Hi all, does anyone know where I can get spare parts for a Pentax AF360FGZ flash unit? I have searched high and low, to no avail.....I need a replacement Hot Shoe mount, the one I have is slowly chipping away, and although it's ok for now, it's slowly becoming less so.

Any ideas anyone?

Thx, Dave.

My answer was to buy one of these cheap little blocks and leave it as a permanent fixture on the flash. It has another advantage in that it has a socket for a second flash unit - thus avoiding the loss of the stupidly overpriced and ill fitting socket cap on the camera body.

Further to my post I should point out that the adapter shown is the incorrect one! It is the single contact version that I use with my old Vivitar ring flashes.
You can buy the Pentax specific one for about 25 or Chinese versions for about 8.....

Sorry about that
