Question about Photography
SOURCE: One Leg has loss it's grip.
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.

Raise the center column all the way up. Under the head next to the center column are at least 2 or 3 screws. Back them out uing a meduim slotted screw driver. The head should then screw off.

Third link is Australian site.Here is a link for one in the US.I will look also for something closer to you.It's a start though.
Here are some straight from celestron.com
Finally!A link to tripods in Australia.
I was in Perth in the mid 1980's and thought it was beautiful.I was in US Navy.Anyhow,if the last site doesn't work for you,all I did was google tripods in Australia.Probably much cheaper to ship.Good luck and G'day mate!

Testimonial: "THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR HELP.CHEERS ROB"
SOURCE: the plastic leg ht clamps
Well if you don't want to return it and it doesn't seem to you like an easy fix, by comparing how the mounting supports are connected on the legs, than you know you have a defective tripod?
There are multiple kinds of support clamps/brackets you can use or...
I would just go purchase a small roll of Automotive Velcro, (thats the toughest and trongest stuff around and cheap at Walmart), to mount to and strap around it, Or you could use a belt, string anything to wrap or tie around it!
Dollor General sells a small box of I believe (8) long strips of Velcro for $2.00 you can attach to some material, (stronger the better) on both ends and strap it cloed that way! That's also pretty good velcro, but really needs to be sewn or safety pinned to the material!
I really don't blame you, I hate having to return things, its a pain, that is for sure! Atleast you don't have the opposite effect of it closing on you! lol You'd have to take it back then!
