        Where I work, the company buys this tripod model. In our gear room, we have a pile of them that are broken. Almost every one of them has a problem with the leg lock.
        At some point in time, the legs will just randomly start to fail. There doesn't appear to be a user serviceable adjustment for the leg locks.

          Comments about Sachtler 4588 Speed Lock 75 CF Tripod w/ 75mm Bowl:

          The leg locks on this tripod are pure junk, and WILL fail at the worst possible times. I've returned it to Sachtler for maintenance once, which they performed for free despite being out of warranty. Yesterday another leg lock failed on me. The first time, I had carried it up a mountain side and the leg fell apart in pieces. This time I was shooting a hockey game and there was no tension from one leg lock... even locked down, the leg slides all the way out. I had to shoot from the lowest collapsed point, about 2 feet off the floor.

          I'm considering sending it back and paying to get it fixed again if only to sell it to some unsuspecting rube off Craigslist, but hate to think what kind of Karma that might bring me. Since I had it fixed the first time, I have been leaving it behind and carrying an unnecessarily large Manfrotto 536 instead, so I really have only used it 5 or 6 times since fixed over a year ago. Whammo, I got bit a second time. Even if they gave me a new one, I don't think I'd trust it. Fool me once, shame on you -- fool me twice, shame on me. You could buy a cheap photo tripod at Wally-World and be more certain of getting your shots. Severe disappointment for such a high-price brand.
