Question about Sunpak Photography

1 Answer

Why can't I find a replacement part?

I need a crank handle. I broke in 1/2 but can't be glued back together. It's attached to the tripod by a screw so it's a simple fix. Help? I cannot crank the tripod up with out it.

Available replacement parts for Sunpack tripods are pretty much limited to new heads, mounting plates, or carry cases; take a look at what B&H Photo has to offer. You don't say what specific tripod you have, but I'd suggest a search at eBay where several are available at auction right now. Furthermore, a check of completed auction/sales shows both new and lightly used ones sold in the past month for between $10 to $50. Buy one for parts or use it as is. You won't find any part plus shipping for less than that.

Sunpack makes consumer not pro level tripods even though the term Pro may appear in some product names. When you buy a tripod that costs $400 and up without the head, you get more options for replacement parts. I have a Sunpack myself for lightest duty when hiking, but my main tripod is a Manfrotto with the grip head. The huge difference in cost makes a corresponding difference in what parts I can find online. When my Sunpack broke (in a different way than yours but equally unusable) I used gaffer's tape to hold it together until I could find a new one (on eBay for $15).

Good luck!

If the handle is plastic I would drill matching holes in the broken end, cut the head off a screw the same size and length mix some epoxy (JB weld) apply it to the screw and push it together.

The handle broke, right where it attaches with two screws. Down't look like there is a replacement piece for it. any suggestions?


I had the same thing happen to me once with a sandwich toaster, it was a plastic handle and I have a feeling the one on your waffle maker may be so as well. The way I got over it was by gluing it back in place with Araldite.

If you have never used it, it is an epoxy resin in two tubes, you mix together an equal quantity of each and apply to the broken edges. You don't need to use very much. If that brand is not available in your area, just ask in any DIY store for an epoxy resin, nothing else is strong enough to do the job. Let it set completely, this could take a while and if it works, be careful when you use it, it will not be as strong as before.

Door Handle snapped off


You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screw(s) you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

In some cases, you then have to gently rotate the handle to unlock it.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
