I bought a knock off collar on amazon (US), I see several on Amazon (UK): http://www.amazon.co.uk/canon-70-200-f4-tripod-collar/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Acanon-70-200-f4-tripod-collar

It's probably the same sweat shop producing them all. Mine is made of some sort of metal with an inner felt lining, and has been trustworthy. There's an inner washer that is not well affixed and is in constant risk of being lost though. If Canon sold these at say $50 USD it would be a "maybe" but at $130 it's a "no no".
