I have two separate tripods from different manufacturers. For whatever reason, the pitch adjustment is loose on both of them. This often causes the mounted camera or cellphone to fall way out of position during the capture session. In extreme cases, I've even seen this cause the current tripod to fall over with the capture device onboard... It's particularly problematic with bulky, heavy cameras.
There is a knob on both tripods that looks like it's supposed to tighten and set the pitch adjustment, but I can crank that baby down tight and yet the pitch adjustment still seems loose (See Picture of my best tripod).
Are both of my tripods defective? If so, is there a hack I can use to keep my tripods from losing the pitch adjustment in the middle of a capture session?
