Broken Tripod Height Adjustment Bracket
      #4404335 - 02/22/11 05:31 PM Attachment (27 downloads)

I noticed today that on one leg of the tripod on my Versa Go mount that the plastic bracket where the height adjustment screw is, it is cracked. Maybe I screwed it in to tight, I don't know! I've had the mount about 30 day's now. I emailed Orion with a picture of it. I haven't heard from them yet so I don't know what to expect. It looks to be riveted on the legs so I don't think I can replace the bracket. What do ya think?

I've had very good experiences with Orion over the years. As long as you're still under warranty, you should be all set.

I called Orion and they are shipping me a new tripod leg with a return shipping lable for my broken leg to ship back. Kudo's for Orion.
