After using this tripod twice, the end that has the female thread on the extension (Telescopic) tube came off in my hands. This end cap seems to have been poorly glued in place. As I won't to keep the unit, I will have to Araldite it, together with some small self tapping screws to re-fix. I am of course wondering what else will fall apart.
I foolishly thought that Hama was a trusted manufacture, silly me. But, maybe this is a one-off? I will never know. As I now have bought the unit I will make it into something sturdy, even if it means I have to weld it together. It does look the part and felt OK, until it feel apart. The suppliers were prompt in sending it. I really can't be bothered to return it as I will make it good.
I have quantity two, 3mm stainless steel screws, holding the threaded portion to the aluminium extrusion together with some araldite. Maybe you will have to do something similar.
