Manfroto Tripods:  Recently I had a tripod leg just fall off while setting up.  No damage and easily fixed since I was at home.  The problem would be if this happened in the field.  It is simple enough to put back together, the problem is that the tensioning screw happens to be a Torx-25.  I have a set of these at home so no issue.  My tip is to remind you to check these screws from time to time since the odds of someone having a TX-25 while out and about is highly unlikely though I now carry a TX-25 tip in my camera bag..
