Question about Photography
Delta Airlines broke one of the leg locks on my $100 Calumet tripod on a recent flight. Calumet now seems to be out of business. My tripod is useless with one leg section that won't stay in place. Does anyone know where I can find a new part to fix this?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

Here we go. It sounds like you might have a problem with a strip thread or oil on the legs. If the thread is stripped you'll have to replace it. If it is not grabbing, wipe the legs down with alcohol or some type of solvant. If the wipe down does not work try a fine sand paper so that it grabs better. Let me know how you make out.

There is a brass pin that hold the flip lever and the leg lock onto the leg. Rest the brocken leg on the edge of a work bench. You should gently tap out the brass pin and carefully remove the tension block inside the square hole where the flip lever fits into. Carefully, since the tension block is curved and if you put it back wrong with the curved part facing in toward the leg it will be too tight and break the leg lock again the first time you lock it.
