Thread: Sticky Tripod Handle

  1. #1

    Default Sticky Tripod Handle

    Hi Guys. I have a Velbon Alta 204AP tripod and have not been using it for awhile now. I just got it out and found that the rubbery locking handles are all sticky. Washing them or cleaning them with wet tissues does not help. Anyone has experience with this and how did you solve it? Otherwise, where can I can the spare replacement handles?

    Most fixes are temporary I think. Check these out:

    Another option is to wrap it with a new material, e.g., black gaffer tape, black tennis racquet grip wrap.

    the plastic part is melting, so just cover it with other material like Mod kandinsky suggested.
