Please state the make and model. But if it is any Vivitar model then like all budget tripods spares simply aren't available.

You either make a claim under the manufacturer's one year warranty or you chuck away your tripod and buy either another budget model or invest in a quality brand which does have spares support.

The only other option is to see if a friend or relative has an engineering workshop and can fabricate spare parts for you from scratch. It's likely to be a straightforward job, but not one which is worth paying for.

I'm looking for an elevator crank handle for a slik master classic tripod 6857u


By elevator crank handle I presume you mean the centre column adjuster. May be available from the manufacturer or importer, otherwise try Ebay or your local friendly camera service centre.

Not sure if this one works with your model exactly(doesn't have the "se" in the model number) but worth a try.
