Problem with a neotec 458 not locking properly
May 27, 2013

Just had a look at my neotech 458 tripod and found that one of the legs isn't locking properly, at first the last segment wouldn't lock at all and was free to extend or be pushed back into 'battery' whether or not the lock release button on the leg was pushed. I extended the leg to it's full length then rotated the last leg segment, now it locks but wont unlock when the button is pushed, if I rotate the outer segment against the third leg segment I can slide it back in with some pressure, extended it feels scratchy and needs a bit more effort than the other legs.

Has anyone seen this before and have any advice or should I return it to manfrotto for servicing (if that's possible) ?

Thanks in advance.
