Hello everyone,

I recently splashed out on a Bren Tripod with the AA legs. One of the 'plungers' that holds one of the two AA leg sections within the frame is stuck in place at the minute. Some WD40 has loosened it up a bit; but I was wondering if it's possible to strip the plunger and spring down, so that I can give it a proper clean. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

All the best,

Chris

The end of the plunger should have a slot in it for a screw driver. Put the driver in place and unscrew the large circular knob. Have you a serial number? Chances are it's an AGE tripod.

Thanks, will give it a try. The only serial number I could find is A.9309. What does AGE stand for?
