Eq5 slow motion knob replacement


Recommended Posts

Hi all

One of my eq5 slow motion control knobs has split. Just cheap plastic.

Does anyone know if there are replacements available anywhere.

Thanks..... can I remove the knobs from these extension cables and attach them.

Well yes you can - but probably easier to just replace the whole cable. The knobs fit onto the end of the cable with a small fixing screw on the knob collar - similar to the end that attaches to the axis control rod on the mount.

The few occasions I've had to repair (or add) slo-mo cables over the years, I simply replace both completely (so everything fits and matches up). If I had a spare single I'd let you have it for nothing. ?
