Hi,
Recently bought used LeverGlide HH -stand. Unfortunately back plate part holding the lever bearings is broken. (sorted out with the guy that sold it, no problem there - nice discount :) )
So next task: try to see if compatible spares still exist.

Question is, how to identify the specific model? Attached the photo of bearing holder plate - the side that is not broken.
And what would be good place to look for spares? Preferably Finland, or somewhere near.

There seems to be three editions of LeverGlides in Tama Spares -section:
Latest, with fancy red bearings - mine is older:
https://www.tama.com/world/support/parts/hardware/hi_hat_stand/HH905D.html

Two older models:
https://www.tama.com/world/support/parts/hardware/hi_hat_stand/HH905N_2014.html
https://www.tama.com/world/support/parts/hardware/hi_hat_stand/HH905N.html

I think that spare Im looking is either
1-8​
HH905-110​
Back plate w/ Lever Glide unit

or HH905N110 if it is 2011 edition.

Called local Tama -dealer. Friendly service! They said that they can arrange spare for the latest model - but they were not sure, if it is compatible with the older models.

So, advice very much appreciated.

Hum; hard to tell. Looking at mine which is much older it looks the same as your picture.

I don't know what changes they made over the years and the parts list pictures are terrible. Make sure the foot petal design is the same, mine is different. It could be that they are all the same. It would be nice if you could call Tama.

Did your dealer give you a price; you might ask if it is returnable. I ordered a chain assembly over a year ago and it took almost two months to get it.

I would email Tama directly and ask them if there's any way to tell year of manufacturer. If I can get over to storage I'll take a look at my Tama lever Glide and let you know.

Well your photo leaves a lot to be desired as far as identifying your stand, but it looks like an Iron Cobra stand. Either a 905 or 905N. 905's have the more black foot board where the 905n has more machining of the aluminum. A simple google search will bring up the clear differences. Either way, I believe both stands are exactly the same, just that the "N" version has the new pedal design.

Lever glide vs non lever is easy to spot as well by the linkage of the pedal to the rod.
