SunPAK PRO 423PX PART

The leg attachment ring on the tripod broke on one of the legs. The leg appears to be intact but I need that ring to screw the legs back on. The pistol grip is loose and the ball is not secure. I can replace is with something better but I'd like to save the tripod. I've had it a little over a year.

    This is the part that broke. It's the ring where all the legs can be attached. There's no damage on the leg portion. Just the attachment ring.

Leg lock broken


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 boingsplatplop@yahoo.com if you have questions.

Is it possible to buy a replacement leg for a GB1140?


I would contact the factory and see if they have replacement part available. Try their website and ask. Most large retail manufactures have parts avaiable.

VGB3 leg lock broke


On the velbon vgb 3, the leg locks consist of a lever, one or two pieces of metal and a plastic piece. The metal and plastic pieces rest in a depression against the lever. When the lever is pulled out, pressure against the smaller leg section is released. When the lever is pushed in, pressure against the smaller leg section is exerted, locking the legs in place. On the back side of each joint, there is a phillips head screw which acts as a stop to keep the leg section from coming all the way out. When the screw is backed out, the leg section can be removed, exposing the latching mechanism. If the only problem is that the latch mechanism came apart, it can simply be reassembled. If, however, something broke and allowed the latch assemby to come apart, that will have to be dealt with as well. My guess is that the phillips screw may have become loose, and the latch came apart.
