        Great For Cartoni Fluid Heads

        Works just like the factory head. Excellent for replacements or to have one for each apparatus, ie, jibs, cranes, etc.

        I'll be calling to find out why this cheap plastic but pricy quick release plat doesn't fit my tripod though it's made for it. Me camera slides around and would fall out if I used it. They don't allow zero stars or I would give it that.

              Comments about Cartoni A500 Quick Release Plate:

              I needed a spare release plate for my Cartoni Fluid HD head. This is the only one that will fit it. The plate works as designed. My only complaint with this plate, as most other plates for other tripod heads, is that they are over-priced.

              Comments about Cartoni A500 Quick Release Plate:

              Man. What a product. I had an incredible need for one specific quick release plate, and sure enough, this was it. I ordered, and received, and used, and my life has never been the same. My friends say things like "you really have it all together now" and "you seem different, like more handsome and confident probably".

              If you are in the market for the A500 Quick Release Plate by Cartoni, this is the one for you.

              I bought two of these in order to replace the one I have lost. It's plastic made, I wish it was tougher.

                    the plate is what it is.. i just didnt get the second larger screw with it (1/4-20 it came with).
                    maybe it's not supposed to come with one--
