    Wista 45D --- Bottom of backs slips out of clips

    Does anyone else have a 45D and experience where when spinning the back or just opening the door on the glass the bottom hooks of the back release so it is just hanging by the top clips? I have this happen on both my 4x5 back and my 6x9 back. Its just like the back rests in the clips but does not hold well.

    Any thoughts?


    Thanks

    Clips loose or bent down? Pictures might help.

    Im looking at my camera....
    check if the clips are 90deg to the body? if not they can be straightened.... held on by two tiny screws. flatten them n reinstall. also check to see if the matching latches on the bottom of the back are damaged or worn?

    Are the top latches working properly?

    Top work great. They keep the backs on even after it slips off the bottom. I am going to disassemble and see what is up.

    Thanks all
