The trigger on this #1 camalot is blown out obviously. I used a small zip tie to keep it in place but that was kind of bulky.

What would you do/use to make the engage the wire and plastic trigger again other than a zip tie. Just looking for ideas.

Thanks!

I used to use Wired Bliss but I guess they are no more. Their Facebook site suggests the company below but I have no experience or knowledge of this company

Bend a paperclip into a rectangle so it can be hidden under the trigger. You could get both wires attached and prevent the other one from failing.

You could weld it.

I realized I was putting too much thought into this. It's on my "B" rack anyways. Behold! Frankencam!

Repair job...

And if anyone is wondering, .050 gage weed whacker wire fits perfectly into the trigger wire holes of mastercams and camalots.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
