SOURCE: VGB3 leg lock broke

On the velbon vgb 3, the leg locks consist of a lever, one or two pieces of metal and a plastic piece. The metal and plastic pieces rest in a depression against the lever. When the lever is pulled out, pressure against the smaller leg section is released. When the lever is pushed in, pressure against the smaller leg section is exerted, locking the legs in place. On the back side of each joint, there is a phillips head screw which acts as a stop to keep the leg section from coming all the way out. When the screw is backed out, the leg section can be removed, exposing the latching mechanism. If the only problem is that the latch mechanism came apart, it can simply be reassembled. If, however, something broke and allowed the latch assemby to come apart, that will have to be dealt with as well. My guess is that the phillips screw may have become loose, and the latch came apart.

SOURCE: Leg lock broken

Assuming you still have the female part with the treads in tact, you can do what I did. I used a hose clamp, the kind used on radiators, but larger. First, take off the lock down knob, then put the hose clamp over the broken plastic housing and mark where the knob would screw through. Then remove the hose clamp, placing it on a sturdy surface and use a 5/16 drill bit to make a hole where the lock down know will pass through. Place the hose clamp over the plastic housing, insert the knob, tighten the hose clamp (but not so much that it restricts the tripod leg from moving) and you are done! I can send you pictures of the process and the final result. It saved me from buying a new tripod! I can be e-mailed at boingsplatplop@yahoo.com if you have questions.

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.

bogen and manfrotto are the same company

Vivitar 980 leg lock replacement


Who are these people designing the leg locks. These are the poorest examples of engineering. Even a child could see that the leg lock begs to be broken. Maybe Vivitar should stick to flashes

Can't find a Vivitar phone number to repair my 550


No, please. I was looking for the company-related repair center. I think an outfit by the name of Sakar is the official repair center, but time will tell.


Thanks but no thanks

I did not have any luck in locating the leg locking assembly for my Vivitar V3000. Instead, I plastic welded both that were broken on mine. So far, so good!
