Question about Slik U-212DX Tripod

2 Answers

The lower leg clamp on my SLIK U212 deluxe is cracked.

Because it's cracked, it doesn't hold the leg in position. Is it possible to replace the clamp or the leg without having to get a new tripod?

Don't buy foreign made junk to start with, unless its just some cheap el crappo stuff you're willing to trash if it breaks.

Hi - had one myself years ago - excellent 'pod. Firstly, the auxiliary screw mount on the leg is for whatever purpose you choose - standard 1/4 " thread, so you can mount a flash gun on it. However, combined with the rest of your query (IIRC), to lower the viewpoint you firstly undo the leg locks where the bracing struts meet the legs - this enables you to lower the 'pod to its lowest level (don't forget to raise the centre column).
Then, unscrew the entire head from the top of the centre column, and mount it on the screw mount we spoke of earlier - this is about the lowest you can get it. Drawback is that you need to kneel down to see through the viewfinder. Hope this helps.

I think you shuld take your Tripod down to the hardware store and have someone evaluate and assist you to solve this challenge. Take your camera with you also.
