I just closed one of the 3 snap-down locks at the top of the legs on my Gitzo Explorer G2227, and it looked off center compared to the other two clamps. I opened it again and it came off in my hand, with a crack in the plastic where it enters the rectangular hole in the leg.
I looked up repairs at Bogen/Manfrotto. They do not list replacement parts for the tripod, and want $199 to service it. It looks to me like a 5-minute, do-it-myself repair but I don't know where to get the part. I also cannot find my bill from several years ago, but I thought Gitzo tripods had lifetime warranties.
Anybody have an idea of how/where to get replacement parts?
