Any idea where I can get spare parts for a 680b monopod?

I have managed to break off the bottom lever leg lock!!

I think that Manfrotto are owned by Lowepro now. Try Calumet or intro 2020.

Cheers,

Andy.

I doubt it. He officially recommends them!

I think he was suggesting they be the people to approach for spares rather than sardonically questioning the subject. That would be totally out of character.

Phew! That's OK then, I thought I had committed some sort of sin! LOL

Don't think that Lowepro own Manfrotto, they may have the distribution rights though.

And then Lowepro are distributed by Daymen International.

Would try Manfrotto themselves and see where you get.

Although it may prove as cost effective to buy a new monopod at 40

Or buy a few tools and make one yourself ... baby hacksaw, quarter Whit tap, drill and bits, and lenghts of various sized aluminium box tube which slide inside each other.

Sorry been away watching extras ! I'm not suggesting that there is anything wrong with Manfrotto it's just that I've had trouble in the past getting finicky bits like spares.

Andy.
