Your light stand took a tumble in the wind, and your radio took the brunt of the fall! You need a replacement foot so your radio can lock onto a hot shoe again.
Our radios are made from an glass-reinforced resin material, and shouldn’t break with normal usage.
However, if gear gets dropped or knocked over, there is a high risk that some piece of gear will get damaged. A plastic foot allows for a less expensive (and user-serviceable) part to need replacement over a more expensive part like a camera or flash repair. In general, photography equipment like cameras and flashes and radios are not designed to be dropped or knocked over. We’re no exception. We provide a simpler, less expensive, and more accessible repair solution in these situations.
