Leg locks

Locks that are used to secure tripod/monopod legs when they are part or fully extended. Quick-release clips are the most popular type of leg lock used as they allow rapid adjustment of the tripod height. Tripods with several leg sections have a lock on each section. Leg locks tend to be used regularly and are often on the outside of the legs so they can be more vulnerable to damage. Metal locks are the best as plastic can break if handled without care.
