I need to replace 3 leg locks on my TGT-BK58T tripod. Can I get the locks only? I will replace myself if the parts are available.


camera shops sell tripods for cameras and telescopes
go there and ask if parts are available for your unit

Central shaft is stuck on my dolica tripod proline


Try completely removing the thumbscrew that retains its position, then spray a very little penetrating lubricant inside and see if that will loosen it.

Where can I find replacement rubber feet for the Rocketfish RF-TRP65C tripod?


Go the the BestBuy store and steal one from a display. Apparently the feet are transported to earth from a distant galaxy; impossible to find. I'm certain they're made in China by the gazillions but can't locate a supplier.

There is no way to fix it. You should go to nearest Service centre and change the Camera body part.

Need Replacement Quick Release Plate


Try www.TripodQuickRelease.com for that part. There is listed the widest selection of quick releases and support more brands than any other web site I’ve seen.

Broken elevator column crank handle


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.

Were can i get a foot for a miranda v750 tripod,please. I need the rubber, the screw bit and the bit that fits inside the leg. thankyou.


Sorry, but you can't.

All Miranda branded products were exclusive to DSG (Dixons, Currys) and were the cheapest of the cheap. As such they are not designed to be repaired and spare parts are not available. Any Miranda products which failed during the manufacturers warranty and were returned to DSG for repair were invariably thrown away and replaced with DSG claiming a credit from the supplier.

This is not exclusive to Miranda, most cheap to medium priced brands of all similar products have the same policy. If you want tripods which will last for years with full spare parts support then you have to pay a lot more for the likes of Manfrotto, Gitzo, Velbon, Benbo, Slik and others but they're all only worth it for regular tripod users or for those for whom price isn't an issue.

Even if you could get the spare part, it would cost more than one of the tripods which the likes of Aldi and Lidl regularly sell in the UK for £10. The Aldi version comes with a carry bag, spare quick release plate, carry handle and strap and a comprehensive three year no quibble warranty. They're not on the current stock list, but come in every few months as one of their regular special deals.

If you don't want to replace your tripod, then the next best thing is to simply fashion a wooden plug to fit the end of the damaged leg and maybe fit a rubber foot on the end, like those sold for walking sticks or the the kind sold by larger DIY stores to fit under wooden chair legs.

I hope that my reply has been of assistance and that you can return the favour by rating my answer.

I need a spare part for this tripod, its the arm that you need to spin that makes the camera goes up and down. I need a part number and a price for this component. Thanks, Eran


Sorry that I can't give you a definitive answer, but Velbon do not publish a spares catalogue.

Spare parts are usually available for current/recent models but you need to contact Velbon directly via the web address given below; it takes you to another page which is appropriate to your country. The part which you're after is called a centre column crank handle.

http://www.velbon.co.uk/newvelbon/pages/contact.html

Velbon are at the budget end of the market so spares support and repairs have never been that great, but the company do sometimes simply post you a new tripod instead of repairing the old one.

Note that if you're in the UK and the tripod has failed earlier than can reasonably be expected then it is covered by the Sale of Goods Act (SoGA) for up to six years. Note that it is the seller, not the manufacturer, who is liable under SoGA and the manufacturers warranty is in addition to your statutory rights.
