Weatherproofing Camera Tripods (Continued)
- After removing the white brackets, you will see black plastic tubes. Note that they have circular notches that fit into holes on the leg.
|Note the circular notches.||Squirt some degreaser onto the threads and inside the locking screw.|
- Squirt some degreaser onto the threads and inside the locking screw. Let it work its magic for awhile and then wipe it off with the microfiber cloth. Make sure the threads are as clean as possible. Since the locking screw cannot be disassembled, just soak it in water after degreasing it. Then shake it dry and wipe off with a dry cloth.
- Apply a good amount of the Krytox grease and use your fingers to rub it along the threads so that it's spread out nice and even. Dab a little along the inside of the screw locks too, but not too much as it's hard to clean up. It also makes the grip of the screw less secure, albeit easier to deploy.
|Apply the Krytox grease and spread it evenly.||Repeat the process for any joint that may come into contact with saltwater or sand.|
- Repeat the same process for any joint that may come into contact with saltwater or sand. For example, the bottom screw of the my tripod could use some greasing as threads were getting real tight.
- After greasing all the joints, wipe off the excess grease with a cloth and slide in the legs. Screw them into place and you are done!
