    Hi,

    I have removed the back ground glass from my Cambo sc 2 and now I don't know how to place it back .
    I have noticed following a picutre on internet that the 2 metal pieces wich attach the ground glass to the frame should be I the same position of the frame so when you place the frme in a table it should stay flat but if you see in the pictures of my back ground glass the metal pieces and the hook is not aligned and t in the hook which is in contact with the table and keeps the frame sloping.

    I don't know if the problem is that the spring has moved and it is broken or something,
    I have also attached a picture of the spring to show its position.

    I am a bit desperate with that so if anyone could help me I will really appreciate,
    many thanks in advance.

    Ah, you removed it completely wrongly and pulled the two metal pieces from behind the springs. You need to get them back behind the springs as shown in this pic:

    See how the two metal pieces have hooks on the end, this grabs the metal bar on the frame, I'm sure you saw this when you removed it. The correct way to remove it is to press straight down on the ridged part of the two metal pieces. This allows it to clear the bar and you can slide it over and it lifts straight out. Very easy.
