Is there a "lock" position on on the 3 leg spread of this tripod?


-Providing that the image shown is the tripod you own..., the top leg lock levers on each leg is designed to lock the spreader angle of each leg.
-If this is not holding the leg at the correct angle...., either you are putting more weight on it than it was designed to hold..., or the 'cam' on the various locks has worn.
-A 'stop gap' fix for this problem is to insert a very thin wedge between the lever & the leg tube..., thus providing a greater amount of pressure on the tube, (this would need to be done every time the tripod is set up).
-Replacement parts are not available for this tripod & they were not designed to be user serviceable ...., sorry!!!

The lower leg would not lock and comes off.


The grey part might be a shim that fits up into the leg lock in order for it to fit more securely. Ambico is no longer in business, and parts are not available so you might have to replace the tripod if you can't fix it yourself. You find tripods here: www.itripod.com

Hi, Folks!

I just cracked the Velbon's DV-700 tripod head mounting screw, that is on the top of the extending column. I need a replacement for this. Screw is on the top of the column.

Any suggestions?

Thank's in advance

A couple of the lever locks on my Manfrotto 055XB tripod are no longer sufficiently locking the legs so they slip. How do I tighten them?


Use an 8mm, I believe, socket and tighten 1/4 turn the nuts on the lower half of the leg lock. For instance, the top leg lock is connected to the top and middle leg. Tighten the lower 2 nuts (located on the middle leg half of the lock) 1/5 turn. If that does not do it, tighten 1/4 turn again. Be sure not to over-tighten.

I have a nice manfrotto tripod and one of the snaps on one of the legs no longer works, so the tripod now slouches on one leg. Is it worthwhile to repair it, or do I just need to buy a new one? I paid...


If the leg lock is still there in one piece, should be no issue. If you notice, the leg lock covers bothe an upper part of the leg and a smaller diameter lower part. Take a socket (8mm if I remember corectly) and barley tighten the nits on the bottom half of the locfk. Loosen and tighten nuts until rasing and lowering leg is no issue.

Leg lock broken


Assuming you still have the female part with the treads in tact, you can do what I did. I used a hose clamp, the kind used on radiators, but larger. First, take off the lock down knob, then put the hose clamp over the broken plastic housing and mark where the knob would screw through. Then remove the hose clamp, placing it on a sturdy surface and use a 5/16 drill bit to make a hole where the lock down know will pass through. Place the hose clamp over the plastic housing, insert the knob, tighten the hose clamp (but not so much that it restricts the tripod leg from moving) and you are done! I can send you pictures of the process and the final result. It saved me from buying a new tripod! I can be e-mailed at [email protected] if you have questions.

Plastic tabs on leg locks broke


yes with the original plastic locks. "junk" go to ace and you will find some differant lock slides. I did and they are not plastic!

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.
