Does the pan lock knob hit the leg hinges when ...

Does the pan lock knob hit the leg hinges when it's tightened? I've had similar looking tripods that have this issue, making it impossible to fully tighten depending on the location of the knob.
Asked by: Ryan
So I just made a comment that yes, this does happen. However, after considering a review by Philip a bit I decided if there was something wrong with our 6 tripods. I looked carefully and found a solution to the problem. There is a sticker on the outward side of the knob indicating how to lock the pan. If you remove it there is a phillips head screw you will need to remove. After that you need to pull/pry off the plastic knob from the metal drum it is on. The drum has ridges as does the inside of the plastic knob. Make sure the drum is spun to the locked position and slide the knob back onto the drum in the orientation you want the knob to be in when locked. Put the screw back in and, if you can, cover the hole with the sticker. I'm not sure how all 6 of our tripods ended up this way but there is the solution. I would however recommend not having straight up be the locked position, as it make the unlocked position still partially locked and panning is not quick this way.

Does the zoom controller work with an A7s3 with a Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS as the Lens?
Asked by: Scott
Using this Movcam adapter https://bhpho.to/3lOoA5x should achieve the desired result with the lens and camera you're referencing in your inquiry, using a proper Sony LANC controller. However, other LANC controllers may also work, but may have limited functionality.
