Sloppy Kathmandu Tripod Design

I bought a Kathmandu Tripod in 2010, I don’t quite remember its price, but then the brand claimed to be the thing to bring for an outdoor adventure.

The camera yaw-axis broken when I was using it in Melbourne, 6 months later! Upon a close inspection, I should note that if a designer intends to design a product to hold an expensive equipment (e.g. a DSLR camera), the design should be sturdier at the respective parts. Shown below is the yaw-axis clamp that was broken due to bad design (reduction of material).
