I have not tried asking her. Might be the best idea yet.


OK; so got this from Manfrotto - Bogen 3051 is probably about 20 year old tripod, which they have zero parts for.

The suggestion is that you need a new tripod....the 055 is the comparable to the Bogen 3051. Our Manfrotto rep will follow up with technical support on the inquiry but it's a long shot. If you can email me: Helen@adorama.com with your 'phone number Dideo in the Manfrotto tech team will call you.

I don't need to replace the tripod. All I'm trying to do is the equivalent of finding the manual that came with the BG3052 extension leg kit so I can figure out how I installed the kit. I have the original sliding legs but cannot figure out how to swap them back into the tripod's main legs (replacing the extension kit components) if there was a reason to do so.

I've already talked to techs at Manfrotto with no luck. They passed me on to a camera shop in South Carolina that does a lot of tripod work and their tripod tech couldn't help either.

I have obtained two copies of the manual for you because there were two different versions of this Bogen Tripod, and I'm not sure which one you have. There was one prior to 1998 and a revised version that came out in 1998.

If you would like to email me: Helen@adorama.com I can forward the correct one to you.

Helen is above being great.

Unfortunately, though, the manuals she found were for ordinary use of the tripod and had no disassembly info like I need. She said she'd look further for the kit instructions.

I'll try to find some time to photograph parts of the tripod close up.

Can you post some photos?
