?
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.
