I have a tripod that has carbon fiber tubes. There is a metal end piece on the center tube that has fallen out. What kind of glue/adhesive should I use to reattach it?

broken tripod tube


I would recommend two-part epoxy resin, and the addition of a pin. Basically you would:

  • pre-drill a hole through the tube and the cap
  • mix the resin
  • apply resin to both the inside of the tube and the cap
  • join the two pieces with a nut and bolt

EDIT Looking at your pic again, I see that there is a place for a screw to lock in the cap. Maybe take it to a hardware store and figure out if it’s an M4 or M6 and use the screw instead of drilling again...
