SockFoon C MacDougall: What a brilliant idea. The camera works again. Thank you much.
gear head: shes pretty,
tlgoldbach: My battery door broke, I sent to Nikon to fix and now it has broken again. A better solution would be Nkon fixing the problem. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that has this problem. It breaks for no apparent reason too.
Aydosh1991: Brilliant idea. Very useful. Thank you for sharing.
Robert Smith: The screw thread for the tripod is called a 1/4" #20 that's 1/4" wide and 20 threads per inch. If you get a 3/8" long 1/4-20 screw with this bracket it'll look more elegant. It appears the bracket you bought had a concave bevel for the screws to sit flat. So if you get a flat finish 1/4-20 x 3/8" screw it'll look like it was designed that way and you can just push the bracket to the side when you need to access the batteries.
chrinamint: Am I the only one who gets no sound for this video?
fran piraino: thanks you saved me time and money, I did just about like you did, it will work fran
Phil Adelphia: Excellent solution!!!!!
dan wojdyla: I am currently using the duct tape and it does get loose and leaves a sticky residue. I like your idea of the bracket and I will try it. Good thinking. Nice and helpful video tanks !!!!
jellybeanOH: Great idea. I'm going to try this on my L100. I have a headband wrapped around it for now. Thank you for sharing.
Odian Levy: I have to admit when I saw the duct tape I thought this was a joke. But those mending brackets are such a good idea. I might try that instead of buying a new door.
bpadlows: What a great idea! Thanks!!!
pacotacolishus: Good idea. And nicely presented. I've been using the tripod but hadn't gone the extra step to simplify it more. Thank you
jeff young: hi there thanks for the tip on an easy fix. ill share mine.. I went on ebay bought a new door for under 6 bucks. it was so easy to change. Yours is a good fix too! but I wanted to fix it right so for a temp repair i like it though
Andrea Friedell: I am glad to see that I'm not the only one with this problem. Lots of helpful comments on YouTube, and I think I like the rubber band one the best.
ggomen08: I had the same problem with my L-20 Nikon too. After seeing your video, I went to my work shop found a small "L" brace like for repairing a wooden picture frame and cut off the excess so it was straight. I then checked my jars of bolts and found one with the correct threads. It was too long so I sawed it down to the correct length. I never had to leave the house or spend any money. Thanks for the that great tip.
Heather Montgomery: I was going to say 'genius idea' but several people took the words out of my mouth, imagine that! Thanks for sharing a great solution.
Juan Lozano: You are a "Coolpix' lady. Thank you.
John Hill: Only problem is that the tripod screw mount is also plastic, and after enough battery changes, it will break, too.
