How to tighten a Manfrotto 680B

  1. I have a Manfrotto 680B that has been slipping down on me during the last few weeks. After some research, I've learned that I could fix this issue with the little plastic wrench that came with the monopod.
    The problem is, I have no idea where I placed that wrench. I've read that I could use some type of hex wrench, but in looking at the top clamp on the monopod, where it needs to be tightened, I can't figure out where I would tighten this.
    Can anyone help me?
     
  2. It is a metric allen key. You tighten the allen screw in the locking mechanism.
    Losen the joint, tighten the screw a bit, lock the joint. Repeat until you get the tightness that you want.
