        Comments about Velbon Quick Release Platform:

        I have a Heiwa Model HS-744 video tripod and needed another Quick Release Platform. This Velbon QB-5L fits perfectly in the 2" wide dovetail locking mechanism. The other dimension was a bit smaller - should be 1.88" but this Quick Release measured 1.71" (most people may not care since it does hold a camera securely). I wanted the 1/4-20 screw to be centered on top of the tripod, so I epoxied two white .085" thick spacers to each side of the Quick Release to create a perfect fit. See photos.

          I got a nice sturdy tripod at a rummage sale, but it was missing the plate. Web searches gave complicated
          cross referencing,foreign web sites and higher prices than I expected. B&H had a simple reference chart,and
          a picture of it.

              simple part, I have a Great Velbon tripod but lost the Quick release platform. Got around to looking for on and found it right of the bat and in stock for a reasonable price at B&H. Fast Delivery simple transaction and exactly what I needed. Couldn't ask for more. The Prompt service is what makes the part GREAT!

                    I'm very happy with this. I do short films and recently I found a tripod for $[*] on [*]. It turned out to be a Velbon S-900. This piece fits my DSLR Rebel camera and the tripod perfectly and is made to last. You don't need any tools or anything to take it on and off. A quarter works to tighten and loosen the screw. A quarter for God's sakes. I'll be buying more from these guys down the road. They can be trusted.

                              This fit a fluid-head tripod that I bought at the flea market for $3 so it was a total steal. Love that the top of the quick release is cork so it doesn't scratch the camera. Wish the screw had a handle for hand tightening (it has a flat head screwdriver thing, can still be hand tightened though)

Allows me to put the head back in service, saving cost of buying whole new head. Kids can use for their video projects without breaking bank on gear!

                                    I bought a Pro Albinar 9500 35mm/Video Tripod for very cheap at a garage sale. I got this Quick release platform for it as the original was missing. It fits and works perfectly! I mostly use this for general landscaope and solar system photos (Moon, Sun, Sunset) and other things where holding the camera is not an option. the only Con I can think of is that it cost twice what the used tripod did. Not really a con though. I would absolutely buy again and/or recommend to a friend.

                                      I bought a used tripod at a thrift store but it was missing the quick release platform. B&H was very helpful in finding a replacement. It works great, fits well, and very useful.

                                        I purchased this Velbon platform with the help of your sales staff, who confirmed that I had selected the correct model# for my specific tripod.
                                        Received it a short few days later.
                                        It is a perfect fit and works flawlessly.
                                        Thank you.

                                            I purchased this part as a replacement part to use with my tripod. It works great. I like the fact that it is a quick release.
                                            I haven't any complaints.
