My Gary Fong collapsible on my Flash Nikon SB600 cause my flash to fold sideways even if it 90 deg rotated. This is happening when I move just a bit. The lock button don't lock the flash tilt.

Gary Fong collapsable on Nikon SB600. Flash is folding.

Do you have any solutions? Am I the only one with this problem?

Seems like your lock button is broken, my SB600 resists movement until the button is depressed.

EDIT (note to self: test before you post), actually it resists being raised, it can be lowered without depressing the button. Quite stiff though, the Fong must be quite heavy.

I'm not sure it is, since it's locking all position except for 75-60-45 deg. Is yours locking all position, even those ? – Philippe Lavoie Jan 31 '12 at 18:33
Yeah it's the silicon one. "Collapse" – Philippe Lavoie Jan 31 '12 at 19:40
