Gitzo G1258 tripod

Soon after I purchased the g1258, the center colunm jammed when I pulled it up and the internal, fiber bushing or collar partly broke. It continues to jam on occasion. 1) I'd like to know if this is a common problem and what I can do to avoid it. 2) I'd like to purchase a new part. Can you suggest a place? I tried going to Gitzo's parts catalog to reference the parts diagrams, but I get an error when I click the link. http://www2.bogenimaging.jp/Jahia/

Gitzo Spare Parts The build quality and durability of our products are renowned, but we also pride ourselves on the fact that they are easily serviced, meaning you get the longest return on your investment when you buy a Gitzo.

Should you need to replace a component of your tripod, head, monopod or other product, and prefer to do it yourself rather than let your Gitzo dealer or distributor look after the repair, search this database of pdf diagrams to find your product, and then order the necessary parts from your Gitzo dealer. We do not currently have an online ordering facility.

To search this site, first click on the spare parts link above. Then, either search by product code (eg. G1227LVL) or by product name/description (eg. Leveling*). You can search for complete or partial codes and names using "wildcard" characters (*).

The database only contains diagrams for the most recent versions of Gitzo products (those with black packaging and black/silver product labels) because previous versions of Gitzo products (with blue/white product labels) had the spare part diagram attached. If your product is older, parts diagrams shown on this site may not be backwards-compatible with your version of the product. In case of any doubt, please write to helpdesk@gitzo.com with details and a photograph of your product.

Head won't secure to tripod


Two potential issues. 1. Perhaps you have just not screwed it on tight enough. Just tighten the black knob as much as you can then screw the head on your legs as tight as you can. 2. If you can't even do that I will assume that the hole on the bottom of the head is too large for the screw on the tripod legs, in which case you just need a a bushing adapter. Like this one:

Hi,
As I suspected the Gitzo 5541LS replaces both the GT5540LS and the G1548 tripod. Currently, there is an ongoing rebate until 06/30/2010.
Hope this helps. Andrew Don't forget to vote.
