    I have used this tripod very little, but each time I do the plastic quick release that tighten the legs breaks when the tab is pushed down to tighten. I took it back to the camera store where I purchased it and they sent it off. I got it back about 4 months later fixed. But the first time I used it again two more of the plastic quick release levers broke.

How do you release the support leg of the familyfix isofix base?


Hi Emer,

On the support leg there is an area of grey plastic with grip-friendly texture. Grab hold of the support leg using this section and squeeze - there is a button either side of the support leg that you will depress by squeezing this grey section which will release the support leg.

Cant get the fuel quick conncect to release.


Are you using the proper quick disconnect tool and size. If not, go to autoparts store and purchase a cheap set. Choose the right tubing size one and slip it right around the line. Then, push it foward into the flare of the connector, and just pull it apart..... or you have what's called a hair pin type nylon connector. I believe that you just pull out on the tab and it will relese the line. If you break it, I think you can get more from autoparts store. Good luck!42301612

I have a Manfrotto 058 tripod. One leg wont hold weight & retracts under load. This model uses a quick release lever at the top of the leg to control the telescopic height of each leg. How can I repair...


If you notice, the legs locks are attached to bothe the upper part of the leg and the sloghtly smaller diameter lower. Take a socket (8mm I believe) and tighten the lower 2 nuts to the bottom of the leg lock.

Leg slips will not lock


Although I'm not familiar with your particular make and model it sounds like a common problem which affects many other tripods. If the legs clamp with a lever action then if you closely examine each clamp as you activate the lever I expect that you'll find a small crack opens up in the clamp assembly.

It's a faulty design as the clamps simply aren't strong enough for the load and eventually crack due to fatigue. Some manufacturers supply replacement leg clamps but they also fail and fitting them usually costs more than the tripod is worth.

Next time, consider buying a tripod which has rotating collars to lock the legs with. They're not as quick to operate as lever action (a.k.a. "quick release") clamps, but they don't take much longer and last far longer. Rotating collar clamps are only suitable for tubular legs, and to be as rigid as extruded profile legs there's usually an increased weight penalty unless you spend far more on carbon fibre versions.

Personally, I tend to buy cheap but perfectly good non brand name lightweight tripods which I can get for £10 including a carry bag and handle and expect to have to replace them when broken: usually about once a year. It's a lot cheaper than spending over £300 on a good one and means I can afford to have a spare one in the car.

ALDI (in the UK and Europe) sell a £10 tripod which comes with a handle, carry bag, pan/tilt head,quick release leg clamps, geared centre column plus two quick release mounting plates and has a bag hook at the bottom of the centre column; it even has a no quibble three year guarantee. It's not a smooth or as well built as many, but can't be beaten at the price.

I have purchased the ML-L3 remote for my Nikon D5000. I can figure how to get it to work? Any help?


Refer to your camera's user manual and hopefully you have a section in that manual that talks about "Release Mode". I have a D90 so I am can only guide you to my research. Hopefully your camera has a release mode section that shows you how to change mode from "single frame" to "continious low speed" to continuous high speed", self timer...and the two that you need will be "delayed remote" and "quick response". All the best.

I have a bogen 3011 which uses the old screw leg clamps, but I purchased the newer quick release clamps for the legs. I'm at a loss on how to install them - any help out there>


Go to:
www.bogentripodparts.com
and watch the videos. Ther is a video, not for your particular model, but should work. Essentially you remove the legs, use top half of lock for upper part then lower part for slide out smaller diameter part of leg.

ART055 manfrotto pro tripod


Hey there fotoflika, I have had a similiar problem in the past and found replacement parts unavailable. My solution was to drill a small hole through the leg section, and I used a similiar size allen key to stick in the hole, effectively locking the leg in place. You could drill several holes for different extension lengths. Crude I admit, but cheaper than buying a new tripod.
