We Repair Tripods, Monopods and Heads.

Standard

screenshot055XPROBYes, we can repair any tripod, head, monpod or products listed here  If there is any doubt as to whether you can DIY (do it yourself), or if you have the correct tools; then send us the product, and we can make the repair or find suitable replacement parts.  For more info on repairs Click here.

We strive to have our Manfrotto spare parts in stock all the time.  That can be difficult since none are actually made in the USA.

We strive to repair Manfrotto heads, tripod and monopods within 3 working days. Generally there is only a $ 25 repair fee + parts and shipping.  Un-available parts are only one problem that will slow a repair.  Fingernail polish, Super Glue, Loc Tite and other glues and epoxies that you may be tempted to use to make a repair should be avoided.  While you may be able to temporarily fix something with these items, having to remove glues and adhesives will double and triple the time required to make a fix.  This slows us down, since not all epoxies and glues do no have solvents to dissolve them after they are cured; they must be chipped away without damaging the underlaying screws or channels.

If there is a lot of parts that are broken, it may not be economically feasible to repair a tripod or head, but it could make sense to trade it it and buy a new or different model.

Whether for trade in or for repairs click here, send your name, address, daytime phone and email address along with your tripod to:

Once we have it, we will evaluate it and contact you.  Please send us your daytime phone so we can reach you during business hours.

How to Find Your Head Model Number

Standard

Pan head model number

If you are going to DIY (do it yourself)  a Manfrotto head repair, then you need to know how to find the model number.  Manfrotto heads and tripods have different model numbers.  So if you see a model number on the head, it identifies the head only.  Likewise, tripods have their own numbers; a Manfrotto 055xb is identifying the tripod only.

Manfrotto 496RC Head

The most common place for the head model to be found is on the pivot sides or above the pan axis.  The name plate onlater Manfrotto heads, or on video heads there is often a Manfrotto name plate that will have the model number. The ball head to the right has both a serial bumber on the top, and a model number near the base, with the name Manfrotto.  The model number of the head is almost always with the Manfrotto name.

We recommend you use extreme caution when attempting to repair certain video heads.  In many of the larger video heads, there is a very large spring, under a lot of tension, that requires some specialized tools to disassemble and reassemble.  If that spring is let out improperly, it could not only do personal injury, it is possible to break part of the housing, bend the flanges or mess it up to where the head is almost useless.

This model number is on the handle

If you cannot find the Manfrotto model number, and it is in need of repairs, you can always send it to us.   We can repair any tripod that we have listed on our website, as long as the parts are available.  On tripods we service, with in stock parts (click here to see models we stock parts for) , we strive for a 3 day turnaround.  Costs vary, but simple repairs can be as low as $ 25 labor + parts + $ 11.00 shipping.

If you send us a note with your name, address, day time phone number, email we will call or email you with the estimate for repair.
