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.

  • \$\begingroup\$ 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 ? \$\endgroup\$ Jan 31, 2012 at 18:33
