Tripod Libec T58, top part of the leg broke

The leg of my Libec tripod broke on the very top part. I tried to get in touch with Libec Europe several times, but no response. Could this part be replaced? Where can I get a replacement part? Or is there another way to repair it (f.e. glue it)?

Picture attached. Thanks for your help!!! :)

I had a Porter-Cable that I was able to repair using three small pieces of lexan and a bandsaw. I took off one of the latches that were good and traced the pattern on the lexan and sawed out the handles. Cleaned them up with sandpaper andthen stacked them and drilled out the holes. Then I drilled two more holes for clearance for two 6-32 machine screws and nuts. Put the whole thing together and installed it - still working after four years.

How can I replace the quick release head for the libec th659dv tripod. A student has lost the plate but UK retailers do not seem to stock libec replacements.


Try a plate from another tripod. I have three different tripods, and the quick-release plates are all interchangeable.

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!!!

How do I replace a leg release lever of a manfrotto 190XB? One of the three leg release levers is missing. I ordered a spare part (R190,304), but I don't know how to put it in place.


Hi Stefan
Possibly some bad news for you..., the Part #R190,304 you ordered is not made for the #190XB tripod..., it is for a model several years older (though it MAY fit)..., (see link for correct parts diagram)!!!!
http://www.manfrottospares.com/download/pdfs/190XB_20061025.pdf
To easiest way to replace one of the top leg castings is to first remove the centre column and then support the tripod in such a way that the (3) legs are not touching the ground (i.e.: all the weight is supported by the casting through which the centre column would normally mount. You will then need to undo the (3) screw (allen key style) that pierce this casting...., (the reason for wanting to support the tripod via the bottom of this casting is that all the small parts SHOULD stay in place when the top casting is separated from the lower casting. Once this has been done..., carefully remove the leg with the damaged top casting...., replace it (making sure the new one is facing the right direction) & then reverse the procedure.

Hope this helps

Is it possible to buy a replacement leg for a GB1140?


I would contact the factory and see if they have replacement part available. Try their website and ask. Most large retail manufactures have parts avaiable.

The leg is slightly off the track, which is a curved piece which fits along the tripod support rail. If you're not careful when collapsing the legs you'll force the leg to go off-track like this.
