Is there a "lock" position on on the 3 leg spread of this tripod?


-Providing that the image shown is the tripod you own..., the top leg lock levers on each leg is designed to lock the spreader angle of each leg.
-If this is not holding the leg at the correct angle...., either you are putting more weight on it than it was designed to hold..., or the 'cam' on the various locks has worn.
-A 'stop gap' fix for this problem is to insert a very thin wedge between the lever & the leg tube..., thus providing a greater amount of pressure on the tube, (this would need to be done every time the tripod is set up).
-Replacement parts are not available for this tripod & they were not designed to be user serviceable ...., sorry!!!

Leg stuck on Manfrotto 732CY tripod


Other than the leg locks themselves, sometimes Manfrotto expands the last portion of the leg tube that slides into the leg tube above it. If you need some spare parts you can find them here.

We just got our Bushnell Voyager 78-9945 Reflector Telescope. It comes with the poorest manual I have ever seen. How do you assemble the eye piece?, what is the little shiny metal triangle piece for? Does...


I think I already answered this question. Eyepieces are NOT assembled they are one piece like this picture:
http://www.amazon.com/Celestron-93342-17MM-Plossl-Eyepiece/dp/B000YKZKNI

They simply slip into the hole of the focuser -- straight in. The larger the number written on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification.

In the picture above there is a metal triangle holding the tripod legs apart-- it is called a "tripod spreader" or a tripod "tray"-- used for holding eyepieces and other small pieces of equipment while you are using the scope.

Hope that helps you.

I have a Coastar VTR-95RA tripod. Three flip locks cracked


Coastar has been out of business for at least 15 years, I do not know of anyone that has those parts since Coastar used shut down and went away. Unfortunately that tripod is no longer usable, unless you can find another with something else broken aned scavage the parts you need. Be careful to mathc the model numbers exactly as there were several different models starting with VTR-9... and they may not all be interchangeable.

With what can I lubricate the legs onmy aluminum Mafrotto tripod?


Dear Winnieg,
I would avoid using a lubricant on your tripod legs, because you run the risk of the legs not tightening down anymore. I would try cleaning the tripod thoroughly first, because most of the time this is caused by dirt. If that dosen't work I would try rubbing on a small amount of candle wax onto the legs, and then wipe the legs down with a clothe.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

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.
