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.

NEED A CLIP TO REPLACE BROKEN CLIP TO EXTEND THE LEG ON THE TRIPOD.

You probably will not find one, as the tripods are imported and very low cost and they do not stock parts.

However you can buy a hose clamp like what you use on engine hoses put that around the broken leg and tighten it down.

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.

Broken leg clip on Manfrotto Modo 785B tripod the head is non-removable on this model and I don't want to have to replace whole tripod so is there somewhere I can buy a new leg clip or get it...

Yes you can. But I saw that your Manfrotto is possible to buy for 50 Euro.
Anyway the part you need is the full leg called CODE:
R785,203B
you can see the datasheet on the spare part site of Manfrotto:

I have a Manfrotto 058 tripod. One leg wont hold weight & retracts under load. This model uses a quick release lever at the top of the leg to control the telescopic height of each leg. How can I repair...

If you notice, the legs locks are attached to bothe the upper part of the leg and the sloghtly smaller diameter lower. Take a socket (8mm I believe) and tighten the lower 2 nuts to the bottom of the leg lock.

Vivitar tripod V900 has a broken friction level

Vivitar has been out of the tripod business for a few years now. They may no longer have the parts. You may be able to find another V900 and scavage the parts. Make sure the model numbers match exactly. The V900SE is a different year and does not share the same parts as the V900.

ART055 manfrotto pro tripod

Hey there fotoflika, I have had a similiar problem in the past and found replacement parts unavailable. My solution was to drill a small hole through the leg section, and I used a similiar size allen key to stick in the hole, effectively locking the leg in place. You could drill several holes for different extension lengths. Crude I admit, but cheaper than buying a new tripod.

Can't figure out how to straighten and level the camera

if you have lost a srew or wing nut, it will be loose where there should be one. set it up and then try to raise or move it around in one spot. iof it moves than look for a screw hole. the handle itself sets the rotation try unloosing the handle..

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/james_1cb31da1bc8c6102

Libec THM20

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.
