My old Bogen tripod (made by Manfrotto) was made with PLASTIC levers and many have broken. The tripod is useless without them. The tripod has one metal lever. I don't remember where or when I got the lever. Any one have a source for these levers? Phil

In the UK it is possible to buy spares direct from Manfrotto, try them or their importer.

When I had the same problem with my Bogen several years ago. I think I had to buy the whole clamp, not just the lever. I ended up buying a couple because the shipping cost was significant compared to the individual part cost. I purchased the parts directly from Bogen in the US. Later on I needed the spare too.
