New leg release clips

According to Manfrotto, the redesigned leg release clips are stronger, and easier to use than the previous designs used on older 190-series tripods. In normal use you won't need to reach for them them much, but when pulled down (as shown) the legs are unlocked and can be swung outwards allowing the tripod to sit almost flat on the ground (with the central column in its horizontal position, of course).
