Zephyr gimbal handle loose

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I did some searching and saw a few other posts about this subject but I couldn't find a solution other than to call Tiffen.


Anyway, the blue piece that connects the handle to the gimbal on my Zephyr is loose and has a lot of play in it. After just a few days of use the screw will back all the way out and come apart. I know I can tighten it down by taking the handle off but if I tighten it too much the blue piece binds up and doesn't swing freely. If I tighten it just enough so it doesn't bind there is still quite a bit of play in the connection and the screw backs out after a few days. It's almost as if there is a spacer or something missing.


Any suggestions? Is the play in the handle normal and I should just add some lock tite to the screw?
