    Just attach one of these little gadgets to the bottom of your cameras and they're always ready to quickly mount onto your tripod. I would have one for each camera, or highpower binoculars that are able to use a tripod. Just make sure they're always tight. I lost one this winter as I was out taking pictures in the snow....this time I ordered 2.....one for a backup. AS far as I know they're only useful with Velbon tripods.

                          I'm so glad to find an affordable solution with the tripod we've owned! Our tripod was borrowed and the attachment didn't return with it. We were about to buy a new one, when we found your products online.
                          Thank you for offering just the solution to a nearly "brand-new" tripod. You helped us out, and we'll keep your website in mind for other camera accessories.

                            I am a naturalist and use the tripod for a spotting scope and cameras. I used to change from a wide angle lens to telephoto and that was a hassle in the field.

                            With two cameras I eliminated the lens changing but still had to move the quick release from one camera to the other. With the second quick release platform changing from the wide angle to telephoto is a breeze!

I would have one for each camera, or highpower binoculars that are able to use a tripod. Just make sure they're always tight. I lost one this winter as I was out taking pictures in the snow....this time I ordered 2.....one for a backup. AS far as I know they're only useful with Velbon tripods.

                                You attach this plate to the base of your camera & then attach it to your tripod.

                                Attaches easily with, a coin, a key or small flat head screw driver.
                                It fastens, sturdily to the camera & tripod & is easy to get on & off, yet stable & sturdy.

                                I have no complaints.

                                The product works well with my Velbon S-6000 tripod. A little larger than I'd like, but it fits snugly and works as expected.

                                      I keep multiple of these for different cameras. Fits, tight, doesn't come loose from the camera or tripod. Somewhat bulky when attached to camera, but not base, but that's the only platform my tripod uses.

                                        I lost the original quick release platform for my tripod when I was on vacation. I found a replacement in your catalog and received it within a few days. It fits perfectly. Now I can use my tripod again.

                                          Because this part is not permanently attached to the tripod, I often leave it or lose it. It works great with my digital camera and the Velbon tripod.
