Manfrotto Replacement Pan Handle Locking Knob Video Head

Apparently this does happen, and it could happen to you. Right now, i've lost two of the locking knobs which fit the pan handle on the Manfrotto Video Heads 701HDV, and the one found on the 561BHDV-1 Video Monopod.

Luckily they do carry Manfrotto replacement knobs at B&H in case you happen to run into the same problem.

  1. @Emm - that tip worked great! thanks so much! I almost thought I needed to buy another monopod because of the problem but now it's good as new 😀

    @VanWeddings - The tool works great, but make sure to unlock the clamp first. Tighten with the tool and then lock it again. I don't see why that wouldn't work.

  3. exact thing happened to my monopod. I still have the lever but the screw is missing. what I've found is that there are some advantages to just using the bare nut. for one, you don't have to worry about the lever turning into the bottom of the camera.

    a bigger problem with my 561 monopod is that the top stage doesn't stay locked tight anymore. I've used the plastic tightening tool that came with the monopod, as well as tightened the metal screw, but it's still not tight enough. pushing hard on the top stage of the monopod will cause it to slowly collapse down. any ideas on how to fix that?
