    I ordered 2 spare plates for my Velbon tripod. Not because the other one was broken/lost but to glue a kitchen timer on it. On the kithen timer i mounted my GoPro360 camera and that's how I make 360° timelapse videos.

    Parts fit perfect, no complaints :)

    Such a relief

    Takes a little getting used to since it doesn't fit smoothly - have to finagle it.Extremely useful feature of the tripod. Allows greater flexibility in picture sessions.

            Perfect for the price. I use an MX-2000 tripod for some freelance cinematography and this little mount was all I was lacking. I was so excited when it arrived, it fit perfectly to my tripod. Now I can make documentaries without having to borrow someone elses tripod.

                            I bought two Velbon tri-pods years ago and now use them as backups here and there. Since they are not my primary tripods I managed to lose the camera platform and thankfully B&H had the replacement I needed.

                              This is the quick-release plate that mounts a camera to the Velbon 6000 (and others) tripod. I've had this tripod for 10 years or so and it's served my amateur family photo/video purposes just fine.

                              My 12 year-old daughter and her pal used it to make a class project, and the next time we needed the tripod, to record a family memorial service, the mounting plate was mysteriously missing. Couldn't have been the two 12 year-old girls' fault; oh no! Tears, wailing; persecuted outrage that I'd even think she lost it. Must have been a thief in the night who took nothing but that very part of the tripod that makes it usable.

                              B&H had the part in stock at the best price with shipping, so I ordered 2. They showed up in about 5 days and fit perfectly. Now one is on the tripod in its case in the closet, and the other one is in a secret secure place only I know about, where I keep all the other things teenagers can't keep track of but without which, all our gizmos and doo-dads are useless. Thanks, B&H! Your site is stored in my "Favorites" folder for sure.

                                School library Needed several because originals "walked" away with camera check out.
                                Found it here at the best price. Love doing business with B&H

                                  Although this does not exactly fit my tripod, this is the closest I can get as a replacement quick release plate.

                                  With a little tweaking, it fits perfectly well on my tripod.

                                    This is my first purchase from B&H
                                    The product arrived in quick time and in good shape.
                                    The Plate fit my tri-pod as advertised and all of my cameras fit the bolt stud.
                                    If needed, I would buy it again.
                                    I would definitely buy it from B&H, for the price AND the service.

                                        Happy I didn't have to throw my tripod out because I couldn't find a replacement piece for the longest time.

                                            These quick release plates work just as designed with Sony tripods. Good fit, nice constructions. A little pricey, but no questions about quality.

                                                Just like the original that came with my tripod that I conveniently lost before I wanted to use it. B&H got it to me quickly with free shipping and had the lowest price (shipping included or not).
