The leg clamp on my tripod is broken i need to find a replacement


They were not made to be serviced. They were made to be disposable essentially, but you might contact the folks at B&H to see if they may have a solution.

Otherwise depending how it broke, it might be able to be cemented, or reconfigured to accept a different type of clamp. I had a no name type of tripod that required some caredul filing to restore a lip on a clamp so it would lock after the original lip snapped off.

Manfrotto 685B locking problem


I had the same problem with the Manfrotto 685B, and it was due to the grease from the middle section leaking into its locking mechanism. I fixed the problem by: 1. Detach the middle from the bottom section by twisting the metal hub between them counterclockwise. 2. Wipe the grease off from the middle section's locking mechanism, especially from the three gray protrusions. 3. Use a bit of dish detergent to degrease the inside shaft of the bottom section. 4. Dry thoroughly. 5. Reassemble the section back, pressing the monopod release lever to facilitate the insertion. Reclose the metal hub. Ha! Fixed!!1!1!!eleven1!!

The tightening screw for the main pole of my quantaray QSX 9002TM tripod broke very easily after I was careful to never over-tighten. Is there any option than sending the entire unit back to quantaray...


I had the exact same issue. I found a snapper tubing clamp at an aquarium store that works perfectly. Do an internet search on "snapper tubing clamp" or "snapper hose clamp", you'll find many suppliers. These clamps are good because there are many sizes, they are fairly adjustable, and easy to release. I set up the tripod, slide/attach the clamp on the main pole right above where the screw used to be and tighten the clamp until it doesn't allow any sliding.
You might also get lucky and find an adjustable tube clamp at a bicycle store or music store.

Reassembling telescopic sections for a 676B monopod


Each leg lock has a leg locking lever and a screw that hold the clamp assembly tight to the leg. Unlock the leg lock lever, loosen the screw above it that holds the clamp tight to the leg. The legs should fit into each other sice each leg is slightly larger or smaller then then next one. Slide the clamps in the approprite places and tighten the screw enough to hold the clamp assembly tight, but do not over tighten it. Over tightening will damage the 679 tubes.

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.
