Hello,

 

I really need help with my new Gitzo tripod GT5533S, which I purchased online (new) and was testing today. I was extending all 3 sections, and when I got to the last leg (A) and pulled it out, the whole final section (B) and 3 parts (1, 2, 3) just came off. Maybe I unscrewed it a little too far, but I certainly didn't pull it hard, so can't understand how it just came apart like this...

 

This was very expensive and I have no idea of how to get it assembled again! Part #2 seems to be broken, or maybe that's just how it looks. Does anyone have any idea? 😩

 

I took some photos, any help would be very much appreciated!
