D-FA 70-200 Tripod Collar Replacement Base

I somehow broke the tripod collar base on my D-FA 70-200. One of the cleats is broken off. Called Precision Camera, but they do not sell parts. Have a email in to Pentax USA, but am not hopeful.

Does anyone know where I can purchase a new one?

Hmm, in the US I think you'd have to send the lens in to Precision, sadly.

You could try to call Pentax HQ directly. I once did that and they sent me the part free of charge and so fast that I received it even earlier than expected.

I had a similar thing happen to my 60-250 lens. Tried all the same avenues. " Send the lens to Precision" I was told. Finally ordered this foot from Ebay and just changed the broken part from the donor.
Perhaps this would work for yours?

Thanks for the suggestion. I may have to try that.
