      My mate had same issue and sold his

      I had the same issue with a brand new D36 Open. Correct me if I’m wrong, but is it just your legs with the open top that are slipping?

      I’ve took my box back 3 times to Fosters. We had every D36 leg out in the shop. It seems to be a faulty batch…every black D36 open top leg seems to slip. The silver ones are fine.

      Fosters went out their way to help me. I’ve now got a temporary set of legs as they’ve sent my original open legs back to Rive.

      Chris I think we are talking about different problems. My problem was only with the legs with the Open top. When the telescopic part of the leg was extended, no matter how tight you did the hand wheel on the leg (not the box hand wheel) the leg would still slip. The other 4No legs are fine (these are standard D36 lack telescopic legs, not open).

      Hope you get it sorted.

      my box is the D36 hsp open
      its the new one where you can remove the leg without dismantling the whole box
      I have just being informed by dave glover from bobco that I need to glue some soft rubber to the inside of the clasp this will hopefully stop it slipping
      thanks for you help though guys

      That is a joke,i had a st25 many years ago and the back right hand leg kept slipping.Done my head in and even put a sweetcorn tin under the frame? on one match at the glebe.Got shot of it and got a £200 sensas box,which i found much better.Up to a grand plus for a box and you have to mess about with leg fittings.lol 😮

      No need to keep me informed Chris,as i would never buy a rive again.The joke bit mate was about the shop guy telling you to put rubber bits on the leg block.Also carrying the box on a short walk(where icould not use my trolley the strap broke and the box went down the side of my leg,taking the skin off.(i was wearing shorts at the time and had a john cleese moment? giving that rive the biggest kicking of it’ s life. 😀 😀

      Chris, I have the same box (I think), see link below:

      I certainly would not be glueing anything to the box. As far as I was concerned the box was not fit for purpose and it looked like a manufacturing fault to me, so I took mine back. Fosters we’re very helpful and have now sent the faulty parts back to Rive, and replaced a couple of parts. Unfortunately, Rive will no doubt take forever to sort it. I guess this is where it depends how good the shop is where you bought it from.

      As stupid as this sounds, and apologies if you’ve already tried this, but have you tried swapping the legs around? i.e. put one of the front legs which you know are sound into the back right clasp? Does it still slip?

      Last time I sent something back to Rive they acknowledged receipt 5 days after posting, and then took 5 weeks to give me an update. And that was with me chasing them for answers.

      thanks john I will try that tonight when I am at home john thanks though

      I’m James, not John mate lol.

      I’m 99% sure your issue will be with the leg itself, and not the actual clasp fixed to the box.

      Let me know how you get on.
