All three legs of the tripod are suddenly floppy. They were fine before the transatlantic flight. Now they flop all over the place. Can't seem to pinpoint the problem. Seems to be a tightening issue of some kind, but don't know how any screws would loosen up while stowed in a bag.
Here we go. It sounds like you might have a problem with a strip thread or oil on the legs. If the thread is stripped you'll have to replace it. If it is not grabbing, wipe the legs down with alcohol or some type of solvant. If the wipe down does not work try a fine sand paper so that it grabs better. Let me know how you make out.

To replace the batteries in each side of the 3-in-1 tripod light, you'll need to slide each light out of the central frame. Once each individual light is out on its own, you should be able to easily unscrew its bottom, giving you access to the battery compartment. Unlike the original Stanley tripod light, the actual tripod legs no longer hold the batteries.
On the original Stanley tripod LED light design, the black tripod leg tips simply unscrewed after you popped them out into the "stand" position. Much simpler to figure out.
Hi all the professional tripod are moving in varying degrees. I also believe that, you made some mistake. I like to know about your tripod. Please send me the tripod brand name & model no also. Thanks.
Call Ritz Camera at 877-999-RITZ (7489). They "might" be able to assist you. Ritz's generic lenses are Quantaray made by Sigma. I don't know who makes the tripod. They are able to provide documentation for you, but I don't know if they will. Ritz has an online help form that you can fill out on their web site also
The little 'hooks' on the bottom of the legs 'snap' into each other to secure the legs together. Each leg has a 'hook snap' which clicks into place with the other legs. It is merely a way to secure the legs from flopping open. I bought the same tripod, a good solid piece of equipment. No instructions but its easy enough to figure out. Hope this helps.
I would avoid using a lubricant on your tripod legs, because you run the risk of the legs not tightening down anymore. I would try cleaning the tripod thoroughly first, because most of the time this is caused by dirt. If that dosen't work I would try rubbing on a small amount of candle wax onto the legs, and then wipe the legs down with a clothe.
take it apart, there is a rubber ring like a belt or rubber band, either broken or missing. you will have to find a relacement for that, may have to take apart another leg to have one to compare, course I don't honestly know where you will find that piece. too take it apart just keep spinning the lock counterclockwise until it comes off. good luck.
