Question about Photography
I dropped tripod and the platfrom locking lever smashed and is unrepairable, it looks like I could uncrew it and replace it but cannot find anyone who supplies parts - any ideas?
SOURCE: Need parts to repair pan handle
I just had this problem! I took it to Ace hardware and the guys helped me out, big time. I have a PH-358 panhandle and the same piece fell of during a shoot into some brush and dirt outside.
We (they) fixed it using a #6 metric bolt and butterfly wing nut along with two grommets (3/8 ID and 5/8 OD). It worked perfectly! Not only does it hold the handle together but you can tighten or loosen the handle as well using the butterfly wing nut.

i have had this happen before many times. You can just pick up another bolt and fastener from your local hardware store that will fit in place of the original. It takes a little bit to find the right ones but they had the right ones.
hope this helps.
