    Manfrotto R055,04 reviews

    R055,04 Single Spiral Locking Lever for the 055 and 055B Tripods is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works on other (old) Bogen/Manfrotto tripods too! Notwithstanding the product description, these work on my old Bogen 3035 tripod (mid '80s vintage) and I suspect others from tha era. You need to remove an existing lever and see if there is a single spiral ramp or two (as was used in later tripods sold in the '90s) to verify. Also, this product ships with replacement screws but they are only long enough for the lower positions on my old 3035. Not a problem as you can re-use the existing (longer) screws for the upper positions. The levers themselves are the same. Overall - this let me put a great old tripod back into service at far lower cost than replacing it with a new version Manfrotto.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for an old tripod I bought these to replace a broken locking lever on an old Bogen 3021/Manfrotto 055 tripod that I have had for a very long time. It is pretty heavy tripod and I don't haul it around much, but its weight and stability are really needed sometimes. And I'd hate to part with it; it's an old friend that's lasted longer than my first two marriages. B&H is the only place to find parts like these. Great customer service, extraordinary range of equipment and supplies, simply the #1 choice for cameras and equipment. One caution: Manfrotto bought Bogen back in the 90's. If you need parts like this, search under both the Bogen and Manfrotto model numbers to make sure you get the right one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from And I found it at B&H! For the last 5 years I have been unable to use my favorite lightweight (but very sturdy) tripod because the locking lever on one of legs had broken. This is an old Bogen Model 3020 that I bought in 1978 to use when I was the documenting photographer on the scientific team that examined the Shroud of Turin! I tried to repair it on several occasions, but to no avail. I recently did an online search to see if I could find a replacement part and lo and behold, I found it at my favorite supplier, B&H! I ordered the part, it arrived on time (as always), worked perfectly and took less than 5 minutes to install. My old tripod lives again! Thank you B&H! You are always there when I need you!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was very happy to find the part I was very happy to find this part. Initially, I was not aware that there were single ramp and double ramp leg lock levers for my older Bogen tripod. After some additional investigating, I found a part number for the correct single ramp (or single spiral) lever from B&H. The pricing was reasonable, as was the shipping charge. The lever I received was perfect. Hardware (long screw, washer, locking nut) was also provided with the lever. The screw was correct in every way except for the length, I was too short. I was able to re-use my old screw so it was a no harm/no foul issue. The lever works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my favorite tripod I have an older Bogen tripod - have had a couple of these levers broken and could not find replacements for years. Gave up and stored the tripod until I found these only at B&H. Efficient quick and easy ordering online. Could not have been smoother. Easy to use site. Order arrived ahead of expected time. perfect. will return for more from B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back from the dead I have had a Bogen 3021 tripod for many years (maybe 30 ?). For at least ten years it has been in my photographic scrapheap, because the locking levers were broken. I saw the Manfrotto R055 Single Spiral Locking Levers on the B and H website and took a chance that they would work; they did. My Bogen 3021 is back in action. It's a beast.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just glad B&H still sells these! They are the newer version which are stronger than the original. Changed all on my Bogen 055 which is still a fine tripod. Always carry a spare, as they can break in cold weather and due to material aging. I had one that keeps opening on me, so I had to rough up the surface of the lever a bit to stay closed.
