Manfrotto Rubber Feet
 
Worst case is that you will not find rubber feet for your Manfrotto,as I could not for my Manfrotto monopod.

Home Depot, to the rescue.

Yes, they actually had the exact replacement, in a 2 pack.

I've been away from the list for a little while, so I don't know if you were able to find your spare rubber feet, but you could try contacting Bogen's parts department directly:

P: (201) 818-9500 x244
E-mail: parts@bogenimaging.com

They often still stock parts for discontinued items or will have a virtually identical part for a newer item.

Yours,

Hoi

Thanks for the reply guys..

Sam, what product from home depot did you buy?

I went into the section where they have rubber feet, for chairs, got the exact size to fit my Mafrotto monopod. It came in a two pack, so I should have a spare for a long time.

I use the monopod a lot, on all kinds of surfaces, and these rubber feet are designed for a lot of wear and tear.

I am still using my first one, and it has been over a year since it was slipped on, so, I would say a good bargain.

Hope you find what you need.

Digging through the equipment archive yesterday, and I found my wifes Bogen tripod, can't remember the model. This unit did not have rubber feet, but had the metal cleats, that screw down, through the rubber/hard plastic. The end of the tripod leg has a rubber shoe, which the screw comes out of. This "shoe" is on there to keep out any dirt/debris, when the
cleats are used.

Probably moot to you now, but if you need Bogen/Manfrotto parts, try here:
