Trying to give something back to the Community...
Somehow and somewhere one of the screws/ bolts on the legs of my Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod had fallen off. After checking the rest were not loose (none of the others were so bizarre this particular one worked lose), it was decision time.
Go to a camera store like Jessops where I would no doubt pay a fortune or try to source the item from a DIY store. So after spending a fair amount of time scouring the various nuts, bolts and screws B&Q sell (and practically on the verge of giving it up as a lost cause as there are SO many), I found the answer:
Machine Screw Pan Head Slotted Zinc Plated 5x16mm- 3/16” x 5/8” – Qty 10
I thought I’d post the details here just in case anyone else needs them.
