Post by Aegir » Sat Aug 04, 2018 1:27 pm

The little plastic clip has come away. Can this be repaired?

Hi,

Could you please post a picture?

The plastic retaining clip can be plugged back in unless it's physically snapped

It has physically snapped at one end. I can put it back in but when I plug a camera in it will not stay there

If you still have the little piece that snapped off, you should be able to superglue it all back together and make it functional.

Otherwise an elastic band (or two) around the body of the Zero and the camera holder should assist the retaining clip in staying in place.

:lol: The piece is the size of a dust particle. I'll just get another Zero or I'll be the first person in A&E having a Zero detached from my fingers :lol:
