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.
thanks,
Nate

Where can i get a quick release shoe or platform that screws to the camera for a velbon stratos 460q tripod and what is the price for it and for shipping thanks for your help.


Velbon no longer manufactures this part. I can be ordered from a different manufacturer through www.tripodquickrelease.com or www.precision-camera.com. It may look different because it's a different manufacturer, but it is the right size and shape.
