Is there a "lock" position on on the 3 leg spread of this tripod?


-Providing that the image shown is the tripod you own..., the top leg lock levers on each leg is designed to lock the spreader angle of each leg.
-If this is not holding the leg at the correct angle...., either you are putting more weight on it than it was designed to hold..., or the 'cam' on the various locks has worn.
-A 'stop gap' fix for this problem is to insert a very thin wedge between the lever & the leg tube..., thus providing a greater amount of pressure on the tube, (this would need to be done every time the tripod is set up).
-Replacement parts are not available for this tripod & they were not designed to be user serviceable ...., sorry!!!

The lower leg would not lock and comes off.


The grey part might be a shim that fits up into the leg lock in order for it to fit more securely. Ambico is no longer in business, and parts are not available so you might have to replace the tripod if you can't fix it yourself. You find tripods here: www.itripod.com

Allegro tripod legs won't lock


Maybe it could be the clasps not the locks that are broken if you need it functioning right away wedge something in between the clasps, and locks, or the clasps could be over expanded shortten that, and you'd be set.

Trouble opening legs of my manfrotto tripod


Manfrotto have great warranties. If it is new, send it to Manfrotto to repair/replace the parts and make it whole again. If parts are worn it will be hard to tell you how to fix it without pictures, or know which model tripod you have.

The leg clamp on my tripod is broken i need to find a replacement


They were not made to be serviced. They were made to be disposable essentially, but you might contact the folks at B&H to see if they may have a solution.

Otherwise depending how it broke, it might be able to be cemented, or reconfigured to accept a different type of clamp. I had a no name type of tripod that required some caredul filing to restore a lip on a clamp so it would lock after the original lip snapped off.

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.
